    How to get there
    We send directions with your booking confirmation. Once in Ambleside, follow the one-way road round until Gaynor Sports is on your right and the Salutation Hotel and Spa is on your left. Barclays is in front of you.

    Proceed between Barclays and the Thai restaurant. At the back of Barclays, Stockghyll Lane meets Cheapside, and a pedestrian path leads uphill.

    10 yards along the path is Gale Hill Cottage, the first white cottage on your right.

    If using Satnav, use the postcode LA22 0AB as it takes you closer to the cottage than our actual postcode.

What a lovely cottage, perfect location in central Ambleside but still quiet. Perfect for walks from the door. Ambleside is great for meals out and good for exploring the rest of the lakes. The cottage is so well equipped, cosy and comfy we would love to return! more

Excellent accommodation, home from home, all mod cons and thoughtful extras in a traditional cottage. Great location, central and everything within 2 minutes walk yet remarkably quiet. Will be back in a different season for sure. Highly recommended. Be careful if you are over 6 feet tall as you forget to duck at some of the doorways after a few... more

The cottage is extremely well equipped with top spec items and thoughtful extras such as the DVDs, books, games & chocs on arrival!! The bed was very comfortable and the powerful shower was better than the one we... more
