In the Heart of Ambleside a delightful traditional Lakeland Cottage with a contemporary twist

Bowfell is a delightful, two-storey Lakeland stone cottage in the heart of the vibrant town of Ambleside. A stylish and thoughtful renovation provides attractive, light and airy open-plan living, with comfortable and contemporary accommodation. Much of the original character of the cottage has been retained, including local slate flooring, a beautiful traditional slate mantle over a centre-piece wood burner in the lounge and exposed beams in the top bedroom, from where lovely views of Wansfell can be seen across the rooftops.

Bowfell is stylishly finished and well-equipped, with great attention to detail. The light and welcoming lounge with comfortable leather sofas allows for easy relaxation by the wood-burning stove after a day’s walking on the fells, while the open-plan feel makes this a great space for bringing friends and family together. The well-equipped kitchen/dining area which opens out to the lounge, is where cooking and socialising become natural companions.

A useful utility room by the back door includes a good-sized coat rack/ boot drying area along with a washing machine, tumble dryer and an adjacent Wetroom, all providing easy wash off, dry out & storage for kit and equipment ready for the next day’s adventures.

Upstairs, soft beds beckon with high-quality linens to sink into for a good night’s sleep and with unlimited hot water from the gas combi-boiler, a luxurious soak in the first-floor Victorian-style bath or long hot showers can be enjoyed anytime.

Outside a lovely enclosed rear courtyard provides a perfect secluded spot for a morning coffee or alfresco dining, with a small bin store and an outside tap & hose - helpful for washing down muddy boots and dogs!

With slate flooring throughout the ground floor and utility room space for dog leads, bowls and bedding, Bowfell is a dog-friendly cottage, with one well-behaved small/medium-sized dog welcome.

A lovely, well equipped house. It has everything you’d need. The location was great. Ambleside is a great place to stay and to explore the Lakes. Lots of lovely walks on its doorstep. Would definitely recommend this property, we had a fantastic week.
