The property

This semi-detached cottage sits in a charming position with great views within Ambleside, just a short walk from a range of amenities. Delightfully presented over two floors, 8 Oaks Fields provides a welcoming escape for up to six guests, with easy access to the delights of Ambleside. Enter on the first-floor, stepping into the kitchen/diner where the house chef can rustle up a hearty feast, utilising the electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even the dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when cleaning up! Move into the lounge, where you can put your feet up on the sofa and tune into the TV, thinking about the adventures to come. As you look to catch your rest, choose between three neatly presented bedrooms; on the first floor lies a double and twin, serviced by a gleaming bathroom where you can begin your morning routine, or choose the ground-floor twin, ideal for those with limited mobility. Step outside and relish in the garden patio, perching on the bistro table and chairs, taking in the idyllic surroundings. Wander into Ambleside’s town centre, where you can browse the shops, enjoy a meal at one of the excellent restaurants, or indulge in an afternoon treat at a café or tearoom before continuing your exploring. From Ambleside, follow the river up to the stunning Stock Ghyll Force, a 70-foot waterfall with a scenic viewing bridge, before taking off a ramble to Wansfell Pike. Step onboard the Windermere steamer, taking you down to the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, where you can visit the Lakes Aquarium in Lakeside before tailing back around and discovering the unbeatable views of the wooded landscapes. Choose 8 Oaks Fields for a memorable escape to the Lakelands.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

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.
