The Cuckoo's Nest, a little gem of a cottage

Visited by Tripadvisor
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England
A delightful cottage right in the centre of Ambleside. A few minutes walk takes you to all the amenities of the town and surrounding area.
Inside is a fully fitted kitchen, stairs to the living area take you to the lounge, bathroom with shower & spa bath and bedroom. Perfect for relaxation.
Ambleside is so convenient for enjoying the fells as a walker or for more gentle sightseeing. The bus stop is just around the corner so if you dont have a car you can still enjoy the area just as easily.
Included is use of a nearby spa with swimming pool and gym so dont forget to bring your costume and swimming towel

About the neighbourhood
As the Cuckoo's nest is in the centre of Ambleside you will find that all the attractions of our wonderful town are right on your doorstep. There are many top class restaurants here, daytime cafes and eateries. The cinema is just a walk across the road with all the latest films.
A 15-20 minute walk in either direction will bring you to the Windermere or Rydal water. Windermere has plenty of activities, to keep you busy. Rydal water has more to allow you to relax and enjoy the calm & peace.
The town is surrounded by walks, taking you along or around water, or up the fells.
Not far away are some of the homes of William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Samuel Coleridge, Dequincey & John Ruskin.
So much to do, will you have enough time to do?
Getting around
Most of the bus routes pass through Ambleside, which means that there is mostly a bus going to where you want to be at some time during the day. In the winter there are not quite so many.
