From the owner

In the very heart of Ambleside, Clare Cottage is a traditional 19th century stone built terraced cottage. Clean, spacious and contemporary with 5G broadband, smart TV and Netflix!

Centrally located and yet tucked away on a quiet road, the interior exudes an air of calm even though all the restaurants, shops, bars and cinemas are within a minutes walk from the front door. Once at the cottage you really dont need a car as you can hike from the front door or take a bus to Grasmere, Rydal or Windermere.

The interior is much larger than the photos convey, with a large through living room/dining room, with wood burning stove; a contemporary kitchen fully equipped with integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, microwave and underfloor heating.

The 3 bedrooms are spread over the upper two floors. On the first floor is a double bedroom (with small wall mounted TV) and the main family bathroom (with underfloor heating).

Up a quite narrow and steep staircase to the 2nd floor a large twin bedroom and a double bedroom are located, the double bedroom having its own stylish en suite shower room with walk in shower.

Too many cottage owners in the Lakes make little effort with updating the decor of their holiday homes, relying instead on a large tourist trade. I want to make your holiday special, a treat and so endeavour to provide a beautiful home. It is a perfect retreat for couples, friends and families with older children.

N.B. Given the recent global health crisis please be assured that we are doing all we can to make your stay a safe one. . I will send details of the measures we have put in place at the cottage

House rules

The property has quite steep stairs to the second floor so may be unsuitable for elderly or disabled guests. I have a policy of no children under 12 as the decor is not suited to many young families; white walls, white furniture and glass ornaments throughout. I make occasional exceptions where the family is aware and comfortable with such an environment. I do not allow pets at all.

A weeks let begins on Friday or Monday, short lets run from Friday to Monday or Monday to Friday.

Hi, I’m so sorry to hear you got ticketed. Ambleside is a tricky place for parking, i do provide detailed information about local public car parking just 30 seconds from the front door which is only £15 for 3 days. Hope it doesnt put you off Ambleside.
