Availability & Reviews


One of a handful of exclusive apartments located at Studio House, this cosy and comfortable former artist’s workspace is bright, light and airy. Elevated above the street, up a driveway and reached up a flight of external stove stone steps, Studio Cottage is well presented; enter into the sitting room with laminate flooring and a centrally placed gas-fired iron stove around which the comfy sofas sit.

An inner hallway leads to a neat and newly fitted dining/kitchen with Amtico flooring, modern appliances and a stylish breakfast bar.

The pretty double bedroom sits to the front of the cottage and is presented in a country cottage style with a lovely outlook towards Loughrigg Fell and Nab Scar.

The contemporary, fully tiled bathroom offers a deep bath with an electric shower, basin and WC, perfect for a long soak after a day on the hills.

Outside, a small patio garden area has bench seating and there’s an additional shared patio area, again with seating. Enjoy extensive views over the village to the fells beyond.

Parking for unloading is at the bottom of the steps – take care with low sided vehicles.

For long-term parking, a parking permit is supplied for use on the nearby long-stay car parks and can be used on several other car parks within South lakes providing quite a saving on your holiday.

Please note: Studio Cottage is accessed via external, slate steps so may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties. The steps can be slippery in wet weather.

Great little cottage in the centre of the Lakes. It had everything we needed and we would return in the future.
On Monday, 03 Jun 2024
Great location with parking a couple of minutes walk away and all the shops, restaurants and pubs you need on your doorstep. Place is the perfect size for those on your own or travelling as a pair.
On Monday, 27 May 2024
Great location in the centre of Ambleside. No parking at location but pass for council car park provided. Nearest car park a few minutes away but can be tricky to get a spot at busy times. Overall we had a great stay and would stay here again.

I had such a great stay - the perfect spot to explore The Lakes from. Thank you!
On Friday, 03 May 2024
We've stayed at Studio cottage 3 years in a row, that's how much we like it! It is in the centre of Ambleside, which is about an hour from most places in the Lakes really which gives lots of options when choosing hiking routes. The cottage is fully fitted with the kitchen which is a massive bonus as it allows you to cook your own meals. We will be staying next year too!
On Monday, 25 Mar 2024
Perfect stay! We love Ambleside and this stay made us love it even more Spotless, right in the centre of Ambleside, everything you need within a 5 minute walk. Parking permit so you can leave your car in the local car park but still able to unload car outside of studio. Can’t fault it at all - we will be back!

Just had a lovely new year break at studio cottage, the place was great and location was perfect right in the centre of Ambleside. Place was clean and Michelle’s team were always very quick at responding to any questions we had. Would definitely come back to stay again.

We had a lovely stay in the studio! My wife and 11 month old baby had a great time in the studio with so many amenities and access to all the local hot spots in the Lake District. This studio is perfect and Michelle is a great host, very accommodating!

Great little cottage, felt very private but was right in the centre of town. Very warm and cosy. We didn’t feel up to reversing the car up the driveway so carried our luggage from the King Street car park which was only 2-3 mins away on foot.
On Saturday, 28 Oct 2023
Amazing stay and location. There are a few steps to the cottage but managed fine with a buggy and baby. Walkable to everything in Ambleside

Everything about Michelle's apartment was amazing. We had no issue with parking luckily as no one else was next to us! Would definitely return thank you for having us!

Had a fantastic week at Studio Cottage which is perfectly located in the centre of Ambleside. The cottage itself was perfect for a family of 3 with great amenities, we would definitely recommend to those wanting to visit Ambleside.

Great Location in the middle of Ambleside, opposite a pub but no issues with noise. Walkable to shops and restaurants etc
On Saturday, 26 Aug 2023
Overall had a nice stay in the studio, when arriving and departing best to reverse up the hill off lake road opposite herby jacksons. Some say stairs are a struggle, if you have mobility issues possibility but overall not that bad getting into the property. Cleanliness 7/10 Amenities in property 6/10 Location 10/10 Hosts 10/10 Access 8/10 (for us it wasnt an issue but for say my parents 65&70 yr old may be a bit of exercise) Parking 8/10 have to park in a carpark 7 min walk not bad just to keep in mind Not noisy at all property sits just above ambleside village and can barely here anything. Would stay again though! In the perfect spot

Excellent location all shops .restaurants & pubs very close by .beautiful garden with Mountain View’s.a lovely homely place to stay would highly recommend it to anybody who wants to stay in Ambleside
On Saturday, 08 Jul 2023
We really enjoyed our stay at Studio Cottage! The company in charge of the property was very responsive and helped us with some minor issues we experienced during our stay. There was a beautiful view and it was in an EXCELLENT location which couldn’t be improved! Nice and modern amenities to include a washer/dryer and smart tv. Lots of steps up to the cottage - not for those who cannot do lots of stone steps and wouldn’t recommend for those with lots of luggage or a heavy pram.
On Thursday, 06 Jul 2023
Lovely apartment in the centre of Ambleside. Close to everything and car park you can use with the permit provided is close by too. Clean and had everything you would need for a few days. Would definitely stay again.

Great little place for two in a fantastic location. Complimentary bottle of wine and milk in the fridge on arrival was a really thoughtful addition. Loved our stay

Studio 5 is in a fantastic location in Ambleside, with parking close by. Flat was well equipped with everything we needed. Perfect spot for a trip to the lakes, we will be back.
On Tuesday, 29 Nov 2022
Great little cottage for 2, ideal location within walking distance and bus stops. I agree with other reviews saying it needs a deep clean, especially the cream/white carpets and rugs but everywhere in the cottage was clean.
On Monday, 31 Oct 2022
Nice cottage, location was very good.
On Wednesday, 26 Oct 2022
Great location and good lodging. The steps up are real. Easy to use washer/dryer and stove/oven.
On Saturday, 01 Oct 2022
A good stay with a couple of nice finishing touches. Not recommended for elderly people with tight steps to accommodation. Ambleside is a beautiful location with ample pubs, restaurants, walking and gift shops, Matthews Bistro is highly recommended. Boat trip to Windermere with some fantastic views and the car parking permit useful for local car parks (you do need to be there by 1030 otherwise spaces tend to have gone).
On Thursday, 29 Sep 2022
We had a lovely stay at this property. The location really is fantastic - the views out of the windows prove it! The kitchen and bathroom are really modern and well-decorated and kitted out. The wine rack and spa gift bag are lovely touches that were much appreciated. Also, the amount of walk booklets, maps, and guides in the property are fantastic and were very well used. Our main concern was the cleanliness. A fair bit of TLC is needed - mainly the floors, or maybe a deep-clean. We still had a wonderful week, but felt this let the property down.
On Friday, 23 Sep 2022
Lovely cottage close to all amenities but so secluded and peaceful at the same time.
On Tuesday, 20 Sep 2022
Great place to stay, will definitely be staying here again.
On Thursday, 15 Sep 2022
We had a lovely stay in Ambleside, it’s such a pretty town with plenty to do. The cottage was perfect, it had everything we needed & is located right in the middle of the town. The bar across the road does lovely food too. We will definitely stay with this company again

Had a lovely time at studio cottage. Location is excellent.
On Wednesday, 14 Sep 2022
Very comfortable accommodation, excellent location for everything around Ambleside, Grasmere, Windermere. Parking pass was a bonus! The wine was totally unexpected and an excellent welcome. There was nothing we needed that hadn't been thought of. Would absolutely recommend and revisit.
On Tuesday, 30 Aug 2022
The cottage is in a fantastic location, right in the heart of Ambleside. It had everything we needed for a relaxing break.
On Thursday, 04 Aug 2022
This is the second time we have stayed at Studio Cottage, great location. Lots of information in the property for walks, eating etc. Really lovely property just what we wanted.
On Friday, 29 Jul 2022
Lovely bungalow in centre of Ambleside. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable . Loved the garden and biews.
On Saturday, 09 Jul 2022
Had a wonderful stay in this property - just as pictured with everything we could need for our time there. The location is perfect, Ambleside is a lovely place and a great starting point to explore the Lake District from. The communication prior to our stay was great and timely too. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit the area.
On Tuesday, 31 May 2022
A very central location with everything you could need for 2!

Very nice cottage in a great location for the lakes, would definitely recommend.
On Monday, 25 Apr 2022
Lovely quaint cottage with a great location. Everything you needed and hosts were helpful. Slight issue with cleanliness but nothing major.
On Tuesday, 29 Mar 2022
What a fabulous cottage right in the center of Ambleside; yet set-back enough so you feel totally remote!! Extremely comfortable, tastefully furnished, excellent kitchen - everything you need. Plus a treat awaiting guests. Will definitely be back!!!
On Tuesday, 15 Mar 2022
This was a lovely getaway in the heart of Ambleside. The location was perfect for exploring the town, and the cottage was very peaceful with great views over the local mountains. Michelle was so easy to communicate with and helpful before over visit. We would definitely recommend it!
On Tuesday, 22 Feb 2022
It was perfect for what we wanted - the sofa and fire were brilliant after a long day’s walk. We’d definitely stay again!
On Friday, 22 Oct 2021
Loved our stay here. It was a great location to explore the surrounding area. And when it rained, it was a lovely place to sit and read our books. The owners were fantastic from booked to checkout.

amazing place, perfect location
On Saturday, 07 Aug 2021
Great location in Ambleside's quaint (but not old-fashioned) town centre, with lovely views from the outside patio area - a great spot to soak up the late afternoon sun. The cottage is cosy and modern with a well equipped kitchen, essential ingredients (including milk), walking maps, DVDs, and WiFi. There's a music system too but we didn't try it out. Due to the central location you don't get parking right at the property (reversing the car up the hill to drop off luggage was not for the faint of heart, and you'll need to be comfortable with a few short flights of steps), but the parking permit - valid for a nearby carpark and numerous other carparks in this part of the Lake District - was a really nice perk. This was my first visit to the Lake District and I thought it was absolutely beautiful. And this was a great little spot to come home to each day.

This place has a lovely view and is in a great location. The kitchen is well kitted out for self-catering and the apartment has all the basics. Communication was great, check-in/out were seamless. A good base for exploring the area.
On Monday, 21 Jun 2021
Great location, Ambleside is the perfect mid-spot to explore the lakes. The bungalow is in a great central location, with a free parking permit - essential. There were a lovely little touches in the apartment which made our stay even more comfortable.
