  • Mrs Darbyshire

    “Lovely cottage, very comfortable.”

    Well equipped for a week’s self catering holiday.

    Well equipped for a week’s self catering holiday. Garden smaller than expected and it needs to be clearer that each property has its own garden - one of the other holiday makers was letting their dog use our garden as a toilet! We had to wash all crockery, cutlery and kitchenware before use as it was dirty. Not great when the property was supposed to be COVID secure!

The property

Discover Todd Crag House, part of a traditional gentleman’s residence located in Clappersgate at the foot of Loughrigg Fell – on the outskirts of Ambleside. A spacious property where traditional features have been carefully complemented with sumptuous modern furnishings. Todd Crag House is perfect for two couples or a family with two luxurious lounges.

Relax in front of the Victorian fireplace and take in the views from a pretty window seat in the first and enjoy a beautiful bay window and dining table in the second.

The kitchen has been tastefully styled with an oak finish and slate floor.

Upstairs there are two king size bedrooms with fitted wardrobes.

The master bedroom features an en-suite shower room and there is a second bathroom for added convenience.

Lazy mornings can be spent in the large and secluded gardens where breakfast can be enjoyed on a spacious patio table surrounded by local wildlife and fell views.

Private parking is available for two cars. Todd Crag House provides everything you need for a memorable self catered holiday, located in the hamlet of Clappersgate yet just a fifteen minute walk into the village of Ambleside where you’ll find vibrant cafes, delicious restaurants and traditional Lakeland pubs.

Clappersgate is a short walk to the northern shores of Lake Windermere, where you can catch a beautiful steam boat to Bowness, Wray Castle or Lakeside.

A gentle drive will find you in the stunning Langdale Valley where numerous famous Lakeland hikes begin.

Coniston and Elterwater are also within easy reach. The Lakeland hideaway of Todd Crag House is the perfect destination for a relaxing self-catering holiday.

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.
