The property

Picture book pretty Strawberry Cottage nestles in the tiny hamlet of Rydal mid-way between Ambleside and Grasmere in the very heart of the Lake District. The surrounding area is perfect for walking and rambling amid some of Lakeland's finest scenery - the footpaths to the Fairfield Horseshoe pass the door, as does the Rydal Round with its much loved 'coffin trail' along the fell side to Grasmere. An easy stroll will bring you to beautiful Rydal Water and beyond to Loughrigg Terrace and Loughrigg Fell. Wordsworth lived in Rydal until his death in 1850. His home and gardens are open to the public just a stone's throw away up the hill whilst there is a good pub with bar food just a short walk from this very traditional cottage. Accommodation: Strawberry Cottage is the middle house in a row of three cottages and the porch enters into a cosy beamed sitting/dining room (wood/coal burning stove, TV, DVD, video, CD/radio). The kitchen offers a good range of equipment and has back door to the rear yard. Stairs from the sitting room access the two attractive bedrooms - one double and one twin - both with washbasins. Modern bathroom has bath with power shower over, basin and wc. Strawberry Cottage has fitted carpets and comfortable furnishings, electric storage heaters in addition to the stove, and many personal touches to make you feel really at home. Outside: Charming front garden mostly of lawn with mature shrubs and a very pleasant outlook. Garden bench. The garden is enclosed but is open plan with the cottage next door. Small rear yard. Off road parking for one car in front of the cottage. Pub 300 yards, Ambleside centre approx 2 miles.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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: Fuel for stove is available to buy locally
