At the foot of Kirkstone Pass and in a beautiful conservation area above the bustling village of Ambleside, 2 Edinboro is perfectly placed for walkers wishing to get on their boots and get right onto the fells. Direct access from the door of this Lakeland cottage leads to the slopes of Wansfell and her surrounding fell range, the village itself a manageable walk downhill of around 10 minutes. But you don't have to be a walker to holiday here at 2 Edinboro. Ambleside has so much to offer the first time or returning guest that a week may not be enough. Every activity you can think of is on hand, be it walking, cycling and sailing and for those who prefer the more leisurely pursuits of eating, drinking and shopping, the village has an abundance of pubs, restaurants and a wide selection of interesting gift and outdoor shops.
2 Edinboro is a delightful characterful cottage blessed with all the essential ingredients for a Lakeland holiday that our guests have come to expect. The wood burning stove sits proudly as the main focal point in the living area, the floors dressed with local slate and the exposed beams and stripped pine all adding to the cottage ambience. A small patio to the front of the cottage is perfectly placed for enjoying the Lakeland air, if not the weather and blessed with two parking spaces, there really is little need to use the car all week

About the local area

Located right in the centre of the Lake District at the head of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is surrounded by beautiful scenery. This bustling, busy market town offers visitors numerous shops, cosy pubs and plenty of places to eat out.

Ambleside has easy access to the surrounding fells and mountains and is an excellent base from which to tour the Lake District. A short walk from the town centre is Stock Ghyll Force, a spectacular 70ft waterfall and to the southeast is Jenkins Crag (730ft), with its great views of Ambleside and the surrounding hills. Well worth a visit is Stagshaw Garden, a woodland garden with lovely floral displays set on a steep hillside overlooking Lake Windermere. From the garden walks lead through Skelghyll Woods to the fells beyond.

For the less energetic, there are strolls along the shore of Lake Windermere, boat trips down the lake and back, or maybe just potter around the many outdoor shops, craft shops and galleries before a good pub lunch.
