    “Lovely holiday home with super comfortable beds.”

    The bench outside was great for enjoying the morning sun and having a coffee from the nespresso kitchen aid machine.

The property

This unique and historical Lake District character cottage forms part of a converted Grade II listed chapel, in Ambleside's peaceful conservation area. Dating back to 1550, this romantic property retains its period features; arched church windows, striking exposed beams and even such delights as a church pew featured in the dining area. Three decadent bedroom suites, including the truly special 'Belfry' bedroom, allow families or even 3 couples to share this unique Ambleside property. The unique combination of original church architecture and contemporary luxury really has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Couples will never forget this romantic retreat, and a luxury honeymoon in the Lake District couldn't be better placed! == Accommodation in detail Enter through old chapel doors with arched windows leading up an original oak staircase. The elegant and well-equipped kitchen / dining room is flooded with light through gothic-style doors, which lead to the garden. Sumptuous lounge with feature fireplace. Upstairs to two double suites, each beautifully presented with luxury en-suite bathrooms. Upstairs again to the romantic 'Belfry' bedroom suite which can be made up as a twin or superking bed (please specify when booking) and open plan bathroom, divided by A-frame beams and including a stunning Italian roll top bath. Location Nestled in Ambleside's historic conservation area, this luxurious Lake District holiday cottage is just far enough from the crowds to be blissfully peaceful and quiet. However, for special occasions and social events, the property is within easy reach of several excellent Ambleside restaurants and traditional Lakeland pubs. The village centre provides everything you could need during your Lake District holiday; a wide range of shops, cafes, cinema, and a huge amount of tourist information. You'll never be left wondering how to fill your time. A few minutes from the village is the shore of Lake Windermere at Waterhead. Here, enjoy lake shore dining, stunning lake views and of course the opportunity to take a romantic cruise on Lake Windermere - a great way to explore Bowness or Lakeside without taking your car. Ambleside also provides a great starting point for your day trips throughout the must-see areas of the Lake District. The A591 road leads north past Rydal Water to historic Grasmere; a world-famous Lake District village surrounded by the the poet William Wordsworth's favourite landscapes. Visit his former home at Dove Cottage, and explore Beatrix Potter's farmhouse at Hill Top. The A593 leads only a short distance to spectacular scenery and breathtaking walking in the Langdale Valley, and on to picturesque Coniston. Our tip for a romantic Sunday drive from Ambleside, is to join the famous Kirkstone Pass road which leads past serene Brotherswater on to Ullswater. The Queen's Head or the Mortal Man in Troutbeck can also be reached via this route, and are two of the finest gastropubs in the Lake District.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 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.

Please note this property has a zip link bed. This will be made as a twin by default. Please contact the call center should you wish it to be a super king.
