About the property

Peacock Cottage sits just outside Ambleside in the small village hamlet of Outgate and can be well recognised from the beautifully well looked after topiary in the garden reflecting the cottage name.

There is a walk whichever way you turn from the cottage up to Tarn Howes, down to Hawkshead or back along the path to Ambleside where you will find a range of restaurants, bars and an award winning cinema Zefferellis.

A beautiful and well appointed cottage with everything we needed.
We were a group of 5 adults and one teenager. The cottage was warm and very well equipped. Michelle and Adam were so friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Nice to have a bottle of wine and shortbread as a welcoming gift. Thank you.
We ate at the pub next door on our first night and were very warmly welcomed. The food was usual pub grub but well prepared and not expensive. The cottage is brilliantly placed for walking and visiting tourist spots like Hill Top, Brantwood and Blackwell House, Hawkhead, Tarn Hows and Coniston without too much driving. It was great to have a well tended secluded garden. Even though it was only April, we were able to sit outside in the sun. We would highly recommend Peacock Cottage
Perfect for Families
A beautiful cottage a short drive from Hawkshead. Full of character and the Sauna is a really great feature. There's even a good selection of board games and DVDs for the evenings in. Highly recommended.
Charming cottage well equipped with all we could need
Lovely cottage and found Michelle very helpful, would love to return.
Had everything we could need to eat in and a pub next door as well as Hawkshead or the Drunken Duck about a mile away if you don't fancy cooking. Sauna was a welcome treat to warm our bones after a day in the cold!
On the downside, though this is nothing to do with the cottage, I found booking through Home Away a nightmare and will never book through them again! Save yourself the hassle and book direct.
Beautiful, stylish, spacious and well equipped cottage
The cottage was very well equipped and furnished. The sauna was enjoyed by the walkers especially! Having three toilets/bathrooms/showers was wonderful for six adults. The heating was very efficient and the whole cottage wonderfully warm. We also enjoyed the log burner in the lounge. The Outgate Inn was virtually next door and catered for our meat eater and vegan and vegetarian members of the party. There were walks and runs taken direct from the cottage. Ambleside and Hawkshead were easily accessible by car.
