The Neighborhood

This secluded retreat near lovely little Rydal Water boasts strong connections with the poet William Wordsworth, who was inspired by the stunning surroundings. The poet's favourite viewpoint can be reached on the western end of the lake the tranquil surroundings are truly inspirational! There are many walks, the difficulty ranging, direct from the house. The cottage is only a short distance from Ambleside where you’ll find a range of local shops, chances to eat at traditional pubs as well as amazing restaurants. For kids you’ll even find a cinema! And for the adults a live music bar. Additionally, Lake Windermere is a spectacular place to spend the day, watching the boats and having picnics. Ferries leave regularly to the nearby villages of Bowness and Lakeside which all boast their own beautiful sights and activities.

Let’s try that again.
