    “Treacle Cottage was perfect for our family of mixed ages.”

    Easy walk into Ambleside. It has plenty of space and is a very comfortable and well equipped cottage.

The property

Treacle Cottage is a great example of a 17th century Lakeland farmhouse. Sympathetically refurbished to provide luxurious self catering accommodation, with many enchanting original features. Exposed beams, fine views and a tiered garden. Treacle cottage is simply bursting with character and charm. It nestles in a cluster of older properties on the edge of Ambleside and midway between the village and the Lake. With two lovely sitting rooms, five bedrooms, three with ensuites, luxurious family bathroom and parking for up to 4 cars, Treacle Cottage offers great accommodation for friends and families. Ambleside village is quite the cosmopolitan place to be, stocked full of excellent restaurants, local shops and pubs to tempt you out in the evening. Walking is in abundance straight from your doorstep Description Treacle Cottage is set over three floors. Stone steps lead to the front door. On the ground floor there are essentially three reception rooms, ideal for that large social gathering or special family celebrations. The living room with old beams, comfortable furnishings and the wood burning fire is cosy and welcoming. The second sitting room also with oak beams and with ample seating, is ideal as a quiet room for relaxing and escaping with a book. Both have window seats with views to the fells and original wooden shutters, TV with Freeview and DVD. Go through to the cottage kitchen with slate floor, rangemaster hob and oven. Access from the kitchen is to the tiered gardens and patios. Two stone steps lead down into the dining room with a large family dining table and chairs. There is very useful boot room/utility room where the washing machine/tumble drier is located. Stairs lead to the first floor, where there are four bedrooms to choose from, two presented with king size beds and ensuite shower rooms, a twin bedroom and a pretty single bedroom which are complemented by a luxurious family bathroom with roll top bath, corner shower, basin and WC. The final bedroom suite, with double bed and ensuite bathroom, is located on the second floor and benefits from a lovely view to the fells. To the rear of the property is a private lawned garden with tiered patio with garden furniture to enjoy al-fresco living. Location Treacle Cottage nestles on the original old road into Ambleside. Tucked away just off the main road into Ambleside village. A holiday cottage in Ambleside provides an excellent starting point for a varied Lake District holiday. Easily accessible on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a contemporary, characterful Lakeland village with a spectacular backdrop of Lake District fells. The location is ideal for walking in the Lake District, with many renowned routes beginning in and around the village. But Ambleside is also a popular choice for a relaxed, slow-paced holiday. Contemporary shops, leisurely lake cruises, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs make the village centre a delight at any time of year. For evening entertainment, you'll find plenty to suit every taste. Try the popular Fulling Mill restaurant, in a superbly converted saw mill, for a special evening out. Or, take your pick from the two quirky cinemas; Zeffirellis cinema includes a great pizzeria and live jazz bar. Fellinis has an excellent vegetarian restaurant and shows films in a relaxed studio cinema environment. You'll also find a wide range of pubs, serving hearty food and real Lakeland ale - notable for its lake shore setting is the Wateredge Inn. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre. The elegant 'steamers' offer regular trips to Bowness and Lakeside - a great way to explore without driving. Evening cruises are also available, sometimes with buffet meals and live music.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
