Accommodation in detail
On-lane parking right outside the property in Ambleside (a real bonus in this location). Pretty slate steps lead down to the entrance. A stable door leads into the living room / bedroom with a large and comfy bed, leather club chairs and a cosy yet contemporary feel. There is a modern shower room, made for couples with a shower cubicle big enough for two. The spacious designer kitchen is elegant and relaxed, ideal for preparing lazy dinners together and containing a couple's dining table.
Outside find a small sitting-out spot, perfect for pre-dinner drinks.
A self-catering holiday in Ambleside provides a wonderful opportunity to escape, and experience Lake District life at the northern end of Lake Windermere. The village has an abundance of lazy cafes, elegant Lake District restaurants, traditional Lakeland pubs and tasty delicatessens, all surrounded by the spectacular backdrop of Lake Windermere and the Lakeland fells.
With this convenient Ambleside self-catering base to return to, you can take day trips throughout the Lake District with incredible ease:
From Waterhead Pier (a short stroll away) you can catch a Windermere steamer to Bowness or Lakeside; a great way to start a Lake District walk or to explore these other areas without use of a car. By road, journeys throughout the Lake District will never be too much trouble. For example, the A591 leads from Ambleside, past tranquil Rydal Water to Grasmere and William Wordsworth country, then on to Thirlmere, Derwent Water and Keswick. Travel south on the same road to visit Windermere, Bowness and the fabulous gastropubs of the Lyth Valley.
However you choose to spend your holiday in the Lakes, a self-catering property in Ambleside is a great place to start.
