Red Screes Cottage, Ambleside
Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 4
The surroundings have an air of countryside living, the interior of elegant luxury - but this lovely first floor apartment with scenic balcony is only a 2 minute stroll from the vibrant centre of Ambleside village. Just a few minutes further to reach the shores of Lake WIndermere. Red Screes shares the character of a period building, approached via private drive in one of Ambleside's peaceful conservation areas. Step inside to enjoy spacious, gracious accommodation with magnificent French windows and views over the garden to Loughrigg and the surrounding fells. One or two couples, or family, will relax here and enjoy meals together in the attractive dining kitchen - perhaps strolling out the odd night to enjoy the delights of Ambleside village.
