The property

Tucked away in a quiet hidden corner just off the centre of Ambleside, Hideaway Cottage is ideal for couples or families looking for the perfect combination of a peaceful holiday retreat within easy access of the village centre, which is just a two minute stroll away. With a wide choice of restaurants, bars, excellent cinemas, tennis, bowls and Lake Windermere just a short walk away - Ambleside is a year round destination offering a warm welcome in any season. An 18th Century cottage at the end of a short terrace of three, Hideaway Cottage has been refurbished to include all modern comforts for you to enjoy your holiday in any season, whilst still retaining its cosiness, character and charm. Perfectly placed for good walking from the door - the Fairfield Horseshoe, Loughrigg Fell, Wansfell and the Rydal Round - all without needing to use the car. Tastefully furnished throughout with quality coordinated furnishings and fabrics and a cosy open fire for the cooler evenings giving it a warm and homely feel. Accommodation: Slate steps leading down to the front south facing entrance, with Lakeland slate porch. Cosy sitting room with open fire (TV, DVD, CD player). Wide archway leading through to the fitted kitchen with dining area. Stairs to the first floor spacious and pretty double bedroom with feature window seat and well-proportioned modern fitted bathroom with shower over bath, basin and wc. Stairs to the top floor lead to a large twin bedroom with character beams (some limited headroom on entrance only) and views over Loughrigg Fell. Both bedrooms are exceptionally spacious and tastefully decorated. Outside: Peaceful and sunny south facing patio area with garden seating to the front of the house, ideal for relaxing in the sun and taking in the atmosphere. You can stop 20 yards away for unloading, and although parking is usually available in the lane a parking permit is also supplied for your free use of South Lakeland District car parks, the nearest being a short stroll (200 yards) - an added benefit to your holiday! Ambleside centre, shops etc two minutes walk.

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.
