Iveing Cottage North is a large and 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 the town is so popular. With its 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 normally offers spacious accommodation for 10/15 people. Due to Covid restrictions and the rule of 6, occupancy has been temporarily reduced to 6 people across four 1st floor bedrooms - 2 x King, 1 x twin & 1 x Single. The top floor is now closed and also 2 showers on Ist floor - leaving a bathroom, a shower room/WC, 2 x WC and 1 x double shower room. Ground floor consists of entrance boot/drying room, spacious kitchen, dining room, lounge and laundry room/store.
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 Windermere where you can access the famous Windermere Lake Steamers, take ferries across the lake to walk and cycle, and even hire self-drive boats! 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 south at Waterhead is a lakeside beach and Borrans Park, 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.
Note: We have closed the top floor and two showers on the first floor due to Covid measures. Existing bookings with more than six guests will be accommodated within Government rules at the time of occupancy. We will be in touch if this may affect you.
We are keeping four bedrooms (for a maximum of six guests) open, so groups of four people from separate households, e.g. small walking or cycling group, could have a room each and plenty of space and facilities to socially distance in the building.
Iveing Cottage North is not taking future bookings for more than six people at the moment. For all enquiries please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
