About Keith and Helen Farrell

We live in a small village in Poynton Cheshire we have always loved Ambleside and the surrounding area and finally purchased Fellside that was old and was in desperate need of renovating. It is now fully renovated and is ideally situated within easy walking distance to all amenities yet still in a quiet and peaceful position.

Keith and Helen Farrell purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Keith and Helen Farrell chose Windermere & Central Lakes

If you enjoy a peaceful quiet location yet want also to be able stroll into the village and be amongst the many bars and restaurants this is ideal. From Fellside you can walk easily to the village and Ferry port (Lake side ) The cottage shares a court yard where you can enjoy the sunshine and the views of the Lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Due to its elevated position accessed by a small steep drive the views from the court yard and above the property are stunning this is one of the main reasons we bought the property. The bedroom and lounge have featured ceilings creating a pleasing cottage feeling.

Very smart and well decorated throughout make this an ideal holiday base near Ambleside.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very well equipped throughout. The accommodation is excellent with a well planned kitchen and ample eating area and a light and bright lounge. The bedrooms were well fitted, with very comfortable beds, and the ensuite bathrooms were clean and smart with good showers. The velux windows set high in the ceiling did mean that there was a lot of early morning light.

Fabulous property. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

LOVED the appointments in this snug 2 bedroom attached place! Light, bright and modern. Within walking distance to Ambleside. Comfortable and clean. Away from the noise of the main road. A path to Loughrigg Fell just a short distance away. The rest of our party stayed next door where they allowed the dogs. Keith and Helen were very responsive and nice to deal with. Will definitely be back! Thank you!!!

Luxury cottage

  • 5 of 5

Visited the Lake District in June for the first time. We stayed for a week at Fellside cottage which is situated approx 3/4 mile from Ambleside a lovely town with local shops and restaurants. Fellside is pure luxury with all modern and comfortable amenities. It is very spacious with the added bonus of en suite in each of the bedrooms. There is also a seperate toilet closer to the lounge which was very handy as the bedrooms are at the other end of the cottage.. I dont think I have ever slept in such a comfortable bed everything about it was luxurious.

The kitchen is well equiped as if in your own home with every modern appliances.

The lounge is very spacious and comfortable.

We met Keith and Helen on our 1st day who were very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely recommend Fellside cottage

A lovely quiet location with great amenities, a very large comfortable bed in the main room

A fantastic base for cycling and walking, the drive although very steep was treated as a test after returning from a days cycling

Would recommend this cottage very highly
