Much more than home from home
Located within a 10 minute walk from Ambleside, this beautiful cottage has everything you could need for a relaxing and stress free holiday. All mod cons including a wine cooler and underfloor heating in the bathroom. Beds are very comfortable and the inglenook in the living area gives a cosy atmosphere at night. Location makes it very easy to take advantage of the beautiful walks around and about. Lake Windermere is also within walking distance (20 minutes). There are many cafes and restaurants around too.

The property is absolutely perfect. Every detail is of a very high standard indeed. Lots of nice touches to make your stay easy, comfortable and relaxing. The property is well placed in the Lakes and we will definitely be returning.
Mr Grundy

The property was fantastic. It is located in a great location with easy access to attractions. The flat itself was great all that we needed and more. It was very clean and tidy. The appliances and kitchen wear was of a very high standard and finishing throughout the property was again to a high standard.
Mrs Mcwhirter

A well finished and equipped, clean cottage in a great location in easy reach of many National Trust locations.
Mr Booker

This great, newly renovated The Old Laundry is in a great location. Plenty of space within the property to use and relax with everything we needed supplied. We will definitely recommend to others.
