This charming 16th-century, beamed holiday cottage occupies a quiet position, yet stands only ½ mile from the heart of Ambleside – one of the more popular Lakeland locations. One of three, Oaks Farm Cottage has been carefully refurbished, retaining original character and featuring an 18th-century fireplace with log-burning stove – which provides a warm and cosy atmosphere during the cooler winter months. The secluded garden and terrace command views of the fells and make a perfect spot for dining al fresco.
Standing at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, amidst the astounding scenery of the Lake District National Park, Ambleside makes an ideal base for touring and exploring this magnificent area. The village itself dates back to Roman times – a long-deserted fort is situated close to the banks of the lake. In more recent times, Ambleside played its part in the Lancashire cotton industry. Mills were built on Stock Ghyll, which runs down from the fells close to the rear of the cottage – in fact the gentle sound of the waterfalls can be heard whilst in the garden. In the immediate vicinity there are many walks that take advantage of the wonderful flora, fauna and wildlife, most notably the famous Fairfield Horseshoe walk (which begins just yards from the doorstep). This area is ideal terrain for climbing, fell-running and mountain-biking, with a profusion of well-maintained National Trust paths, forests and pinnacles. For all its beauty, this area is perhaps most famous for its long history of poets; William Wordsworth’s house, in Cockermouth, is now a museum celebrating his life’s achievements, with Southey, Ruskin and Thomas de Quincey also residing in Cumbria at some point of their lives. Ambleside particularly benefits from a large number of good restaurants and friendly, character-filled inns, within a short walk of the holiday cottage. Shops 300 yards.

A spacious very comfortable well equipped holiday cottage. The location was perfect just a short 5 min walk into Ambleside town centre.
