    “We spent a lovely weekend break in this cottage, only 2 of us, and at a very reduced rate for last minute booking.”

    The cottage was well equipped and warm. The plumbing was first class with an Aqualisa shower ! About 5 minutes walk into Ambleside.

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 This property is beautifully presented and having two large bedrooms with private bathrooms, ideal for two couples sharing or a small family group. Ghyll Heights is arranged over three floors. On the lower floor is a lovely king size room and seperate bathroom. A separate dressing room adds an element of luxury, and the outlook is onto woodland. The entrance hall leads to the main living area and balcony with a view over the nearby waterfall. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped with everything needed to conjure up a hearty breakfast or evening meal. Upstairs again to the second of the two bedrooms which is a super king-size room with en-suite bathroom. Total privacy in a charming location. Parking is in the car port and there is space for one large or up to two small cars. There is extra parking in the visitors spaces if required. 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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
