  • "This lovely cottage is tucked away behind the main street houses, so very central (the bus stop is only 2 minutes away) but with total privacy even in the garden."

    And it is very quiet in the night. Inside you find a cosy little sitting room with a good TV set providing Netflix. Because of the bushes outside and tiny windows on this side the room does not get much light but is nicely lit by proper lamps. The kitchen is well equipped. Upstairs is the bed room with a very comfortable bed. There is one large blanket for the double bed. The bathroom is very nice, with tub and shower. The water is steady and hot. Fresh towels were provided although not mentioned in the offer. The heater worked quickly with a timer and on demand. The communication with the owners was very nice, too. I enjoyed my stay very much. I would love to come again.

  • "After the initial mix up with where to pick up our keys up from due to several conflicting EMails then been given the wrong key and after several phone calls we eventually got in the cottage."

    The cottage is very quaint you access it from the road down some steep steps it’s location is great easy to walk to shops , pubs etc. We loved our enclosed garden excellent for our dog and safe. The cottage is just as described, it was clean and had a updated bathroom, ideal for our 3 day stay. Our only criticism is it’s cold as it doesn’t get much light but there is an electric fire and once the heating is on it warms up quickly. The furniture needs updating but we had a loverly welcome letter from the new owners explaining that they are in the process of updating in the coming weeks . I would definitely recommend Clover cottage and would visit again.

You'll be greeted with an enclosed porchway upon arrival, which serves as a convenient place to store your muddy boots and outerwear following a day of adventure.

You'll find an abundance of options for an afternoon drink at one of the town's many pubs, bars, or bistros, and if you'd rather skip cooking for the day, Ambleside's many eateries offer hearty meals and delicious breakfasts, perfect for fueling your day of explorations.

If you want to explore the picture-perfect hamlets, villages, lakes, and stunning landscape of the Lake District, Clover Cottages is the perfect starting point.

Immerse yourself in the great outdoors with a two-footed adventure, where adventurers may take on the challenges of Scafell Pike and Helvellyn, while nature lovers can enjoy a stroll around Holehird Gardens' beautifully planted gardens.

From Ambleside, a short stroll will bring you to the shores of Lake Windermere, where you can soak in some of the area's more enchanting views with a scenic stroll, or for something a little different, embark on a romantic steamer cruise from Waterhead Pier.

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.
