Charming cottage enjoying a tranquil location with plenty to do nearby, in the popular Lakeland town of Ambleside and near the shores of Lake Windermere.

The four-bedroom, stone property is less than 0.5 miles from the centre of the vibrant Lakeland hub, with its shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Lovely clean cottage in a perfect location for exploring the lakes. There were 7 adults in our party and we were all comfortable in the cottage, plenty of room and seating even in the small garden.

This is a centrally located cottage in Ambleside, very well equipped, high end furnishings and spacious - large enough for our 7 adults and 4 dogs. The arrival package of wine, crackers etc was very welcome. Three bathrooms ensure there is never a queue for the bathroom. It is extremely well equipped and even though I had to cook Xmas dinner, thereRead more was no shortage of anything. The garden is small but lovely with lots of seating. Bedrooms on the road side can be a bit noisy for light sleepers. Hide

Had a wonderful stay at Low Fold Barn in June. Ideally situated to walk to Ambleside town or down to the lake. Recommend the dog friendly garden centre across the road for breakfast too. The house itself was lovely and cosy with all the mod cons and more. Plenty of tables to eat at, inside and out. Overall a great base to explore all the amazing siRead moreghts of the lakes. Hide

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.
