  • “The cottage was really tired and the outside space very untidy.”

    There was a smell in the living room which I'm not sure if it was damp or a doggy smell

The property

Elegance and light are the keywords for this most spacious traditional Lakeland stone built cottage. The recently completed stunning refurbishment has produced arguably one of the very best terraced cottages and only a minute from the town centre. Laid out over three floors it is large enough for families but cosy enough for a couple. The house is made for relaxation - especially the fabulous house-bathroom with roll-top slipper bath and drench shower. The rear orchard garden provides security for a pet or children and covered storage for bicycles - perfect for secluded dining or relaxing. Unrestricted parking may be possible outside the front of the property, but is not guaranteed. A visitor's parking permit is provided for the surrounding streets. There are wonderful views of Loughrigg and Wansfell from this property. This is a very popular property which persuades visitors to return.

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.
