In a quiet location, only a short stroll from the centre of Ambleside, Gale House Cottage has been newly refurbished and offers an excellent quality holiday home from home from which to explore the Lake District at any time of the year.
The cottage dating from the 19th century nestles in a small courtyard with good private parking for two cars. There are walks from the door to the surrounding fells and also to the head of Lake Windermere where the lake cruises begin and where boats can be hired.
For those who wish to eat out you will find all of Ambleside's amenities within short walking distance, and there is a good selection of individual shops for all your daily needs. Ambleside has two good cinemas showing all the very latest films and there are tennis and bowls just off the village centre.
Accommodation: Front door entrance into small hallway with plenty of storage space for all your walking gear. Comfortable sitting/dining room with a cosy welcoming feel (TV with sky freeview, DVD, stereo with Aux input for phones, log burning stove and free wi-fi). Beautiful kitchen in a soft grey shaker style with granite worktops and small breakfast bar.
Stairs from the sitting room to the first floor where there are two bedrooms - a large master room with king-sized bed and smaller twin room. Refurbished bathroom with cast-iron bath, separate shower, basin and wc.
Contemporary furnishings, decor and flooring throughout add the finishing touches to this lovely Lake District Cottage.
Outside: Enclosed south facing patio garden to the front of the cottage - small but with enough room for eating out of doors when the weather allows. Garden table and chairs provided. Pleasant outlook with mature trees. Ample parking for two cars. Village centre a few hundred yards.
