    “Very well appointed apart from there isn't a dishwasher, despite being advertised as such and providing dishwasher tablets !”

    Otherwise lovely, albeit very small. Difficult to find as right at the back of the courtyard - ideally could do with some signage. Parking would be very tight with a large car also but all in all very nice

The property

We are sure couples will really enjoy Cobblestones. This charming little cottage/apartment lies just outside Ambleside in the delightful courtyard of character properties which were once the stables and grooms' cottages for The Croft and an ideal location from which to explore The Lake District. Walk from the door to Todd Crag and on to Loughrigg Fell , ramble 'Under Loughrigg' to Rydal and beyond to Grasmere, or take a leisurely stroll to the Lake for year round lake cruises amid glorious scenery. Nearby Ambleside and Waterhead offer plenty of choice when it comes to eating out and for local shopping in any season. Accommodation: The property is reached up a sloping cobbled access lane from the courtyard. Once inside, you will find plenty of hooks for outdoor gear, a handy bench and boot rack, before taking the four steps down into the main hallway. The sitting/dining room/kitchen has a tasteful ,relaxing feel ideal for unwinding with your own romantic dinner and a glass of wine or two, (wide screen TV with freeview and blu-ray player, wi-fi). The bedroom has a double sized bed and a newly fitted very smart bathroom with travertine tiles and wide wall mirror (bath with shower over, basin and wc). Cobblestones are comfortably furnished with fitted carpets to main living areas and with carefully chosen colours and personal touches. The property is kept cosy and warm with an efficient German electric system which gives you complete control over your personal comfort whilst seasonal lake views can be enjoyed from the sitting room.

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.

Note: There are four steps down into the main hallway
