    About this property

    Situated in the picturesque Lake District National Park and ideal for guests who enjoy walking, cycling and water sports.
    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.

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Shambles Cottage. If there was to be a criticism it wold be the distance to park the car. Having said that we only had the final morning which was wet and we had parked in town, using the parking permit kindly left in the cottage by the owners."

    "good location with all amenities"
    Tony ‐ 29 May 2018
    "If you are in the bedroom facing the restaurant you will need ear plugs from the constant drone of the kitchen extractor. The shower needs updating to an electric one as there is hardly any pressure coming from the taps. Very central though, right in the heart of Ambleside."
    Amanda ‐ 25 May 2018
    "Great location! Comfy beds and clean throughout! Great wifi"
    Hazel ‐ 21 Apr 2018

    Joanna ‐ 4 Apr 2018
    "Great cottage. Spotless with really lovely bedding. We were making soup and couldn’t find a blender so rang the owner to check we were not missing it and she was there within minutes with a blender. What a service!"
