Ambleside is one of the Lake District’s most vibrant towns, there is a great selection of shops, restaurants, outdoor activities, two cinemas and a fantastic park with mini golf and tennis courts. Popular with walkers and climbers, there are many walks from the town and plenty of visitor attractions nearby including cycle trails and water sports. From Lake Windermere (0.5 miles) take a ferry to Bowness, Brockhole or Lakeside Pier near Newby Bridge with rowing boat or motorboat hire.

Nestled at the rear of a large historic property, as you approach you are welcomed by the sound of running water from the hidden waterfall adjacent to the property. Accessed via steps at the rear of the main house, the property has a homely cottage feel spread across one floor and enjoys stunning views across the fells. Enter through the small but functional and well-equipped galley kitchen. This features a gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and microwave. From the small hallway, step into the bright and cheerful double bedroom that looks out over the terraced rear garden of the main house and enjoys views towards the fells. From the hallway, three steps take you up to the light and airy lounge with original beams. The picture window seat is the ideal spot to soak in views towards Latterbrow. Deer are regular visitors to the garden of the main house and there’s nothing better than watching them bask in the sunshine. The views from the other side of the room are just as appealing, with a stunning vista over the classic Lakeland walk, The Fairfield Horseshoe. With its comfy sofa, smart TV and dining table for four, this sun-filled room invites you to relax. Off the lounge you will find a cosy beamed south-facing double bedroom and a modern bathroom featuring a shower over the bath, and WC, perfect for relaxing after a day in the mountains or sightseeing.

Great cottage in a superb location, 4 minute walk into town. The cottage is very well equipped with good quality bedding and towels and very comfortable throughout. Lovely views from all the windows and is very private and quiet with one off-road parking space. Highly recommend and would most definitely stay here again.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
