Property code: OC-GL046

Lace up your walking boots and head off on foot through the magical Lake District National Park from this Cumbrian cottage near Loughrigg Tarn. Sleeping four guests, and welcoming four-legged friends, the three-bedroom hideaway sits in a beautiful garden, 2.5 miles from Ambleside. With an open fire and a wood burner, the semi-detached retreat is a perfect year-round choice and a superb option for anyone wishing to be close to Lake Windermere yet nestled in peaceful surroundings.

Step into the stone retreat to find a warm welcome and homely ambience. Head through to the lounge after your bracing walks to rest your weary feet beside a roaring open fire. Watch TV in here too and make your plans for the following day. Head through to the airy kitchen to prepare the Cumbrian treats you have sourced in Ambleside, then light the wood burner in the dining room, open a bottle of wine and call everyone through to eat in the dining room, which is two steps down. When eyelids begin to droop, climb the stairs up to the bedrooms for a relaxing night’s sleep. One king-size room and two singles can be found on the first floor, together with the family bathroom. Lose yourselves for hours at a time in the picturesque views from the garden. Supervise children near the stream and water feature and dine outside in the fresh air on sunny days.

Stroll up to Loughrigg Tarn, less than 500 metres away, and complete a circuit of just over 1.5 miles long around the beautiful lake. Make your way into Ambleside to shop, dine out and take a ferry out on Lake Windermere from the Waterhead Pier. Have an afternoon out in Grasmere, 8.5 miles away by car, and treat yourselves to some of the village’s famous gingerbread.

We had such a wonderful stay and loved Ellers Close. The location is fabulous, so peaceful, and it proved a great base for exploring the local fells. The house is very warm, clean and comfortable, with beautiful views from every window. Our children loved the garden and we all enjoyed watching the birds at the feeders. We hope to return and would nRead moreot hesitate to recommend the place to others. Hide

Lovely cottage, lovely en losed garden in a beautiful location with many walks. Ambleside, Bo'ness and Coniston all within a few minutes drive. The addition of garden furniture would have made it perfect during the warm days/evenings.

The location of the cottage was excellent. It was warm but lacked some of the homely touches that would have made it feel more comfortable. The layout and standard of furnishings was adequate but felt a bit thrown together! Cleanliness was ok but floors were not terribly clean.

Review: Excellent property, Well described, and a wonderful location. Cosy period cottage, with everything you'd need. Garden well enclosed for dogs, once the gate is closed. Bedrooms roomy. Excellent bathroom and modern kitchen. Plenty of local guide-books/ maps to hand. (One containing some history of the cottage "Life in Langdale". Despite beinRead moreg a period cottage, was easy to keep warm. Will return. Note to Original Cottages: Would be good if we could have had a later checkout, especially as no-one was coming that day, and the cleaners didn't arrive at 10am. Also too many signs pinned to all the cupboards / bookshelves saying "don't use as this won't be cleaned". Not sure what that meant, but pointless, and over the top. A book is a book, and part of the property experience (ie the local guidebooks/ history of the valley etc. The signs should be removed, and they are unsightly in a period cottage. Also Original Cottages had put up a sign saying to check-out at 9am above the cooker, despite the property guide at the property saying 11am, and the booking saying 10am. Finally, there are two key lockers in the wood-shed, which was confusing, as I couldn't open the first one, and found the second one (containing the key) by chance in the dark. It's on the left wall next to the light switch. Details should be updated, As should the fact that you should enter the property via the kitchen and not the "front-door". Thanks Hide

Great location and Garden, lovely cottage, with everything you need, just got let down by the standard of cleanliness, found previous occupants food remains in the dishwasher, and lots of dust and cobwebs especially in the lounge and two large piles of dog mess on the lower lawned area. When we stripped off the bed as requested, we were horrified tRead moreo see heavy staining on the mattress protector. Hide
