    “Beautiful cottage and the location was excellent and very quiet, you would not have thought you were in the centre of Ambleside.”

    The kitchen had everything you would need and the bathroom was of a high standard. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again. Nothing negative to say.

The property

A secluded and romantic retreat, with a village centre location that's hard to beat... Ambleside is bustling and vibrant throughout the year and from Courtyard Cottage you never have far to go to reach your favourite restaurant or bar or see the latest films. Convenient yet secluded from the hustle and bustle, Courtyard Cottage is a real find. In the winter the cottage is warm, cosy and inviting, while in summer the totally private courtyard and rockery, is a wonderful place to sit out for a coffee in the morning sun or share a drink at sunset. Sitting in this secluded, quiet sun trap, it is almost impossible to believe that the centre of Ambleside, and all it has to offer, is only a stone's throw away. Courtyard Cottage is an ideal place for a relaxing break in the lakes at any time of year. The delightful interior, blending country cottage-style charm with sophisticated modern comfort, has everything you could need for a wonderful holiday. Courtyard Cottage is very popular and enjoys many repeat bookings. The property has received a Gold Award from Visit England for "Exceptional quality of accommodation and Customer Service". Parking in the designated space requires reversing up a sloping driveway from the one way system and luggage will need to be carried a short distance to the property. A parking permit is also provided to give guests the choice of using a nearby car park instead. == Accommodation in detail From your private off-road parking space, a one minute stroll up a gentle slope and a short flight of attractive Lakeland stone steps lead to the attached cottage with its enchanting furnished courtyard. The entrance hall, with oak floor, leads to a chic yet homely living / dining room with leather sofas and a window to your courtyard. The contemporary kitchen has all you need for dining in. The king-size bedroom features a lovely oak bed, and also overlooks your private courtyard. The second bedroom has a double bed with oak furniture. The bathroom is modern, fresh and beautifully tiled with shower over bath. Location A holiday cottage in Ambleside is a real treat for a romantic break in the Lake District. With the stunning shore of Lake Windermere and its memorable lake cruises only a stroll away, the village centre is alive with lose-yourself shops, tempting delis, indulgent cafes and acclaimed Lake District Restaurants such as the famed 'Glass House'. You'll find traditional Lakeland pubs, interesting historic buildings, friendly local character and a host of experts just waiting to give you advice on the most unforgettable walking routes in the Lake District. For day trips throughout the Lakes, a bolt hole in Ambleside is an ideal one. Whether you're walking in Langdale, driving the Kirkstone Pass or heading to William Wordsworth country in Grasmere, you'll make simple journeys with no complex navigation. The A591 provides a simple route north to Rydal Water and Grasmere, or south to Windermere and bustling Bowness. Of course, you could always take the boat!

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 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.
