Stockdale Cottage description

This 200 year old, slate, end of terrace cottage has been completely renovated by the owners, John and Maggie. It has been in their family since 1987 when it was bought off the Dickinson family who owned most, if not all of the terrace. It is set in a lovely location, away from the main road but in very easy walking distance of the village. It is called Stockdale Cottage because it sits at one end of the Stockdale Thrust, a geological feature which runs all the way to another Stockdale Cottage in Longsleddale. At this end of the thrust you are only five minutes’ walk from Ambleside town centre, where there are great shops, cafes, pubs and the Tourist Information Centre. You are only 10 minutes’ walk from Lake Windermere and if you turn right outside the house, you are straight onto Wansfell or into Blue Hill woods, so called for the bluebells in spring. You could walk north towards Kirkstone and drop back into the village via the falls, or go up the hill or wander over to Jenkins Wood and Troutbeck for a pint at the local pub. Early in the morning you many see deer from the back bedroom.
