Wansfell Cottage, in the very heart of Ambleside, presents as a rather typical Lakeland stone cottage from the exterior yet, once over the threshold, offers a contemporary designed interior that flows beautifully throughout, blending effortlessly with original and traditional features such as local slate flooring and a stunning feature wall, exposed during the recent refurbishment and now home to the grand wood burning stove that sits on its hearth. The modern colour scheme is beautifully married with perfectly chosen soft furnishings and accessories in each of the rooms and great thought has been taken to provide stylish yet practical bath and shower rooms and fully fitted kitchen.
A very comfortable and convenient base, Wansfell Cottage has a host of excellent restaurants, shops and bars all within minutes walk from the property. Ambleside has a wealth of attractions for wet or dry weather, pitch and put, mini golf and the new indoor climbing wall giving holidaymakers from the age of 5 upwards the chance to experience rock climbing in a supervised environment.

Great location in the centre of Ambleside with many facilities and near to other places. Cottage was clean, spacious and comfortable with all the facilities you could need. Beds were comfortable and clean, rooms tastefully decorated. Great having 2 bathroom, nice deep bath and powerful shower. Internet strangely stopped working on our phones but continued on our lap tops. Tele had regular channels only. Kitchen great, well equipped including washing machine. We parked in local car park approximately 5-10 mins walk away, disc was provided, this was fine. Very limited parking in front of house, usually taken, I think we only got to park outside once, but for us that was okay.

Great cottage, great location, just a couple of niggles, no batteries in radio remote control, batteries flat in TV remote and bath side panel not fitted properly ( we all caught our toes on it through the week) and bath towels a little small. Cottage itself, warm and cosy and had all we needed for the week. Would definitely recommend as great location and although central in Ambleside very quiet at night.
