Two lovely holiday cottages in the Lakes are available, in return for a donation to charity.
They are being let by Mater Amabilis church in Ambleside who support a parish in Turkana, Northern Kenya, and want to raise some money to buy another fishing boat to help the community become more self-sufficient.
The first cottage, near Ambleside, is available Mon-Thurs, as the owners live there at weekends, for a minimum donation of £50 a night. It’s a beautifully modernised traditional cottage about a mile from the village, and a mile from the Drunken Duck Inn. It has central heating and a woodburner, two double bedrooms, modern kitchen and bathroom, Sky TV and free wifi. Wonderful views, and lovely walks from the door.
The second is at Chapel Stile in Great Langdale and sleeps four comfortably, though there are beds for six. It has terrific views up the valley, two double beds (one in an attic) and a bunk room. This one is to let for short breaks or full weeks, but not during school holidays. Both are available to careful and conscientious visitors who will leave the place as clean as they found it. You have to bring your own sheets, pillowcases, towels and tea-towels, but duvets and pillows are provided.
