Up a steep staircase to two bedrooms - sleeping a maximum of 4 people. The front bedroom with double bed and back bedroom with twin beds. (please note that with 4 adults space is a little restricted though the costs are the same so will suit those looking for a budget break). A recently refurbished modern bathroom with walk-in shower but no bath and gas central heating. With 4 guests the size of the lounge and dining areas is quite restricted, although those looking for a bargain break will benefit from the reasonable pricing structure. Outdoor seating to the front of the cottage, for those warmer evenings where you can enjoy a well deserved glass of something after your days exploring or to the rear there is an enclosed grassed yard at the back - ideal for a summer barbecue (shared with other residents from Blue Hill). There is an outside old privvy - great for storing bikes and muddy boots as well as an off road parking space towards the front of the property, With the village and the fells so close-by you can abandon the car for the duration if you so wish. Now as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will have plenty to choose from when planning your days out here in the Lake District and Blue Hill Cottage is the perfect base to explore all this wonderful area has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you!- More

Interaction with guests
I live in Manchester so I am unlikely to see you during your stay though I have a trusted housekeeper who lives nearby whom you can contact in case of emergencies. There is a key safe on the front door so you can check in any time after 3pm on your day of arrival and plenty of information within the cottage with all you need for an enjoyable stay.

About the neighbourhood
Ambleside is central to the Lake District so most people are attracted by the proximity of the fells and lakes. But it has many other amenities not usually found in a rural location. There is an excellent cinema, tennis courts, bowling green plus a large number of pubs and restaurants ranging from budget to gourmet! Boat trips across Lake Windermere to Wray, Bowness and Lakeside can be taken from Waterhead Pier which is again a short stroll from the cottage.
Getting around
There is a very convenient and easy to use bus service to get you out and about. Along with boats which can be taken from Waterhead to visit other villages and areas.
