    “We had a lovely week in red screes, it had everything we needed, lovely and comfortable, lots of storage and a nice big bath, the only downside was the bin outside was only for mixed waste, no recycling bin?”

    Or if there was there was no note explaining we’re it was? Other than that it was lovely

The property

The surroundings have an air of countryside living, the interior of elegant luxury - but this lovely first floor apartment with scenic balcony is only a 2 minute stroll from the vibrant centre of Ambleside village. Just a few minutes further to reach the shores of Lake Windermere. Red Screes shares the character of a period building, approached via private drive in one of Ambleside's peaceful conservation areas.Step inside to enjoy spacious, gracious accommodation (all on one level - no internal steps) with magnificent French windows and views over to Loughrigg and the surrounding fells. One or two couples, or family, will relax here and enjoy meals together in the attractive dining kitchen - perhaps strolling out the odd night to enjoy the delights of Ambleside village. == Accommodation in detail Outside, private parking for one car. From your private parking space walk the few paces to the traditional Lakeland porch to entrance hall. Spacious and light living room with large French windows as doors to a terraced balcony with view over to Loughrigg. Kitchen / dining room well-equipped for eating in, again enjoying the views and with window seat and original working shutters.1 king-size double bedroom with large French window and views. 2nd twin bedroom with slightly more contemporary decor style.

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.
