Our cottagesPreviously, we had let our Cobbleholes Cottage, together with the other two cottages, as holiday lets.

However, we have now retired from the holiday cottage business and so our cottages are no longer available to let.

This website is now a family website and has up to date weather for Ambleside from our digital weather station, links to local history sites which we manage and our blog, showing what's going on around the cottages!

With the help from Jill's late Uncle Jack, we have put together an illustrated history of the cottages and life in the valley since 1815. There is a link to it on our history tab on the left.

NEW FOR 2024

We have now added the whole of the Local History Photographic Archive to this website. It contains hundreds of pictures collected by the late Joan Newby, who asked us to ensure that they would be available for everyone to see in the years ahead! It includes town scenes, views of the old shops, hotels, festivals, transport - to name just a few categories!

To see the archive - begin by clicking the "Ambleside History" tab in the left hand menu.
