We had a great long weekend at this cottage, great location, ideal for walking and lots of places to eat within 10 min walk. Cottage itself is cosy and quite quirky, with very comfortable beds. Would definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful weekend in this very picturesque cozy cottage. Top notch logburner and well equipped kitchen. The instructions were clear enough to follow, even at midnight in the dark! The one niggle was that we didn't realise the downstairs rooms were so different...More

About the neighbourhood
The Lake District National Park, Cumbria, covers a large area with many lakes and low and high fells

Winderemere, Bowness on Winderemere, Grizedale Forest, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston are all within a few miles of Ambleside, offering visitors varied and interesting galleries, museums and visitor attractions.

Kendal is the nearest larger town.

There are National Trust properties in the area, together with other houses and gardens to visit.

There are cycle routes on the fells as well as walks too numerous to mention here

Winderemere is home to Lakeland's main store and also to Booths splendid supermarket

Local butcher is excellent Mr Garside on North Street
Getting around
Walks from the cottage across to Skelwith Bridge, Loughrigg, Wansfell and many more
Access to high fells from the cottage: Red Screes, Dove Crag, Fairfield Round
Buses run from the village to Kendal, Hawkshead, Grasmere and Coniston.
Boats from Waterhead to Wray Castle, Brockhole Visitor Centre, and Bowness.
Car advised
How to get there
Trains run to Windermere from whence there is a bus or taxi service to Ambleside

Ambleside is at the head of Lake Windermere, the largest of those in The Lake District.

Leave M6 at Junction 36 and follow signs to Windermere and Ambleside. Full directions by email before your holiday. The 2 main parking spaces are fine for eg ML350 size vehicle. I have no problem in and out of the spaces. The car port is large, but is more suitable for a car with smaller turning circle, as lane is single track and bordered by a stone wall.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Watersports Nearby.
