The reviews are true! Clare Cottage is a beautifully appointed, deceptively spacious property, centrally located in Ambleside, yet still feeling slightly secluded due to being on such a quiet street. The decor, quality of fittings and attention to detail is remarkably high for a rental...More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage could not be more centrally located yet the road is very quiet and away from the traffic. It's an ideal base for those who dont wish to venture far and for those who do.

If you wish to travel up by train to Windermere and get a bus from there to Ambleside, you dont need a car once at the cottage.
Getting around
Windermere is the nearest railway station.

The buses stop just 1 minute from the front door at a location adjacent to King Street Car park (which doubles as the market place on Wednesdays) and from there you can travel North to Grasmere and beyond to Keswick or south back to Windermere and on to Kendal.
Car not needed
