The property

Ghyll Heights is a stone's throw from the absolute heart of Ambleside centre and aptly named as it stands alongside Stockghyll Waterfalls with superb views from a private balcony. This contemporary riverside cottage forms part of a converted original bobbin mill in a peaceful setting yet so close to picturesque Ambleside. Two couples or a small family can spread out here, relax and soak up the two chic bedrooms with a bathroom facility a piece - bliss. The accommodation is superbly presented, with spacious living / socialising space and each king size suite is set on a floor of its own. A modern boutique cottage yet with a flair of a penthouse apartment complete with Wi-Fi, a view to remember and the delights of Ambleside and Lake Windermere within incredibly easy reach. == Accommodation in detail Ghyll Heights is set over 3 stories. An entrance hall leads to the spacious, luxuriously furnished living / dining room, overlooking Stockghyll falls from the balcony. Modern, well-equipped kitchen with all you may need. Upstairs to a king size en-suite bedroom; crisp and stylish with star gazing facility. The second king size bedroom enjoys its own bathroom on the lower level, enjoying a delightful outlook and with separate dressing room, perfect for pre-dinner pampering! Location Ghyll Heights nestles in a peaceful spot within the renowned Falls development alongside the tumbling waterfalls yet only a few minute's stroll from the centre of Ambleside backing onto Kirkstone. A holiday property in Ambleside provides an excellent starting point for a varied Lake District holiday. Easily accessible via the A591 on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a contemporary, characterful Lakeland village with a spectacular backdrop of Lake District fells. The location is ideal for walking in the Lake District, with many renowned routes beginning in and around the village. But Ambleside is also a popular choice for a relaxed, slow-paced holiday. Contemporary shops, leisurely lake cruises, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs make the village centre a delight at any time of year. For evening entertainment, you'll find plenty to suit every taste. Try the renowned Dodds restaurant, for lunch or an evening of relaxation. Or, take your pick from the two quirky cinemas; Zeffirellis cinema includes a great pizzeria and live jazz bar. Fellinis has an excellent vegetarian restaurant and shows films in a relaxed studio cinema environment. You'll also find a wide range of pubs, serving hearty food and real Lakeland ale - notable for its lake shore setting is the Wateredge Inn. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre. The elegant 'steamers' offer regular trips to Bowness and Lakeside - a great way to explore without driving. Evening cruises are also available, sometimes with buffet meals and live music.

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.
