  • "Ideally positioned cottage tucked away in a quiet spot yet still close to all that Ambleside has to offer."

    Plenty of excellent places to eat on your doorstep - don’t miss the excellent ‘Lucy’s’ for a relaxed and friendly place to eat. Parking was never a problem throughout our two week stay. Cottage is very comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. Loads of wonderful walks close at hand and if you’re planning on climbing Scafell Pike it’s just a 40 minute drive to Seathwaite in Borrowdale from which you can take the Corridor Route. We also went Canyoning down Church Beck near Coniston just a 20 minute drive away and would recommend Lake District Activities with Lakeland Ascents and would recommend them to go with.

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage well placed for Ambleside with shops and restaurants just 5 minutes walk away."

    We left our car parked on the street near the cottage - quite steep for those not used to Lakeland roads - and used local buses and ferries to join up with walks around Ambleside, Grasmere and Windemere. Would readily stay again.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay, thankyou."

    Issues with parking as car parks also very busy when could not park outside property. Also, recycling plastic caused us a problem. We were told that as our waste was 'commercial waste' we couldn't use the recycling facilities in Ambleside and that we shouldxeither leave the waste atcthe cottage for the owners to dispose of, or take it back to Liverpool with us! Chap relented in the end but told us we were breaking the law!

  • "The itinerary of the cottage could be more detailed, include the DVD player/ DVD's."

    It also said the fuel was included in the price, as the cottage has a log burner we took this to mean that logs would be provided, they were not. Apart from this we had a really lovely week in the cottage, we loved the location and really appreciated the Christmas decorations...Thank you.

  • "Lovely accommodation, with a very efficient heating system and all the facilities and equipment we needed."

    Not easy to park immediately outside the property as it was often blocked, probably by a local resident. However the provided permit allowing free parking in local South Lakes car parks was much appreciated, and used every night. Excellent location with a very short walk to the local pub and only a few minutes into Ambleside centre. Very good value as an out of season break (early December).

  • "Super cottage in a fabulous location."

    With all the convenience of being 2 minutes from the centre of Ambleside but out of the hustle and bustle of the centre and away from busy roads. The ideal location for us and you can park right outside the cottage. And there is loads of room to spread out inside the well equipped cottage too. It was ideal for us. We like a week in the Lakes in the winter. Just the two of us. The cottage is warm and cosy and there's space to bring work with us too on the huge dining table. We will be returning sooner rather than later.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
