Self Catered Cottage, Sleeps 6, Ambleside - Peacock Cottage

spacious 3 bedroom property boasting a large dining kitchen for family nights

A walk whichever way you turn

Peacock Cottage sits just outside Ambleside in the small village hamlet of Outgate and can be well recognised from the beautifully well looked after topiary in the garden reflecting the cottage name.

Set just back from the road it is a stones throw from The Outgate Inn, a pet friendly pub serving home cooked food and real ales.

There is a walk whichever way you turn from the cottage up to Tarn Howes, down to Hawkshead or, back along the path to Ambleside where you will find a range of restaurants, bars and an award winning cinema Zefferellis.

The cottage is a spacious 3 bedroom property boasting a large dining kitchen for family nights in and a downstairs shower and sauna to enjoy on the cold nights after walking the hills.
