“Excellent location, great house, would definitely use again.”
There are many walks from the door and Ambleside is well served with both local and specialist shops and a fine choice of restaurants. Tennis, bowls and mini-golf are two hundred yards away and lake cruises are easily to hand on Lake Windermere.

Striking dining/kitchen in light coloured beech, shaker style with soft steel fittings. Separate utility room with back door to the rear patio. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The king-sized double to the front of the house is en-suite with shower, basin and wc. There is a twin room to the rear and a useful additional single room. Bathroom has bath with hand-held shower, basin and wc. Decor throughout is tasteful with pastel colours creating a light and airy feel and with pine in the bedrooms. Fitted carpets upstairs. Beechwood floors downstairs with rugs. The deep set windows with wide window sills are quite a feature, adding to the cottage feel. The cottage is fully insulated and very warm.

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.
