Hawthorn Cottage Ambleside

Luxury staycation by the Lake

Hawthorn Cottage is a Four Star Gold holiday cottage ideally located just yards from the picturesque shore of Lake Windermere and a short level walk to the centre of Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District.


Totally refurbished, Hawthorn Cottage offers the perfect blend of traditional Lakeland charm with a chic contemporary style providing the ideal holiday home to relax or use as a base from which to explore.


The modern open-plan living area and fully integrated kitchen of Hawthorn Cottage are complimented by a bright, airy feel with designer touches and complimentary furnishings which aid relaxation. Two stylish bedrooms – one king size and one double – and luxurious bathroom help provide the perfect holiday retreat.


Nestling just 50 metres from the shore of England's largest lake at Waterhead with its passenger ferry service and tempting cafes, pub and restaurants close by, Hawthorn Cottage also affords abundant walks from the doorstep.


Please note Hawthorn Cottage is strictly available to non-smokers only. Children over the age of eight years are welcome. We regret we cannot accommodate pets.








Located just yards from the Lake at Waterhead

Waterhead, at the northern end of Lake Windermere, is a picture-postcard  bay which has changed little over the decades and provides the ideal walking and touring base for those wishing to stay in the heart of the Lake District at Ambleside.


Hawthorn Cottage lies just 50 metres from the waters edge and lake ferry terminus of Windermere Lake Cruises which operate regular passenger services around the lake. The immediate area is served by a number of delightful cafes and tea shops as well as a refurbished pub and boutique hotel both serving excellent meals.


Simply sit, relax and enjoy taking in the view across the bay to the Langdales or you may be tempted onto the water by hiring a rowing boat or kayak.


For those looking to explore the area on foot there are numerous walks for all levels of ability directly from the door of Hawthorn Cottage. Wansfell approach, which is directly opposite, offers a pleasant return round trek to the summit of the fell overlooking

Ambleside village, while Loughrigg Fell which links Ambleside with Rydal Water and Grasmere is within easy reach.

"We have always found Hawthorn Cottage to be a clean and comfortable cottage which is ideally located and enjoy returning year after year."
