High above Ambleside on the lower slopes of Wansfell, this spacious Lakeland cottage enjoys breathtaking views over the village to Loughrigg Fell and beyond. It’s a place to relax away from everyday life, or recover after a day on the fells, with light and airy rooms, sumptuous furnishings and pretty, traditional features.
There's plenty of room for family or even two couples, with a bathroom to each double bedroom. Outside you'll find a delightful raised patio, perfect for life al-fresco. By night, if you're not exploring pubs and restaurants in Ambleside, you'll relish a meal by the roaring woodburning stove.
Accommodation in detail
Parking for one car, right outside the door. An entrance hall leads to the superb living room with spectacular bay window and deep-cushioned furnishings around the open fire. The kitchen / dining room is a real reception room; the dining table stands by a woodburning stove set in a traditional Inglenook fireplace.

With superb fell views throughout the property and a convenient village location, this contemporary Ambleside holiday cottage invites you to enjoy the best of both worlds here at the heart of the Lakes. If you're here for the views, you needn't even step outside but you'll find that a wealth of famed Lake District walks begin in and around Ambleside.
If you're here to take it easy and soak up the Lake District pace of life, you couldn't be better placed. Admire the wild landscapes from the comfort of your holiday home and walk only a short distance to stroll through Ambleside's sophisticated shopping streets, where you'll find an array of acclaimed Lake District restaurants, several excellent local pubs, tempting delicatessens for stocking up the kitchen and even a cinema/pizzeria.
Ambleside sits off the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Close to the village centre at Waterhead Pier, Windermere Lake Cruises depart to Bowness and Lakeside offering a perfect opportunity to explore without a car. Bustling Bowness is one of the most popular Lake District holiday destinations, and is well worth a visit even if it's only to sample one of the best ice-creams in the National Park!
From Ambleside, you'll find scenic drives in every direction but the A591 is the main route through to Rydal Water, Grasmere and beyond.
