Beautiful cottage, little difficult to find but once you find it there is easy access, car parking is not far down the road and there was always a space for us. Bedroom is massive and has an extremely comfortable bed. Living room and dining area are perfect for chilling. Myself and partner spent many nights watching a film or playing cards.

Comfortable cottage right in the centre of Ambleside meant that we could enjoy the Lakes largely car free. Be prepared for the steps up. Could be a little noisy from the pub opposite on weekend nights.

Ideally located cottage to visit this area of Lake District whether you want to drive, walk or use the bus service. Breathtaking, which describes both the view and the steep slope and steps to this cottage. Not for the unfit!! Better equipped than most places we have stayed. Really comfortable.

You need to be a fairly decent driver to reverse off the main road and up the hill to the cottage steps - better using a carpark just a minute's walk away to unload your belongings. The cottage has brilliant views over the surrounding countryside from the patio area - a couple of sun loungers would make a brilliant addition.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
