A 5-minute walk from Ambleside and a mile from Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, this charming guest house was originally 2 separate Victorian cottages. It specialises in home-cooked food and offers free Wi-Fi and free parking on site.
Haven Cottage still retains traditional old features like wooden beams and feature fireplaces. Most rooms benefit from picturesque mountain views, and all feature a TV and tea and coffee making facilities.
Breakfast is provided each morning, made with Cumberland sausage or vegetarian sausage, lightly smoked dry-cured bacon, and other locally sourced ingredients.
A number of scenic walking routes start from Haven Cottage, and cycle storage is provided if guests wish to bring their bicycle. The market town of Keswick is a 20-minute drive away.

Stayed 2 nights in July 2013
A very comfortable stay with friendly staff”
Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and locally-sourced food
We were pleasantly surprised by how accommodating the staff were, as we checked in later in the evening. The owner welcomed us when we arrived, and throughout our stay we always felt welcomed and engaged in conversation with the staff. Tables are laid and breakfasts are prepared each morning. The owners also have a Labrador named Jake who is extremely friendly and well-behaved. There is also an option to have your breakfast in the garden if weather permits, which you should if you have the opportunity.
