Conveniently placed right in the heart of bustling Ambleside, Derby Cottage offers great value accommodation for a larger family or gathering of close friends seeking a centrally based, comfortable retreat. Fantastic walks and cycle routes can be explored right from the door, no matter what your ability.

The Golden Rule is a must-go-to for all those walkers among you. The village is very pet friendly and you’re most welcome to bring your four-legged friend along to Derby Cottage.


Super Facilities Providing Great Value For Money For A Larger Group

Set out over three floors, Derby Cottage is well-appointed with a good ratio of large bedrooms to bathrooms ensuring a good degree of comfort for you and your party. The living room sits at the front of the house, set around an open fireplace. A recently re-modelled kitchen diner to the rear is fitted with all the modern-day conveniences you’ll need to cook up a hearty meal and a useful utility beyond here has ample space for walking gear and leads directly to the outside rear courtyard with seating and secure bike storage.

On the first floor sit three bedrooms, a twin, a single and a kingsize along with a small shower room on the half landing. A further, large kingsize room sits on the second floor alongside a very spacious en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath, hand basin and WC.

  • Marcus says:

    A very lovely little cottage, super clean and easy to check in. Very convenient location to access the town, Windermere as well as local walks

  • Sophie says:

    Michelle’s place was fantastic. Clean and tidy house with all the amenities we needed for a great stay. Fab location in central Ambleside. Although be warned it is tricky to find a spot to pull up outside to drop your belongings. All in all a fantastic stay.

  • Anna says:

    Our hosts were very responsive throughout. There was milk in the fridge and a bottle of Prosecco when we arrived, which was a nice touch. Derby Cottage itself was clean and the kitchen was well equipped.

  • Pete says:

    Pretty cottage in a very central location in Ambleside. Everything worked as it should and we enjoyed a lovely long weekend there taking part in a trail run. They even put the sun on for us!

  • Harry Bomer says:

    We had a wonderful one week stay in Derby cottage. The place is simple but well-equipped, cosy and clean. We felt very good value for money.
