Detached Lakeland cottage sleeping 2

Garden Cottage is a traditional stone-built Lakeland cottage sleeping two just one mile from Ambleside. It is cosy, charming, and has views from all angles. The cottage is the perfect base for two people to escape to a quiet retreat.

Ambleside is just one mile away with plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs with The Drunken Duck being uphill within a stone’s throw from the property serving fantastic local food and ales. You can walk directly across to Wray Castle through Pullwood Bay and along to Hawkshead for a hike up Latterbarrow.


Views from both gardens and pet friendly

With a couple of steps up to the property, you enter through a typical Lakeland porch and into the cosy living area with comfortable seating, a TV with DVD and an electric fire. The double bedroom has plenty of storage space for all your walking gear and the kitchen is fully equipt for nights in.

Respond to Garden Cottage

  • Robert says:

    Cottage was perfect for me, my wife and pet dog. Excellent fenced off area so he was safe to let out. There are walks right on your doorstep which were perfect for the dog. Ambleside is a short drive away with some excellent pubs. Couldn’t fault the cottage at all.

  • Hannah says:

    It was a perfect stay and everything we wanted

  • Philip says:

    Garden Cottage is the perfect location, very close to Ambleside with lovely walks right on the doorstep. The cottage itself is very well equipped with all modern conveniences, very clean and plenty big enough for the two of us and our two dogs. A fenced area at the rear made it very easy to let the dogs out in safety. Could not recommend highly enough.

  • Chantel says:
