    “I was amazed at the quality of communication with the company.”

    When we had loads of snow in early march I was snowed in and unable to get up north, They changed the dates of my stay without any fuss or charge.....definitely come back to The Heart of the Lakes next time!!

    - Mr Smylie,

The property

Tucked away in the centre of Ambleside this stone-built detached cottage was once a small barn. With all the village amenities on your doorstep there is hardly any need to use the car - plenty of places to eat in the evenings, two good cinemas, bowling, tennis and lake cruises all easily to hand. Walkers and ramblers will enjoy the fine choice of fell and valley walks - Fairfield, Wansfell and Loughrigg to mention a few. Ambleside has good shops for all your day to day needs and makes a good centre for touring to all parts of the Lake District. Clover Cottage is well hidden behind other buildings and is reached down a number of steps to its own gateway. It has its own garden with lawn, trees and shrubs and a table and chairs where you can sit out, whilst being in the heart of the village. Accommodation: Enclosed glazed entrance porch to front door - room to keep your walking gear. The ground floor is all in one with a fitted kitchen with a full range of built-in appliances at one end, divided from the cosy sitting/dining area so that you can chat whilst preparing your meal. Beamed ceiling, TV with Freesat channels, DVD, living flame fire and free wi-fi. Stairs to the first floor where you will find the good sized double bedroom with newly fitted en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle, bath, wc and wash basin. Though small, the cottage is comfortable and cosy for holidays in any season, with gas central heating and mostly fitted carpets, with floor tiling in the kitchen and shower room. The cottage has a pleasant aspect with westerly glimpses of the fells and an adjoining garden. Outside: Garden area with lawn, trees, shrubs and garden furniture. Disc parking immediately outside to unload. Parking permit provided for use on all South Lakeland Council car parks - this is a useful add-on to your holiday and represents a real saving on the cost of your stay.

About the location


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: Payphone for incoming and emergency calls only. Note: Disc parking for unloading outside property. Parking permit provided for use in all SLDC car parks.
