The property

This comfortable first floor apartment created in part of the former bobbin mill at The Falls will be a good location for your Lakeland holiday. With the centre of Ambleside within walking distance you will find plenty of eating places and good shopping easily to hand. Over Ghyll, as its name implies, is situated overlooking the Stock Ghyll River which tumbles down the valley into the village and there are pleasant outlooks from all the main windows. There are walks from the door for all ages and abilities and you could happily stay here without much need to use your car. Accommodation: Private entrance at first floor level from shared internal staircase. Entrance hall with cupboard for coats etc.. Pleasant sitting/dining room with windows on two sides catches the morning sun (flat screen TV with freesat HD, DVD, CD/tape/radio and free Wi-fi) and has a relaxing holiday feel. The separate kitchen, which is of a contemporary style and includes worktops of local green slate, overlooks the trees and river. There are two bedrooms - one double and one twin - and a modern fitted bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and wc. The property is cosy throughout the year. Furnishings are comfortable with fitted carpets throughout. Outside: Private parking for one car. Walks from the door to Ambleside centre for shopping, eating out etc.. The more active will enjoy the challenge of The Fairfield Horseshoe, Loughrigg and Wansfell and the property is well placed for touring to all parts of the Lake District.

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.
