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 modern family bathroom is designed for long soaks after a hard day on the fells! Private parking is right outside the cottage.

*A fresh new bathroom will be installed in January 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

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)

Cosy, well-appointed, well-equipped, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week here with our 10- and 12-year-olds, and Townsfoot cottage was perfect for what we needed - a base from which to explore one of our favourite corners of the Lakes. Circular walks from the front door with no need to drive somewhere and park was an additional bonus for us.

Everything was as you would want to for a week of walking, biking and boating - the weather was relatively kind to us, and every evening we came back to a cosy comfortable home-from-home to relax in.

The kitchen isn't overly well equipped for adventurous cheffing, but was perfectly adequate for our family meals :) and having a washing machine was invaluable.

Thank you
