Wendin Cottage

Ambleside, Ambleside/Troutbeck

Ref: 1162

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Changeover: Saturday


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.

Note: Sorry no room for a cot or high chair.

Property Reviews

A beautifully decorated and well equipped cottage in a central location.Mackenzie
We like this cottage so much we have stayed here 5 times. The property is very well maintained and looked after and year on year is updated and improved. This year a new oven and soft furnishings in the living roomhad been installed. We agree with several other visitors to Wendin that it is one of the best properties in Ambleside.Mrs Moore
