Just a stone’s throw from the beating heart of Ambleside! This popular and vibrant village is a brilliant location for your holiday, showcasing the very best of the Southern Lakes, and Stone’s Throw Cottage is tucked away on a pretty backstreet just a minute or two from the hub of the village. All of the famous attractions and many of the finest walking routes in the region await you here!
Excellent accommodation for eight people, Stone's Throw Cottage enjoys a superb central and level location, a stroll from the many cafes, restaurants, and, of course, superb outdoor-wear shops that bustling Ambleside offers. There is a vibrant night-life to be found here, and with the Fairfield Horseshoe, Loughrigg Fell and Wansfell among the hill-routes that run directly from the village, as well as Lake Windermere sprawling so beautifully to the south, there is just so much to see and do.
We certainly recommend a day trip out on the famous steamers, or a rowboat for the more adventurous. There is a cinema here, too, and a climbing wall, and abundant outdoor activities, guided or on your own. Meanwhile, Rothay Park, with picnicking potential and play areas, is close to your holiday home, and crucially you do not need to enter the town centre or cross any main roads to get to it, great news if you have children in your party!
Whether you are inside enjoying a mug of cocoa beside the wonderfully cosy wood-burner, or out on the terraced glazed balcony taking in the mountain views, Stone's Throw Cottage promises a supremely relaxing break from the day-to-day. Two reception rooms give space and privacy to your party, while the large range cooker and solid wood dining table keep your catering covered. The standard of fixtures and fittings is first-rate here, and warm pine and comfortable leather furnishings complement the wooden floors, while the sleek modernity of the kitchen and the bathroom suites give a contemporary polish. Views from your property encompass Loughrigg Fell and the Fairfield Horseshoe. The pretty garden offers a wooden bench for sitting out and taking the airs with a cup of tea, and there is a patio at the back of the house, too.
Stone's Throw Cottage is the perfect base for friends or family, and really is within easy reach of everything the Lakes has to offer!
