Sleeping five people in three bedrooms, this cottage in Ambleside is an ideal base for a romantic or family break.

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.


This is our 6th stay at this cottage. Great location for all the walking and very close to local pub!

An excellent holiday cottage, close to all local amenities and a drive away from fantastic walks

Great cottage in great location
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

Home away from home
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

The cottage was in a great location and very well kept and clean. A perfect base for our walking holiday and perfect to come back to.
