    “This is my second stay at the Old Laundry.”

    Fantastic stay in the cottage, despite getting caught in a snow storm. The cottage itself is on one floor but is large with two decent sized double bedroom each with their own bathroom, I particularly liked the heated flooring in the bathrooms. Facilities Great and well equipped. Location is great as is only a short walk into Ambleside and all the pubs and cafes. Will certainly be back again, wouldn’t stay anywhere else now if visiting Ambleside.

There are two double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms and an open plan living area with kitchen, breakfast bar and sitting area with a gas fire.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.

Note: No infants allowed.
