Welcoming Retreat, A Stone’s Throw From The Centre of Ambleside
This pretty whitewashed Lakeland cottage enjoys a super handy location within a minute’s walk of all that this popular, outdoorsy village has to offer. Over 200 years old, the cottage is furnished and presented in a traditional style and ticks all the important boxes on your wish list including quality facilities, character features, a warming woodburning stove and pet friendly too. Barley Croft provides stylish, self-catering comfort for a couple or a small family and your dog. Although the cottage is perfectly suited to a short break for four adults wishing to sample the cuisine and nightlife of the village, four adults may find the kitchen and dining facilities at Barley Croft a little restricted if wanting to prepare evening meals, particularly for a longer stay.
A short stroll from the cottage brings you into Ambleside’s thriving centre, the local stone buildings and iconic church steeple set against a dramatic backdrop of the Lakeland fells, beckoning modern-day holidaymakers to explore the great outdoors as visitors have done for hundreds of years. Enjoy the thrill of reaching the summit of your first Wainwright or ticking off another one of the 214, take in the sights and sounds of the tumbling Stockghyll Falls or relax on the newest steamer, MV Swift and enjoy a cruise along England’s largest Lake to Bowness and Lakeside.
