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.

The place felt like home imediately. We shared some beautiful moments and thaks to the wife, some beautiful home cooked meals. The showers were first class, just what was needed after a day of exploring. The property waa in excelent condition and the owners were easy to het along with and always abailable to help and advise. A big thank you to the owners and to the lakes for a break that was memorable for all the right reasons.

Clean spacious and very comfortable, a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent 5 days in the cottage and on arrival were immediately impressed with the standard of furnishings and the modern open feel and look of the accommodation. All the rooms were of a good size and were very comfortable. Two days confined to the cottage because of heavy rain did nothing to impair our feeling of comfort and relaxation. A minor problem with the plumbing was resolved satisfactorily with Keith making arrangements for a plumber to call the same day. The property was well placed for a short walk into Ambleside and For exploring other parts of the Lake District. We would definitely stay again and will recommend it to friends looking to visit the area

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.
