Homely accommodation for 4 adults, two private parking spaces and a conservatory providing a stunning panorama over the village towards Loughrigg Fell and beyond to Coniston Old Man – so grab a cuppa, take a seat and admire the view!

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


A Year-Round Retreat with A Wealth of Great Facilities

High Fisherbeck is a modern take on a Lakeland cottage but has all the ingredients required to ensure a successful holiday retreat, including that all-important WiFi.

The recently created Conservatory with tables and chairs provides stunning views over the village and towards the fells beyond. Ground floor WC and washbasin.

The kitchen is at the rear and leads out onto the enclosed patio style garden. Both good sized bedrooms, one kingsize and one double, both with oversized duvets, have a pleasant outlook, the one to the front having a TV and DVD and wonderful views of the fells. The house bathroom is bright and modern with a deep bath and separate shower cubicle, washbasin and WC.

Respond to High Fisherbeck

  • Diane says:

    A wonderful cottage, very clean and well looked after by a friendly owner. With stunning views, great walks from the door and a short walk down the hill to the centre of Ambleside and all the lovely restaurants. A great place to stay.

  • John says:

    Great location – very comfortable with everything we needed as two couples staying for a week. Eating in was easy with a nice kitchen and plenty of cooking utensils etc. Eating out also easy – short walk to the centre of town. The balcony and peaceful view over the spectacular Lake District from the house is terrific and a great bonus! Overall we would thoroughly recommend!

  • Lesley says:

    Beautiful cottage in a great location just a 10 minute walk from the centre of Ambleside. Bright, clean and cosy with stunning views and great walks within easy reach. We stayed for our second time mid April when the weather was really good, we particularly enjoyed sitting on the balcony or in the conservatory at the end of the day with a nice glass of wine looking out over the hills…..just perfect! Already planning to visit again.

  • Joanna says:

    High Fisherbeck was a fabulously located cottage with beautiful views. The cottage was exceptionally clean with all the COVID-19 precautions in place, enabling us to relax and enjoy our holiday. Having off road parking and somewhere safe to store our bikes was also an added bonus. We have stayed in Ambleside a few times and parking has always been the downside. We will definitely be staying at High Fisherbeck when we’re back in the Lakes again

  • Rajesh says:

    Excellent and cozy stay at a place perfect for a family. And the amazing views from the conservatory are the icing on the cake. Felt like home from Day 1 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Would love to come back!”

  • Kathy says:

    “Lovely house, clean practical with great views. Lovely location, near town but still quiet and away from hubbub. Great walks from doorstep

  • Amna says:

    A really wonderful cottage in Ambleside. Great location (just note that it is on a hill) with all the amenities you need and sparklingly clean!! The views are also fantastic and there’s a route to Wansfell Pike just up the road from the cottage. My mum and I had a great time and felt well looked after. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Alfredo says:

    Great location , quiet with wonderful fell views but near to the center. The house was well equipped and comfortable , the only thing was the shower wasn’t the biggest I’ve seen. A good holiday base and our host was very helpful .

  • Graham says:

  • Jacqueline says:
