There is private parking for one car directly outside the cottage and for those travelling to the Lakes without a car the cottage is only a short stroll from the bus stop with links direct to Windermere station.
There are many low and high level walks from the doorstep including the lower paths to Rydal and Grasmere and the higher peaks of Wansfell and the Fairfield Horseshoe ? so there is no need to use the car at all!  a couple of minutes' walk from the cottage are a number of excellent traditional Lakeland Inns and Ambleside centre has a wealth of shops, excellent restaurants, cafes and the award winning Zeffirellis Cinema & Restaurant for films, live music and good food.
