  • “This cottage is VERY dated and requires a complete revamp.”

    Random pictures on the walls/ weird looking ornaments. All interior wood painted dark brown, mis matched wall colours, dingy drab curtains. A very old net curtain in the lounge. 3 lamps in the lounge, none matching, one broken, another with a bent lampshade. Dining chair seat pads very stained. Split bath panel, very bad decorating, damp showing through. No non slip mat for the shower. Carpet in the bathroom !!!! Disgusting! Bedside lamps didnt work. Very dated and yellow stained clock radio ...

Very dated and yellow stained clock radio. Very poor wi-fi. TV very small plus no freeview. Limited number of channels. Only one 2 seater settee and armchair. Certainly not big enough for 4 adults. Outdoor seating area is on the drive with very old chairs. Outside area needs a good clean, overgrown and full of weeds. Plus features...overall quite clean, great power shower. Very clean bedding and towels. Kitchen dated but well equipped. Plenty of storage.5 min walk into town. Private car parking space. Very quiet area.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
