Cosy retreat in central Ambleside, ideal for couples, friends, or small families. The perfect base to explore the Lakes and just a stone’s throw from local shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants.

Sitting to the rear of a large historic property, this lovely home in a quaint complex of stone properties in heart of Ambleside is the perfect base for exploring Lake Windermere. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms and welcoming one canine companion, it’s the perfect accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who want to spend their days hiking, biking and sailing at Windermere, and their evenings chilling out on the property’s private patio or mixing with the locals in the village pub.

Accessed via a set of steps at the rear of the main house, this property has a homely cottage feel and enjoys stunning views across the fells. Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a quaint galley kitchen – the perfect place to rustle up some dinner for your nearest or dearest. Get the gang together to enjoy dinner at the table in the lounge/diner – a pretty room with original beams and views towards Latterbrow and the Fairfield Horseshoe. You may even be lucky enough to spot deer while you eat. After dinner, put your feet up in front of the TV in the lounge area, or step outside onto the small private patio, crack open a bottle of something cool and crisp and watch the stars come out. At the end of the day you’ll find a bright and cheerful double bedroom with fell views, as well as a cosy double with original beams.

Set sail for the day on Lake Windermere. Hop on board in Ambleside (0.5 miles), where boats will take you to Bowness, Brockhole or Lakeside. Alternatively, take a historic stroll at second-century Ambleside Roman Fort (1 mile), or hike up to the spectacular waterfall at Stock Ghyll (1 mile).

The cottage is very well located. Near enough to Ambleside for easy access to shops, bars and restaurants, yet far away enough to escape the night-time noise such establishments inevitably create. The facilities within the property cater for pretty much every need. A fully equipped kitchen, a lounge with large TV and plenty of seating and a dining Read morearea again with plentiful seating. Two well appointed bedrooms and a small but comfortable bathroom complete the accommodation. Wonderful. Hide

Myself and my parents stayed at Iveing View for 2 nights in May . All aspects of the accommodation were outstanding. It was clean, well furnished, extremely comfortable and the owners are very approachable and made us feel welcome. The kitchen is amply stocked with equipment. The cottage is extremely close to Ambleside town centre (5 minutes walk!)Read more. Its also a great base for exploring the wider Lake District. We will certainly have no hesitation staying here again. Hide

Great cottage in a superb location, 4 minute walk into town. The cottage is very well equipped with good quality bedding and towels and very comfortable throughout. Lovely views from all the windows and is very private and quiet with one off-road parking space. Highly recommend and would most definitely stay here again.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
