Fashionable Décor Married With Quality Fittings To Ensure Your Every Comfort

From the front, step into the lovely lounge room with sumptuous seating arranged around a warming woodburning stove that takes centre stage. The new, Shaker-style dining kitchen sits beyond here with a large range cooker and quality, integrated appliances wrapped in cool quartz worktops, the cupboards well stocked with plenty of crockery and other items to ensure you have everything you need. Beyond here is a useful utility room with a washer, dryer and freezer and access to the enclosed rear courtyard where you’ll find a table and chairs to enjoy that first cuppa outside or an aperitif before heading out for dinner in the evening.

Stairs from the lounge lead to a single bedroom and Kingsize bedroom to the rear of the cottage sharing in a family bathroom with a beautiful roll-top bath, perfect for enjoying a post-walk soak with your chosen holiday novel or playlist. The master Super King bedroom is located at the front of the cottage and is blessed with an en-suite shower room – please ask at the time of booking if you would prefer twin beds.

Loughrigg Cottage has an enclosed courtyard garden to the rear with a table and chairs and although the property doesn’t have its own parking, a permit is provided for one vehicle which can be used on a number of car parks in the village and throughout the South Lakes which can prove quite a saving on the overall cost of your holiday.

  • Clay says:

    Was our 3rd stay here… already thinking about booking 4th stay. Very well located for all amenities

  • Carol says:

    Loughrigg is a lovely cottage which has been recently renovated so that it has all modern amenities. Great location in the centre of Ambleside.

  • Deborah says:

    A really lovely, cosy home in a central location. Despite being so central – the tour buses literally pass the front door – it was very quiet. Handy for all of the pubs, shops and cafes in Ambleside and a great base for lots of walks. We would definitely return and recommend Loughrigg.

  • Kelly says:

    Excellent stay couldn’t have asked for a nicer cottage. Very central with everything on your doorstep. Would definitely recommend and will return again.

  • Eve says:

    Fantastic stay

  • Gemma says:

    Brilliant property, perfect location and quick response to questions! Would stay at this cottage in the future!

  • Christine says:

    We had a fab stay at Loughrigg cottage – the bed was very comfy and the kitchen, living room and outdoor area were fantastic for relaxing after a long day walking and paddle-boarding (we did the latter nearby at Low Wood Bay Sports Centre which is about a 5min drive from the cottage). We will certainly come again – I only wished we could have stayed longer!

  • Bill Bicker says:

    A great place to stay. We’ve stayed there a few times before but the renovations are superb. Really comfortable, great facilities and it’s just a nice place to be. Ambleside is a good base for exploring the South Lakes and this cottage is well placed near to all the pubs, restaurants and shops. You can choose to leave the car in the car park opposite (parking permit provided that also provides free parking in many other South Lakeland car parks) and take advantage of the great walks that start/end in Ambleside. With the bus terminus across the road as well you can easily go further, into Grasmere, Langdale, Coniston, Kendal etc. door to door. We’ll be back.

  • George says:

    Excellent stay, great value for money, ideally situated in the town. Spotlessly clean, will certainly return.

  • Alistair says:

    Great house and great location for walking in and around Ambleside. Town centre and very close to all the local pubs and restaurants.

  • Tina says:

    Fabulous house in the perfect location, close to all our favourite pubs etc

  • Philip says:

    Fabulous cottage right in the centre of Ambleside. Recommended without hesitation

  • Barbara says:

    Excellent break away here, location, standard of accommodation perfect. Very high standards in every room, well thought out. Nothing we didn’t have. Parking either outside or on the car park opposite worked a treat. A very welcome break away in Ambleside. We will be back.

  • Amy says:

    Lovely cottage in a great location.

  • The Robinson's says:

    The cottage is everything you could ask for…… Perfect location, residence parking permit a real bonus, walking distance to all the shops/cafes/restaurants/bars, and photos don’t do it justice as the cottage is lovely in every way. Felt like a home from home, and the only negative was packing up after one week only wishing we had booked two! Would recommend to family and friends!

  • Gillian says:

    We had a lovely family weekend in this cosy cottage. In the heart of Ambleside it’s so close to all amenities but at the same time in a really quite location. Cottage is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Great that we could bring our dog too who had a lovely time walking the hills and swimming in the lake. Will definitely book again.

  • Sandra says:

    Great location, extremely well equipped nice size . The wine was a lovely touch along with tea coffee and milk . Would definitely recommend this lovely holiday cottage

  • Collette says:

    Luxurious Cottage in lovely, lively Ambleside ! This lovely cottage has been lovingly refurbished with a keen eye on luxury and design. All comforts are attended to and the whole feel of the place is like a big luxurious hug. It is much more spacious than the pictures show and extremely comfortable for a family of 4. All of Ambleside’s many attractions, pubs and cinemas are literally on the doorstep and the wonderful 599 Open top Bus is across the road – ready to ferry you off around nearly all of the lakes – a real treat and very inexpensive. A real gem of a place and a wonderful rental company – 100% recommend x
