    “Nice cottage”

    Perfect location short walk to ambleside centre. 10/15 mins but lots of local taxis available. Close to ambleside pier for boat trips. It was a very good base for us as we wanted to see as much as the Lakes could offer us. It was easy enough to find with Google maps. Entrance is abit small but you quickly work it out. Cottage positives; Modern and very clean Small but cosy and fits two perfectly. Lots of facilities Fully fitted kitchen Comfortable large bed Tv with Netflix and freeview Bathroom is beautiful 5* hotel quality Detailed info book Guest book where owners have looked at suggestions from guests and made improvements. Under floor heating Lots of blankets and cushions for cosiness Black out blinds and curtains Clever storage in form of a shelf see pics Cottage negatives Parking space is hard to find and very very tight! Perhaps signs would help. Front door very stiff need 2 hands When using shower the water goes everywhere, so having a wiper with am extendable handle so you don't have to bend right over. Saucepans in really high awkward place Reasonable price to time of year. I would certainly return.

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.
