Mr Harvison’s Ref: CC123100
Don’t be fooled by the rather plain exterior of this traditional mid terraced cottage, built in the 1700’s as awaiting your arrival behind the front door lies a beautiful, boutique style self catering home from home, the perfect venue for your holiday in the Lakes. A hop, skip and jump from the village, with two excellent village pubs on your doorstep.

The open plan living area is ideal for a casual and social dinner although with so many great places to eat in Ambleside, Lucy’s, The Glass House and The Log House to name but three, we wonder whether the super facilities on offer here will actually be used to their full advantage? A small terrace to the rear of the cottage is just the spot for an aperitif before dinner or for taking in a breath of fresh Lakeland air when our weather will allow whilst cooler evenings will no doubt be spent recalling the day’s events and planning the next.
