The property

This cosy traditional Lakeland cottage nestles at the end of a traditional terrace around a shared courtyard, set in a peaceful area but just 2 minutes walk from the bustling centre of Ambleside village. Step inside and you'll find a contemporary interior with all the comforts of a homely home. Perfect for couples or small families, Rydal View Cottage is a convenient base for exploring Ambleside, Lake Windermere and wonderful walks, with plenty of evening entertainment only a stroll away. You'll equally enjoy relaxing at home; sink into comfy sofas in the lounge, dine together in the neat dining kitchen, and gaze out over the rooftops to the fells beyond from the stylish bedrooms. A perfectly formed retreat for a Lake District holiday at any time of year. == Accommodation in detail There is one car parking permit provided for on street parking. Entrance leading to the bright but cosy lounge, leather furnishings and a contemporary electric fire for ease of use. Contemporary kitchen / dining room with a door to the rear courtyard, which also has access to a private bike store. Upstairs to the 2 bedrooms; 1 double bedroom and 1 single bedroom. Both are modern in style and decorated in neutral colours. House bathroom with shower over bath. 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 easily accessible via the scenic A591, which leads you to the village's scenic location on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Ambleside village has a cosmopolitan feel, a wealth of sophisticated shopping, a leisurely cafe culture and a wide range of acclaimed Lake District restaurants. Venues such as the Glass House restaurant in the village centre, or the famous Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant in a rural location nearby, are some of the finest dining experiences in the Lakes. Just outside the village at Waterhead Pier, you'll find a handful of lake shore restaurants as well as the Windermere Lake Cruises departure point. These elegant steamers provide your a stunning car-free route to Bowness and Lakeside - evening cruises are also available.

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.
