Step inside and take pleasure in the outstanding features echoed throughout, a secluded country Lake District atmosphere blends effortlessly with 21st century life but the views remain exactly the same, walk out into the garden or admire from the true picture windows, here you can't help but fall in love with the setting. Leave aside the 'million dollar setting' for a moment and wander into this beautiful cottage, brimming with character and charm yet modern and light. What a great place to unwind and get away from it all, with direct access onto a maze of magnificent walks including the famous Cathedral Caves and Slater's Bridge.

A corridor leads to what we call the snug, a cosy room to cuddle up on the relaxing sofas by the fire or even gather round the piano! Then into the lounge, also displaying a warming woodburner, what a great room to spread out and relax in, admiring the views from the window seats. Upstairs to the three bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, one king size; one double and one super king size which can be separated into a twin room, so please say how you would like this arranging when booking. On this level is a bathroom with shower over a 'P' shaped bath. Please take care with young children in the garden. There is a low wall with a bank dropping off the other side.

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.
