Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England
- This quaint cottage is almost hidden up a leafy lane. Thick walls testify that the cottage is very old. It is compact but well laid out. The accommodation comprises front door leading straight into the living room which has a dining table under the stairs. It is open plan to the kitchen which is well fitted with oak units. There is a traditional stone hearth with an open coal fire. There is also gas central heating.
- Steep stairs lead to front bedroom with double bed, back bedroom with twin beds, and a pleasant bathroom with walk-in shower but no bath (newly renovated in November2016). There is an enclosed grassed yard at the back - ideal for a summer barbecue (shared with other residents from Blue Hill). Outside is the old privvy - great for storing bikes and muddy boots. There is an off road parking space.

Ambleside is an ideal spot for exploring much of the south lakes with its convenient bus and rail links which are still remarkably plentiful even in winter. This cottage is conveniently 5 minutes walk from the main ambleside bus stop from which nearly everywhere is readily accessible, if it wasn't already within walking distance. Since the bathroom and boiler were revamped not long before our visit I'll make particular note of these: The newly refitted...

The location is great - access was by a moderately steep hill 5 minutes from the main bus stops in the town centre. The cottage is compact and a perfect size for two of us to stay (there...

This was a beautiful cosy and comfortable cottage throughtout. There was good literature to help with planning days out, whether it be walking, eating or drinking. The enclosed garden was beautiful and a little sun trap. All requirements for cooking were provided and the beds were extra comfy.
