The property

This stone built cottage really does have oodles of character, retaining original features such as exposed beams and flagged floors. It is one of the oldest cottages in Ambleside, thought to be built from stones from the old Roman fort. We are sure it will prove to be a most popular holiday destination at any time of the year. With Ambleside's bustling centre just a short stroll away you will be well placed to enjoy all the village facilities, a wide choice of restaurants, individual local shops, excellent cinemas, bowls, tennis and mini-golf. The choice of walks from the door will be more than enough to keep you busy all week whilst a ten minute stroll will bring you to picturesque Lake Windermere, with its boat hire and cruises - a delight in any season. Accommodation: Small patio garden with steps leading down to front entrance. Hallway with under stairs area for coats and boots. A sociable and welcoming open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen which is L-shaped (TV with freesat, DVD, and gas stove) with character features and back door to patio garden. Quality fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, and separate utility/drying room. Upstairs there are three comfortable cottage style bedrooms - one double, one twin and one single, all have interesting rooflines being built in the roof space. Family bathroom with feature stone wall and seating area, wc, basin and separate shower cubicle. The cottage is cosy in all weathers with under floor heating downstairs where there are slate and oak floors, fitted carpets upstairs and comfortable furnishings throughout. Outside: Parking for one large or 2 small cars in tandem adjacent to the property. The attractive rear courtyard patio offers a quiet retreat for eating out of doors on warmer days. Village centre 400 yards, lake half a mile.

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.
