  • “Pavement cottage is perfectly situated right in the centre of Ambleside.”

    The beds and furniture are very comfortable and it has been equipped well. It was perfect for our stay and we would return. The only slight downside were the really steep stairs to the king-sized room on the second floor.

The property

This Victorian cottage enjoys a prime central Ambleside location in the heart of the village. It is set in a quiet side lane with amenities just around the corner. Guests can enjoy the local area without a need to use the car on a daily basis. There are great local walks for all ages and abilities, or you can take a stroll to the lake for cruises and boat hire. You can sample excellent places to eat and first-rate cinemas, plus welcoming pubs and a variety of outdoor activities all within walking distance. Pavement Cottage was once the 'bottling house' of Ambleside's Jackson Brewery. Now, it is transformed into a stylish holiday home spread over 3 floors. The open plan living space is homely, cosy, has an open fire, and is especially inviting after a day's walking on the glorious surrounding fells. Dining takes place in the open plan kitchen, but you'll also be tempted to stroll out and sample the wide range of eateries close by. Four people will easily spread out and relax here, with 3 bedrooms offering flexible sleeping arrangements and quality accommodation (1 King, 1 Double and 1 Single) Please note that the property has a strict maximum occupancy of 4, but you are welcome to use all three bedrooms.

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.

Please note that the property has a maximum occupancy of 4, but you are welcome to use all three bedrooms.
Wood for the fire can be purchased locally at nearby garage
