Townfoot Cottage, Elterwater, Ambleside Dog Friendly Contemporary Sleeps 4

Cottage in Ambleside
Found in the corner of a small courtyard of traditional Lakeland cottages, dog friendly, Townfoot Cottage provides two bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The holiday cottage entrance brings you into the contemporary, luxury-fitted kitchen and eating area. Alongside is the living area where you can relax and in colder weather, enjoy the warmth of a log-burning stove, while the large windows allow the Lakeland light to flood in.

There is a useful laundry/cloakroom at the foot of the stairs and upstairs there are two stylish bedrooms with window seats, where you can enjoy the lovely views. The luxurious family bathroom is designed for long soaks after a hard day on the fells!

Private parking is right outside the cottage.

There are beautiful views from the cottage, and many walks straight from the door. The characterful and cute local sheep (Herdwick breed) are free to roam the village, and can often be seen wandering up the road, or curled up asleep outside the cottage.

*COVID POLICY. For the remainder of 2021, should your stay be impossible due to a lockdown or Tier restrictions in either your or our area, then we request that ABNB give you a full refund.*

**CHILDREN'S BEDDING - We are happy to provide two single duvets for one of the beds, should you prefer, if you'd like to bring children**

**ENQUIRIES - Please do not request short breaks, we ONLY take week long bookings, Saturday to Saturday. Thanks.**

Fantastic cosy little cottage
The cottage was lovely and clean and very cosy. Beds were comfortable and the cottage was equipped with all you would need like home from home. No garden to let the dog out into so always had to take him up the road, but the views made this no hardship. Lovely walks from the cottage. A walk to the Talbot Inn was perfect. They are dog friendly and the food was lovely. Even do food for dogs! Would definitely stay again as perfect :o)
