Holly Howe Cottage, Ambleside, Cumbria, The Lake District
Holly How Cottage is a beautifully appointed self catering holiday home that is located in a quiet part of Cumbria, overlooking Ambleside. Our holiday home is only a 3 minute walk from the centre of Ambleside and is a great base from which to explore the Lake District National Park.
Our holiday cottage is a cosy retreat that has been carefully restored and furnished to provide a comfortable base from which to explore The Lake District. This mid Victorian terraced house has a modern kitchen and cosy living room with living flame gas fire, TV, YouView box and a Blu-ray DVD player. Behind is the dining room with fitted china cabinet, pine table and chairs and a gas-burning Jotul 'coal' stove.
All of the bedrooms are upstairs and the holiday home can accommodate up to 6 people. The first floor bedroom has a king size bed and on the second floor is a double and a twin bedroom.
The holiday cottage has a cellar where you will find a freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and the original stone sink where you can wash your muddy boots. There is also plenty of space to hang wet outdoor clothing.
Outside of the holiday home is a back garden where you can enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding area. There is a terrace with benches and a summer house that has a small folding table and chairs.
Ambleside is surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. It is one of the very few places where traditional Cumbrian sports are held in the summer. Also in the summer there is still the annual rush-bearing procession and service and at the end of November the crowds gather to see the lantern procession which culminates in the lighting of the Christmas lights. Ambleside is a very convenient centre from which to travel around the Lake District. There is information provided in the cottage so that guests will be able to plan activities according to the time of year and the weather. For those who cannot walk very high or far there is still a great variety of magnificent countryside to enjoy.
