When we bought the property we thought it would be a good investment, however it very quickly became so much more. Over the years it has provided a very welcome escape from a hectic work schedule, I always return home feeling utterly relaxed, chilled and ready to face anything. Lots of family & friends have been able to enjoy holidays here, we've spent many hours around the dinner table sharing special times and all eagerly await a return invitation.
Owner purchased this House in 1998
Why Owner chose South Lakeland District
If you are a Lakes lover, you will understand why we chose to buy in Ambleside. It is the centre of the hub. Offering all sorts of activities for different ages. We have never regretted the choice! And, made many happy memories.
What makes this House unique
within walking distance of the village, fells and transport links. Warm, cosy and amazing views from every window. Fabulous walks & restaurants right on the doorstep.

Terrific location love the views very comfortable place enjoyed every minute. Great spot!
Great spot! Fully stocked kitchen comfortable bed very clean and spacious bathroom relaxing tub love sitting by the window and enjoying the view
We have just returned from a great few days staying in this cottage. We found it comfortable, warm and cosy, spotlessly clean and well stocked. The view from the front window is just sublime.... We watched the morning mist dissolve as the sun came out over Loughrigg Fell, simply beautiful. An excellent location, an easy walk into Ambleside to sample the many restaurants and bars. Will recommend to friends.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bluehill cottage, it was comfortable, clean & the views were stunning, walks practically from the doorstep & great restaurants, we were even fortunate enough to have great weather, we certainly plan to return.
What a fabulous place in a great location
We had a great few days in this really delightful cottage. the views are amazing ... probably one of the best in Ambleside for a cottage in this location. We were about 5 minutes walk into the centre of Ambleside. We didn't need to use the car as everything we needed (included all the great walks that we did) were within easy reach. Ambleside is well 'stocked' with restaurants, pubs, shops and gorgeous scenery. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable ... it is someone's 'home' rather than a 'posh' let and we really enjoyed the informality and feeling at home. Would definitely return and I'm sure in the winter time it would be a lovely place to 'cosy' up in!
Kitchen let down
Cottage location was perfect with great views unfortunately let down by the state of the kitchen. On arrival we found oven and grill were greasy and hadn't been cleaned from previous occupancy. Electric toaster was also dirty and not usable. Top of microwave and cooker hood were also requiring cleaning. Dish towels left were clean but stained. New towels were provided the following day. Finally it took 3 reminders from me to the owners to have my deposit returned which eventually cleared 19 days after departure. We will not be returning to this cottage and therefore cannot recommend it.
Bluehill cottage exceeded our expectations, the cottage was spotlessly clean, fully equipped & had wifi, the views took my breath away, it was so nice to be able to access the walks from the doorstep yet be so close to the village, we have recommended the cottage to all our friends & will definitely return.
