Fermain Cottage is a charming lakeland home that has been lovingly renovated over the years to a high standard. It is a three storey property on a peaceful road, just a very short walk from Ambleside town centre. With ample parking for two vehicles, it is a perfect base from which to explore everything the Lake District has to offer. A tranquil, cosy and memorable place to stay, for up to five people. We are a strictly dog-free cottage.

A terrific little cottage, well equipped and close to town. Be prepared for narrow steep stairs, but the walk up them is worth it for the view and access to a superb bathroom. I would recommend this cottage to anyone.

Great little cottage that had everything we needed. We loved the town and how close it was to town. Clean and tidy and had a high chair and cot which is great for my baby. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The house is super cute and it couldn’t be better situated! Loved the bathroom and having the fire on in the evening. Also liked we could roll home from the many excellent pubs.

Great place to base yourself to explore the Lakes District. The cottage is well equipped and the bathroom is modern and lovely. Bedrooms are all great. Very close to Ambleside town centre, just a shorter stroll to access the restaurants and pubs as well as many walks and…

I have spent many years hiking, walking and cycling in the Lake District and Yorkshire and am more than happy to offer advice on some great walking / cycling routes in the area.
