The property

Set in an elevated area of Ambleside is Argyle Cottage.

From the outside you will be impressed from its traditional cottage exterior but step inside and indulge in its modern contemporary interior with character touches.

This is a wonderful property for families holidaying in the heart of the Lake District.

From the front of the property you can spot Loughrigg Fell in the distance, enter through the hall and into the dual aspect lounge with exposed beams, cosy woodburning stove, and dining area.

The bright well-equipped kitchen has a slate floor and the luxury of a dishwasher.

Upstairs there are three comfortable king-size bedrooms each with fabulous fell views.

Stroll down to the centre of Ambleside to sample the many indulgent cafes, local shops and a range of restaurants and bars.

Just outside the centre you’ll find yourself at Waterhead Pier from here you can hop on a Lake Cruise to nearby Windermere and Lakeside where there are plenty of attractions including The World of Beatrix Potter and The Lakes Aquarium.

Further afield The Langdales are only 2.5 miles from Ambleside, or head north to Grasmere and Keswick.

Perfectly located for discovering all that the Lakes has to offer; Argyle Cottage is an ideal spot for a break any time of the year.

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.
