An Ideal, Village Centre Bolthole for Two

Delightfully tucked away behind the main thoroughfare of popular Ambleside, Studio Cottage is the perfect retreat for couples seeking the convenience of a thriving village centre without having to rely on your car and being able to explore the beautiful landscape right from the doorstep.

Ambleside is a great base for the adventure seeker; superb high and low level walks start close by allowing you the opportunity of ticking off a few more Wainwright’s during your stay. And if you’re happier with a more gentle pace, take a leisurely 10-minute stroll to the shores of Windermere, pick up one of the famous steamers, sit back and soak up the magnificent, ever-changing scenery.



One of a handful of exclusive apartments located at Studio House, this cosy and comfortable former artist’s workspace is bright, light and airy. Elevated above the street, up a driveway and reached up a flight of external stove stone steps, Studio Cottage is well presented; enter into the sitting room with laminate flooring and a centrally placed gas-fired iron stove around which the comfy sofas sit. An inner hallway leads to a neat fitted dining/kitchen with modern appliances. The pretty double bedroom sits to the front of the cottage and is presented in a country cottage style with a lovely outlook towards Loughrigg Fell and Nab Scar.  The contemporary, fully tiled bathroom offers a deep bath with electric shower over, basin and WC, perfect for a long soak after a day on the hills.

Outside, a small patio garden area has bench seating and there’s an additional shared patio area, again with seating. Enjoy extensive views over the village to the fells beyond. Parking can be at the bottom of the steps to unload – take care with low sided vehicles. A car parking permit is supplied for use on the nearby long-stay car parks and can be used on several other car parks within South lakes providing quite a saving on your holiday. Please note: Studio Cottage is accessed up some external, slate steps so may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties. The steps can be slippery in wet weather.

    Loved our stay here. It was a great location to explore the surrounding area. And when it rained, it was a lovely place to sit and read our books. The owners were fantastic from booked to checkout.

  • Dave says:

    amazing place, perfect location

  • Clare says:

    Great location in Ambleside’s quaint (but not old-fashioned) town centre, with lovely views from the outside patio area – a great spot to soak up the late afternoon sun. The cottage is cosy and modern with a well equipped kitchen, essential ingredients (including milk), walking maps, DVDs, and WiFi. There’s a music system too but we didn’t try it out. Due to the central location you don’t get parking right at the property (reversing the car up the hill to drop off luggage was not for the faint of heart, and you’ll need to be comfortable with a few short flights of steps), but the parking permit – valid for a nearby carpark and numerous other carparks in this part of the Lake District – was a really nice perk. This was my first visit to the Lake District and I thought it was absolutely beautiful. And this was a great little spot to come home to each day.

    This place has a lovely view and is in a great location. The kitchen is well kitted out for self-catering and the apartment has all the basics. Communication was great, check-in/out were seamless. A good base for exploring the area.

  • Kate says:

    Great location, Ambleside is the perfect mid-spot to explore the lakes. The bungalow is in a great central location, with a free parking permit – essential. There were a lovely little touches in the apartment which made our stay even more comfortable.
