Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
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.

elterwater cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great quality of accommodation with everything you need and in a good location. Unfortunately the weather was so poor we left early. This was nothing to do with the accommodation which was of very good quality. Minor issue: there was no sign on the cottage to tell us it was the right one. Had to go to the pub down the road to find out. Can I suggest a name plate.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful cottage in a fantastic and stunning location. We found the cottage very clean and well maintained, the decor was lovely with very modern facilities. It was so lovely to come back to at the end of a very busy day, Our family didn't want our stay to end. Alun Knott provided excellent customer service and always answered any queries very promptly prior to our stay. The cottage located in beautiful Elterwater, with the Britannia Pub just a walk up the road was a lovely, traditional country pub where they served beautiful food. Great location for walks, cycling etc. Would recommend a climb up 'Old Man Coniston', with fantastic views from the top. Also would recommend Low Wood Bay Watersports for any waters activities. We had a wonderful morning Kayaking etc and Angus and staff were so helpful, knowledgeable and re-assuring. Our family said this was one of our best holidays and can't wait to come back to the Lake District. I would certainly recommend staying at Townfoot Cottage and hope to return in the near future. Thanks again Alun and Staff.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The property has been very tastefully renovated with top notch appliances in the kitchen etc. We were a party of four adults and a Labrador and there was certainly no problem with space, which has been utilised to the maximum. All the utensils, pots and pans etc are more than adequate, however be prepared to bring/buy extra items like more dishwasher tablets, foil and kitchen roll if you plan to make meals at the cottage as we did. Also extra loo roll! That said this is a minor point, which does not detract from the fact that we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend. It is a shame there is no garden, but we knew that before we booked. Previous reviews have mentioned that their is no need to leave the area, which is something we can associate with. We bought a book from the local Co-Op, for walks from Elterwater, which is the best £3.50 you could spend!

Excellent base for a walking or touring holiday

  • 4 of 5

A small fronted terraced cottage on the edge of Elterwater village provided luxury, well proportioned, accommodation inside. The open plan lounge, diner and high spec kitchen was the perfect environment for us to cook, eat, chill and relax and provided lots of space for us to do our thing. The provision of a good quality 42" TV and DVD player along with the usual Freeview TV channels and high speed internet via Wifi for computer/tablet access kept us occupied in the evening.At the end of the day the king sized beds provided a really good nights sleep.

We found two pubs in the village (Brittania Inn ) and Wainwrights? at Chapel Stile to be right on our doorstep along with a Cafe in the village and a well stocked Co-op store within a quarter of a mile for provisions.

Around 3 miles to Ambleside with Windermere and Bowness beyond this was a perfect touring base for access to the towns, boats on the lake and more. We found plenty of walks from the cottage to Little Langdale, Ambleside and Coniston. Local walks to Skelwith Bridge now benefit from additional good quality paths by the riverside being provided by the local authorities and National Trust.All in all a fantastic holiday base!

Great cottage in a beautiful village.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was all Alun the owner had promised, a great dog friendly home from home., it had all mod cons in the kitchen and living room. Bedrooms and bathroom were spacious which was great as we also took our son and his girlfriend.

We ate out every evening at the Brittania pub which was a fantastic dog friendly eatery, just 150yards away.

The village in itself was a great base for walking and seeing the lakes.

Will def. be returning.

Location

Activity and Interests

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.
