The property

This pretty courtyard country cottage nestles in a peaceful backwater just off the absolute heart of picturesque and bustling Ambleside village. Warm in character yet contemporary in style, we are sure you will love Ecclerigg Cottage. Step foot inside and be instantly charmed by 21st century chic style, which blends so effortlessly with Lakeland life, people call this cottage the 'Tardis', come and see why... One or two couples can spread out here, relax and soak up those two bathroom facilities. Only a stone's throw away is Ambleside, alive with excellent restaurants and bars to tempt you out and here, walks are in abundance straight from your doorstep. Lake Windermere is also a short level stroll and this cottage is designed to provide a perfect holiday at any time of the year and help recharge those batteries. == Accommodation in detail Entrance into the superb living room with view over the courtyard towards the mountains and deep cushioned furnishings to ensure relaxation. The spacious kitchen / dining room has everything you may need. Upstairs to the bedrooms, one king size with ensuite facility and 1 super king zip link double or twin which boast the wonderful outlook towards The Fairfield Range. Also on this level a luxury shower room. Location Ecclerigg Cottage offers a wonderful way to enjoy Ambleside village life, staying right its heart yet slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the busier streets. Ambleside is an attractive Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake. Renowned for its traditional Lakeland cottages and interesting historic buildings such as The Bridge House, the village has grown tastefully to become one of the region's most sophisticated destinations. As you wander the pretty streets, explore contemporary shops, clothing boutiques, tasty eateries and much more. All set against the spectacular backdrop of Lake Windermere's shores and the Lakeland Fells towering above. If you're a walker, you'll be inspired as soon as you arrive and spoilt for the choice of expert outdoor stores - the perfect places to pick up route advice!Stroll just outside Ambleside village centre and you'll find Lake Windermere cruises departing from the pier at Waterhead. The famous 'steamers' take regular trips the full length of the lake - hop on and hop off at bustling Bowness or peaceful Lakeside (the lake's southern tip). The perfect way to explore or even begin a days walking without having to drive. Numerous excellent country pubs surround Ambleside, and you'll be tempted to venture out of the village to such acclaimed pub restaurants as the Drunken Duck at Outgate. But for evening entertainment, you'll certainly be spoilt for choice within walking distance of your door in Ambleside village centre. As well as a wide range of restaurants, pubs and bars, Ambleside even has two interesting cinema venues - the 5 screen Zeffirellis mainstream cinema, and Fellinis Studio Cinema and Vegetarian Restaurant. Touring by car is scenic in every direction from your holiday cottage in Ambleside. Follow the A591 north past tranquil Rydal Water to historic Grasmere, and visit such attractions as the former home of William Wordsworth at Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum. The A591 also leads easily south to Troutbeck Bridge, Windermere and on to Bowness. Ambleside is a fantastic base whether you wish to hike in the fells, tour the Lake District's scenic areas or simply explore the charms of the local area. Enjoy!

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
