    “Amazing cottage”

    - Mrs Naylor, Dec 2019

This property is part of the Heart Of The Lakes collection.
We are a Local Lake District business offering a wide range of Lake District cottages, apartments and houses; some old, some modern and something for every taste, but ALL within the National Park and therefore in the heart of one of Britain's loveliest corners.

The property

Positioned just a stone’s throw from the heart of Ambleside, in the conversation area, is this 19th century farmhouse, Peggy Hill Cottage.

Quietly set on a little pedestrian byway with views to Wansfell this cottage has been lovingly restored to retain its character while being complemented by the needs of 21st century living, offering a superb accommodation for families or two couples looking to enjoy a getaway in this lovely part of the Lake District.

Enjoy your down time within the charming sitting room, where two plush sofas are situated around the TV and an alluring woodburning stove, perfect for those chilly winter evenings.

Move on through into the kitchen/diner, make use of the fine selection of appliances to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal before settling down at the dining table with your loved ones amidst.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the bedrooms upstairs, including a king-size double and twin, both of which benefit from en-suite facilities and enjoy lovely views to Wansfell.

Enjoy an evening outside at the patio area, taking a moment to admire the fine setting you find yourself in, perhaps best accompanied with a glass of wine or gin and tonic.

Ambleside centre boasts a range of excellent shops from boutiques to independent gift shops, as well as several pubs, restaurants and bars to enjoy.

There are endless walks and rambles in the surrounding area, with challenging high tops such as the Fairfield Horseshoe and less taxing moderate climbs with rewarding views can be reached from the door.

Heading out of town you could take a short stroll up the hill to visit Beatrix Potter’s House which provided inspiration for her most famous children’s stories, or take a trip to the World of Beatrix Potter to see magical tales come to life.

Take a short drive to Coniston to see the beauty that inspired the countryside of Arthur Ransome's 'Swallows and Amazons', as well as being the former home of poet and social critic John Ruskin.

Whatever your reason to visit this charming base, you will appreciate the convenient location with shops and restaurants on the doorstep surrounded by fells and lakes to explore.

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.
