About the property

Lakeland Cottage in Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria - Quiet, Picturesque yet Convenient Location in Ambleside

At its best in sunshine and in showers, winter or summer, Hillcrest Cottage offers a warm and comfortable Cumbrian welcome come rain or shine. The cosy sitting room has a traditional polished green slate floor which benefits from underfloor heating and when things get chilly there’s a fine old cast iron range with an open fire to warm your cockles. For cooks there’s a fully equipped kitchen complete with gas oven, cooker hood, dishwasher and fridge for preparing hearty post-walk dinners. There’s plenty of cupboard space, somewhere to store and dry wet-weather gear and a small breakfast table. Upstairs you’ll find a generously proportioned bathroom with a quality four piece white suite, corner shower and oval bath. And at the end of the day climb into bed in Hillcrest’s only bedroom. The double bedroom has plenty of built in oak wardrobes, a valted beamed ceiling with inset lighting and a lovely view over the gardens and cottages of Ambleside.

Fab, quaint cottage. Clean, comfortable and a great base for 4 days of walking.

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend the cottage for a comfortable break for 2 people. AMBLESIDE is a great place to visit with lots of pubs, cafes and walks.

Very complete on a great location.

  • 4 of 5

A nice cottage with a small sitting room, a very nice bathroom and a good bed. The kitchen is well-equipped, tv and wifi functionate without problems. It is one minute away from the wonderful center of Ambleside with all its shops, pubs and tearooms. There are also many hiking trails nearby. We rarely used our car after we arrived.

Fantastic cottage - hidden gem in Ambleside!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hillcrest Cottage over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May,

The cottage was everything we needed - perfect location, wonderful cottage with great character.

We were very impressed with how clean the cottage is, as this is a holiday cottage where dogs are allowed.

Very generous bedroom with a good size bathroom, great shower and huge bath!

The cottage is situated at the top of the town, hidden away so you don't hear any noise from the busy town, a short wander to the Golden Rule pub, which has a great garden to sit in the sunshine - as it's hidden away it's never too busy like some of the places in the town.

it was a short walk in to the town, which was great for us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I would definitely recommend Hillcrest Cottage and will definitely love to visit again,

What a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage. It is well equipped, cosy and warm. We would recommend it to anyone and would definitely return. A great central location for Ambleside. We didn't use the range as the place was so warm and toasty. Parking was not an issue. On the occasions we lost our space we parked around the corner which was no problem.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cottage is superb, the underfloor heating was lovely and I should imagine the range would be warm and cosy in the colder weather. All rooms were clean and we found a tea towel, dish cloth, small shampoo sachets and liquid hand soap all provided along with towels and linen. We will definitely return and it is just the kind of cottage we could happily live in. The kitchen was very well equipped and although I struggled with the cooker to start with, once I read the instructions it was actually quite easy and in fact cooks better than my own!! Although we could not let the dogs out in the garden off the lead as it is shared it did not make any difference really as it is so easy just to walk them around the block. A five minute walk takes you in to town with the shops, pubs and restaurants many of which are dog friendly. I would highly recommend this cottage and it is probably the best we have ever stayed in. Thank you so much Steve, can't wait to return.
