    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.

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

Thank you Neil and Katherine for providing such a beautiful holiday cottage. It is in the perfect location for us. All the restaurants and shops were only a minute or two walk and it was a very quiet part of Ambleside because there wasn't any traffic outside the door. Gale Hill Cottage is a good size for two people and... more
