The property

Little Robin Cottage is a quaint terrace home in the lakeside town of Ambleside, Cumbria.

Close to many of the best attractions in the Lake District National Park, this home is perfect for a couple seeking a getaway.

On arrival, you will find on-street parking and a convenient electric car charging outlet.

Step into a well-equipped kitchen/diner which features Shaker-style cabinets and a variety of integrated equipment including a Smeg electric oven, built-in microwave, induction hob and boiling water tap.

Underfloor heating throughout the ground floor ensures you will be warm during those warmer months.

Continue to the charming sitting room where you can enjoy the views over the town down to the Lake, or those looking up to Wansfell.

Alternatively, sink into the sofa in front of the smart TV while operating the remote-controlled gas stove from the sofa.

The cottage has wi-fi throughout.

On the lower ground floor is a utility room with a Miele washing machine and a separate tumble dryer.

This area also has space and heating for wet clothing, other outdoor gear and storage of mountain bikes.

A full-sized Belfast sink with shower tap is ideal for washing muddy boots, and muddy paws!

Make your way upstairs to the delightful king-sized bedroom which has built-in storage for neatly storing your belongings, and a window where you can sit and enjoy the stunning views down the valley towards the lake.

Alternatively use the separate dressing room with a window seat, dressing table, mirror and hairdryer for getting ready in a peaceful and tranquil setting.

The superb shower room with a glass walk-in shower has a push-button shower start on the wall - to ensure the water is piping hot before you get wet!

During the warmer months, a passage on the side of the house leads to the patio area with garden furniture where you can spend afternoons dining alfresco.

Little Robin is perfectly situated for walking and reference guides are provided.

At the end of the road, the path leads up to Higher Sweden Bridge, with a circular route via Lower Sweden Bridge back to the village.

For those feeling more energetic, the route can go all the way to Fairfield via the Horseshoe, and back via Rydal.

Alternatively take a short stroll into the village for the start of walks to Wansfell Pike, or to Loughrigg Fell.

It is easily possible to spend a week without needing to get behind the wheel of your car, but if you do want to venture further then Scafell Pike, the Langdale Pikes, Coniston Old Man and Helvellyn are all within easy reach.

Ambleside is a real Lakeland town with a beautiful park, shops, excellent restaurants, cafes and bars.

Walk, or take a short drive to Waterhead and you can enjoy Lake Cruises, private boat hire and other water sports, or you can picnic at the ancient Ambleside Roman Fort.

The quaint village of Grasmere is only three miles away where you can visit the former home of the famed poet William Wordsworth, and the other classic Lakeland villages of Elterwater, Chapel Style and Rydal are within easy reach.

Choose Little Robin for your next romantic staycation.

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, including the popular eateries of Misto, Sheila's Cottage, and The Lily Bar. 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.
