A Traditional Cosy Cottage in The Heart of Ambleside

Nestled in the heart of Ambleside, Graystones Cottage is a delightful two-storey Lakeland stone cottage thoughtfully renovated to provide a relaxed cottage feel with comfortable, contemporary accommodation, two bathrooms and lovely fell-top views from all the bedrooms.

The cosy lounge with comfy leather sofas is the perfect spot to relax after a day of exploring, along with a traditional slate mantel over the lounge wood-burning stove adding to the warm welcome straight through the front door. A stylish well-equipped kitchen/dining room with original slate flooring provides a great space for preparing and enjoying meals together, while a hugely useful utility area by the back door includes a washing machine, a tumble-dryer, and a large radiator with coat-hanging space above and boot-rack below for drying out kit ready for the next day’s adventures.

Upstairs, sink into comfy beds with crisp linens for a great night’s sleep and unlimited hot water from the gas combi-boiler, a luxurious soak in the freestanding Victorian-style bath or long hot showers can be enjoyed anytime.

Outside, a delightful enclosed rear courtyard garden provides a perfect sunny spot for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine after the day’s adventures. In addition, a small courtyard shed provides useful bike storage space, ideal for those looking to explore the local area on two wheels.

With polished wood flooring, and original slate flooring throughout the ground floor, Graystones Cottage is dog friendly, with one well-behaved small/medium-sized dog welcome.

Great stay as always.

Lovely property, right in the heart of Ambleside but in a quiet backwater. We started in another property but because of issues with the boiler, we were immediately moved to Greystones Cottage. This property had everything we needed for a fortnights stay and we were sad when the holiday came to an end.

Had a great week staying at this lovely cottage. Cottage was very comfortable and very well equipped. Thanks very much for a great stay.
