Ambleside Cottage


‚ÄčLocated overlooking our lagoon at Windermere Marina Village our Ambleside Cottages are within close walking distance to Bowness village. 

The Cottages 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.
