Relax

Maybe you just want to relax. Take a gentle stroll through the estate grounds. Sit quietly on the jetty and watch the water.  Enjoy some award winning local cuisine. Curl up in front of a roaring fire.

 

Explore

Maybe you want to thrash through the forest tracks on a mountain bike.  Slip on your trail running shoes for a blast along the valley. Pull on your boots for a big day on the hills. Get pumped and scared witless on some traditional crags.

 

Culture

Maybe you want to trace the footsteps of Wordsworth. Ponder the life & work of Ruskin.  Revisit your childhood with Beatrix Potter. Or do some detective work and see if Pullwood Bay really inspired Arthur Ransome’s Swallows & Amazons.


Curlew Close cottage is located on the exclusive Pullwood Bay Estate, a private 51-acre woodland on the north west shore of Lake Windermere between Ambleside and Hawkshead. The cottage enjoys woodland views and is just a short stroll from both the lake and The Drunken Duck pub.

Just five minutes drive from Ambleside’s shops, restaurants and cinema. If you don’t fancy driving then there’s a bridleway that lets you walk/bike/run all the way into town.  If you just want to get away from it all then you’ll feel lost on your own private estate buried away in the Lakes. The cottage has just been redecorated and aims for friendly comfort. You should feel at home and we welcome kids, dogs and an entrance hall full of muddy boots.
