About The Owner

We are a couple who retired to Ambleside in 2001 to live at the centre of the country’s most wonderful National Park and look after our 3 self catering Ambleside cottages. Besides looking after our guests and cottages we also enjoy walking with U3A, playing tennis, table tennis and Scottish dancing.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1980

Why The Owner chose Windermere & Central Lakes

Ambleside is the ideal centre for enjoying the beauty of the Lake District. It's right in the middle with roads going north, south, east and west. It's at the north end of Windermere so you can enjoy cruising from the ferry terminal. It has numerous walks for all abilities from your doorstep and if you want to enjoy the countryside in peace you don't have to walk far. It has ample restaurants, pubs and shops, cinemas with 5 screens, banks and a helpful tourist information office. There are many visitor attractions nearby in Grasmere, Bowness, Coniston, Hawkshead and Keswick which you can easily see in a day. There are National Trust properties at Town End, Troutbeck, also Wray Castle on the west bank of Windermere accessible by boat as well as by road.

What makes this cottage unique

On wet days try the pencil museum and optical illusions exhibition in Keswick, or just take the children to the play barn in Ambleside. There are country mansions at Muncaster Castle, Levens Hall, Sizergh Castle to explore. Writers like William Wordsworth Beatrix Potter and others have past dwellings at Grasmere, Far Sawrey and Brantwood (Coniston)

Quaint cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect walkers retreat, located in central Ambleside with parking, we did not have to move the car at all. We loved the cottage, it is old and curious, with everything that you need, excellent heating, lashings of hot water, comfortable beds and a great location. We will definitely be back.
