The holiday cottage at Number One Skelwith Fold Cottages is a perfect location for your dream getaway in the Lake District. It is situated in an unbeatable location on the outskirts of Ambleside and boasts magnificent views of the surrounding fells. The house is cosy and comfortable with ample space to socialise and spend quality family time together. It’s conveniently placed for exploring some of Cumbria’s best loved towns and villages, including Windermere and Hawkshead.
3 bedroom self catering cottage
The cottage sleeps up to six people across two double bedrooms and a twin room. The master bedroom benefits from a fabulous en-suite, whilst the rest of the home is served by a modern family bathroom.
The house was originally built to house senior staff that worked in nearby Skelwith Fold Manor house. Despite undergoing a major renovation in recent years it has retained many period features, including solid beams, fireplaces and cosy nooks.
Our team have worked hard to modernise the property, without loosing any of its traditional charm. We’ve put our own unique stamp on the cottage – mixing top quality furniture with classic pieces to create an inviting space to relax and unwind.
The kitchen has had a complete overhaul and benefits from state of the art appliances, so you can cook up a storm during your self-catering holiday. The bathrooms are finished to a high standard, with excellent lighting, high pressure showers and a full length bath.
Spacious living area
The downstairs living area is bright and spacious, with plush seating and elegant soft furnishings. There are wood burners in the lounge and dining room to keep you cosy and warm during the chillier autumn and winter months.
The stylish conservatory is one of the stand out features of our popular holiday home. It overlooks the cottages private garden and boasts far-reaching views of the Lake District countryside in the distance. The large conservatory is the perfect place to sit back and soak up the scenery with a good book, or glass of wine in hand. It’s attached to a games room with table football and air hockey where younger members of the family can chill out and play.
Lake District cottage with hot tub
Outside there’s a generously sized cottage garden with pretty flowers and neatly manicured lawns. There’s a patio area with an outdoor table and chairs – perfect for dining alfresco during a summer break in The Lakes.
We’ve recently added a private hot tub for your relaxation and enjoyment. Enjoy a glass of bubbly under the clear night sky!
Dog Friendly Lake District Holiday Cottage
We’ve not forgotten your four-legged family members either – dogs are welcome in Number One, Skelwith Fold Cottages. We can accommodate up to two dogs in our Lake District holiday cottage. We’ve even provided a large dog crate so that, if you use one, you don’t have to transport your own. There is also a 95cm plastic dog bed so you can just bring their favourite blanket.
