The property

This gorgeous traditional detached and spacious Lakeland farmhouse nestles in a sleepy backwater only a two-minute stroll from the heart of picturesque Ambleside. Spread out in luxury inside with sophisticated style and superb facilities to hand. Step outside and relax awhile on the lawn or dine al fresco on the paved patio. Flexible room options allow your party to select the best bed combination to suit your needs (see below). Plenty of bathroom/shower facilities ensure no one is left waiting. The pretty setting is peaceful and beautiful within such a central location. The roomy and gracious interior has to be seen to be fully appreciated and you will notice the quality of all the fixtures and fittings. Only literally a stone's throw away is cosmopolitan Ambleside, alive with excellent restaurants and bars to tempt you out and walks are in abundance straight from your doorstep. Cross Brow is designed to provide a perfect holiday at any time of the year and help recharge those batteries. Accommodation in detail The large lawned garden and patios with wonderful vantage points surround the property and you find private parking for three cars right outside. The magnificent living / dining room is flooded with light and has sumptuous furnishings set on oak flooring by the woodburner, designed for relaxation. A second sitting room also has a woodburning stove and wonderful views towards Loughrigg Fell. The adorable kitchen has everything where Nigella herself would feel at home and there is a glass viewing area to the original well. On this level is a cloakroom / 5th WC / wash basin. Upstairs to the gorgeous bedrooms with stunning outlooks and bathroom facilities; 1 king size, 1 king/twin (please specify) and 1 double; 2 en-suites as well as a separate bathroom and separate shower room. Please note that this property accepts babies under 18 months and children of 12yrs and above. Location Just a couple of minutes' stroll from the heart of the village, this fabulous Ambleside self-catering accommodation enjoys the best of both worlds in a popular location. Easy access to the entertainments and facilities of Ambleside village, yet peaceful surroundings and direct access to walks and cycle rides in abundance. Ambleside is a historic Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. The pretty streets are scattered with traditional Lake District cottages and historic buildings, but also packed with sophisticated shops and a very high standard of cafes, pubs and acclaimed Lake District restaurants. There are also two cinemas - perfect for those rainy days! Stroll to Waterhead Pier, just outside the village centre, and you can take a Windermere Lake Cruise to explore Bowness or Lakeside - a great way for the family to explore without any stressful car journeys! There are several historic attractions in Ambleside - the Armitt museum takes a peek into the industrial history of the area, and one of William Wordsworth's family homes can be visited nearby at Rydal Mount & Gardens.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.

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.
