    “After the initial mix up with where to pick up our keys up from due to several conflicting EMails then been given the wrong key and after several phone calls we eventually got in the cottage.”

    The cottage is very quaint you access it from the road down some steep steps it’s location is great easy to walk to shops , pubs etc. We loved our enclosed garden excellent for our dog and safe. The cottage is just as described, it was clean and had a updated bathroom, ideal for our 3 day stay. Our only criticism is it’s cold as it doesn’t get much light but there is an electric fire and once the heating is on it warms up quickly. The furniture needs updating but we had a loverly welcome ...

Our only criticism is it’s cold as it doesn’t get much light but there is an electric fire and once the heating is on it warms up quickly. The furniture needs updating but we had a loverly welcome letter from the new owners explaining that they are in the process of updating in the coming weeks . I would definitely recommend Clover cottage and would visit again.

The property

Tucked away in the centre of the Cumbrian town of Ambleside rests this charming, stone-built barn conversion, Clover Cottage. With a wealth of local amenities and must-visit attractions leading from your doorstep, Clover Cottage makes an excellent base for a group of two to explore the delights of the Lake District National Park. Discover this lovely abode, well-hidden behind the historic buildings that line the streets of Ambleside, and descend the steps that lead you to the private gateway of your new home-from-home. An enclosed porchway greets you upon arrival, providing a handy space to remove any muddy walking gear away from the main living areas. Be charmed by the characterful interior of the open-plan living space, traditionally-decorated with exposed wooden beams and a rustic fire; a truly homely spot to cosy up at the end of an action-packed day with a blockbuster classic playing on the television. The fitted kitchen is equipped with a fantastic range of appliances, sure to entice any budding chef, and the intimate dining table for two offers an idyllic setting to enjoy romantic dinners over candlelight. A lawned garden sits at the rear of this lovely abode, adorned with vibrant shrubbery and trees and equipped with a table and two chairs, so you can sit out and enjoy the peaceful greenery whilst being right in the heart of Ambleside. When day draws to night, stairs leading to the first-floor will bring you to a well-presented double bedroom, benefiting from access to it's own en-suite bathroom, where guests are offered the choice between a blissful soak in the tub, or a quick rinse in the walk-in shower. Take advantage of your position within the heart of Ambleside, where you'll find a host of local amenities resting right on your doorstep; enjoy an afternoon tipple at one of the many pubs, bars and bistros, or take a break from doing the cooking and sit down to enjoy a homecooked meal or a hearty breakfast at one of the town's many eateries, ideal for fueling a day of excursions! Clover Cottage's central location makes it an ideal base to discover the charming towns, villages, lakes and beautiful scenery of the Lake District, whether it be by foot, car, or public transport. Lace up your walking boots and embark on a two-foot adventure through the varying terrains of the Lake District National Park, where avid adventurers can tackle the climb to the summits of Scafell Pike and Helvellyn, whilst those looking for a more leisurely experience may prefer a stroll through the landscaped grounds of Holehird Gardens. The glistening waters of Lake Windermere are easily accessible from Ambleside, where you can soak in the spectacular sights with a stroll along the shores, or make a day of it aboard an enchanting steamer cruise from Waterhead Pier. Add a touch of character to your next Lakeland retreat with a stay at Clover Cottage.

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.
