    “It was quirky.”

    ..quaint and comfortable..great location in town. I would recommend it to others but make the following house keeping suggestions. The kitchen knives are blunt and cheap..couldn't cut vegetables. The washing machine was full of old laundry and no detergents. The I fo books could do with updating also instructions on how to turn heater on...I couldn't work it out.

The property

Once you're inside this beautifully traditional cottage, you'll be charmed by those gorgeous old beams and cute little doors, but impressed by the level of style and sheen throughout the cottage. Ingenious design makes the most of the petite but perfectly formed living space, and a romantic double bedroom is made truly special by an attractive vaulted ceiling. With the benefit of a peaceful setting within one of the Lake District's most vibrant villages, Cobblestone Cottage is only a stone's throw from sophisticated shops, tempting eateries, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and the bliss of Lake Windermere's shores. What a perfect little couple's retreat! == Accommodation in detail Approach via a covered, shared cobbled yard, also used by a joiner and a plumbers firm, in a conservation area of Ambleside. Up a small flight of stone steps to the entrance way and patio. The living room area, with original oak beams is cleverly laid out to include a well-equipped kitchen, dining space when required and a comfy, cosy sofa. Upstairs to the double bedroom, with old oak beams and vaulted ceiling. A cute arched door leads to the shower room. A washer and dryer are housed in the external secure store. Location This traditional Ambleside holiday cottage places you within short strolling distance of all the facilities, shops, restaurants and attractions Ambleside has to offer. Couples will be delighted by the choice of excellent restaurants in Ambleside, including the acclaimed Glass House restaurant once visited by Gordon Ramsey, and also the opportunity to walk a short distance to the shore of Lake Windermere for a romantic lake cruise. The village centre is stuffed with tempting delis and cafes, as well as several cosy pubs for a heartier meal! Ambleside is widely-regarded as a gathering point for walking in the Lake District, and advice on routes and equipment is easily found in the many outdoor shops and the tourist information centre. Ambleside's historic centre includes such attractions as the famous 'Little Bridge House'. Nearby is Rydal Mount and Gardens, William Wordsworth's best-loved family home. At the heart of the Lakes, Ambleside is a great base for exploring the region. The A593 leads to the breathtaking Langdale Valley, and on to Coniston. The A591 leads north past Rydal Water to historic Grasmere; surrounded by the scenery that inspired William Wordsworth. Our tip for a romantic Sunday drive - Join the Kirkstone Pass road between Windermere and Ullswater. This dramatic driven route takes in the some fabulous and quite breathtaking scenes, with the chance to stop off at the fabulous Queen's Head country pub for an unforgettable meal.

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

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
