  • “Ideal setting, well appointed, quiet, no faults.”

    Suggestions: Those not over tech savvy would benefit from detailed instructions on the TV / Freesat ie which remote to use . The instruction manuals are not clear enough for the uninitiated. A grab rail in the bath would be helpful for the older holidaymaker, or at least an anti slip bath mat.

The property

A truly romantic location awaits you at this incredible waterfall setting, Kingfisher Cottage has been extensively redeveloped and offers an incredible level of quality with luxurious features throughout. Spacious yet cosy and intriguingly designed on three levels, it sits high above the beck, nestling into the side of Stockghyll Gorge and savouring the charm of the water cascading over the rocks below with woodland on the opposite bank. Set within a select, beautifully renovated Bobbin Mill development on the edge of Ambleside village, it is within easy reach of cafes, shops, restaurants, pubs, cinemas, the lake and many walks which can be undertaken without using the car. == Accommodation in detail A flight of external steps descends to an attractive, private courtyard garden with rustic love seat and garden furniture where you can relax al fresco with a glass of wine or two.Enter into the hallway with useful cloaks cupboard; a small stairway leads to a large lounge with designer furniture, comfy sofas, stylish lighting. The kitchen features bespoke handmade solid wood units set off by granite work surfaces. The rare green Elterwater slate floor in the kitchen is a wonderful locally sourced feature and excellent NEFF appliances top it all off. This room is made all the more special by a private balcony where you can sit at the windows and be mesmerised by the river as it flows below.The bathroom is a good size and developed to a high quality finish featuring stone tiles and a large bath, perfect for a long soak after walks on Wansfell. The bedroom is light and airy with a large King size bed, solid wood furniture, art work and well appointed accessories. Private parking for one car adjoining the property.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
