There is an enclosed grassed yard at the back - ideal for a summer barbecue (shared with other residents from Blue Hill). Outside is the old privvy - great for storing bikes and muddy boots.

Further details

Unfortunately there is no private garden so dogs are not allowed.

The cottage has a steep stair-case and so can be problematic for those with mobility issues and toddlers.

The walk back from the village is only 3 minutes but is uphill!

With four adults the living space is somewhat restricted, but lovely and cosy!

The Cumbria/Lake District

The Lake District of England is a very special place and has always been a popular holiday destination. It is famous for its lakes and mountains. As well as its poets and artists.

Naturally activities such as hiking and cycling are popular in the region. The magnificent views which can be seen while on a hike are breathtaking.

For more details of the area visit Ambleside Online at


Ambleside is central to the Lake District so most people are attracted by the proximity of the fells and lakes. But it has many other amenities not usually found in a rural location.

There is an excellent cinema, tennis courts, bowling green plus a large number of bars and restaurants ranging from budget to gourmet!

Boat trips across Lake Windermere can be taken from Waterhead Pier which is again a short stroll from the cottage.

"Quaint cottage, great location."

This is a lovely little cottage in a wonderful location in Ambleside. It's so easy to wander into town and also to walk up into the beautiful countryside. It's only a teeny tiny cottage, but… More

"cosy cottage and fantastic walks"

Our third visit to Blue Hill and it is rapidly becoming a home from home, love the location with great walks and restaurants nearby. The owners look after the cottage so well and booking process is very easy. Highly recommended.

"Exceptional value for money"

Blue Hill Cottage was a wee cottage nestled in the back of a complex up a hill with panoramic views of hills across the Windermere valley. The cottage itself was exceptionally well equipped and extremely clean. We were sorry to not have requirement for the beautiful fireplace, which must be an absolute treat in the colder months. The beds were really comfy - very important after we completed the Windermere marathon! Ambleside was a stroll down the hill away, and there are plenty of places to choose from to eat and drink there. For what the cottage provided, in terms of location, scenery, provision and cleanliness, this was tremendous value for money. A real treat.
The owner was extremely helpful and prompt in responding to correspondence.

We stayed at Blue Hill Cottage for 4 nights as a family of 4. The owner Jenny did tell us that it was better suited for 2 people but we managed with 4 people as there are 2 bedrooms upstairs. The stai… More

"needs updating"

The house was the perfect size for just 2 of us, however the bathroom needs updating. (bath panels need repairing) the heating was adequate but not great (radiators did not heat properly) coal fire a bonus as we have one at home also the top of the stairs led straight into the bedrooms (if you forgot that during the night without a light on you could end up taking a tumble down them.) The house retains much of the original character which is lovely and we did have an enjoyable week. The house is only a short walk from the centre of Ambleside which has plenty of great facilities, shops, garden centre, local walks and plenty of places to eat out.

"excellent accomodation"

compact and warm cottage near to main street but up a hill which would not suit some . The private parking space is great . The cottage warms up quickly and keeps the heat well . The stairs are a bit steep but no problem for us walkers . The kitchen area is well stocked .

"Everything you need for a cosy getaway"

A small terraced cottage in a convenient location, with all the things you'd need for a short break. Ideal for a couple, but there is a second bedroom too. We enjoyed the fire during the windy we… More
