Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
- This quaint cottage is almost hidden up a leafy lane. Thick walls testify that the cottage is very old. It is compact but well laid out. The accommodation comprises front door leading straight into the living room which has a dining table under the stairs. It is open plan to the kitchen which is well fitted with oak units. There is a traditional stone hearth with an open coal fire. There is also electric central heating.
- Steep stairs lead to front bedroom with double bed, back bedroom with twin beds, and a pleasant bathroom. 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. There is an off road parking space.
- With the village and the fells so close-by you can abandon the car for the duration if you so wish.

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 www.amblesideonline.co.uk
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.
