The Courtyard enjoys a wonderful, elevated position on the lower slopes of Loughrigg Fell, just two miles from Ambleside. One of seven properties forming a ground floor portion of this former Gentlemans’ residence sharing in wonderful wooded grounds and gardens, home to a variety of visiting wildlife throughout the year and with direct fell access.


The apartment provides a peaceful, secluded haven for two and your dog, offering wonderful walks right from the door – follow the fell path into Ambleside, here you’ll find a varied selection of amenities and attractions, and plenty of watering holes and eateries to quench your thirst and appetite, leaving you ready for the walk back to base.


A secluded, peaceful haven for two, and your dog

Tucked away to the back of the site, The Courtyard is blessed with its own allocated parking space and courtyard style garden set against a rocky outcrop of the fell where the sun hits from lunch time until the early hours of the evening.

A side entrance leads into the modern, enclosed porch style conservatory with comfy seating and hanging space for wet weather gear. Through to the main accommodation with hard floors throughout comprising a cosy snug with leather corner sofa, colour TV and DVD.

The dining area is set around an electric, stove effect fire and is just off the fitted kitchen where you’ll find an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave.

A neat bathroom has a shower, handbasin, WC, and heated towel rail. The bedroom has a large Kingsize bed with large window with original shutters. A second seating area is located on the first floor mezzanine, an area to sit, relax and enjoy your latest novel with a cuppa.

    We had a fabulous stay at The Courtyard – it was in the perfect location for exploring the lakes and only a short walk / drive into Ambleside for more of a buzz. Completely dog friendly and very easy to self cater due to a fully stocked kitchen! I would highly recommend staying and would definitely be keen to visit again!! Thank you 🙂

    “What a wonderful cottage! We had a full week whilst we explored the Lake District and the cottage offered us everything we needed whilst we were away. The kitchen was stocked with every utensil you will need and the bed was super comfy! Thanks for a great stay

  • Claire says:

    Lovely apartment in an excellent location in Ambleside. Super comfy bed and very quiet despite being next to other apartments. Decor is a bit outdated but we don’t mind one bit when you’re spending most of your time outdoors in the lakes! The hosts left us some kind little treats on arrival and communication was swift and helpful.
