  • "The cottage was cozy and comfortable."

    The location was great - short walk to Ambleside and more strenuous walks around the Fells. We enjoyed the fire and the kitchen was well equipped except for dishwasher tablets (only one supplied for 2 people and not enough cutlery to last more than 2 days), no paper towels and only 1½ toilet rolls provided for 2 people for a week. Most of the cottage was very clean but the broom pan was full of dog fur and dirt that had not been tipped out. The drainage in the shower was poor and the fridge was freezing some veggies. If these issues were remedied it would be an ideal cottage. We had a problem with the hot water failing but Sykes were swift to respond and Dave was around within an hour to fix the boiler.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at Bay Tree Cottage."

    It was clean, cosy and comfortable....just what we wanted. The cottage offered the best of both worlds being only a very short walk away from all the shops, restaurants and cafes etc in the town centre, yet still quite and peaceful with some beautiful hillside views.

  • "A lovely, comfortable cottage."

    Very close to the town which is only a few minutes walk. Well equipped kitchen. Very nice little gardens at front and back. Highly recommend!

  • "Overall the property was very comfietable and cosy."

    Plus in general nicely furnished, but there are elements in the cottage that are becoming worn and tired, and could just do with a sort out. Some of the items compromise overall cleanliness. The cottage is in a great location, handy for town and with parking which is a massive plus in that area. One or two issues with plumbing which need to be addressed, otherwise will prove costly to the owner long term happy to provide further information.on this if someone would like to contact me?

  • "The bathroom main light switch non-operational, the extraction unit appears not to work correctly."

    We have left a note in the property.

    Thank you for letting us know about the light which has now been replaced, the extractor fan is silent and was only installed 3 months ago.. Property Owner

  • "The owners of Bay Tree cottage are to be highly commended - it's a beautiful cottage."

    I myself have stayed in many Lakelovers properties over as many years, but I can honestly say Bay Tree cottage ticks all the boxes! My new Polish husband was extremely impressed! The attention to detail is very evident everywhere and the little personal touches are the icing on the cake. (....... we did notice one small thing that's asking to be asking to be changed - the inside kitchen door would work alot better if it opened into the sitting room flat against wall rather than the problem of always walking into it the way it's facing at the moment!

The property

This luxurious pretty double-fronted cottage is just a stroll away from the centre of Ambleside and is gently elevated with superb fell views.

With many traditional features and enhanced with designer furnishings it tastefully blends character and contemporary.

Parking right outside the cottage enter through the porch into the light, spacious lounge with oak floor and open fire, leather sofas and picture windows.

Well-equipped kitchen/dining room overlooks the garden, with French doors leading to furnished patio.

On the first floor, both bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with fine and far-reaching views.

Spacious and elegant shower room also on first floor.

Ambleside's friendly character, comfy cafes, fantastic restaurants and traditional pubs combine with a great location from which to explore the rest of the Lakes.

From Waterhead Pier in Ambleside, the Windermere Lake Cruisers take you the full length of the lake, with stops at Bowness and Lakeside.

The A591 connects Ambleside village with Grasmere and Keswick to the north, Windermere and Bowness to the south, and journeys west to the delights of Hawkshead and Coniston are just as easy.

Walks abound in the area, and Ambleside is a great place to start with excellent outdoor equipment shops offering advice and inspiration.

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

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 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.
