The Cumbria/Lake District region
The Lake District National Park contains almost every feature of mountain scenery, verdant valleys, major lakes, lesser-known " tarns ", majestic waterfalls, beautiful scenery and breathtaking views. It is the largest National Park in England and has been so since 1951. Famous for its mountains, including the famous Helvellyn and Sca Fell Pike - the highest peak in England (3210 ft), the area provides a real challenge for climbers or a relaxing break in the fresh air and glorious outdoors.
Lake Windermere is situated in the heart of England's National Parkland in the beautiful lake district, famous for its lofty peaks and tranquil lakes and sheer beauty. There are 16 lakes and over 500 secluded tarns all set in magnificent countryside. Windermere, the longest lake, stretches for over 10 miles.
The Ambleside / Outgate area
Latterbarrow is part of the recently converted picturesque Bracken Fell development providing a small number of beautiful properties set in wonderful gardens and behind closed gates. Located between the popular destinations of Ambleside, approx. 2 miles and Hawkshead, less than one mile. Outgate is a small village with the Outgate Inn a few yards away serving good pub food and the famous Drunken Duck about 1 mile.
Ambleside, one of the pearls of the Lake District, is set in the centre of the region at the head of Lake Windermere. This lively market town provides everything a visitor could want – from the many shops offering wares for walkers and climbers to the many eating and drinking establishments and a wonderful small cinema with its own restaurant. Ambleside is 2 mile from the property.
The town is rich in history and heritage. Originally containing a Roman fort Ambleside has always been an important area of the Lake District. Buildings such as the 17th-century Bridge House, one of the smallest houses in Britain, and the Ambleside Museum (home to many Beatrix Potter artefacts) offer visitors an insight into local life in bygone days. Nearby Stock Ghyll Force, a beautiful waterfall, provides another stunning natural feature.
An ideal base for a walking holiday, Outgate has easy access to the surrounding fells and breathtaking mountains. For the less energetic, there are strolls along the shore, boat trips on the lake and many other things to do and see. Shoppers are well catered for with an abundance of outdoor retail outlets, craft shops and galleries.

We stayed here for our summer holiday this year and had a lovely week relaxing and walking with our two children. We found the cottage to be in a perfect location with walking straight from the door and pub a 100 metres away. The kids loved the garden and were outside most of the time running around in a safe area. A lovely quite location, will definitely be back next year!
