    “Really lovely house in a great position.”

    Only issue was the heating which presume was being controlled remotely

    Only issue was the heating which presume was being controlled remotely

    - Claire, December 2021

    We have investigated the heating, the timer for the heating had reset itself and so was not heating the property at the correct times. This has been reset and the house is nice and warm! If you have any problems please contact Lakelovers and they can sort it out quickly. The heating is not controlled remotely, there is a thermostat on the first floor landing which can be adjusted and all the radiators have controls. And of course the fire can always be used to keep the downstairs cosy at all times. Property Owner


The property

A fantastic Lakeland cottage, in a peaceful location just off the absolute heart of vibrant Ambleside. Beautifully refurbished and presented to contemporary 4 star standards, with spacious open plan living space and 3 stylish double bedrooms, Malvern provides an excellent base for family, couples or friends. Relax together, take scenic walks from your doorstep, or stroll to the shores of Lake Windermere to take a cruise from Waterhead Pier. While you're only a stone's throw from cosy pubs, cafe culture and acclaimed Lake District restaurants in Ambleside, you'll also enjoy sociable meals at home. A contemporary fitted kitchen and casual dining area are open to the living room - well-lit and warmed by a gas woodburning stove. Balmy summer evenings will be well spent with a drink or two in the pretty rear yard. == Accommodation in detail Parking permit provided for central Ambleside. Stylish entrance hall with oak flooring, opening into a spacious open plan living area with luxurious lounge seating, gas woodburning stove, designer oak kitchen, dining area and separate utility. Upstairs to a stunning super king-size/twin bedroom. Additional king-size bedroom and modern shower room on this level. The top floor is dedicated to a further king-size bedroom and luxury wet room including double-ended bath. Outside is a pretty and well-furnished yard, and a seating area at the front of the cottage. Location Ambleside village takes a scenic location off the northern shores of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake. With a backdrop of dramatic fells and picturesque countryside, the village is a popular base for walking in the Lake District. But if you don't plan to take the the fells, you'll find plenty to entertain you in this vibrant village community. Explore contemporary shopping streets and high quality cafes, tempting delicatessens and acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as The Glass House - within a beautifully converted saw mill. Ambleside also has two cinemas; Fellinis Vegetarian Restaurant and Studio Cinema, and Zeffirellis Cinema, Pizzeria and Jazz Bar. Stroll a short distance from the village centre to Waterhead Pier, on the shores of Lake Windermere. There you'll find several excellent eateries overlooking the lake, and the famous Lake Windermere steamers departing regularly from the pier. These memorable cruises provide a car-free route to Bowness and Lakeside - a great way to explore. Evening cruises with buffet meals and live music are also available - check the website for sailing times. Touring the Lake District is easy from Ambleside's central location on the A591. This road leads south towards family attractions in Bowness, the Troutbeck Valley and dramatic Kirkstone Pass, or north past idyllic Rydal Water to Grasmere - home of William Wordsworth. Hawkshead village and Beatrix Potter's home are also within very easy reach.

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 super king.
