    “Excellent location and the cottage had everything we needed as a family of 4.”

    Bedrooms and bathrooms were a lovely size and plenty of storage. All issues previously mentioned had been sorted. We had a lovely, relaxing stay.

The property

This classy bolt hole is found on the fringes of Ambleside; alongside a park, close to the River Rothay yet still only a minute's stroll from the village centre. The shores of Lake Windermere are just a few minutes further. Relaxed sophistication is the theme of the interior; cosy up together in front of the woodburning stove, gaze out to distant fells through cute cottage windows and relish impeccable interior design with a finish fit for any glossy magazine. There's plenty of space for sociable meals in, and only a minute's stroll to plenty of evening entertainment. Each bedroom has a lavish bathroom facility, so even two couples can pamper themselves in their own space. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars. Enter to the contemporary open plan living space, with oak flooring throughout: Sitting area with sumptuous leather furnishings and woodburning stove, and an attractive dining area open to the fitted designer kitchen. Upstairs to the 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size bedroom with leather sleigh bed, sparkling en-suite shower room and glorious views. 2nd double bedroom, also with excellent views and served by a separate luxurious bathroom with designer standing bath built in the attic can be accessed via a traditional but steep staircase. The furnished rear garden is accessed via the kitchen; a perfect place for meals al-fresco. At the rear of the property there is a lockable store suitable for mountain bikes or canoes. Location A holiday cottage in Ambleside provides a perfect base for a Lake District holiday - you'll be surrounded by breathtaking scenery and close to Lake Windermere, but you'll also enjoy the convenience of a contemporary village community on your doorstep. Ambleside is located on the northern shores of Lake Windermere; it's easily accessible via the very scenic A591 road. The village is a popular base for walking in the Lake District, but it's also one of the most sophisticated villages in terms of shopping and evening entertainment. There are some excellent restaurants in Ambleside, two quirky cinema venues and a range of cosy traditional pubs where Lakeland ale is the favoured tipple! We also recommend exploring some of the excellent country pubs near Ambleside, such as the famous Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant - a must for special occasions and only a short drive or taxi ride away.

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.
