    “The cottage was smaller than expected from the photos.”

    It was fine for 2 people but would have been very tight for 4 people. It would not have been suitable for 4 people to sit down and eat.

    It was fine for 2 people but would have been very tight for 4 people. It would not have been suitable for 4 people to sit down and eat. It was also inconvenient to have to pickup and drop off keys at the Windermere office. The location of the cottage was good and there were lovely views from the front.

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.
