Just off the heart of Ambleside, we found this fabulous 4 star cottage retreat – ingeniously arranged right up to the stylish garden roof terrace, and presented with crisp, contemporary flair throughout. The living room is a heartwarming place to spend time, away from the rush or after a day on the fells. Sumptuous leather furnishings, shaggy rug and a beautiful white woodburning stove warm up the designer atmosphere of sleek wooden floors and natural paint shades.
Dining space is cleverly sectioned off yet open to both the lounge and the superb fitted kitchen - perfect for entertaining. Two luxurious bedrooms have their own bathroom facilities, making Wainwright Cottage ideal for two couples.

Ambleside is a popular Lakeland village at the north end of Lake Windermere, surrounded by dramatic mountains and fells yet tastefully developed and cosmopolitan in its atmosphere. Traditional Lakeland cottages and historic buildings share Ambleside's attractive winding streets with sophisticated shops, excellent cafes, expert outdoor centres and acclaimed Lake District restaurants. By night, you'll find no end of opportunities to sample the local Lake District ale, treat yourselves to a romantic meal or even enjoy a film at one of Ambleside's two high quality cinema venues.
Just outside the village at Waterhead Pier, Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly providing your car-free route to Bowness and Lakeside! These 'steamers' are a wonderful way to explore, admiring the scenery from the water. A wide range of boating activities are available on Lake Windermere.
For exploring the wider Lake District, Ambleside is perfectly placed at the heart of the Lakes. You'll make easy journeys to the popular villages of Bowness, Windermere, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston, as well as being only short drive from scenic areas such as the Langdale Valley. Ambleside is a great base for outdoor enthusiasts!
