Iveing Cottage North is a large, welcoming but un-fussy home-from-home for family or group holidays. The cottage is located on a quiet road in Ambleside and has fantastic views of the fells across the trees and rooftops as well as its own parking spaces - a luxury in Ambleside! With lovely fell walks and fantastic mountain or road biking right form the door, it's easy to see why Ambleside is so popular. With Ambleside's many and varied restaurants and pubs all less than 10 minutes' walk away, Iveing Cottage North is a great place to return to at the end of a long day in the hills. There is a quite small grass area for sitting out, but the main sitting out area is, of course, the glorious Lake District National Park.
Occupying a good portion of a grand property and with many original features, Iveing Cottage North offers spacious accommodation for 10 people but with the benefit of an additional 7th bedroom, which can also be booked (for an additional charge) for a larger group or family gathering of up to 16 people. The 7th bedroom is a dorm-style room containing 6 additional bed spaces - there are 2 single beds and 2 sets of bunk beds.
Ambleside is at the very heart of the Lake District. Due to its central location in this World Heritage Site, there is so much to do for young and old - and all situated in the idyllic landscape that has inspired artists for centuries. Ambleside is also at the headwater of lake Windermere where you can access the famous Windermere Lake Steamers, take ferries across the lake to walk and cycle, and you can even hire self-drive boats here too. Close to Iveing Cottage North you'll find a fantastic park with a marvellous children's play area and football fields. Just 10 minutes' walk away at Waterhead is a lakeside beach, complete with large grass areas, plenty of benches and barbecue facilities - perfect for those long summer evenings in The Lakes.
Iveing Cottage North can also be booked alongside Iveing Cottage Apartment to sleep an additional 2 people.
