The original coach house and stables

This charming character cottage is formed from the original coach house and stables for the magnificent Pullwood Bay Estate, just two miles from Ambleside and with lake access down the long woodland driveway to the western shores of Lake Windermere. This is a perfect setting in which to relax and to make the most of the beautiful setting at the entrance to the fifty-acre grounds.

The cottage offers modern comforts whilst retaining the feel of a traditional property ideal for a holiday at any time of the year. The famous Drunken Duck Inn is just half a mile away and there are wonderful walks and rambles to be enjoyed in the area. Tarn Hows and Wray Castle are just short drives away. Lake cruises start at Waterhead whilst local shopping in Ambleside serves all your daily needs.
