About this Lake District holiday accommodation

Its only 4 minutes walk from ‘Ambleside’ town centre and just 8 minutes walk from Lake Windermere, right in the heart of the lakes. It is ideally situated for access to all the Lakes and Fells and has good bus links to most towns and villages in the National Park. Walks from the doorstep.

Some of the lakes long distance paths and walks are within easy access from Iveing Cottage

You can hire this Lake District holiday accommodation as a base camp for walking, cycling or swimming and athletics club outings. An ideal base for 3 peaks challenge stop over, Great North Swim, 24 peaks challenge, Lakes 100 and 50 ultra running races and most long distance walk stopovers.

Doing the John o’Groats – Land End cycle ride? Iveing Cottage makes an ideal ‘half way stop’ (give or take a mile so), so why not take a week break here with you cycling group and have a well earned rest?

Waterski in Ambleside

Watersports centre 2 miles away at Low Wood for water skiing canoe hire etc.

Character is built into most lake-district-accomodation, certainly this one. Squeaky floors, windows that rattle in a gale, prehistoric plumbing, steps and stairs everywhere!!!! This hostel is not really suitable for people with mobility problems.

Lake District Red Routes

We are pleased to see motor cycle tour or club outings who are visiting the lakes, and have parking on site for about 15 neatly placed bikes. This is a great base to stay for doing Lake District Red Routes. Plenty to chose from with grades from a walk in the park – to – that made you think!
