    “We loved Little Bethel itself but feel it is important to note on the listing that it is a flat, definitely not a cottage.”

    We wouldn't have booked if we had known it was a flat as wouldn't want people above and below us. We were woken up most nights by the people above getting up in the night. We feel the listing is deceptive as it makes it seem it is a cottage, not a flat

The property

This romantic, central Lakeland hideaway is a stone's throw from the heart of picturesque Ambleside village providing a contemporary yet traditional and convenient treat for any special occasion. Completed in traditional Lakeland cottage style, but step inside and you'll fall in love with the clean and crisp presentation and those superb views. Sip a drink on the comfortable window seat and gaze out of the picture window towards Loughrigg Fell. For a cosy night in, relax on the sumptuous, deep-cushioned leather sofa in front of the warming woodburning stove, perfectly set within the exposed stone wall and complimented by the rich oak flooring. Cooks will delight in this state of the art and well equipped kitchen with its granite worktops and limestone tiles, but if a night off is on the menu then the central location of the apartment is perfect for easy eating out. A luxurious bedroom complete with separate dressing room only adds to the romance of this sought-after Lake District bolthole and not forgetting the luxurious slate - tiled bathroom perfect for long soaks after a hard day on the fells. ==Accommodation in detail Park either outside on the lane or in the very nearby car park with your own permit provided. Traditional entrance porch into the open-plan living space providing a first sight of that glorious view; admire the cosy yet sophisticated space and begin unwinding. Relax by the woodburner and step into the kitchen area which has everything you may need including the glorious views. The romantic bedroom is beautiful and the elegant dressing room, a real treat. The slate-tiled luxurious bathroom is perfect. Location Ambleside is a popular Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Attractive with its historic Lakeland stone buildings and winding streets, the village has grown to become one of the most sophisticated destinations in the Lake District. In the village centre, you'll find a wide range of shops from boutiques to expert outdoor clothing stores. Classy cafes are around every corner, so there are plenty of opportunities to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Some of the Lake District's finest restaurants are found in and around Ambleside - such as the Glass House in the village centre, or the famed Drunken Duck Inn just a short drive away at Outgate. Of course, it's a must to enjoy Lake Windermere during your stay. Just a short stroll outside Ambleside village centre is Waterhead Pier, where Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to ferry passengers the full length of the lake. The traditional 'steamers' are a wonderfully romantic way to explore, with no need to use a car, and stopping off at Bowness or Lakeside. For a taste of the wilder Lake District, take a short drive to Coniston or the breathtaking Langdale Valley - both within easy reach. Or, head up onto Kirkstone Pass - a high and dramatic road that winds its way between Windermere and Ullswater.

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.
