Pudding Cottage is a family and dog friendly spacious 5 star property close to Ambleside and Windermere. The property is in a peaceful location at the head of a private lane as part of a group of traditional Lakeland buildings that formed the original coach house and stables for the 1st Earl of Lonsdale. With stunning scenery on you doorstep and a fabulously luxurious and contemporary finish, Pudding Cottage has received multiple awards both locally and nationally. The landscaped communal gardens attract a wide range of wildlife and many a guest has been delighted to spy our resident Jemima Puddle-ducks waiting for breakfast at the back door. Inclusive free leisure club membership is provided for 5 at nearby Choices Health Club at Troutbeck Bridge (approx 1 mile). With added luxury welcome items and toiletries provided, your stay will be relaxing and memorable from the moment you arrive.
