Ambleside Cottage


Located overlooking our lagoon at Windermere Marina Village, our Ambleside Holiday Cottages are within close walking distance to Bowness village and are family and small group friendly as a 5-person holiday cottage.

These luxury self-catering cottages in the Lake District have been carefully decorated and furnished to offer a relaxing escape. Built in traditional Lakeland slate, the cottages offer that "Lakeland character" combined with modern quality furnishings.  

Our Ambleside holiday cottages sleep up to 5 guests and are family friendly. We have two of these cottages at Windermere Marina Village that both have two bedrooms set on the ground floor, a single and a double room with king-sized bed. The first floor offers upside down living with a sizable open plan lounge and kitchen area.  A private balcony area leads from the top floor lounge which can be accessed via patio doors.
