Property Details

Awarded 5 stars by Visit England in recognition of its excellent overall quality, this Ambleside Cottage in Cumbria cottage is prettily furnished and offers everything you will need for a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable break in the Lake District. Situated in the very centre of Ambleside, the cottage is tucked next to Smallwood House Hotel and accessed from the hotel?s private car park, with a dedicated parking space for the cottage.

While cosy and compact, the cottage covers two floors and comprises a well equipped kitchen/dining area (including dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster), a comfortable lounge with TV, DVD and video player, bathroom with shower and spa bath and one double bedroom. There is gas central heating throughout and an electric fire in the lounge, ideal for autumn and winter or even those cooler summer days. For that extra bit of luxury both the kitchen and the bathroom also have lovely, cosy under-floor heating independent of the central heating.

The cottage owners, Christine and Anthony Harrison, are on hand (next door at Smallwood House Hotel) to welcome you and to help you make the most of your stay if needed. Ambleside is a bustling and vibrant small market town offering a good selection of specialist shops and great quality restaurants, bars and cafes, so no need for cooking if you do not want to. Cuckoo?s Nest provides a perfect location for exploring the wider Lake District or enjoying low or high level walks right from the doorstep.

Guests at the Cuckoo?s Nest have use of the luxury spa and swimming pool at a hotel just a few minutes walk away. Secure cycle storage is available if you would like to bring your own bicycle. There is complimentary Wi-Fi and all prices include gas, electricity, towels and bed linen.
