fabulous fisherbeck sits just 5 minutes above Ambleside

Homely accommodation for 4 adults, three 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 Fisherbeck?

In a slightly elevated position, just a 5-minute walk from the popular village of Ambleside and with two other cottages, Blue Hill 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.



Comfortably furnished, Fisherbeck is a real home from home with a relaxing ambience throughout. The lounge room is set out around the ornate gas fireplace, the owners have provided a great selection of walking books, games, and that all-important WiFi, Sky TV and a Bluetooth Amplifier.

The modern, fresh kitchen dining room has everything you’ll need for self-catering and there’s direct access from here to a fully enclosed patio style garden at the rear of the house. Two bedrooms on the first floor, one king-size and one double, both with oversized duvets, share in the modern-day bathroom with deep bath and a separate shower cubicle. Off-road, private parking is available for two cars and secure bike storage, upon request if required.

    4th visit to this very cosy cottage. A good size with plenty of space. Well equipped kitchen. Very spacious comfortable bedrooms with lots of wardrobes and drawers. 5 minute walk into Ambleside. Own private drive so parking is easy. Small gated back garden /patio area so great if you have a dog. This doesn’t look like a traditional lakeland cottage from the outside but don’t let this put you off. It’s got everything you need and more.

  • Richard says:

    Perfect location and a great place to stay for the week.

  • Robert says:

    Comfortable, well appointed terrace house in great location for Town centre and shops and restos. Highly recommend.

  • Doug says:

    A quiet location and handy for the centre of Ambleside and the ferry, if you are ok with a steep walk just before the property. If you like a good shower, you’ll be disappointed. Similar if you want to cook, one frying pan which is the worse for ware. A very comfortable lounge with Sky TV was really useful after a day’s walking!

  • Jane Hilton says:

    Just spent a week in Ambleside in the middle cottage. Lovely cottage, well equipped and great location for us and our Spaniel Harvey, first time we’ve stayed in these cottages but hopefully won’t be the last.

  • Jamie says:

    Great accommodation in a good location. No problems at all so thank you very much

  • Kalir says:

    A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location close a path to Wandsfell and only a short distance from the lovely town of Ambleside. Lovely views and very comfortable.

  • Adrian says:

    Just came home from here today 25-2-22.
    Was not sure what to expect, but very surprised on arrival. The cottage (middle one of three) was warm, lit and cosy warm on arrival which is a bonus in February. Everything we needed was to hand in the cottage. Although it was in the middle we heard nothing from the neighbors (also guests) who had young children. The cottage is close to the village but not too close. We both got hooked on the mints left for us, sorry if there are not many left. We will be coming back and not just for the mints, loved it!

  • Mark says:

    Charming property with off street parking. Great location – easy walking down to Ambleside village centre.

  • Lucy says:

    A lovely, well appointed and spotless cottage. Great communication from Michelle and we would happily stay again.

  • James says:

    An ideal location for exploring the Lake District, it’s a terraced house with two other rentals either side, and shared drive / outdoor area. Everything is clean and sofas are super comfy. We spent most of our time outside exploring. It’s a short walk into Ambleside, a lovely town with a real buzz. The house is set below Wansfell Pike a great place to view the sunsets and Lake Windermere.

  • Jasmine says:

    Incredible home and so perfect for us. We loved the well stocked kitchen (all the pots and kitchen utensils you need!) and so immaculately clean. The house is very thoughtfully furnished and such a treat to settle in for a few days. Location is perfect for exploring Lake District and the walking trail beginning from the end of the street leads to some incredible views.

  • Candy says:

    Lovely accommodation within walking distance of Ambleside and local amenities. Decent sized double bedrooms and perfect lounge and kitchen space for a few days to enjoy the Lake District. Thanks for a lovely stay.”

  • Julian says:

    A lovely home ideally situated between the town centre and the waters edge. Dedicated parking really useful – although the car didn’t move! We went everywhere on foot which was a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend

  • Lindsay says:

    This is a lovely property in a great location close to all amenities

  • James says:

    “This property was great. Very clean, a good amount of room and an excellent location. Being so near great hiking routes was fantastic, and when the weather wasn’t so great we were kept entertained with the boardgames and books available. I would definitely recommend this place. The host was very good at communicating too.”

  • Hannah says:

    Really lovely stat over new year. Just what we were after with the dogs. All very clear and helpful, left tea and coffee for us which is always much needed after a long drive! Beautiful bedroom and good location to walk into town. Thank you

  • Steve says:

    Lovely little house about 10 minutes walk from town centre. Everything was perfect.

  • Andrew says:

    A lovely place to stay and in a great location. Any questions we had were answered quickly and efficiently.

  • Brenda says:

    This cottage is absolutely super! Really homely & cosy. A five minute walk into Ambleside for really great restaurants & amenities. Great base for exploring the lakes. This is my second time here & I look forward to returning again next year!

  • Joan says:

    Great place to stay while visiting the Lake District. Convenient walk to local restaurants and shops. Clean and well stocked. Would definitely stay again!

  • Margaret says:

    You can’t go wrong selecting this wonderful house in a perfect location. Ambleside has a great deal to offer in terms of good restaurants, access to hiking, and other local attractions. We found the best bread bakery to be a few miles up the road at Chesters. A woman in Granny Smiths, the local health food store, sent us there. Enjoy your stay. Margaret, a walker and foodie

  • Lorraine says:

    Fantastic views , great location even though it’s on top of a hill , very well equipped kitchen , very clean . Loads of great restaurants in Ambleside .

  • Lee says:

    Spotless & homely, we loved our stay at Fisherbeck. Essentials such as cleaning products and linens all left out for us along with the special touch of the owners supporting a local charity through small change donations if you break any glasses! Appliances were all quality brands and easy to use. WiFi has great reception throughout. The location is great with a short walk into town. Even with the hill it’s manageable. Ambleside is full of gorgeous places to eat, but we’d recommend booking in busy season if you’re out for dinner! We’d recommend Misto for a stylish, but laid back family friendly Italian and the Copper Pot for a stunning breakfast. There’s so much to do with kids too in the area, we could have done with another few days to visit all the places we wanted to – we’ll definitely be back!”

  • Nicholas says:

    Fisherbeck is a wonderful place to stay when visiting the Lake District. It is a couple blocks from the hustle and bustle of Ambleside and provides sweeping views from the balcony of the surrounding area. Additionally, if you leave your windows open at night you can be woken up by bleating sheep and singing birds. My wife and I fell in love with the Lake District during this stay and staying in Fisherbeck helped facilitate that. Down to brass tacks, the place was extremely clean and well cared for. We appreciated all the amenities, including the washer/dryer combo. All the furniture is comfortable and clean. We would gladly stay again. A note for people who may have trouble getting around: Fisherbeck is on a hill and there are a number of stairs in the home. This shouldn’t be a surprise as it’s in the Lake District and all

  • Margherita says:

    Lovely Stay. Great location: quiet and at a walking distance from the town center and the lake. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed for our weekend. Great space for a weekend for two couples or a family.

  • Elre says:

    Such a lovely home. Would highly recommend this to everyone out there looking for a weekend in the Lakes

  • Loic says:

    We had a lovely stay in one of the cottages in Ambleside, slightly off the main road for more privacy and tranquility but within walking distance of all the town’s amenities. We liked the small front and back terraces as well as the good equipment in the kitchen. If we were to stay in Ambleside once again we would probably return to this place.

  • Amanda says:

    Arriving on Saturday night we found the keys thoughtfully arranged in the key box in arrival order. The cottage was perfect for the needs of a mother, a tween and Echo, our collie cross. It was clean and comfortable. A short walk up the hill took us to the path to the waterfalls. A good selection of dvds were perfect for rainy days.

  • Juliet says:

    A cosy clean cottage in a great location just a very short walk into Ambleside. There was everything we needed at the cottage and enjoyed our stay. Thank you

  • Ann says:

    We really enjoyed our 3 night break at Fisherbeck Cottage. It was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The views were lovely and it was just a 5 minute walk into Ambleside.
