Tucked away amongst some of the oldest and prettiest cottages in Ambleside, Cosy Cottage is a beautifully refurbished traditional Lakeland cottage which, as the name suggests, offers a cosy and homely retreat, in a convenient location.
The owners have lovingly created a well-planned and superbly presented cottage that is not just welcoming but reflects their attention to detail and desire to offer quality accommodation. Spread over three floors the cottage offers a comfortable, relaxing open plan living room and kitchen with slate topped breakfast bar; two great bedrooms, one with ensuite shower room, and family bathroom. Lovers of the Lake District will immediately spot the Lakeland theme throughout with slate work tops, superb local artwork, maps, walking guides and even a cuddly sheep or two!
Well situated just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Ambleside there is a great selection of restaurants and bars for every occasion, handy local shops and a plethora of walks from the door.
Accommodation in detail
A small, open porch welcomes you to Cosy Cottage and as soon as you open the front door the cottage welcomes you in with a lovely living room with comfortable sofa, welcoming armchairs arranged around a warming log burning stove making it just the place to read, watch TV or relax with friends. The well planned kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and finished with beautiful Lakeland Green Slate work tops and breakfast bar.
The bedrooms are found on the first and second floor with the master bedroom at the top of the stairs forming a master suite with super king size bed (can be made up as a twin - please specify when booking otherwise will be left as super king size) and quality ensuite shower room. On the middle floor the second bedroom has a king size bed and lovely window seat with views towards Loughrigg Fell. This bedroom is complemented with adjacent family bathroom with feature bath, shower cubicle, basin and WC.
The property is centrally located and though it does not have its own parking space the owners have thoughtfully provided a parking permit for the local council car parks.
Cosy Cottage is a short walk from the centre of Ambleside. Ambleside village is located on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. The surrounding scenery of Lakeland Fells is dramatic, and lends a stunning backdrop to the Lakeland stone buildings and attractive streets of the village. One of the Lake District's most sophisticated communities, Ambleside village is alive with interesting local businesses, shops and acclaimed Lake District restaurants and pubs.
Friends or families will love the freedom this location brings. Stroll to the shops or out for a coffee, then wander to Waterhead Pier to take a cruise on the Lake. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly from Waterhead Pier (just outside the village centre) and provide a scenic and car free route to Bowness and Lakeside. A fabulous way for all to explore.
For walking, Ambleside is renowned as a hub for enthusiasts. Numerous famous routes begin close by, and a wide range of strolls take in breath-taking scenery without having to travel too far. Ambleside is well stocked with outdoor shops and route information is widely available.
By night, you'll find plenty to entertain. Catch a film at one of the two cinemas, enjoy a drink on the shores of the lake or sample some of our region's finest dining which is all just a stroll from your doorstep!
The A591 winds its way from Ambleside to Grasmere and Keswick, branching off to Coniston and such delights as the Langdale Valley and Hawkshead.
