    Perfect for our family. A super short stroll to the centre whilst also being in a really quiet street. Off road parking a massive plus. The property has lots of space at with a large kitchen diner and a big living room with wc at the back of it. 3 good size bedrooms too. Property also really clean. My only negative comments would be I was a little disappointed with the amount of things left out for us, ie we ran out of toliet roll, only small amounts of handwash left in the bathrooms and there was no detergent for the washing machine ( something we have always found in previous cottage). Also lakelovers stated a 10am check out but in the cottage was a sign saying check out 9am due to covid..which is hard going with three kids to be up, packed and out for 9am. That being said I would definitely stay at the cottage again as we really enjoyed our stay and I would absolutely recommend it, I'd just make sure to take extras of basic necessities.

The property

Gaze through the windows of this handsome Lakeland residence, where every room has a view. Within walking distance of Ambleside village centre and the shores of Lake Windermere, Uldale is slightly elevated in a peaceful location, commanding views to Loughrigg Fell and the famous Fairfield Horseshoe. The living and dining spaces of this property have a light and spacious feel; perfect for relaxed socialising and family gatherings. Contemporary style meets traditional Lakeland and the blend works perfectly! On warmer days, take your breakfast, lunch or dinner outside to the private garden and patio, knowing you needn't clamber into a hot and stuffy car in order to explore - attractions, world-class walking, vibrant village life and special evenings out begin on your doorstep! == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Entry through porch into the oak-floored entrance hall. The light and stylish lounge has superb views, an array of comfy furnishings and a TV/DVD. The kitchen / dining room also reveals wonderful dual aspect views. The kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and gas hob and tastefully finished with polished wood. Kitchen also gives access to furnished patio and rear garden graced with native plant varieties. Upstairs to the 3 spacious bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin) all enjoying glorious views, with tasteful decorations and deep, inviting beds. Two elegantly laid out bathrooms on this floor, 1 with shower room and 1 with shower over bath. Location A prime Ambleside location! Uldale's elevated position ensures that you'll really make the most of the stunning scenery that surrounds Ambleside village; a historic but sophisticated community nestled on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Ambleside has long been a popular destination for walkers, as well as families looking to explore with ease, thanks to its position at the heart of the Lakes. However, the lakeshore village itself is what many of our guests fall in love with year after year. Ambleside is steeped with history; pretty traditional Lakeland cottages and ancient buildings share the streets with local shops, sophisticated boutiques and an array of cafes and eateries. There's plenty to do and see, even in the evenings - Ambleside is home to several bars and acclaimed Lake District restaurants as well as plenty of options for family entertainment. There are even two high quality, independent cinema venues! An short and level walk away from Ambleside village centre, you'll find Waterhead Pier. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from here throughout the day, to Bowness and Lakeside; what a way to explore car-free! Touring and walking is scenic in every direction from Ambleside - it's a fantastic base for exploring. Head south to the Troutbeck Valley, Windermere and Bowness; west to Langdale, Hawkshead and Coniston or north to Thirlmere and Keswick. Perfect!

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.
