The property

If you are looking for a picturesque cottage amid beautiful Lakeland scenery you will be delighted with Park Cottage, the origins of which are lost in time. It is thought to have once been a byre attached to the very old farm cottage next door and is known to have been converted into a dwelling in 1904. The cottage retains many original features and offers a cosy and relaxing rural retreat for a holiday in any season. The cottage is reached down a winding track away from the road. There is no passing traffic and the Cumbria Way footpath passes the door. There are excellent walks to be enjoyed from the property to Coniston or EIterwater and the river bank walks beyond (with a pub at either end!). Great Langdale beckons the serious fell walkers onto the high peaks and famous ridge walks - Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and the Langdale Pikes. With a good pub and restaurant at Skelwith Bridge and the Chesters By The River tea room close-by you will be tempted to eat out without the need to use the car, whilst the cottage offers all the comforts of home in any season. Accommodation: Pretty porchway leads into the beamed and oak panelled dining-kitchen. The beautifully fitted hand-built kitchen in oak offers all modern facilities without detracting from the character of the cottage. Large rear glass porch makes excellent storage for outdoor gear. Good sized separate sitting room (TV with satellite booster, DVD, electric 'log burner' stove). Stairs from the kitchen lead to the first floor where there are two bedrooms - a double and a twin - both with washbasins and ample storage space. Family bathroom with bath, separate shower and basin. Separate wc. Furnishings throughout are in-keeping with the property and there are lovely views from many of the windows - particularly from upstairs. The cottage is decorated throughout with tasteful colours and fabrics. Fitted carpets. Electric heating and hot water. Outside: Small 'cottage garden' to the front and further garden area to the rear. Garden furniture. Useful rear outside store. Private parking - strictly limited to two cars. Walks from the door. Dog owners should note that neighbouring fields are often grazed by sheep or cattle. Pub and restaurant half mile. Shops etc. in Ambleside 3 miles or Chapel Stile 2 miles.

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.
