Courtyard Hideaway is a delightful cottage in the small hamlet of Clappersgate less than a mile from the town of Ambleside. Set in the Clappersgate courtyard which was once the farm buildings for the Croft manor house which still stands behind the cottage.

The cottage is open plan throughout, is tastefully decorated and beautifully presented to a quality standard. Guests also have the use of a shared riverside garden just over the road with a seating area.

On entering the property you can see that a lot of thought has gone into the layout, the open kitchen, bedroom and living area has everything you need for a comfortable stay. A king size bed and sofa provide a lovely area to relax around the wood burner to plan your day's activities. The smart TV marries the old and the new with exposed oak beams and Velux windows, there is a real sense of space.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with all that you will require, including a dishwasher, freezer and a washing machine. A small breakfast bar and seating divides the space from the living area.

Just off the living area and up a few steps is the fantastic bathroom, finished in a contemporary manner with marble tiles from floor to ceiling, there is a large walk-in shower and a backlit anti-fog mirror.

Adding an extra touch of luxury there is underfloor heating throughout the property, very handy to keep those feet warm and cosy.

Less than a mile away is the bustling market town of Ambleside which has a large selection of restaurants, bars and shops and is easily accessible by a paved footpath along the river. Here you can also catch one of the ferries and truly explore Lake Windermere.

If you fancy a spot of walking the cottage is nestled just below Loughrigg Fell, providing magnificent walks with stunning vistas over the national park.

Courtyard Hideaway is the perfect property for a couple to relax and explore the Lake District national park.

WIFI is included throughout the property.

Parking for one car is directly outside the property.

NB: Although the property is on one level there are 2 steps up to the bathroom. Short Breaks - Short breaks can be taken but please contact the office for more details. Logs for the wood burner are not provided, but can be purchased locally.


Although a small holiday rental, this has everything you need. We visited in October and loved the underfloor heating which meant it felt warm and cosy even on days when we had been out in the rain. Easily walkable distance to Ambleside with all its amentities.
