Woodbine Cottage description

Holiday home
Woodbine Cottage is a lovely semi-detached cottage in Ambleside. There is a king-size double with en-suite shower room, a double and a bunks room, along with a family bathroom and an additional ground floor cloakroom. Outside is a terrace with views over the town, and a permit is provided for one car for a local car park. With Lake Windermere on the doorstep, and the amenities of the town a moment away, Woodbine Cottage makes a welcoming and convenient base for a break, all year round.

Area
Given its excellent position at the northern tip of Lake Windermere - England's largest lake - Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes. The town itself is famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th Century "Bridge House" - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Grasmere and the Langdale Valley are just a short drive away and there is plenty to do here. With cruises, boat trips and water-sports on Lake Windermere itself as well as numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village, visitors will be spoiled for choice. At Waterhead lakeside there is a short stretch of beach for sunbathing, or paddling, whilst in the opposite direction, along a short woodland walk, is the beautiful waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force.

Region
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

A warm, cosy cottage in the middle of Ambleside, close to shops and an excellent base for walking. Great views, especially from the main bedroom. This was our second visit and we hope to return.

Very nice cottage, warmly appreciated by the whole family. We liked the kitchen, the two bathrooms and three toilets and especially the absolute tranquillity given through the little street in which the cottage is located. Nevertheless all shopping possibilities in the nearest surroundings, parking with the permit no problem and very near the cottage . Ambleside is nice and ideal as a starting point for all kind of activities. Thank you for wonderful holidays.

The beds were particularly comfortable, couldn't get out of them in the morning! Overall a great cottage! So close to the centre of Ambleside, especially our favourite pub, the Unicorn Inn!

We spent a wonderful week in this warm, welcoming house. The kitchen was well equipped, the house was comfortable and has been very well renovated, smart kitchen and bathrooms. The location is excellent, just minutes from the centre of Ambleside and a great starting place for walks from the door without needing the car. The view from the main bedroom is fantastic!

The location of the cottage in Ambleside was ideal as a touring base and convenient for cafes, bars, restaurants and shops without using the car. The shopkeepers and staff in the cafes and bars were very friendly and welcoming.

We had a wonderful stay, despite the weather. Lovely to have such a fantastic cottage to come back to and dry out. We love the Lakes, and always come prepared so there were no issues during our stay.

We loved the location of the property and the views. It was nicely decorated too. Lots of hot water and the heating was good and it felt cosy when it was so cold outside. We liked that the key was waiting at the property as we arrived late in the evening.

The cottage was like 'home from home'. We felt really comfortable straight away! It's set near to the town centre which had everything you needed. The scenery from the bedroom window is out of this world! Beds are comfortable and the standards are very high. Would definitely return!

The location of the cottage couldn't be better. Peaceful with great views, but only a stones throw from town. Plenty of space for our party of 3 adults and 4 children ranging from 18 months to 8 years. Great quality fixtures and fittings. Very comfortable beds and sofas with abundant cushions. Highchair and travel cot provided.

I loved everything about this property, as soon as I walked in the front door. The quality of the whole furnishings and fixtures were second to none. Everything was spotless and the beds were so comfy. The location was absolutely perfect. A stones throw away from the hub of the village, where there is everything you can ask for.

The cottage was lovely and the location perfect. It was modern and bright and decorated to a very good standard and I particularly liked the soft and fluffy bedding, just like at home.

The property was situated in a fantastic location. The fittings and furnishings were second to none and the overall value for money was very good! Upon entering the property we were presented with a warm cosy feeling with the most modern appliances. The bedrooms were fantastic with probably the most comfortable bed I've slept in! I will most certainly be staying again and will recommend to friends and family.

We've just returned from a 4 night break at Woodbine cottage and couldn't fault it in anyway. Five of us stayed in total (4 adults + 1 child) and it was a perfect size for us. The kitchen and living room are a great size as well as being comfortable and well equipped. Everything was clean and tidy, beds comfortable, good decor, high quality fittings in bathrooms and amazing views from master bedroom. Shops are a quick walk away but we were left biscuits, tea, coffee and milk by the owners which was a lovely touch. As well as shops being a few minutes away you also have 2 pubs and a butchers literally a stones throw away - the butchers in particular is great so make sure you do a big fry up at least once with bacon, sausages, black pudding and eggs all from the butchers ( getting hungry now!). There isn't a parking space by the cottage but you have a very narrow road outside the cottage which was fine for loading / unloading the car ( it is narrow with stone walls either side but a ford mondeo with wing mirrors folded in fitted through fine). You also get a parking permit which we picked up from Sykes in Windermere on the way and this works out really well as there is a car park about 50 metres away from the cottage that this enables you to use as well as multiple other car parks across all of the lake districts so if you're travelling about this can save you a small fortune in pay and display charges! Highly recommended and we'd definitely return

We stayed in this cottage for 7 nights. it is well located just 2-3 minuts walk from the center of ambleside but still in a quiet area. the cottage have 3 bed rooms at the upper floor, two with a twin bed and one with a bunk bed. the ground floor have nice sitting area and kitchen.. there is nice fireplace. the cottage is well equipped and maintened. the only minuses that we found was the fact that the cottage dont have privete parking (parking tag in the main parking lot is supplied by the owener) and there is no free wifi. we are highly recommending this cottage

Myself and my family stayed at Woodbine cottage for a week and i must say it was totally perfect. As soon as i walked through the front door, i fell in love with the place..it has such a warm welcoming feel to it. the whole house has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard, fixtures and fittings were of the highest quality, even down to the utensils/ cutlery etc. The beds are sooo comfy...i can go on and on about the quality, it was just amazing. The location also is perfect, it is literally two minutes walk into the beautiful village of ambleside, where you are spoilt for choice on tearooms, restaurants, shops and pubs..it was great to have a few vinos without having to worry about driving home!! My favourite thing was wakening up to the beautiful view from my bedroom window!

we really enjoyed our time at woodbine cottage.It is centrally located, two minutes to the nearest pub! it is cosy especially with the log burner going in winter.The cottage has modern decoration and is comfortable. I would definately book again, the sykes agents was friendly and helpful.The only down side was the parking, it was a gamble whether there was space available by the cottage and ambleside has car parks but they can be expensive.Still that said, will still go back again and again.great walking and beautiful countryside any season.
