  • “We had a good stay at Briardale cottage, it just wasn't up to the standard of previous cottages we have stayed at.”

    It was a little tired and in need of some refurbishment, and the dead mouse on the glass above the stairs was the first thing we saw everytime we passed it. Personally we like a tv in the bedroom and there wasn't one, we understand that's not for everyone but makes a difference to us. It was useful to have a parking space right outside our cottage and to be so close to the town is perfect.

    It was a little tired and in need of some refurbishment, and the dead mouse on the glass above the stairs was the first thing we saw everytime we passed it. Personally we like a tv in the bedroom and there wasn't one, we understand that's not for everyone but makes a difference to us. It was useful to have a parking space right outside our cottage and to be so close to the town is perfect. The usual information pack that we read as soon as we get to any of your cottages was pretty much empty, not the usual standard we've come to expect from staying in one of your cottages. These are helpful, everything in one place to refer to if you have a query but you'll see what I mean when you look at this cottage's pack-empty. It was a comfortable stay but I'm a little disappointed that we've booked the same cottage for next April.

About the property

Briardale Cottage is a charming early 20th century property, one of six pleasant terrace houses situ-ated in a quiet cul-de-sac yet close to Ambleside’s many attractions.

A short stroll will take you to the centre of town for a romantic meal or a relaxing drink in the one of its many restaurants, bars and cafes.

Enjoy browsing the shops, catch the latest film at one of the two excellent cinemas or enjoy a river walk through lovely Rothay Park.

If you feel more adventurous take on one of the acclaimed Lakeland trails such as the walk to the top of Wansfell, Todd Crag or the more challenging Fairfield Horseshoe and all from your own door-step.

After a busy day, relax with your favourite drink, dine alfresco or take time out to admire the lovely views in the peaceful communal gardens, where the table and chairs on your patio await.

You will appreciate the peacefulness as there is no passing traffic.

Arriving at the cottage, unload the car from your own parking space which sits right by your front door.

Enter the enclosed porch entrance and store your outdoor wear.

Sit on the leather sofa and feel the cosy warmth of the log burner set into the deep fireplace.

Explore further to find your charming shaker style kitchen and dining area with cream units and wooden worktops.

The lovely shared rear garden can be reached along a small hallway through the back door.

This cottage also benefits from a convenient downstairs bathroom.

Climb the stairs to discover your good-sized bedroom with king-size bed and fitted wardrobes with plenty of storage, as well as a contemporary bathroom where you can enjoy a refreshing shower.

With so much adventure right on your doorstep, Briardale Cottage offers a wonderful base for your next family holiday to the Lake District.

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.
