The property

Only a gentle stroll from the centre of Ambleside village, this perfectly formed cottage retreat enjoys a tranquil riverside setting with patio and large private garden. Simple, elegant decor in muted shades adds to the relaxing atmosphere. The cosy living room is all you need after a day on the surrounding fells, with sumptuous leather furnishings, TV and DVD. Once you've sampled all the restaurants in walking distance (much more than a week's worth!), you'll find the kitchen and dining room comfortable for a special meal in - the table will accommodate 4 people. If you crave the peace and quiet of a rural property, but want Lake Windermere and Ambleside close by, this sought-after cottage is an ideal choice. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars, right outside the cottage. Enter from the parking area to an open plan living area with deep-cushioned furnishings, a neat kitchen and dining area with table for 4 people. Pretty double bedroom with dressing table and ample storage for clothes and belongings. Modern bathroom with shower over bath. Outside you'll find a large garden and small patio with seating. Location Ambleside village centre is packed with tasty eateries and has a wide range of contemporary shops - from useful supermarkets to quirky gift stores. As the village is a popular base for walking in the Lake District, you'll also find a large number of expert outdoor clothing stores. By night, there is plenty of entertainment in Ambleside. Enjoy a special meal out at one of several acclaimed Lake District restaurants, such as The Glass House. Sample some real Lakeland ale in one of the cosy traditional pubs, or catch a film at one of the two independent cinemas in Ambleside. Ambleside is a great base for exploring the wider Lake District. The A591 is the main Lake District route, and continues on from Ambleside to historic Grasmere, and towards must-see locations such as Hawkshead, the Langdale Valley and Coniston. Windermere Lake Cruises are a popular Lake District holiday attraction; walk from Ambleside village centre to Waterhead Pier and you can catch one of the famous steamers to Bowness or Lakeside. A great way to explore car-free.

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.
