A lovely, Lakeland stone semi detached cottage, Field Cottage enjoys a somewhat rural setting just a couple of miles from Ambleside in one direction and three miles from Hawkshead in the other. The award winning Drunken Duck Inn is a mere 1.5 miles from the cottage, a manageable jaunt to work up an appetite and thirst for their mouth-watering roasts and a pint of real ale.

Those cyclists, ramblers, and dog walkers among you will delight in the abundance of walking and cycling routes right from the door with the comfort of knowing you have a charming and quality holiday retreat to return to at the end of the day.

  • Jesica says:

    Charming cottage in lovely rural location

  • Geoff says:

    We had a fantastic break here- appreciated even more after the last few months of lockdown. It was a great place to unwind and we loved exploring the walks next to the cottage – we took the path through the field next to the house and reached an amazing viewpoint in a small village – We especially liked another walk turning right outside the cottage to Wray Castle and would love to come back to explore it more. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. There is a lovely garden with outside seating quite far from the gate and the road – ! I loved the master bedroom with the window seats and little offset room. Loved the sense of history you get staying in this traditional Lakeland cottage. Thank you.

  • Jono says:

    Michelle’s place was exceptionally clean and tidy throughout the whole house. We were really impressed by the hospitality that Michelle went to provide a welcome to the house, especially noting the basket of essentials such as biscuits, wine and chocolate cake (of which was outstanding). 5/5 Would recommend again.

  • Nigel says:

  • Carolyn says:

    Field cottage is well situated on the road between Ambleside and Hawkshead. It is a busy road and care has to be taken when driving into and out of the gates. It is in a beautiful setting and it is possible to walk in several directions from the cottage. We took one particularly enjoyable walk to Wray Castle and then returned by walking along the banks of Windermere. On arrival we found a basket of groceries waiting for us. These included lovely local produce and were much appreciated. The cottage was clean and very well equipped. It had a dishwasher, oven, microwave, washer/dryer, fridge (With small freezer section) and every cooking utensil we needed. The living room had attractive flagged stone floors (I was pleased to have my slippers with me). Seating was comfortable and there was a television. Upstairs was a double (Large) bedroom and a smaller room with 2 single beds. There was also a well equipped bathroom with hot water at all times. We had two dogs with us. I was a little anxious about the wooden stairs with gaps but our dogs managed these well. I also had to watch them closely outside to ensure they did not get onto the busy road. We all settled well and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks to our hosts.

    Well equipped and nicely positioned place to stay. Good to not be in town. Enjoyed being rural.

  • Katy says:

    We had a wonderful stay , the house was clean and well equipped to suit our needs . Second bedroom is small with no wardrobe just drawers however the master bedroom has plenty of space. Location is great with easy access to Ambleside and plenty of walks from your front door. Highly recommended

  • Elly says:

    Field Cottage was lovely! A really cosy and sweet base to call home for a long weekend. It is perfectly situated next to the bike/footpath that takes you directly to Wray Castle. This was also perfect as you can rent bikes and canoes/kayaks from the Low Wray Campsite! Perfect! And of course you have the Drunken Duck 2 miles up the road as well.

  • Shirley says:

    Thank you again for another fantastic week at Field Cottage we had the best time ever and the weather was much improved from last Easter
    The dogs were so tired every night ( and so were we)

  • Paul says:

    The cottage is excellently positioned within meters of the trail to Windemere or Ambleside and well worth a trek down to the waters edge early morning – if you are a runner its ideal for trails or a gentle undulating run along the path of Windemere. The cottage is well proportioned downstairs with all the facilities you would expect and all working with even a pint of mile delivered in the morning with a grocery list if you want it. Upstairs a massive main bedroom with a much smaller twin room which is functional. The heating in the place was superb and very quickly warmed up – we didnt need to use the log fire but Imagining the cold winter nights this could be a cosy little place

  • Rachel says:

    Beautiful Cottage in such a lovely quiet location. Perfect for walks as there is a walking route right opposite the front door that leads to Wray Castle and around Lake Windermere. Also very easy driving access to all the other places we wanted to visit (Langdale Pikes were a 15 minute drive away and well worth a trip for a good climb and fantastic views) Also communication was great and quick responses for every question!

  • Lydia says:

    We had a wonderful stay at the Field Cottage. The location is in the perfect location with beautiful works on the doorstep and Ambleside close by. The hosts were great and easy to contact and made for a stress free trip. I would definitely recommend and will definitely be using them again in the future! Thanks!

  • Brenda says:

    Great location with all the amenities. We loved the trails right out the cottage door, the garden seating and the sheep in the adjacent field.

  • David says:

    Fantastic cottage just outside Ambleside. Interior is spacious and well presented throughout and very dog friendly. Big open field ajoins the cottage – perfect for letting the dog have a good blast. Location is perfect to get back into Ambleside or ducking the other way to Coniston.

  • Dan says:

    Lovely location. Beautiful newly refurbished cottage. Great time with the kids. Lovely local walks.

  • Emma says:

    Field cottage is in a great location for exploring Ambleside and the surrounding area. The cottage has a pretty garden and the inside is cozy and well presented. There are nice extra touches such as OS maps to plan walks and a complimentary bottle of fizz. Key pick up is only 5 mins down the road in Ambleside and Michelle is friendly and helpful. There are some great places to eat nearby; our best recommendation is the Queen’s Head in Hawkshead which had lovely food and live music.

  • Virgina says:

    A lovely cottage with stunning views, very easy to find, great to get out exploring the local area and the fire was delightful. We stayed as a couple with a dog and plenty of walking locally and tasty dog friendly places.

  • Tasmin says:

    A lovely cottage close to Ambleside, well equipped and furnished and with the added bonus of a milkman!

  • Martin says:

    Lovely cottage, great location especially being so close to The Drunken Duck which is fantastic for Sunday roast

  • Helen says:

    You will not be disappointed with your stay in Field Cottage. The accommodation is equipped with every thing you could possibly need. We especially enjoyed the log burner which was used every evening after returning from a hard days walking. This gives the whole cottage a lovely cosy feel. There are lots of OS maps and recommended walks leaflets etc in the lounge. The cottage is very dog friendly with a garden out the back and fields all around the property. You can walk into Ambleside in 45 mins or Wray castle in the about the same time. We visited the Drunken Duck which is lovely for dinner or a drink and took a short drive to Grasmere to Tweedies Inn, which was excellent. We found the whole area very dog friendly which included restaurants, cafes and boat trips

  • Steve says:
