Set in an elevated position in the heart of a thriving Lakeland town, this beautiful, detached cottage makes a romantic, cosy and relaxing couple’s retreat. With stunning views over Ambleside and towards Loughrigg, this idyllic getaway is less than a mile from the spectacular northern shores of Windermere. This traditional cottage has been imaginatively updated and retains many original features including exposed oak beams and stonework. Within easy reach of Ambleside’s many thriving restaurants, shops and pubs, this tranquil cottage is perfect for keen walkers and hikers discovering the breathtaking surrounding countryside.

This beautiful stone-built property is reached via a steep access drive and a long flight of external steeps passing under a stone archway and up to a level patio area with glorious views. The spacious lounge/diner features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, a traditional Lakeland stone wall, a wood burner-effect gas fire set on a slate hearth, and a picture window with superb views towards Loughrigg. The cottage also offers a stylish and fully equipped kitchen, a charming mezzanine with chaise longue, and a light, tastefully decorated king-size bedroom with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and far-reaching views. Heading outside, the shared patio area has outdoor furniture and spectacular views across the fells.

This is a fantastic base for discovering many of the region’s spellbinding lakes, with Windermere immediately to the south, Thirlmere (8 miles) and Ullswater (15 miles) to the north, and the smaller lakes of Rydal Water (2 miles) and Grasmere (3 miles) to the north-west. The cottage is ideally placed for climbers exploring the Eastern Fells, with nearby peaks including Red Screes, Fairfield Peak, Stoney Cove Pike and Helvellyn (all within 10 miles). Also within easy reach is the popular village of Coniston (8 miles) at the head of Coniston Water.

Excellent location in the centre of Ambleside. It is quiet as it is above and set back from the road. Reversing up the slope from the road is quite a challenge, I would not like to try it in icy conditions. Very comfortable and well equipped.

Ambleside is a good starting point to explore and the cottage is perfectly situated within it, with everything close at hand, yet still feels private, with pleasant outdoor seating. Inside, the cottage has been arranged and furnished very well, including a dishwasher (very welcome) and a washer/dryer - even more welcome when it rained on the first Read moreday! There was plenty of room for all our belongings and parking was easy using the permit supplied. A lovely, comfortable holiday base. Hide

We loved our stay at North Cottage. It is perfectly located in central Ambleside, but away from the main throng, so it feels peaceful. The cottage is delightful and the bed extremely comfortable. Would recommend it to anyone, although guests should note that there are steps to get to the property, so it would not suit those with limited mobility.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
