Penny Red Cottage

Ambleside, Ambleside/Troutbeck

Ref: 1175

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Changeover: Saturday


Penny Red Cottage takes its name from the little red letter box set in the end wall of the property. This charming cottage offers an excellent holiday base in any season.

Formerly a bobbin worker's cottage, this stone-built end terrace property dates from early Victorian times. It has now been transformed to make the most of modern day living with all the comforts of home. Built on three floors there are views from all the upstairs windows. With walks from the door to the surrounding fells and a short downhill stroll to the centre of Ambleside you will have everything you need for an enjoyable stay in the Lake District.

Accommodation: Entrance porch into ground floor open plan fully fitted living/dining/kitchen with multi-fuel stove (TV with basic Sky channels and free Wi-fi). On the first floor the large double bedroom has character deep set window and decorative original Victorian fireplace.  Bathroom (bath with shower over, basin and wc).

On the top floor you will find two further bedrooms - a double with views to Wansfell, and a single (maximum sleeps 4), together with a shower room (shower, basin and wc). Good views from both bedrooms on this floor.

Outside: Postage stamp front garden has just enough room to sit out of doors. Private parking for one car. Village centre 5 minutes walk downhill for pubs, restaurants, cinema, bowls, tennis and mini-golf. Walk to the lake (approximately 1 mile).
