Ambleside self-catering accommodation rarely comes in a more picturesque setting. Stableman's Cottage, set up perfectly for self catering, is situated within part of the historic country house of Stepping Stones, once owned by William Wordsworth's son. The house overlooks the famous stepping stones across the River Rothay at the foot of Loughrigg fell surrounded by beautiful countryside. This lovely location is amazingly within walking distance of the bustling village of Ambleside, a short drive to Grasmere and the popular tourist villages of Bowness and Windermere. Also a short stroll away is the hamlet of Rydal where there is a local pub and tea rooms. Combining characteristic features of exposed beams and vaulted ceilings with tasteful comfortable interiors and modern appliances, the cottage is well-equipped for self-catering and the perfect base in which to explore the Lake District. Having 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms, the cottage layout is ideal for families (suitable for children from age 5+), groups of friends or two couples wishing to have separate private bathroom/shower facilities. Stableman's offers a lovely private 'home from home' and is an ideal Lakeland retreat …. comfortable accommodation, stunning views, fantastic walks straight from the door, an abundance of local wildlife, a myriad of local eateries, well located for visiting tourist attractions …. and much much more. Our weekly changeover day is Friday although out of the main season we offer weekend and short breaks. We are officially rated 4* by Visit England and have experience of letting out our holiday home for many years with excellent reviews.
