Accommodation in Detail
The front door opens to the hallway with plenty of space for coats and boots before entering the bright and smart open plan living accommodation. Comfortable sofas are arranged around the central coffee table and smart TV and French doors open from here to the patio with outdoor dining furniture making a lovely spot to sit and relax over a morning coffee or an evening cocktail whilst enjoying the views to the surrounding hills. Relax with family and friend over dinner at the family dining table or enjoy breakfast sat at the breakfast bar of the cool, contemporary kitchen which is equipped with quality appliances and everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay.
The two bedrooms are located on the first floor; the master bedroom, with Juliet balcony, faces west enjoying views to the hills and is presented with a comfortable super-king size bed. The smaller, second bedroom can be presented as either a king size bed or two twin beds which can be separated into two (2'6") single beds (ideal for children) should you require - so please state your preference when booking - thank you. Both bedrooms have smart TVs and are complemented by a luxurious family shower room with a large walk-in shower, basin and WC.
There are two allocated, private parking spaces for the property, with one served by an electric car charger. However, there is no further parking on site.
The wood in the grounds contains a pond so the owners respectfully draw guest’s attention to the fact that this and the layout of the property makes it unsuitable for children under 8 years.
This Ambleside self-catering house enjoys a wonderful location, despite only a short level stroll from the centre of Ambleside.
Ambleside village is located on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. The surrounding scenery of Lakeland Fells is dramatic and lends a stunning backdrop to the Lakeland stone buildings and attractive streets of the village. One of the Lake District's most sophisticated communities, Ambleside village is alive with interesting local businesses, shops, cinema and acclaimed Lake District restaurants and pubs.
Larger groups or families will love the freedom this location brings. Stroll to the shops or out for a coffee, then wander to Waterhead Pier to take a cruise on the lake. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly from Waterhead Pier (just outside the village centre) and provide a scenic and car-free route to Bowness and Lakeside. A fabulous way for all to explore.
For walking, Ambleside is renowned as a hub for enthusiasts. Numerous famous routes begin close by, and a wide range of strolls take in breath-taking scenery without having to travel too far. Ambleside is well stocked with outdoor shops and route information is widely available.
By night, you'll find plenty to entertain. Catch a film at one of the two cinemas, enjoy a drink on the shores of the lake or sample some of our region's finest dining - all just a stroll from your doorstep! The A591 winds its way from Ambleside to Grasmere and Keswick, branching off to Coniston and such delights as the Langdale Valley and Hawkshead.
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 king.
