    - Mrs Evans,

The property

Pretty, attractive and comfortable are the words that spring to mind in describing Wendin Cottage. Dating from the 18th century this cosy terraced property was formerly a 'tied' cottage in the grounds of Busk House. It now offers charming holiday accommodation for two looking for a cosy nest just a short stroll from the centre of Ambleside. With Lake Windermere less than ten minutes walk away you can enjoy lake cruises and boat hire or take a picnic to the park. Good cinema, pubs and restaurants abound as do the many walks in the surrounding area. Accommodation: There are two rooms on the ground floor - a neat sitting/dining room with oak flooring, log burning stove, Smart LED TV with free Netflix , Wi-fi broadband, radio and iPod dock. Fully fitted kitchen with back door to the small, enclosed, rear patio containing garden table and chairs. Outbuildings house the laundry equipment, a small freezer and a Peko drying cabinet - ideal for drying wet weather walking gear. Open stairs from the corner of the sitting room lead to a pleasant newly refurbished King Size Bedroom with a wall mounted LCD TV/DVD and a fully tiled luxury bathroom complete with spa bath, separate shower, basin and wc. The cottage retains its character features with beams and deep set windows, and is furnished in a comfortable, contemporary style with co-ordinating decor and soft furnishings. Gas central heating and hot water ensure a cosy stay in any season. Outside: You can park one smallish car at the front door. Garden table and chairs are provided for sitting out at the back of the cottage. Ambleside village centre facilities are about 300 yards away, lake half a mile.

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: Logs for stove are available locally
