The property

Resting directly between Windermere and Ambleside on the private Merewood Lodge site in Ecclerigg is this fantastic stone-built cottage, Merewood Stables.

Perfect for a family retreat, explore this wonderful area of the Lake District amidst your loved ones, before returning for an evening of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Set in a reverse level layout, you enter the cottage onto the first floor entrance hall where you can leave your boots and coats before ambling on inside.

The bright and airy open-plan living area is where you will spend most of your time, whether it be lounging on the sumptuous leather settees or taking advantage of the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up some tasty grub.

Head downstairs to find three tastefully presented bedrooms, including a king-size double, twin and single, served by a refreshing family bathroom.

During the warmer months there is a possibility of dining alfresco style with a set of table and chairs, or enjoy family games from the large lawned area.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy exploring the immediate area with a number of walks from the property, including those via the bridle path next to the side leading towards Troutbeck for walks on Wansfell, and to Kirkstone, Ambleside, Holehire Gardens and Orrest Head, to mention just a few.

The cottage benefits from being just a few minutes’ walk to Brockhole on Windermere, the Lake District Visitor Centre.

Here the facilities include, a day time café, gardens, exhibitions, watersports, pony rides, gift shop, Treetop Trek zip wire and Treetop Nets, archery, boat hire, bike hire, mini golf, adventure playground and trails and orienteering.
