Iveing Cottage New for 2018
Sleeps up to 16. We can accept bookings for smaller groups of 6 to 10. Please call our office to confirm the rate for this.
Iveing Cottage, formerly the Ambleside Backpackers, has undergone a complete refurbishment, and is now an excellent holiday let; ideal for large groups or families.
The property provides accommodation for up to 16 guests, across 5 main bedrooms which have a combination of doubles and twins and one single with a single day bed in one of the double room. The 6th bedroom provides additional accommodation for 6 guests in two singles and two bunk beds.
There is a fantastic functional kitchen, entered via a purpose built boot room with plenty of room to hang soggy coats and boots with drying facilities and a dehumidifier. There is also a large dining room with beautiful original features and a big living room with a wood-burning stove and plenty of room for everyone to sit and relax, this property has something for everyone.
Located at the centre of Old Lake Road, within easy walking distance to the centre of Ambleside and also close to Waterhead – perfect to head off in different directions to take in the best of the Lake District. My favourite walk from Ambleside is a hike up Wansfell for the most amazing views up towards Dunmail Raise in one directions or all the way down Windermere the other – the views on a good day are incredible.
The accommodation on the first and second floors provides roomy bedrooms – all at the front with fabulous views from the 1st floor. There is a generous number of showers and toilets including one rather nice shower room for anyone who likes something a bit more luxurious – the others are a little basic, but clean with plenty of space and hooks. Six showers in total and plentiful hot water, so no one will need to queue.
There is ample off-street parking for 3 cars, a small secluded outside sitting area, and also the parking area to the side can double as outside BBQ space
