  • “We had a lovely 2 week stay in this cottage.”

    It was very well equipped although a dryer might be handy and somewhere to hang wet coats! We had an opportunity to view the adjoining holiday cottage which is also listed as 4 star and (in our opinion) was far superior in terms of space, facilities, decor and price. Perhaps a fairer rating of Fellside would be 3/4 star, although we wouldn't hesitate to stay again in the future or recommend! The added bonus for us was the large, well maintained garden with lovely views, parking and countless ...

    It was very well equipped although a dryer might be handy and somewhere to hang wet coats! We had an opportunity to view the adjoining holiday cottage which is also listed as 4 star and (in our opinion) was far superior in terms of space, facilities, decor and price. Perhaps a fairer rating of Fellside would be 3/4 star, although we wouldn't hesitate to stay again in the future or recommend! The added bonus for us was the large, well maintained garden with lovely views, parking and countless walks straight from the front door without the need to use your car for the full week if you prefer, and the neighbours were really friendly! Take note though, the steep bank from the town back to the cottage isn't for the feint hearted or infirm, aptly named 'the struggle'!

    Thanks for your feedback and we’re really glad you enjoyed your stay. There is a heated plug in dryer with cover in the spare bedroom that is brilliant for drying wet coats and clothes. So sorry you didn’t find it. We find it really useful when we have been on wet walks! The Owner 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.

Travel cot available but no high chair.
