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

The 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.

Ambleside

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.
