The property

An excellent choice for a romantic break in the Lake District, at any time of year. Little Stone Howe is a classy and contemporary cottage for two, only a few minutes' stroll from the centre of Ambleside village and the elegant shores of Lake Windermere. The decor is crisp and contemporary, with flashes of colour and plenty of homely charms. The outlook is sublime, enhanced by an elevated setting and enjoyed through enormous architect-designed windows. Wake up when you want, sip coffee on your patio, stroll into Ambleside, take a cruise on the lake or a walk in the surrounding area, then treat yourselves to an evening in town with an easy walk home to your peaceful retreat. Perfect! == Accommodation in detail Little Stone Howe provides accommodation all on one level, with private parking for 1 car outside the property. Enter to the well-equipped kitchen / dining area for two, set apart but open to the lounge. The lounge is cosy but very light, with enormous vaulted windows, vaulted beams and electric fire for ease of use. The double bedroom is chic and comfortable, with en-suite bathroom and shower over bath.Location Ambleside is a popular Lake District village, taking a very scenic location on the northern shores of Lake Windermere and surrounded by a dramatic backdrop of Lakeland Fells. Because of this, it's a very popular base for walking in the Lake District, with many expert outdoor shops on hand to provide advice - you can also pick up Lake District walking route tips in the Ambleside tourist information centre. There are several well-known Lake District restaurants in Ambleside, perfect for a special occasion or romantic meal. For example, The Flying Fleece is a popular pub in a beautifully converted saw mill. Ambleside also has a couple of quirky cinema venues; Zeffirellis Cinema, Pizzeria and Jazz Bar, and Fellinis Vegetarian Restaurant and Studio Cinema. You can also take a romantic evening cruise on Lake Windermere; Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly from Waterhead Pier which is just a stroll out of the village - a great way to explore Bowness and Lakeside without taking your car. Touring by car is scenic in every direction from your self-catering cottage in Ambleside. Follow the A591 north past tranquil Rydal Water to historic Grasmere, and visit the former home of William Wordsworth at Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum. The A591 also leads easily south to Troutbeck Bridge, Windermere and on to Bowness.

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.
