Lakeland Cottage With Magnificent Views, Available 16/23 October/.Weekend Nov/Ma

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Holiday Home within one minutes walk of the Centre of Ambleside, Lake District, England - Two Minutes Walk To The Centre Of Ambleside Which Still Has A Village Feel But With Many Facilities

A charming, warm and cosy cottage much loved by its owners. It is in an excellent location within 2 minutes walk of Ambleside and a 10 minute walk to Lake Windermere. The cottage is above the village so it offers stunning views from all rooms of the surrounding hills. Many walks start from the cottage without the need to use a car. Wifi - Unlimited BT internet throughout the cottage. The front door leads into a L shaped sitting room and dining area with a newly fitted kitchen off this. The sitting room has beams and oak flooring with a window seat giving wonderful views to the Langdales. There is a living flame electric stove, a TV and DVD player, a radio/CD player. On the first floor there is a shower room, a double bedroom and a single. A spiral staircase leads to a large twin room with an en-suite bathroom. There is a small walled sitting area with garden bench facing the right way for the sun. There is a shared courtyard garden behind the cottage where there is a utility room with washing machine/tumble dryer. Beautiful at Christmas/New Yearr

Crag View sleeps five very comfortably in 3 bedrooms but the space downstairs is slightly limited so for five full size adults it can feel a little cramped, although we have let it for 5 adults particulary for short breaks. We tend to let to 4 adults or a family with 3 children

About the Owner

We have owned Crag View for over 20 years, we love it and look after it as if it is our second home. Our children grew up loving the Lakes, we took them on walks and when they were little and they kept saying when will we be there. I am ashamed to say we bribed them with sweets. Now, in their thirties they want to come all the time and go on even longer walks but they now bribe us to go on long walks. They love going up there for a complete change of pace from their busy lives. They, and we, have been all over the world but the view from the cottage is still one of the best we have ever seen.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We return year after year, the views are fantastic and cottage is so near the village that we never use the car.



What a lovely cosy cottage with everything we needed. The views are unbelievable, Can't wait to come back.



Great cottage, had all the home comforts, wonderful views. Ambleside is a really good location for the rest of the Lakes, very central.



You really undersold the cottage, my children weren't that keen on coming now they think it's fantastic. We cannot believe the views. You were so helpful. We shall certainly return.

The prefect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I love this cottage. I wish I could explain how much. It was the perfect place to stay, a true home from home and after coming down from the fells each day it was great to have a cozy cottage to come back to. We visit Ambleside each month and have done for over 7 years and so pleased that we have found this cottage. It is close to everything which was great but to be honest once we were back each day we didn't want to leave. Lots of hot water, lovely fire, great wifi and comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything that you need including a freezer. What else could you ask for?

Crag View Ambleside

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Crag View eight times and we have enjoyed every stay the cottage is in a lovely location with beautiful views.

The cottage is always very clean and cosy.

It is only a five minute walk into Ambleside and lovely walks near by.

We would recommend this property to family and friends.

The owner always rings even though we have stayed eight times to check everything is okay .

Fun packed time, lots of lovely works at Grizedale forest, and Ambleside took the ferry there and back to Bowness and Windermere, were there are lots of shops and bars,cafes and things to do.

Good meals out at the Unicorn Ambleside and friendly banter at the Royal oak, excellent deli shop near the post office in ambleside.

Took a trip over the boarder to scotland.

Visited Kendall.

Then in the evening relaxed in the warm cosy comfort of crag view cottage, which has all the facilities of your own home,

well done again Crag View see you next year.

Great location, facilities. Will revisit!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed a long weekend in this cottage. Perfect for exploring the lakes and easy to walk to Ambleside's shops and restaurants. We didn't move the car all weekend! More than enough space for 2 humans and 1 canine. We liked the open plan downstairs area. Wifi was really handy. Directions and access arrangements were really clear.

This one is on a short list of places we would visit again.

Location

From the Owner

We love the Lakes, the change of pace, the lovely relaxed feel of Ambleside, the numerous good place to eat and the fact we can walk down to a cinema to see the latest films in 5 minutes! We bought the cottage because we had one further up the hill but we always said if this came up for sale we would try to buy it. We bought it without going inside because of the view. We have completely renovated it inside and continue to do so.
