    “First class Cottage in an ideal location.”

    - Mr Edwards,

The property

This much loved cottage lies in an enviable setting at Skelwith Bridge with its own large gardens down to the River Brathay and where you have your own river frontage and inclusive fishing rights. With wonderful walks to be enjoyed from the door you can explore the area to your heart's content either on foot or bike - the Cumbria Way passes about a hundred yards from the cottage, there are paths onto Loughrigg Fell and Silver How, or take the walk from the cottage past Skelwith Force up the river to Elterwater. The ever popular Chesters by the River is perfect for scrumptious lunches and afternoon teas and with the famous Drunken Duck Inn just a few minutes' drive away you can dine out in style or enjoy cosy bar meals at the Skelwith Bridge Hotel (300yds from the cottage). Accommodation: Park in the gated driveway and enter the cottage up a few steps at the back door into the boot room /utility where you can leave all your outdoor gear. Also separate drying room outside for wet gear. The newly fitted kitchen has all you need for a self-catering holiday. A wide opening leads straight through past the family sized dining table and on into the cosy sitting area to the front of the cottage (log burner, wide screen TV, Wi-fi, XBOX 360). The comfortable conservatory is just off the lounge - a perfect spot for quiet relaxation or that early evening glass of wine. Door to the rear patio. An inner hall of the lounge leads to the two bedrooms (a super king-zip link which can be a twin if ordered in advance, and a further king double room. A well-appointed family bathroom has bath with power shower over, basin and wc.) Crag Hill Cottage is cosy and warm in all seasons, comfortably furnished and sure to please. There are good views from most windows. Outside: The gardens a real feature with two separate places to eat out of doors, river access and plenty of mature trees and shrubs. Safe bike storage for bikes and canoes. Ample parking in the gated drive for about three cars. Walk to cafe and pub at Skelwith Bridge. Ambleside 2 miles.

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.
