Fairy Tale cottage at the foot of The Horseshoe

Horseshoe Cottage is oozing in character and is everything you would expect from a Lakeland Cottage. Beautiful cottage garden at the foot of many Lakeland walks, and round the corner from Rydal Hall, the home of William Wordsworth, which is open to the public.

You can leave your car outside and walk the fells straight from the door. Head up towards The Fairfield Horseshoe, The coffin route or have a gentle walk to Rydal water and Caves. The Badger Bar is just around the corner serving food and local ale with a cosy log fire for getting a rest after exploring Rydal water and caves, and Nabb Scar and beyond to the Fairfield Horseshoe.


Sleeping four in comfort

The cottage is just a short walk from Ambleside having parking for one car, it is perfect for smaller families or couples.
Horseshoe Cottage has two bedrooms, a double, twin and a newly fitted bathroom. Downstairs is a large comfortable living area perfect for planning the next day’s walk.
