A traditional, stone-faced Lakeland cottage, enter straight into the lounge room here at Amble Cottage where you’re greeted by a statement, exposed stone wall. The backdrop perfectly frames the warming electric Everhot stove. The cream dining kitchen to the rear is well fitted and provides direct access to the enclosed courtyard to the rear.

Stairs between two rooms lead up to the first floor where you’ll find two bedrooms, both with carpeted floors, one double and one twin. The house bathroom with shower over bath, basin and WC sits on the second floor along with a third, single bedroom which can be used if your teenagers don’t wish to share the twin room below. Please note: maximum of 4 guests.

A small, enclosed courtyard to the rear has furniture provided and parking is by way of permits – one for use on Millans Park, the other for use on the nearby Council car park which can also be used on several other car parks throughout South Lakeland.

Autumn sees Lakeland bathed in a collage of red and gold whilst the village twinkles throughout November and December once the festive lights are switched on during the annual Lantern procession, always a grand and popular event in the community calendar.

Had a wonderful stay at this property! The location is perfect – centre of Ambleside within walking distance of all the shops and local food places. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare food, which made my stay very convenient. Having a parking permit is a huge plus, especially in this busy area. The parking permit allows parking on the road close to the property as well as many local car parks. Also the wifi is great. However, be aware that the property has steep stair cases and the bathroom is up two steep flights of stairs at the very top of the property. It wasn't a big issue for me, but it can be difficult for the elderly of those who are less mobile. Despite this, the family enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place for its comfort and excellent location. The only criticism I have is that the floors in the kitchen and living room were not completely clean. Despite this the place is tidy, well equipped for a family and we would stay again!

We had the most wholesome time whilst in Ambleside. The cottage was beautiful, spotless and is in a great location, 2 minutes walk and you are in the centre. We managed to park on the road near the cottage using the parking permits, there were more spaces than what we thought there was going to be. It felt like home straightaway with how cosy it is. Its added bonus was that it is dog friendly and he loved his holiday too! Cant wait to come back to our new happy place

A stunning place with amazing views and right in the centre of Ambleside. Everything within easy walking distance, with local shops and pubs around. The house itself was clean, homely and perfect for a getaway in the country.

We have just got back from our stay at Amble Cottage, and it was nothing short of perfect. The house itself, was well equipped with everything we needed and more. A travel cot and highchair were provided for my 1 year old - which was a massive bonus and a massive help to us. It was clean and beautiful inside with warm and cosy decor - you couldn’t help but feel right at home. There were subtle Christmas decorations around the lounge area, which were a particularly nice touch - and just made it even more welcoming. Amble Cottage is located perfectly within Ambleside, set back from the main streets - but only a short 5 minute walk to local shops, pubs and restaurants. Which was perfect for us. The parking permits that we were kindly able to use were also a great help. Not only did it allow us to park on the street down from the property - but also at a number of car parks around the area. So thank you for that! We can’t wait for our next visit!

We go to the Lake District every year with our 2 Retrievers but decided this year to try and stay in Ambleside as our best walks always started there! After alot of research we found Amble Cottage. The cottage was lovely, neat, clean with essential cleaning products and plenty of other kitchen utensils ( loved the hoover etc as I like to clean up as I go ) Bathroom on 2nd floor but if you're there on a 6 holiday the steps will stretch your legs..Parking and carpark permits brilliant as our car didnt move for first 3 days as our planned walks were from Ambleside, when we did venture out to Windermere the carpark permit was for the exact places we wanted!!! Could ramble on but we will be booking this place again and would recommend

The cottage was beautiful and had everything you need. It is also perfectly located for travelling around but with lots of local shops within walking distance. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others

A fantastic house in a great location. Well stocked kitchen, lovely bedrooms and a cosy living room. Central to Ambleside but incredibly quiet in the evenings. Great for us with 2 kids and a dog. Appreciated the use of the local parking permits (one for use in the road around the house, one for around Ambleside, Kendall, etc). Thank you for having us, we would love to visit again!

Really lovely, homely cottage with lots of beautiful decor and attention to detail. Comfortable and well-equipped. Great location with easy access to shops, restaurants and loads of spectacular walks in Ambleside and the surrounding area.

Really enjoyed our stay, comfy beds and sofas were a must after long days walking. Central location but quiet. Easy to find and the parking permit was a massive help.

Lovely accommodation in an amazing location! Very well thought out with everything you could need and more. A lovely first family holiday for us!

Beautiful little house in a great location. We appreciated the bottle of Prosecco on our welcome. We would stay again.
On Thursday, 06 Jul 2023
The cottage was lovely and clean, and in a great location. There were plenty of basics supplied like milk, tea bags and loo roll to get you started. There was even a bottle of Prosecco; unfortunately my wife is expecting so I had to drink it all!

This property is in an excellent location a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. Having both an on street parking permit, and a car park permit which can be used in all of South Lakeland was very useful. The property was very clean on arrival with a good selection of cups, bowls and things in the kitchen. The TV has Freesat so there were a lot more channels than you get on Freeview in the area, and the sofas were comfy. All of the beds used were very comfy, with wardrobe storage in all bedrooms. On the negative side, the bathroom being on the top floor was a bit of a drag, especially as it was pushing 30C the week we stayed. The electric shower had a tiny and hard to direct shower head, and this was the first shower curtain I've seen in years. Unfortunately,. unlike the rest of the house, the shower curtain had gone orange at the buttom with mould. The second bedroom has two single beds, which although comfortable, are pushed right against the wall so when someone turned over in them, there hand was stuck in the air against the wall. Overall we also found it a little cramped for 3 people with full luggage. Still a decent place to stay, especially for the price, but a few things could be addressed.

Lovely 3-bed cottage, immaculately clean and great location just off the main street in ambleside.

We have had the most wonderful week in Ambleside for me to relive my childhood holidays. Cottage is beautifully furnished & decorated. Perfect location for the rest of the Lakes and the most excellent value for money given Easter holidays. Milk and Prosecco on arrival most welcome! Cottage wasn’t as clean as I would have expected but on emailing agent agent I was responded to within hours…I suggested more pegs needed for washing line and someone brought a bag round the next day! What an excellent service! I would thoroughly recommend and we will re book for next year, thank you!

We stayed here from the 6th to 10th Feb. We come to the lakes quite frequently and the location for this place was perfect. It was very quick and easy to get to and from places, especially if you’re hiking or fancied a walk to a restaurant. The place itself was lovely, very clean and perfect for my partner, dog and I. The only thing I’d say is those who are wanting to book it and have mobility issues then just be aware as the bathroom is on the 3rd floor. I felt like I was going on a hike just to the bathroom haha. The stairs are quite steep, and the bathroom isn’t as modern as the rest of the house - It is also advertised that there is a log burner, but you’re not allowed to use it - it took a while to heat the house up! Having said that, I would give the place a solid 9.5/10! Definitely will be returning.

Nice little cottage in the heart of Ambleside. The location could not have been better. The two parking permits provided took the hassle out of parking. Really peaceful location and yet five minutes walk to all the amenities of Ambleside. Loads of nice pubs and shops and a coop within five minutes walk. Nice walks, especially if bringing your four legged friend. The waterfalls were a short stroll away and there’s a nice dog friendly park within ten minutes too. Comfy beds and a nice touch of a complimentary bottle of fizz on arrival.

Had a great week in Amble Cottage. Great location near the centre of Ambleside for exploring the town and surrounding area. It's fitted out to a high standard with everything you would need. Plenty of space for 4 people. The 3rd bedroom is a good feature so my sons didn't have to share and had more space.Thoroughly recommend this property.

Lovely cottage in a great location in Ambleside
On Tuesday, 03 May 2022
I thoroughly recommend Amble Cottage. The house had everything we needed, has a warm & cosy feel and great equipment and some nice books to get into the Lake District spirit. The location is excellent for hikes and exploring Ambleside and the surrounding area. We did the Fairfield Horseshoe starting right from the cottage. A special shout out dinner recommendation for other travellers is “Lucy’s on a plate”. What a great place.
On Tuesday, 26 Apr 2022
The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed. Very cosy and very clean. Location was amazing with plenty of parking on the street or the car parks nearby. Communication was great, all our questions and requests were answered in a very timely manner. Would definitely recommend the cottage to everyone coming to Lake District.

Just returned from staying at Amble cottage for a week. Ideal quiet location but just steps from the restaurants and shops and of course the many walks which start from town. Bed very comfortable. Amble Cottage is very well cared for, presented beautifully and was also well stocked and cleaned to a high standard. We can’t wait to come back.

We had a wonderful 15 night stay at Amble Cottage. It is beautifully furnished and has a lot of personal touches which are a delight. The cottage has everything you need and it is in a quiet location whilst still being in the heart of Ambleside! We had the best nights sleep ever as the beds are so comfortable! We are looking forward to returning!

What an incredible place!! If you’re looking for a cosy cottage with a great location this is the place. We loved the log fire, garden area and the location! Great to walk into Ambleside for dinner, and close to all of the walks. Amazing stay in Ambleside and will be returning! Thank you!

Brilliant accommodation in a beautiful setting just a very short walk from Ambleside centre. Would definitely book again!
On Saturday, 09 Oct 2021
A fantastic cosy cottage in the heart of Ambleside with local amenities all within walking distance. Extremely comfortable especially if like us you have a wet and windy week but still want to get out walking, Amble cottage is the perfect place to warm up. We will be using Lakeland retreats again!

We had a lovely stay at Amble Cottage. It is in such a brilliant location, the beautiful soft furnishings make it very cosy and the kitchen is very well kitted out. We also really appreciated the prosecco, thank you! We would absolutely book Amble cottage

We had a great stay at Amble Cottage, the cottage was clearly freshly cleaned on arrival and well presented, the quality of decor, cooking pans/utensils etc was excellent and I would certainly recommend the property to anyone looking to explore Ambleside the the surrounding hills, lakes and valleys.
On Saturday, 21 Aug 2021
A beautiful cottage in the heart of Ambleside with local amenities in walking distance. Everything we needed was provided and after a long drive the prosecco was very welcome. The owners were responsive to any queries and the cottage was super clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return.
On Saturday, 14 Aug 2021
The perfect cottage in the heart of Ambleside. Close to all local shops restaurants and supermarkets and walks. The cottage itself was home away from home with all the extra little bits added on. We loved the place and will most definitely be back again.

Lovely property in a great location in Ambleside. Thanks for having us Michelle 🙂
On Saturday, 24 Jul 2021
This is a lovely cottage - great size and extremely clean. The outside area actually is slightly bigger than photographed - you can sit 4 people around the outside table. The rooms are good sizes and it is full of character. It is a perfect location as it is 2 min walk to shops/restaurants/pubs in Ambleside and there is so much to do and see in the local area - it was our first time to the Lakes and it was gorgeous. 2 parking permits are provided, one for the street closest to the cottage and one for other car park nearby and in other towns - extremely helpful! Would definitely recommend staying and would go again in a heartbeat!
