    Nestled away down a quiet back street, Shambles Cottage is a traditional Lakeland slate fronted terraced cottage that has everything you need and just one minutes’ walk from the centre of Ambleside. There is a cosy leather suite in the living room and a sitting room with views over Loughrigg Fell for those who want peace and quiet, away from it all. The spacious well-equipped kitchen is perfect to dish up a hearty meal to be served on the magnificent polished wooden oval table. Shambles Cottage is in a quiet, secluded courtyard, a step away from one of Ambleside’s oldest streets ‘The Slack’, yet the town’s amenities are just yards away, with an abundance of shops, cafés and restaurants. With good public transport links it couldn’t be easier to forget the car and explore the area stress free. There are plenty of places to visit right on your doorstep, the famous Bridge House or a short walk to Stockghyll Falls are a must, whilst further afield there is beautiful Grasmere village, or catch one of the Windermere ferries from the nearby Waterhead terminal. For climbing and walking, you are surrounded by fells and mountains, just don’t forget your guide book and camera, your days will be filled! A stay at Shambles Cottage is a must if you would like to explore the Lake District National Park. Shop 200 yards, pub 500 yards and restaurant 25 yards.

    "For a family The Shambles has the lot including what I would describe as a no noise relax/read/ family get together and play old fashioned board games room. The bathroom has a wonderful bath that must be up there with the longest in the north of England and comes complete with all the little extras you would expect in a good hotel.Beds are comfy and the kitchen everything you need - except a cook!Was working on a difficult job in Ambleside but as soon as I opened the front door of the Shambles I felt time had slowed down and it was time to relax for the evening. Brilliant place to stay."

    "Had a lovely stay at Shambles cottage. The owner Jane could not have been more helpful. She also left us a lovely little welcome hamper which meant we had time to settle in before having to fo to shops. Would recommend it."

    "We had a great short break; we had bad luck with the weather, but a lovely stay in the very comfortable & well equipped cottage which, having 2 living rooms made it feel very spacious. Lots of games, good wifi reception so children happy.The owner was really helpful with the couple of queries we had.The only downside might be that the dedicated parking is a little walk away (not surprising really as the cottage is in centre of town), but if you're out all day, the overnight parking permit in town works really well. (And able to park outside cottage to load & unload)I'd love to go back, thank you"

    "Lovely cottage in the heart of Ambleside. The owners provide everything you could need for a pleasant stay."

    "We had a wonderful holiday and the welcome basket was very kind. It is a pleasant cottage in a great location but is in need of a little updating throughout. The fridges, freezers, extractors and toilets were quite noisy too. We would return but maybe after a little updating. Thank you"

    "Fantastic little cottage in the perfect location what can I say. Ideal for a small family or friends wanting a relaxing stay within easy reach of restaurants and family walks. The owners were very helpful with any queries and parking at the owners not too far away. Would definitely recommend a stay."
