Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England
The Dove Cot is set in a wonderful location, close to Ambleside, Grasmere, Keswick, Windermere, Hawkshead and Bowness to name a few. It has an abundance of activities available straight from the doorstep from walking up Loughrigg, to canoeing the River Brathay.

There is a luxurious round jaccuzi bath in the bathroom, beautiful limestone flooring throughout, a lakeland stone interior feature wall that houses a fireplace and a small decking area accesible from the lounge where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening and look out at the view over the River Brathay...
