    “We love Hillside and have stayed there a lot.”

    It’s not the flashiest property but it is a brilliant location and we love the feel of the cottage. It has everything we need and space to spread out. We feel like we’ve come home when we go back there.

The property

Hillside Cottage is a lovely traditional Lakeland stone built property in a very characterful part of Ambleside just at the top of Peggy Hill and within a short stroll of all the village centre amenities. Nestling in an interesting conservation area, Hillside Cottage forms one side of an L-shaped row and faces down Smithy Brow giving fine views towards the distant hills of Loughrigg from all the front windows. Accommodation: Entrance through small covered porch into partly panelled hallway. The sitting room, on the right of the hall is comfortably furnished (TV, DVD and open fire). To the left of the hall is a newly fitted, well-equipped kitchen in oak with granite worktops and a dining area next to the window. Door from the kitchen gives access to the garage where the boiler is sited. There is also a separate utility room with wc and basin. The curved staircase leads to the first floor where there are four bedrooms - one double, one twin and two singles, all with views. Bathroom has bath with seperate shower & basin. Separate wc. Fitted carpets throughout. Furnishings throughout are in traditional style and there are some good antique pieces. Outside: Parking is on-street or in the garage, and there is a neat patio area behind the cottage reached up a few steps where you can sit outside (garden bench provided). Hillside offers comfortable accommodation in a good location and with the number of bedrooms is often of interest to families with older children who do not wish to share a room. Smaller parties will also enjoy the pleasing proportions of the downstairs reception rooms with their cosy atmosphere. Ambleside village 300 yards. Note: Owner does bring own dog to property.

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.
