    “The cottage was exactly as described and ideally placed for all amenities.”

    The roof terrace garden was an added bonus. The roll top bath was described as excellent by my partner. We would not hesitate to book the property again.

The property

Just off the heart of Ambleside, we found this fabulous 4 star cottage retreat - ingeniously arranged right up to the stylish garden roof terrace, and presented with crisp, contemporary flair throughout. The living room is a heartwarming place to spend time, away from the rush or after a day on the fells. Sumptuous leather furnishings, shaggy rug and a beautiful white woodburning stove warm up the designer atmosphere of sleek wooden floors and natural paint shades. Dining space is cleverly sectioned off yet open to both the lounge and the superb fitted kitchen - perfect for entertaining. Two luxurious bedrooms have their own bathroom facilities, making Wainwright Cottage ideal for two couples. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car, in the courtyard outside the cottage. Enter via a stylish entrance porch with boot scraper, slate floor and space for walking clobber. Oak floors lead to the lounge, with leather furnishings and woodburning stove. The kitchen and dining area are open to the lounge, creating a great space for sociable evening meals. Upstairs to the first king-size bedroom, with views from fabulous iron bed and providing access to the relaxing garden roof terrace. Pampering bathroom with double-ended roll-top bath. Upstairs again to the 2nd king-size bedroom with en-suite bathroom and another fabulous view to wake up to. A small, enclosed outdoor seating area is accessed via the kitchen. Location Such a peaceful yet central location within Ambleside village makes Wainwright Cottage a winner for for all styles of holiday. The cottage is found in a quiet backwater, just a stone's throw from Ambleside's bustling centre and a short walk from the shores of Lake Windermere. Ambleside is a popular Lakeland village at the north end of Lake Windermere, surrounded by dramatic mountains and fells yet tastefully developed and cosmopolitan in its atmosphere. Traditional Lakeland cottages and historic buildings share Ambleside's attractive winding streets with sophisticated shops, excellent cafes, expert outdoor centres and acclaimed Lake District restaurants. By night, you'll find no end of opportunities to sample the local Lake District ale, treat yourselves to a romantic meal or even enjoy a film at one of Ambleside's two high quality cinema venues. Just outside the village at Waterhead Pier, Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly providing your car-free route to Bowness and Lakeside! These 'steamers' are a wonderful way to explore, admiring the scenery from the water. A wide range of boating activities are available on Lake Windermere. For exploring the wider Lake District, Ambleside is perfectly placed at the heart of the Lakes. You'll make easy journeys to the popular villages of Bowness, Windermere, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston, as well as being only short drive from scenic areas such as the Langdale Valley. Ambleside is a great base for outdoor enthusiasts!

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.
