    “Very convenient situation in Ambleside with parking.”

    Whilst the cottage has almost everything you might need it is small and compact and therefore the double bedroom in particular is cramped for two people. Also no space for a washer or dishwasher which would be useful. We had a problem with the toilet lid which wouldn’t stay up whilst the toilet was being used, which will hopefully be put right. Although we generally enjoyed our stay, we wouldn’t return to Cringol Cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback. The toilet seat has since been repaired. Cringol Cottage is a character cottage in a convenient location with parking and is loved by the majority of our guests that stay. We have many customers return year on year so we are sorry to hear the cottage was not suitable for your stay. 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.
