Overview

About the property

Townfoot Cottage in Elterwater, Nr. Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Dog Friendly, With Spectacular Mountain Walks Straight From The Door. Ten Minutes From Ambleside

Found in the corner of a small courtyard of traditional Lakeland cottages, dog friendly, Townfoot Cottage provides two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The holiday cottage entrance brings you into the contemporary, luxury-fitted kitchen and eating area. Alongside is the living area where you can relax and in colder weather, enjoy the warmth of a log-burning stove, while the large windows allow the Lakeland light to flood in. There is a useful laundry/cloakroom at the foot of the stairs and upstairs there are two stylish bedrooms with window seats, where you can enjoy the lovely views. The luxurious family bathroom is designed for long soaks after a hard day on the fells! Private parking is right outside the cottage.

There are beautiful views from the cottage, and many walks straight from the door. The characterful and cute local sheep (Herdwick breed) are free to roam the village, and can often be seen wandering up the road, or curled up asleep outside the cottage.

*A beautiful, fresh, new bathroom was installed for 2018!*

Townfoot cottage is a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is everything it describes itself as, cosy rooms that are tastefully decorated and well appointed. The drying room/washing facilities were great but unfortunately need as we enjoyed more than our fair share of rain, this didn't stop us enjoying our stay. The walks from the doorstep take some beating and having a lovely pub with beer garden at the end of the lane to return to after a hard days slog was always a welcome bonus. We loved the overall feel of this cottage, from the log fire to the sheep on the doorstep.

Elterwater is a picture perfect village and we will be back again soon.

Richie, Kate and Freya

This is without doubt one of the best properties we have stayed at during our many years of travelling. There was absolutely nothing negative to say about it . The area and the like local pubs are great and to come back to this property after a great day sight seeing and walking makes our weeks holiday and one we will remember for a long time

Thanks Helen and Sean Birmingham 17th - 24th March 2018

Excellent dog friendly cottage and location :)

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this cottage,

we've also stayed at the owners other cottage in Troutbeck.

We highly recommend both properties, they're both decorated to a high standard and are very comfortable, a welcome pack of logs for the fire is also a nice touch. Their location is excellent for both fell walking and country pubs. We will definitely return!

Excellent Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to postpone our planned visit for this time, but was really impressed by owner Alun’s response to our cancellation. He provided immediate repayment of our deposit , which also gives us a very good impression to his level of service and focus on customer satisfaction.

Townfoot Cottage is a super place!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Townfoot Cottage in Elterwater.

The Cottage was well furnished/equiped - - nice comfy beds, fluffy white bath towels, fully kitted out modern kitchen with everything you could want for your holiday stay - including a Bosch dishwasher, built in microwave oven and high tech. electric oven/hob etc.

The Utility Room/drying room was brilliant for all of our wet clothes and there was a washer/dryer which proved useful on a couple of occasions too. The LOCATION was brilliant and we'd recommend the food at the Britannia Pub just a hop skip and a jump away from the cottage - - - - and Chesters by the River - Skelwith Bridge.

Elterwater really is a such a pretty place to stay - we are looking forward to a return visit next year! :o)

Travel:

The nearest major Airport would be Blackpool or Manchester, roughly one to two hours away. Car hire would be recommended, although there is a pretty reasonable local bus service running through the Lake District.

Distances:

Ambleside is about four miles away, and for a supermarket, Windermere is roughly eight miles away.
