You’ll find me at the bottom of the garden…

2 Kiln Cottages has an enviable position in the tranquillity of its garden that hugs the River Brathay and is within walking distance of the village of Ambleside.

The hamlet of Clappersgate sits just a 10-minute walk from the traditional village centre but also has access to the bottom of Loughrigg from across the road. You can also walk down to Skelwith Bridge for tea and cake at Chesters, or make the most of 2 Kiln Cottages’ garden and enjoy the quietness of sitting next to the river waiting for the Heron to pass.


A charming cottage with two bedrooms

The cosy cottage is entered through a handy porch for walking boots and wet weather gear. The living room has a gas fire, a sumptuous sofa, and a window seat to spot the local wildlife. The brand-new kitchen boasts seating for all your guests with a handy utility room detached from the house.

The two bedrooms are bright and airy, and the house bathroom has a shower over the bath.

2 Kiln Cottages boasts a large shared lawn immaculately looked after with a private seating area at the bottom overlooking River Brathay. It has parking for two cars and is a great base to enjoy the local walks and hikes.

Respond to 2 Kiln Cottage

  • Vikki says:

    The cottage was as described and clean and comfortable. Clear instructions how to reach the cottage were provided and check in was easy. The rooms are spacious with plenty of amenities, nice to have the front porch to take muddy and wet clothes off before entering the main house. Within walking distance of Ambleside either scenic up and other or along the path. Plenty of places to eat locally and didn’t have to use the car.

    Thank you for the great house!
