What a find Blue Hill is!

Homely accommodation for 4 adults, two private parking spaces, charging point for electric vehicles AND you can bring your four-legged friend along, two if you have them – what’s not to like about Blue Hill?

In a slightly elevated position, just a 5-minute walk from the popular village of Ambleside and with two other cottages, Fisherbeck and High Fisherbeck in this terrace also available, there are heaps of attractions to explore in and around the village. The property is available for weekly or longer holiday lets throughout the year and is also available on a short break basis. However, a week is never going to be long enough to enjoy all the activities in the area. Windermere Lake is a short walk away and there are many short strolls or for the more energetic, walks on the nearby fells. For garden lovers, Hayes Garden World is just down the road or on the way back to Windermere there is the Lakeland Horticultural Society gardens at Holehird which will reward a visit at any time of the year. For those gourmet lovers among you, be sure to include a visit to one of many excellent, fine dining restaurants, The Stamp House and The Samling both highly recommended.

As a welcome gift, there is a large jar of Uncle Joe’s mint balls. Take a handful with you, every time you go walking on the fells.

For your entertainment, WiFi, Sky TV and a Bluetooth Amplifier have been provided. There are also two USB charging points on an alarm clock in the main bedroom.


and the dog can come too!

The end of a short terrace of three, Blue Hill welcomes repeat visitors year after year. Its traditional style creates a relaxing environment, the comfortable living room with warming gas fireplace, a welcome retreat, particularly in the cooler months. The bright kitchen diner provides great facilities and plenty of storage if you prefer to regularly cater for yourselves during your stay.

Two good bedrooms on the first floor, one double and one kingsize, both with oversized duvets, share in the modern house bathroom with a deep bath, perfect for a long soak after a hard day walking the fells and separate shower cubicle.

The patio area to the front is just the spot to enjoy a pre-dinner drink before heading into Ambleside to sample one of the many great eateries available.

    Great cottage. Great location

  • Sally says:

    Hi, we loved staying in the cottage. A little hiccup re finding the front door but once in everything was great. It was a real advantage having the washing machine & a fab shower as we did get very wet one day and being able to take the dog was just perfect. Enough space for a family of 4, a great location, Close to shops and lots of fab places to eat. Also enjoyed all the amazing walks straight from the doorstep, loved by the whole family. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks.

  • Sean says:

    This is a lovely clean cottage in a great location. All you would want from a holiday cottage. Thanks for a lovely holiday.

  • Suzanne Bradley says:

    Lovely cottage, close to village centre, very clean and well equipped. Will definitely return and recommend.

  • Alex says:

    This is a beautiful cottage with everything you could need. Superb location close to the village centre but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet.

  • Melissa says:

    Fantastic location near the town centre. Nice and quiet road. Clean rooms. Lovely patio area for a late afternoon drink or read outside. Great base from which to explore the Lake District! Communication with the host was great.

  • Ben says:

    Great little cottage on the hill and only 500m to the centre of town. Quiet road with nice views. Clean, comfortable and spacious.

  • Saul Rowlands says:

    Fantastic location and stunning views. Everything you need in this property! We had a wonderful time and will be using Lakeland Retreats next time we visit. 🙂

  • Ellie says:

    The place was spotlessly clean and has every utensil you need to cook in the kitchen. The washing machine was a great help after muddy walks and the heating was very welcome! The house is in a brilliant location to get into and out of Ambleside

  • Tom says:

    Spacious and well equipped cottage with great parking and proximity to Ambleside town centre.

  • Craig says:

    Great house only 5 mins walk from town with its own parking and fully equipped for a great stay. Would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Oliver says:

    “Great base from which to explore the lakes. Clean house with comfy beds and everything you need. 5 mins walk from Ambleside.

  • Deb says:

    Lovely cottage. Super clean

  • Iain says:

    “Nice warm little cottage with all the amenities you would expect. Good location near to town centre with space for off road parking.

  • Emanuiel says:

    First, fantastic location if you want to explore the Lakes without a car (or with one, there is parking). Several minutes walk to local shops and Ambleside bus station. Restaurants just a few minutes by foot. Easy out of hours check-in process, clearly well worked out over many visits. Staff respond promptly and professionally. The cottage has great character and is tastefully decorated. Constant and prompt hot water on shower, sink and bath. Overall highly recommended.

  • Kitty says:

    Really well located and comfortable cottage. Exactly as advertised with all the amenities you’d expect. For people taking their dog along be aware that the house rules are no dogs upstairs and no dogs on furniture. Not an issue but worth being aware of. Would definitely recommend it.

  • Kate says:

    Small, comfortable and well-equipped house for our family of 4 in a fanstastic location; only 5 mins walk from Ambleside town centre yet very quiet with reserved off-road car parking spaces. We enjoyed cosy evenings next to the gas fire (although the house was warm enough during the day and we didn’t need to use the central heating) and the views of the fells from the back of the house. We will be back!

  • Bea says:

    The cottage is fantastic. Lovely position and a home from home. Immaculately clean too. Many thanks.

  • Ian says:

    Fabulous little cottage in an excellent location. Exactly as described and extremely comfortable, well-equipped and spotlessly clean.

  • Yvonne says:

    Great location, super clean house. Had a great time staying at Blue Hill Cottage.

  • Ayk says:

    Lovely place to stay! Very clean, warm and comfortable. House had everything one needs to have a great time in Lake District. Amazing location: on a very quiet street but 5 minutes walk away from the town center and places to eat and have a drink or two.

  • Simon says:

    Great place, excellent location – minutes away from the town. Cottage was really clean and had everything we needed, including things like spare towels. Would definitely recommend!!

  • Catriona says:

    Super cottage ideally located to explore Ambleside and beyond. Great having dedicated parking space. Everyone very friendly and helpful.
