Cosy cottage close to Ambleside

The Old Dairy is located in a quiet courtyard next to the Croft, close to Ambleside.


A short walk from Ambleside, The Old Dairy is a perfect base from which to explore South Lakes. Dating back to 1830 and originally the old dairy to the former neighbouring manor ‘The Croft’, this one bedroom property has been beautifully renovated and continually updated by the owners. It retains a lot of original features including the hayloft which is now a snug sitting area above the main living room.


From the courtyard, with convenient parking right outside, you enter the hallway with space for boots and coats. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need including a washer/dryer, fridge with ice compartment and a view over the cobbled courtyard at the front. The shower room has a spacious walk-in shower, sink and WC, under floor heating and heated towel rail. The pretty double bedroom is very romantic with a high ceiling, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The living-dining room has a solid wood floor, leather sofa, separate chair, flat screen TV with DVD player and electric fire inset and looks out over the courtyard.  There is also a dining table and chairs to one side.  Above the living room is the old hayloft, with a reclining armchair next to the window providing a delightful space to relax and read.


The Old Dairy has its own slate bench overlooking the courtyard and guests can also enjoy the shared riverside garden just across the road with seating overlooking the river.

The Old Dairy is located in a courtyard and the parking space is only suitable for cars, we are unable to allow large vans or motor homes to park.
