The property

This traditional Lakeland slate, semi-detached cottage is located in the hamlet of Ecclerigg, rurally set close to both Windermere and Ambleside.

This lovely cottage, in a peaceful, idyllic spot is very convenient for exploring the Lake District National Park.

This delightful cottage offers breathtaking views and glimpses across Lake Windermere to the fells beyond and to Orrest Head and Wansfell Pike across the countryside to the side of the property.

This holiday home offers extremely spacious accommodation for two guests and has a cosy sitting room with period features, along with modern amenities such as WiFi and a Smart TV with Sky Q and Netflix.

On the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen which has quality fixtures and fittings and a breakfast bar.

You also have the choice of a ground floor Jacuzzi bath to soak and relax in after a day's walking or the en-suite wet room to the double bedroom on the first floor.

Outside your holiday home is a lovely garden where you can relax and have an alfresco meal or enjoy a glass of wine whilst observing the wildlife and birds.

Walking from the door is a must for wonderful walks found behind the property in the Troutbeck Valley and Wansfell to take in glorious views of Lake Windermere and distant fells.

Or jump in the car up to Kirkstone pass for grett views over to Ullswater.

Guests at this comfortable cottage will be charmed with its tranquil location and yet can sample the many excellent Michelin star restaurants and pubs available in nearby Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere.

This welcoming cottage offers a superb base for couples or two friends in one of the most picturesque parts of the Lake District.
