Fermain Cottage is a charming lakeland home that has been lovingly renovated over the years to a high standard. It is a three storey property on a peaceful road, just a very short walk from Ambleside town centre. With ample parking for two vehicles, it is a perfect base from which to explore everything the Lake District has to offer. A tranquil, cosy and memorable place to stay, for up to five people. We are a strictly dog-free cottage.

Gareth’s flat in Ambleside was top notch! We appreciated the kitchen amenities & especially the coffee maker. The location to town made it close enough to walk and we felt we were away from the bustle of the town streets. The hikes and local suggestions Gareth gave us contributed…

We had a great visit at Gareth’s place. The space is very comfortable and we quickly felt at home. We appreciated all the extra details: plenty of throws/blankets in case one gets cold, extra toiletries in the bathroom, Nespresso pods and a nice variety of teas. The bathroom…
