North Cottage is a lovely, cosy cottage with a good central location. It is up a number of steps which gives it an elevated view over the town and out to the hills. Perfect for walking from Ambleside and enjoying the busy little town.

Very nice cottage in a central location. Would have liked a little more privacy when sitting outside as more of the area was shared than we expected. Car park was extremely busy so finding a space in the afternoon often took a while.
