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.

What our customers say about Brock's Nest - 9 Badgers Rake

V Smales -

Lovely place, great views, nice to have access to a washing machine & dryer,


G H Clarke -

Clean, accessible and comfortable.


Sarah Young -

A lovely spacious apartment, very nicely decorated and laid out with beautiful views. It was ideal for our party of two couples. Use of the garage was a much appreciated plus point for us. Slight disappointment with regards to a couple of cleaning issues which have been reported separately by email, but not enough to prevent us using Cumbrian Cottages again and would choose to stay at the same property if available.


Found it to be very satisfactory and would be happy to book this again.


D E Ridgley -

We had a great time have used Cumbrian cottages before and will so again, thank you.
