Full description

Location Haven Cottage is a lovely cottage style B and B which is within level walking distance of the wide range of amenities in Ambleside. From the centre of Ambleside take Rydal Road passing the Little Bridge House heading in the direction of Grasmere, continue along Rydal Road passing the Police Station and Fire Station and Haven Cottage can be found 100 yards on the left hand side opposite the Health Centre. 

Description A great deal of care and attention has been paid by the present owners to create a lovely welcoming bed and breakfast with a unique and comfortable cottage feel and more than a touch of style and class. Haven Cottage is located on the edge of the popular small Lakeland town of Ambleside, situated at the northern tip of Lake Windermere in the beautiful Lake District National Park. Not surprisingly, the property does enjoy some lovely fell views.

Ambleside itself is surrounded by stunning scenery and is a delightful small market town offering a wide range of facilities including a variety of highly regarded restaurants, cafes, shops, traditional Lakeland inns and, perhaps more surprisingly, a variety of cinemas.

With plenty of private car parking, Haven Cottage enjoys an enviable main road location and yet still manages to achieve a peaceful and relaxing feel.

The accommodation has an inherent versatility in its design which allows a great deal of flexibility in how it may be employed. The current owners enjoy excellent private living space which includes a sitting room, office and cloaks room on the ground-floor with a first floor bedroom, luxury bathroom and balcony above. For those who might wish to live elsewhere altogether, the ground-floor space could easily revert to a further en-suite letting bedroom. Others may wish to occupy the delightful suite at the rear which is currently let to include a bedroom, en-suite and a sitting room with a balcony overlooking the fields and fells.

Attention to detail is perhaps the key to the very welcoming feel of Haven Cottage. From the attractive window shutters and window seats to the luxury en-suite facilities, nothing has been overlooked. The style and quality of the accommodation is no doubt a significant factor in the reported 70% repeat trade currently enjoyed, making this an excellent business opportunity with a very healthy turnover and trading figures (we are informed by the owners that this is over £100,000). This is a splendid opportunity and not one to be missed.
