Pretty Big Cottage, Ambleside

Oakdene House is a large detached property built in the early 1970's. Situated in the centre of Chapel Stile, just a stones throw from the local Coop Store and the Wainwrights Inn pub. The house was extended and split into two properties some time in the 80's, the larger half sleeping 8 being named Oakdene House and the smaller part sleeping 6 now named Oakdene Cottage.

The entrance into Oakdene House is through a porch area, with room for muddy boots and walking gear. The ground floor is mostly open plan with a large lounge, dining and kitchen area. The lounge has a view towards the front of the house, seating for 8, TV including a full Sky and BT Sports package, blu ray player and docking station, plus gas fire for those cold winter evenings. The dining area has an Oak table and chairs suitable for 8 guests. The table also opens out to seat 14 if both the house and the cottage are booked by the same group, perfect for family get togethers! There are doors leading to the patio and garden where you will find a table and chairs. The kitchen is modern and has an electric hob, double oven, dishwasher and American style fridge freezer.

The ground floor also has a utility room with washer and seperate dryer, separate shower room with shower, toilet and basin.

On the first floor are 4 bedrooms. The master double bedroom has a king size bed, drawers and a wardrobe and ensuite shower room comprising of a large shower, toilet and sink. The second double bedroom has king size bed, built in-wardrobe and drawers, the twin room has views over the garden, two standard size single beds, wardrobe and drawers and the fourth bedroom is a bunk bedded room with full size bunks, hanging rail and drawers. Also on the first floor is the main family bathroom which has a bath with shower over, toilet and sink.

The house has a good sized garden to the rear and side with well established plants and trees and large grassed area perfect for family games, and a patio seating area for your summer barbecue. There is parking at the front for 2 to 3 cars in a private gated driveway.

Oakdene House is perfectly situated in the centre of Chapel Stile, very close to both the shop and Wainwrights Inn. Walking from the door in all directions, you really don't need to use the car if you don't want to.

What's included?

We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.

LocationAmbleside

Known as one the best towns to use as a base for exploring the Lake District, Ambleside is located on the edge of Windermere, England’s largest natural lake making this region a favourite with water sports enthusiasts and walkers. As a gateway to Scotland, this area has several interesting Roman fortresses to visit, such as Galava, Ravenglass and Hard Knott Fort.

The Lake Windermere ferry is a convenient service for crossing the shores and exploring the area, with cruises and boat hire available. A popular local attraction is Hill Top, the farmhouse owned by Beatrix Potter which is worth a visit for fans of the author. An iconic building of Ambleside is the tiny Bridge House over Stock Breck, and a short walk from the town is Stock Ghyll Force where there is a safe railed off point to view the impressive 70 foot waterfall.

Wray Castle is a great family day out, with dressing up for children and lots of outdoor space with play equipment. Grizedale Forest has numerous walking and cycling trails with a Go Ape tree top obstacle course on site. The Armitt Museum houses a gallery and collection of museum exhibitions. Open to the public, Dove Cottage was the family home of William Wordsworth and guided tours are available of the small museum and gardens. Also in the area is Rydal Mount House with portraits and memorabilia of the poets work.

Cumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
