About this Holiday Cottage

The Cuckoo's Nest is a delightful self-catering cottage, as charming as it sounds and a perfect Ambleside hideaway for couples, yet located in the heart of the Lake District village of Ambleside. Awarded 5 stars by Visit England in recognition of its excellent overall quality, the cottage is prettily furnished and offers everything you’ll need for a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable break in the Lake District.   


While cosy and compact, the cottage covers two floors and comprises a well equipped kitchen/dining area (including fridge freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster), a comfortable lounge with freeview TV and DVD player, bathroom with shower and spa bath and one double bedroom. There is gas central heating throughout and an electric fire in the lounge, ideal for autumn and winter or even those cooler summer days. For that extra bit of luxury both the kitchen and the bathroom also have lovely, cosy under-floor heating independent of the central heating.  


The cottage is situated behind The Smallwood House B&B and is accessed via the private car park. Allocated parking for one car is provided.

Other Things to Note

Guests at the Cuckoo’s Nest have use of the luxury spa and swimming pool at a hotel just a few minutes walk away.  Secure cycle storage is available if you would like to bring your own bicycle. There is complimentary WiFi and all prices include gas, electricity, towels and bed linen.  


A Friday to Friday changeover applies for week long stays. Short breaks of three or four nights may be available at certain times of year. Please ask us for details. Please note that we do not accept pets.

Around and About

The cottage owners are on hand (next door at Smallwood House Hotel) to welcome you and to help you make the most of your stay if needed. A great choice of specialist shops, bars, cafes and good quality restaurants can be found closeby and the village is a superb base for exploring other Cumbrian towns and attractions.
