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.

Modern and great location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is ideally situated to walk into Ambleside and to visit the attractions of the lake district. The cottage is modern with all that is required for a comfortable stay. If I had one wish it would be for a bath after a long walk, but all rooms were en suite with showers.

Such a lovely cottage : )

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and we would definitely stay again. It was tastefully decorated and very homely. It had a good mix of traditional cottage style with high ceilings with beams and log burner, but lovely modern big spacious kitchen dining room. The beds were very comfy as well as the sofas. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. The kitchen was well equipped. We made use of the slow cooker. The owners were very help too when I needed directions to get to the cottage. The location is very good. Quite central to travel to other parts of the Lake District.

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!!!
