    The cottage was very clean and tidy,with everything you need for self-catering stay.It was surprisingly spacious with lovely welcome gift of home made scones.
    Ideally located in centre of Ambleside with shops,pubs,restaurants,takeaways and cinema all within 2 minutes walk.
    Lake Windermere only 1 mile away and lovely walks available starting in Ambleside.
