    “Spot on for convenience and ameneties...”
    We stayed here for one week, we found the facilities more than adequate for our needs - the lady who owns the cottage commented that people had critisised for not having WIFI and other modcons but it didn't bother us at all. The property is situated right in the centre of Ambelsdie, close to shops and buus links accross Lakeland, but access from a pirvate croft provides a degree of privacy. The flat was very comfortable indeed and we had no problems with any aspect of our stay.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; 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.
