    “This was our first time at this particular cottage and we would stay again without hesitation.”

    It is situated close to Hawkshead and the local pub, the Outgate Inn is just a 2 minute walk from the doorstep.

    It is situated close to Hawkshead and the local pub, the Outgate Inn is just a 2 minute walk from the doorstep. We had some amazing walks straight from the cottage and the views overlooking the fields are amazing. Lovely and quiet, plenty of parking and allowed us to fully relax. The log burning stove was a bonus but the central heating system already kept the cottage nice and warm. Kitchen, bathroom and other areas all well appointed. Would highly recommend.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
