General Description

Leave wet coats and boots in the handy heated entrance porch before continuing inside to Wilwyn, a charming cottage for 3 people and 1 lucky dog just a short walk from the centre of Ambleside.

The living room is wonderfully cosy and incredibly inviting. Relax on the 2-seater sofa or armchair, all perfectly positioned around the wood burning stove ideal for a warm night in in front of the fire. There is excellent WiFi and the cottage is equipped with a smart TV with freesat as well as a DVD player and a sound bar through which you can stream your own music, as you also can through the kitchen radio. The living room leads through to a fully fitted kitchen. In here you'll find everything you'll need for a self-catering holiday: there's an electric cooker and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washer/dryer. Enjoy a hearty meal at the wooden dining table in the kitchen, perfect for sociable cooking and dining. There’s plenty of storage space in kitchen cupboards, and additional storage room in the ‘outhouse’ off the patio where some of the cleaning equipment is kept.

An open tread wooden staircase leads upstairs from the living room. On the first floor you'll find the two lovely bedrooms and family shower room. First up there is the pretty double room, with a standard double bed, and an original feature fireplace. It's a very welcoming and relaxing bedroom. The second bedroom has a small 4ft double, suitable for one person, again with an original feature fireplace. This bedroom is at the rear of the cottage and has delightful views over the shared garden, the surrounding rooftops and Loughrigg fell. Last but not least on the first floor you'll find the modern shower room with WC, washbasin and shower cubicle - ideal for reinvigorating tired muscles after a day out exploring. Furnishings throughout are comfortable with dressed slate floors and rugs downstairs, wooden tread stairs and carpets upstairs.

Outside is a delightful private patio with a wooden table and chairs. It's a lovely spot for dining al fresco. Guests also have access to the shared garden beyond the patio, a pretty bonus area for making the most of the sunshine. Wilwyn also has a stone outbuilding at the top of the garden with hanging space for two bikes. There is parking opposite the cottage for a small car and access to a separate garage or parking space about 20m away if this is difficult to access at busy times.
