Ambleside self-catering accommodation rarely comes in a more picturesque setting.

Stableman's Cottage, set up perfectly for self catering, is situated within part of the historic country house of Stepping Stones, once owned by William Wordsworth's son. The house overlooks the famous stepping stones across the River Rothay at the foot of Loughrigg fell surrounded by beautiful countryside. This lovely location is amazingly within walking distance of the bustling village of Ambleside, a short drive to Grasmere and the popular tourist villages of Bowness and Windermere. Also a short stroll away is the hamlet of Rydal where there is a local pub and tea rooms.

Combining characteristic features of exposed beams and vaulted ceilings with tasteful comfortable interiors and modern appliances, the cottage is well-equipped for self-catering and the perfect base in which to explore the Lake District.

Having 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms, the cottage layout is ideal for families (suitable for children from age 5+), groups of friends or two couples wishing to have separate private bathroom/shower facilities.

Stableman's offers a lovely 'home from home' and is an ideal Lakeland retreat …. comfortable accommodation, stunning views, fantastic walks straight from the door, an abundance of local wildlife, a myriad of local eateries, well located for visiting tourist attractions …. and much much more.

Our weekly changeover day is Friday although out of the main season we offer weekend and short breaks.

We are officially rated 4* by Visit England and have experience of letting out our holiday home for many years with excellent reviews.

Please note that we are situated at the top of Stepping Stones House with our own separate private patio entrance from the top of the garden. There are other property lets in the House so Stableman's is not suitable for a loud party of guests. We do not accept stag/hen parties out of respect to the other holidaymakers at Stepping Stones who have chosen our beautiful location for its peace and solitude.

After parking and admiring our beautiful location looking down to the river and the fields and fells beyond, guests make their way up stone steps (14 to be precise) and follow a path at the side of the main garden to one more step that leads on to our private dining patio and front door.

The front door leads into an open plan kitchen/dining area. This lovely fitted kitchen complete with electric oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/dryer is very well-equipped for self-catering.

Two steps lead up into the lounge where the tastefully designed soft furnishings and comfortable seating for 5 provide a lovely relaxing place to unwind at the end of the day. There is a TV, DVD player, Sonos speaker and CD player with ipod dock/audio. Also available is an excellent selection of games, books and DVDs for guests to enjoy during their stay (these are no longer available as a result of changes made following the Covid-19 lockdown - we hope it will be on a temporary basis)

From the lounge, one step accesses a hallway leading to the double bedroom with en-suite shower room to one side and in the opposite direction are the king size and single bedrooms and bathroom with shower over the bath. All the bedrooms have velux windows with blackout blinds and stunning views of the fells. There is some height restriction in the spacious bedrooms as they are built into the eaves.

We provide bedlinen (beds made) and towels.

The bedroom configuration provides perfect accommodation for 2-5 people.

Stableman’s is NOT SUITABLE FOR DISABLED GUESTS because of the steps up to reach the garden and the split level aspect of the accommodation.
The cottage is also NOT SUITABLE FOR BABIES : only children from age 6+ with adult supervision in the garden.

From July 2020/following Covid-19 lockdown, we have new cleaning guidelines and protocols in place.

Rydal, Ambleside, Mbretëria e Bashkuar

Located in idyllic rural surroundings in the heart of the English Lake District national park with a view that has hardly changed since the property was in the Wordsworth family, Stableman’s Cottage is just minutes from Ambleside by car. Guests have a true getting away from it all experience in beautiful and stunning scenery spectacularly located by River Rothay near Rydal Water.

There are many many wonderful walks straight from the door, ranging from short walks to full day hikes. These include nearby Rydal Caves by Rydal Water, Loughrigg Terrace towards Grasmere and the fabulous 11 mile circuit of Fairfield Horseshoe.

We are short stroll from the hamlet of Rydal where there is a local pub and tea rooms at Rydal Mount (former home of Wordsworth) and Rydal Hall (open throughout the year).

Alternatively a few minutes in the car (or about 20 minutes by foot) takes you to the vibrant village of Ambleside known by locals as the jewel in Lakeland's crown. Here you will find an interesting range of local shops, tempting delicatessens, traditional Lakeland pubs and top-class restaurants - even a cinema and live music bar. There are also endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Lake Windermere can also be enjoyed from Waterhead Pier, where ferries depart regularly to Bowness and Lakeside.

Nearby too is Grasmere, a wonderful Lakeland village with views abound. Grasmere has drawn poets, artists and painters for centuries. Famously the home of William Wordsworth in Dove Cottage. This can also be reached by foot by a path from Rydal Mount.

Bowness on Windermere is the most popular tourist destination in Cumbria; it is a hive of activity with plenty to see and do. Both young and old love to feed the ducks and swans at the water's edge and the many steamer cruises and boat hire are popular choices. There are cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and shops to help you while away the hours. The famous Beatrix Potter museum is well worth a visit too.

On the other side of Loughrigg Fell from Stableman's is the Langdale Valley with many walks and a selection of tea rooms and pubs at Skelwith Bridge and Elterwater. Further afield, Hawkshead, Coniston, Ullswater, Keswick and Borrowdale are all easy to drive to from our base.

The Lakes is a very special place for me and my family and Stableman's is situated in our favourite area for walking and exploring the Lakes - the riverside location, beautiful all-round views, abundance of walks from the door and proximity to Ambleside are added bonuses. Having used holiday homes ourselves, we know what is important for an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
