Garden Cottage is a traditional stone-built Lakeland cottage sleeping two just one mile from Ambleside. It is cosy, charming, and has views from all angles. The cottage is the perfect base for two people to escape to a quiet retreat.

Ambleside is just one mile away with plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs with The Drunken Duck being uphill within a stone’s throw from the property serving fantastic local food and ales. You can walk directly across to Wray Castle through Pullwood Bay and along to Hawkshead for a hike up Latterbarrow.

We did have a little trouble finding the cottage as it cannot be seen from the road but when found it was everything we could of wished for very clean and a welcome bottle of presence which was appreciated after a very long journey,the views were stunning and great walks, we couldn’t of wished to be in a better place.

Garden Cottage is great, perfect for two people and two dogs! The cottage is private and quiet, comfortable and cosy. There are fabulous walks right on the doorstep and you're right in the Lake District (what more could you want)! Ambleside and Grasmere are a short drive (or walk) from the cottage and are lovely.

A cosy property in a nice location for local walks around Windermere and beyond.

Great cottage in a very peaceful location. It had everything we needed and was the perfect base for a long weekend hiking in the nearby area with our lovely doggy.

Fantastic little home from home. Great location for exploring. Many opportunities to walk from the door. Courtyard isn’t the best for dogs, but plenty of room to the front of the property to provide them with the chance to stretch their legs. Underfloor heating a lovely touch, especially after a day walking in the rain

Garden cottage is set in a beautiful surroundings, lovely and quiet. Not too far from Ambleside main shops and restaurants. The cottage was clean and tidy, great back garden, looking over fields Great walks from the cottage, we took our dogs and they loved it. Would definitely go back and use Garden cottage

nice place in a beautiful spot with walks galore from the door, in a quiet area but only 5 mins walk to bus stop if you want to venture out in the evening, and the drunken duck only a 15 min walk. lovely place.

Well what a wonderful 6 nights stay for my 50th birthday great location everything we needed was to hand We would defiantly return

The cottage was clean, tidy and had a lovely cosy feel. Made even better with great underfloor heating. Fantastic location near enough for visits in to Ambleside and some really good walks right at the bottom of the driveway. Perfect location for us and our dogs.

This was the perfect place to come back to after long days walking. Very cosy and comfortable would highly recommend

Really cute cottage with great walks on the doorstep. Secure garden but the dog next door barking upset my dog so we didn't get the full potential but it was lovely if a little chilly due to the heating. Would make a really lovely holiday with drier weather and lovely and cool in summer

Brilliant location set just 5 minutes drive from Ambleside and beautifully quiet. Lovely sized cottage that felt cozy and warm and I’d perfect for anyone wanting to do some walking / hiking in the area. Couldn’t recommend more!!

A lovely little property which was ideal for me, my husband and our two small dogs. The enclosed yard at the back was a bonus, so we could leave the dogs to wander outside safely. Inside we had everything we needed and more. Even the weather was one of the hottest weeks of the year (thanks for organising that!) Highly recommended.

My wife and our two dogs had a lovely long weekend at the cottage. It was in a great location and we found lots of great walks in the surrounding area. It was close to several lovely towns and villages too. The cottage itself was cozy and had great views. We'd definitely stay again

Thank you, the cottage was lovely and in the perfect location.

Wonderful little stone cottage outside of the main area of Ambleside. Great facilities and everything you need for a short break including good Wi-Fi if you really feel you must stay connected with the rest of the world. Ambleside has plenty to offer for restaurants for breakfast through to dinner if you don’t want to cook yourself. Would suit couple or singletons with or without dog. Great for cyclists and walkers with easy access to Hawkshead, Windermere, Coniston and the southern lakes. Can thoroughly recommend Garden Cottage for a weekend or longer.

We had a great stay here. The cottage was perfectly clean and comfortable and had lovely views. It took us a while to find but the host got back to us straight away when we got lost! Would definitely stay again.

Nice little place as per the description, met our needs and value for money equipped with the essentials and overall got what we paid for. short drive to town but away from the crowds, so was peaceful to return to in the evenings. Bed was comfy and small kitchen but everything we needed. overall, we were very happy and would recommend and appreciated the bottle of bubbly and essential items milk tea,coffee etc really enjoyed our week in the Lake District thanks

Great stay, with nice touches throughout the property. Ideal lovely quiet location, with Ambleside and local pubs within easy walking distance. Would happily return.

Wonderful surroundings, great for walking.
On Friday, 21 Apr 2023
Very well located for walks in the beautiful Langdales (the path in front of the house takes you right up the side of Windermere and there’s another walk from the back garden) and a range of great pubs nearby. It is on a road but it is not intrusive. Great views over the fells from the main bedroom. Lovely slate floors downstairs, lots of character.

Garden cottage was a lovely place, once we found it we were allowed to store our bike in the shed whilst we went for a walk because we were an hour early. approx 2 mile walk into Ambleside which wasn’t a problem for us but anyone thinking it’s closer may be caught out. We lost hot water and had to call the out of hours number, however the plumber called us back straight away and with a few photos sent of the boiler gauges (it had lost it’s pressure) we were back in business. Kitchen utensils and crockery etc were aplenty. Bottle of fizz was a bonus. Lovely courtyard for pets and great shed storage. For the ‘out of season’ price we paid we would definitely stay again.

Cottage was perfect for me, my wife and pet dog. Excellent fenced off area so he was safe to let out. There are walks right on your doorstep which were perfect for the dog. Ambleside is a short drive away with some excellent pubs. Couldn’t fault the cottage at all.
On Friday, 24 Feb 2023
Lovely cottage well placed in the lakes to do some great walks. The cottage had everything you needed for the stay and more. Lovely little touch with the bottle of fizz when we arrived.
On Friday, 10 Feb 2023
The cottage was lovely and clean. It was located in an easily accessible area, with clear instructions to help get to and in the property. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to others.

Wow - what a lovely little property! We had an unfortunate call en route to our original location where we were notified there was an issue with our property but we were given multiple options to choose from as a replacement venue and this little cottage did not disappoint! It was perfect for our little dachshund, nice penned off back yard and lovely views of the sheep from the rear. Waking up and being able to take our dog straight to a big hill and field was lovely. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends! Lovely little touches such as milk, tea, coffee, and even a bottle of bubbly made it that little bit more special. Perfect for our Christmas break.

Thanks Michelle and Ambleside for a wonderful weekend! We will be back!

Garden Cottage is the perfect location, very close to Ambleside with lovely walks right on the doorstep. The cottage itself is very well equipped with all modern conveniences, very clean and plenty big enough for the two of us and our two dogs. A fenced area at the rear made it very easy to let the dogs out in safety. Could not recommend highly enough.
On Friday, 11 Nov 2022
Great location, lovely walks on your doorstep and the property has everything you need for a short stay. We had a problem with the boiler but Michelle had sent someone to fix it within an hour of her knowing about the problem which was great.
On Tuesday, 11 Oct 2022
This cottage has everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. It’s ideally placed for visiting local areas within a short walk or a short drive.
