Why Haven Cottage

Our Rooms

Each of our 3 bedrooms and 2 suites is individually decorated and designed in an eclectic style whilst retaining an intimate, homely feel. Each room has its own modern ensuite with power shower, large fluffy bath towels and luxury toiletries. Check out the room tab for room specific information.

Guest Areas

For those lucky enough to stay with us when it isn’t raining we have an external terrace with table, chairs, parasol etc for the use of our guests. Looking over to Loughrigg it’s a great spot to sit in the sun, kick back, and take in the views.

For everyone else we have a comfortable guest lounge with Sonos audio system, books and the obligatory log burner for those colder days when the sun chooses not to shine.


Parking can be tricky in Ambleside but not here.  We have five rooms and five on-site car spaces so you can park the car and forget it if you wish.


We are an easy three minute stroll to the centre of Ambleside with its various shops, restaurants and pubs and probably 15 minutes or so walk to Lake Windermere. Sitting between Wansfell and Loughrigg we are lucky enough to have some amazing views from our doorstep.


Served in our dining room and guest lounge with plenty of choice including fruit, yoghurt, cereals, the  obligatory full English, our own home made toast, tea, coffee, juice etc etc etc. All freshly cooked to order using best quality locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.


Of course. We have recently upgraded our broadband to a fibre based system and changed the routers to improve coverage around the house. This has greatly improved matters although occasionally we can be subject to the vagaries of the Cumbrian internet!

Drying room and secure bike storage

Naturally - we are in the Lakes!

Kids, Dogs, Stags & Hens
