    “Absolutely perfect holiday for us and our dog.”

    The proximity of the park was great and our dog soon was charging towards it on every possible occasion. Like others said the back is not fenced so dogs will have to be on lead outside. Despite being next to the school we really didn't hear much from the kids. The local chippy was dangerously close though... House was lovely and cosy - room enough for the 3 adults in our group - despite the snow. We didn't do much cooking but the kitchen was very well stocked, and the dishwasher a welcome ...

Despite being next to the school we really didn't hear much from the kids. The local chippy was dangerously close though... House was lovely and cosy - room enough for the 3 adults in our group - despite the snow. We didn't do much cooking but the kitchen was very well stocked, and the dishwasher a welcome bonus. Heart of the lakes had our parking permit ready and waiting and we never struggled for a space, although it wasn't school holidays. Would definitely stay again! Thank you guys.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback. The owners have worked hard in the last couple of months to replace/update everything in the cottage that had resulted in previously less favourable comments. We are so pleased that this has been achieved and you found everything to be perfect! We look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.

Note: Logs available for purchase locally.
Note: Sorry, no children under five years. Note: There is a basement flat that is occupied residentially.
Note: Sloping ceilings on the second floor, please mind your head.
Note: The small patio is not enclosed
