    In the very heart of popular Ambleside sits Monreith, a recently renovated stone built cottage, beautifully prepared to very high standard for our self catering guests. The central location will appeal to those walkers among you who yearn to get straight out onto the fells, with your dog who is welcome to join you here at Monreith, Whilst those who prefer a gentle potter around this mainly level village, down to the lake shore or around the shops will still find plenty to keep you entertained, by day and by night.
    Monreith is delightful, presented in a traditional style but with 21st century facilities, the perfect combination. The original flagged and stripped floorboards remind you that this property is well over 100 years old, whilst the newly installed wood burning stove creates a real focal point in the dining room yet looks and feels like it’s always taken pride of place. The sumptuous fully tiled bathroom really does have the wow factor and is THE perfect pamper room for lovely long soak in the roll top tub after a hard day on the fells.

    Entrance Hall: With plenty of hanging space.
    Lounge: With gas fireplace, TV, DVD and comfy seating.
