A secluded and romantic retreat, with a village centre location that’s hard to beat… Ambleside is bustling and vibrant throughout the year and from Courtyard Cottage you never have far to go to reach your favourite restaurant or bar or see the latest films. Convenient yet secluded from the hustle and bustle, Courtyard Cottage is a real find.
In the winter the cottage is warm, cosy and inviting, while in summer the totally private courtyard and rockery, is a wonderful place to sit out for a coffee in the morning sun or share a drink at sunset. Sitting in this secluded, quiet sun trap, it is almost impossible to believe that the centre of Ambleside, and all it has to offer, is only a stone's throw away. Courtyard Cottage is an ideal place for a relaxing break in the lakes at any time of year. The delightful interior, blending country cottage-style charm with sophisticated modern comfort, has everything you could need for a wonderful holiday. Courtyard Cottage is very popular and enjoys many repeat bookings. The property has received a Gold Award from Visit England for "Exceptional quality of accommodation and Customer Service". Parking in the designated space requires reversing up a sloping driveway from the one way system and luggage will need to be carried a short distance to the property. A parking permit is also provided to give guests the choice of using a nearby car park instead.
