This enchanting Lakeland cottage nestles in a row of similar pretty cottages at the head of Stockghyll Waterfalls entrance in a peaceful setting by open countryside yet only a few minutes’ walk into the heart of Ambleside itself. Once a bobbin mill workers cottage and we suspect by the name of Walter, we think you will agree this delightful cottage is perfect for a holiday in this popular setting at any time of the year.
With a private parking space and patio area, complete with furniture, this cottage boasts stunning views of the surrounding fells including Wansfell. Inside this traditional cosy cottage has the open plan living area on the ground floor complete with warming woodburner, ideal after a day on the mountains. Upstairs to the first floor double bedroom and bathroom and with the twin bedroom on the second floor.

Walter's Cottage nestles in a peaceful yet very handy spot just a few minutes stroll from the heart of the village of Ambleside. A holiday property in Ambleside provides an excellent starting point for a varied Lake District holiday. Easily accessible via the A591 on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a contemporary, characterful Lakeland village with a spectacular backdrop of Lake District fells. The location is ideal for walking in the Lake District, with many renowned routes beginning in and around the village. But Ambleside is also a popular choice for a relaxed, slow-paced holiday. Contemporary shops, leisurely lake cruises, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs make the village centre a delight at any time of year.
For evening entertainment, you'll find plenty to suit every taste. Try the renowned Glass House restaurant, in a superbly converted saw mill, for a special evening out. Or, take your pick from the two quirky cinemas; Zeffirellis cinema includes a great pizzeria and live jazz bar. Fellinis has an excellent vegetarian restaurant and shows films in a relaxed studio cinema environment. You'll also find a wide range of pubs, serving hearty food and real Lakeland ale - notable for its lake shore setting is the Wateredge Inn. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre. The elegant 'steamers' offer regular trips to Bowness and Lakeside - a great way to explore without driving. Evening cruises are also available, sometimes with buffet meals and live music. Windermere Golf Club is very close by and well worth a visit.
