Taking its name from no. 3 in our local dialect, Tethera has been thoughtfully re-modelled in recent times to create a comfortable, relaxing haven, a special place to relax, unwind and share precious times together.

From the front, enter into a stylish open plan living space with solid oak flooring and an exposed stone wall which was uncovered during the major refurbishment works, now a stunning backdrop to the warming wood-burning stove. The well-equipped and fitted kitchen is sure to be well utilised for creating that special occasion dinner or why not gather around the table and enjoy a board game or partake in a couple of drinks and nibbles before a night out in the village?

The first floor is home to two bedrooms, one king and one double, both with solid oak furnishings and smart TV sharing in a modern shower room. The master super-king bedroom sits on the second floor, again with handbuilt oak fitments, comfy seating and smart TV and with private access to a glorious bathroom with a free-standing, double-ended bath and separate shower, hand basin, and WC. Heads or tails as to who will sleep in this room?

This property also provides two parking permits, which is a great advantaged in central Ambleside.

Location & Nearby


Located directly opposite the iconic Lakeland landmark, The Bridge House, Tethera enjoys a convenient village centre location, ideal for a family or three couples to enjoy at any time of the year. There’s little need to use the car when choosing Ambleside as your base as everything really is on your doorstep – you may even decide to stay put for the week and not venture out of town!

Days will no doubt be spent exploring the local fell ranges, besides the shore, or even on, England’s largest Lake, or enjoying a gentle stroll and soaking up the backdrop of superb scenery that envelopes the village.

And, when the sun goes down, take in the latest blockbuster at one of two cinemas, sample one of Ambleside’s fine restaurants, The Old Stamp House being a firm favourite with us or enjoy some live music in one of the local pubs.

The property is well managed and our stay was comfortable. This is one of the good locations in Ambleside from where visiting the lakes and going either direction was very easy.

Really lucky to get this place a few days before our stay!! Great location in the heart of Ambleside!! Loved our stay!!

Amazing location and great property. Really nice touch of a little food hamper would very happily stay again.

We've been staying here the same time of year for the past few years. On our recent stay we appreciated the upgraded bathrooms, luxury hamper and cleanliness of the place. Tethera is very centrally positioned, and has everything you need for a comfortable and luxurious stay.

Great position close to all amenities and you can still hike from there without using the car. House is well appointed with everything you need.
On Monday, 03 Jul 2023
A wonderful property, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Ideally situated in the centre of Ambleside. The welcome pack, is a lovely touch. The car parking passes that you can also use at other selected car parks are an added bonus. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Lovely stay, the cottage looks just as it is in the photos. The place was immaculate, easy to get into and the provided parking permits were extremely useful. I would thoroughly recommend staying.

Great Stay and loads to do. Living Room was a bit tight for six adults but we managed. Sink a bit small in main on suite and a few marks on stair walls and front door other wise all ok

We stayed at Tethera for 3 nights with our family and it was perfect from start to finish! There has been no detail overlooked at the property, they even had utensils in the kitchen I didn’t even know I needed! The location was perfect for us. Very central to Ambleside town and walking distance to all shops, pubs and restaurants. Parking was easy in the carpark straight opposite the house with the added bonus of permits supplied! We cooked in and ate out during our stay. Sunday lunch at the Priest Hole is not to be missed and there is a fab beer tap bar opposite for this who like a cask ale. We would come back in a heart beat to stay! Thank you

Really comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a great location, with easy access to lovely walks and restaurants. We appreciated the cleanliness, tasteful decor, welcome hamper which included delicious local produce, parking permit, and beautiful views of Loughrigg over the slate buildings and bridge house opposite. Our four nights couldn’t have been better and we feel very lucky to have stayed in this fantastic place in cold, clear weather. Absolutely perfect in every way!
On Sunday, 27 Nov 2022
What a gem!! Literally in the heart of Ambleside. It has everything you need over 3 floor. The most beautiful decor, it really was perfect. Every time we stay in the Lakes now it will have to be there!

A very smart well appointed property right in the heart of Ambleside. Everything is on your doorstep.
On Thursday, 13 Oct 2022
I had a break away at this property with two family members and we all needed separate bedrooms. This was perfect. It was a perfect location right in the heart of Ambleside, meaning that we could easily walk (with my elderly dad) to local restaurants. It was a lovely house, very clean and cosy with ample space. The welcome basket of local bread, butter, jam, milk and biscuits were very welcome and there was a small pot of tea and coffee too. All the beds were comfy and the whole property was decorated to a high spec. Would I recommend it to others? Yes, I would :-)
On Saturday, 01 Oct 2022
We had a wonderful visit. The house is beautiful and the location couldn’t be any better! Would definitely return

Stylish cottage, very comfortable and clean. Perfect location for walks and exploring Ambleside and beyond. Parking permit was good.

This property provided an ideal central point for a stay with our 4 friends in the Lake District. The accommodation was superb and after extremely busy days, it provided a very relaxing place to wind down and enjoy a glass of wine. Ambleside provided excellent restaurants, all within easy walking distance and like all other places we visited in the Lake District, the service and warmth shown, was excellent.

A really lovely place location is excellent

Great apartment in the city Center - if you are looking to stay in the Lake District, please choose this place - you will love it. 3 big bedrooms and a great living room + kitchen. Perfect for upto 6 people.

My friends and I came to stay for a long weekend, arriving on the Friday and setting off on the Monday. When we arrived there was a welcome basket of food waiting for us, which we were grateful for after a long day of travelling! Every room was clean and tidy and fresh towels were laid out on the bed like you would expect in a hotel. There are great bits of modern technology in the house too, including Sonos speakers which were great for the mornings and evenings with everyone around in the communal area. The location was excellent, practically being in the town centre already but not far from the start point of some good walks - Loughrigg Fell loop springs to mind. Overall, a fantastic place to stay! worth noting all the beds are double, so if it is six friends make sure you're prepared to share a bed!

Absolutely beautiful place to stay. Everything about this stay was wonderful. We visited for my 22nd birthday and my friends and I had ample choice of restaurants, things to do and amazing walks with incredible views. Perfect balance of urban and rural in this location. Brilliant stay. Thank you Lakeland Retreats:)

Great location, house in excellent condition and very good value.
On Tuesday, 15 Mar 2022
Wonderful property in a great location. Really cozy place. Well-equipped kitchen. The welcome box was much appreciated(milk, butter, bread, eggs & biscuits). Recommend walks from property to Loughrigg Fell & Stock Ghyll Force. We had some great food at The Apple Pie Cafe (amazing gingerbread), Tap Yard (good pizza & beer) & Queens Head, Troutbeck. The Golden Rule is a fantastic local pub for a beer. We also visited National Trust Hill Top - Beatrix Potter House & took a boat ride down to Bowness. A great week’s holiday.

We stayed here for my girlfriends birthday and we had a amazing time. It really felt like a home away from home. The dining area was perfect for us as we love to spend time together playing games and shearing a bottle of wine
On Wednesday, 02 Feb 2022
Fabulous 3 storey house in amazing location. Bright and modern interior with mega comfy beds. Car parking (often and issue in Ambleside) was really easy with two free car parking passes as prt of the package. Welcome crate of goodies was very appreciated too. Loved it and would definitely boom to stay again.

This is an amazing house in a fabulous location convenient for all the shops, pubs and restaurants. Parking was easy with the permit provided. There were so many thoughtful touches like the welcome box and the house is really well equipped. The bath is amazing and the bed so comfortable. The house was warm and cozy and felt really luxurious. Thank you for making it a special location for celebrating a big birthday. Highly recommend and will definitely be back.

We have just returned home from Tethera, what a beautiful place!! Thank you so much Lakeland Retreats for a wonderful week! A great company, great communication and a lovely welcome pack! The house was just perfect for us in every way! It’s location is ideal, we were able to park across the street (using the parking passes provided) and not use them till home time. Everything is within walking distance-pubs, shops, the lake and local transport. The house was spacious and beautifully finished, enough space for our family of 6 adults and one new born baby. With the added addition of the side entrance with a slope was IDEAL for getting our pram in and out! We have visited Ambleside many times but this was by far our best stay and we will definitely be returning to Tethera!
On Wednesday, 10 Nov 2021
Perfect home from home in the perfect spot. Couldn’t ask for anything more. We will definitely be back.
On Sunday, 10 Oct 2021
What a lovely stay we had here at Tethera.. it was immaculate and so nicely refurbed. We had a lovely welcome basket which we put to good use Myself and my friends would definitely recommend you stay here, this was our return visit to one Lakeland Retreats cottages

Brilliant house for enjoying Ambleside. Was perfect for 4 of us for weekend. Well equipped, loved the living area with fire - needed that as weather was terrible all weekend! Super comfy beds. Parking worked out fine for us. Recommend and definitely hope to return
On Sunday, 26 Sep 2021
This cottage was perfect. Location wise, was right in the middle of Ambleside with easy access to shops, cafes, restaurants and walks. The cottage itself was clean and comfortable and the parking permits for the car park were especially useful as we had travelled a long way up. We would all happily revisit in future.
On Thursday, 15 Jul 2021
The house is gorgeous from top to bottom. We were blown away when we arrived and saw all the work that has been done. Every room is so nice. It really was the perfect place for us to stay, being in such a convenient location and so nice and practical. All the arrangements around the booking were also perfect. I'd have no hesitation in booking again and recommending to others.

This is a fantastic house that is really well equipped right in the centre of Ambleside. A really great place to stay.

Just wanted to say Thankyou for a lovely week @ Tethera, we’ve had a really lovely time. We have enjoyed many holidays in Ambleside but we would have to say this was probably the best. We felt reassured and comfortable using your holiday letting company, from the communication via emails to the high standard of cleanliness in the cottage. It was just the break we needed following coronavirus, Thankyou so much!Hopefully see you again next year

Such an amazing house. The pictures really dont do it justice. Had such a lovely weekend in Ambleside staying in the best kitted out self catering accommodation I've ever stayed in. Everything you need, just like home, even down to a little pint of milk in the fridge :) Lakeland retreats are a brilliant company to book through and made everything very easy. Can't wait to come back :)
