Pretty as a picture, Fisherbeck Cottage sits in a superb and convenient location, midway between the popular village of Ambleside and the shores of Windermere. Set well back off the road, this traditional, comfortable home from home enjoys lovely views across the adjacent sheep dotted fields to the fells beyond tempting walkers of all ages and abilities to pull on their boots and head to the hills.

a 5 minute, level walk into Ambleside town centre

A level, 5 minute stroll brings you into the centre of town where you’ll find every convenience you’ll need to properly self-cater during your stay and a wonderful variety of eateries should you decide to treat yourselves and have a night off kitchen duties. A short stroll in the other direction and you’re on the shores of England’s largest lake; from here you can take a sedate cruise around Windermere, hire a rowing boat, try your hand a paddleboarding or simply sit and marvel at the stunning views.



From the off-road, private parking area, enter Fisherbeck Cottage from the rear and step into a light, bright kitchen with slate floors, microwave, fridge freezer, gas hob and electric double oven. There is a shower room just off the kitchen with shower cubicle, hand basin and WC.

A few steps down and you are in the spacious lounge dining room, again with slate floors and comfortable furnishings arranged around a multi-fuel stove and TV with Freeview and DVD.

The stairs lead from the rear hallway to the first floor where you’ll find three good bedrooms; a single to the front, a single to the rear with fine fell views towards Fairfield Horseshoe and the main double bedroom, again to the front. The house bathroom has a shower over the bath, hand basin and WC.

Fisherbeck Cottage is blessed with two off-road parking spaces and a mature cottage garden to the side and front and a large patio area with furniture provided.

    This is a beautiful gem of a cottage with all the comforts of home in an idyllic perfect location with lake windermere and Ambleside on the doorstep. Loved it thank you we will be back!

    Beautiful cottage, perfect location and felt like home away from home. Couldn’t have wished for much more. We’ll return in the future.

    Lovely quiet cottage exceptionally well placed for Ambleside and walking from the door.

  • Natalie says:

    Lovely dog friendly cottage in a great location. Perfect for our family trip to the Lakes.

  • Val says:

    Lovely cottage, great quiet location and yet easy walk to the Lake and into Ambleside.

  • Rachel says:

    Lovely traditional cottage, well equipped. Tucked just off main road in Ambleside so convenient for shops and everything town has but not rural. Has two parking spaces which is a real plus for Ambleside

  • David says:

    What an excellent week we’ve just had at fisherbeck cottage. Very comfy and we felt right at home. Well equipped and close to everything, set back from the main road and very tranquil. Will definitely be coming back here next year, could ask for more and for a very reasonable price

  • Matthew says:

    We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage offers a great location close to all of Ambleside’s amenities whilst feeling quiet enough to be in your own space. Lovely to have footpath adjacent to take on the walk down to the Lake. Surprisingly good head height too (6ft3in) for a lakeland cottage.

  • Max says:

    Great cottage, great location, with parking, dog friendly. This place is only a 10 min walk from the town centre yet totally tranquil and quiet at night, very peaceful and great for star gazing, the milky way was clearly visible when we walked the dog at 9.30pm

  • Lynette says:

    The property is well located up a gentle hill between the town and the lake. We had our dog with us, so was good to be close to the lake where there is a park to let him have a good run. The kitchen is well stocked making cooking easy if you’re not taking advantage of the many lovely places to eat. We tried Lucy’s, Flying Fleece (had lovely live music Sunday evening), Ambleside Inn and the Copper Pot, all offering good meals. Communication was good with our queries being quickly responded to. Make sure to take tea/coffee/sugar as this is not available on arrival. Overall a good place to stay for a week.
