  • Alan

    “A great place to stay and convenient being on the centre of town .”

    Very spacious and comfortable. A pity about creepy stairs landing floor boards but with the age of the building it is too be accepted.

The property

With permit parking in the centre of Ambleside, this Grade II listed traditional whitewashed cottage is a real gem. Oozing with character and original features - stone-flagged floors, oak exposed beams, characteristic thick walls and deep-silled cottage windows - but styled up to scratch with modern furniture, fabulous fitted kitchen and luxurious bathrooms. Birchcroft is a quintessential Lakeland hideaway. If you're discovering Ambleside for the first time, or returning to a place you love, location doesn't come much easier than this. == Accommodation in detail Central Ambleside parking permit for convenient access to property and village. Entrance hall leads to lounge, which is open to, but separate from, the dining area. Stone-flagged floors throughout this living area with sumptuous rugs for warmth. A couple of steps lead to modern fitted kitchen. Back door leads out to the small patio area. Upstairs find two adorable and cosy bedrooms with luxurious bathrooms and TV. Location Central Ambleside permit parking gives you reliable access to the delights of the village; varied shops, cafes, excellent restaurants, pubs, bars and cinema. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from nearby Waterhead Pier, ferrying passengers the full length of the lake with stops at Bowness and Lakeside. Ambleside's location is also ideal for keen walkers; numerous spectacular routes begin nearby and the village is renowned as a hotspot for hiking gear and advice. For exploring, the A591 road leads effortlessly south to Bowness, north to Grasmere and on via simple navigation to the Langdales and Coniston.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
