The property

2 The Old Coach House is a fascinating semi-detached stone cottage in the lively Cumbrian town of Ambleside. The property welcomes a couple, family, or friends wishing to share with convenient access to nearby amenities and Lake Windermere. For a staycation in the countryside, why not bring two canine companions? Find your assigned parking spot and take in the elegant exterior of this former coach house. Accommodation Inside, you'll find stylish furnishings throughout, as well as original characteristics like high ceilings and exposed wooden beams; continue down the hallway to the open-plan living area, which will undoubtedly be the social heart of your vacation! In the well-equipped kitchen, prepare home-cooked meals while your guests uncork a bottle of wine and toast to your getaway. Before settling into the living area to catch up with loved ones or watch a show on the TV, dine at the eye-catching black and white dining table. Step inside the modern, ground-floor bathroom after a day of outdoor activity to unwind with a peaceful bubble bath or a hot shower. Next door is a convenient utility cupboard where you can toss muddy walking gear into the washer/dryer! Climb the stairs to one of two light-filled bedrooms; the mezzanine king-size zip/link, with a balcony and a small glass floor panel overlooking the living areas and wooden beams overhead, is a unique location to rest your head. The queen-size room next door is a cosy, lovely place to hunker down before the next day's travels. Location Fantastic sights and amenities are right on your doorstep; Ambleside has plenty of pubs, restaurants, cafés, and stores for your self-catering stay, as well as cinemas and bars for nighttime entertainment! Waterhead situated at the northern extremity of Lake Windermere offering magnificent views, where guests can enjoy cruises, boat rides, and watersports in wonderful rural surroundings, while Ambleside Climbing Wall is a must-see for adventurous guests. Historians can explore the remnants of a 2nd-century Roman fort and the National Trust's Wray Castle, or bring a picnic and meander through magnificent woodlands to see Stock Ghyll Force, a popular site not to be missed. Visit Windermere, a bustling town where you can climb Orrest Head for panoramic views, wander through Cook House Gallery, or visit familiar characters at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. For Wordsworth enthusiasts and enthusiastic walkers, Grasmere is to the north; visit the Wordsworth Museum and discover the poet's former home, then take a circular path along the River Rothay, finishing with a typical pub lunch. Spend the day in Keswick exploring the Derwent Pencil Museum, Puzzling Place's illusion exhibitions, or seeing a play at Theatre By The Lake. With a stay at 2 The Old Coach House, you'll be in the perfect location to explore the best of the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
