    “A really comfortable & well equipped apartment.”

    The kitchen is tiny, but has a separate fridge & freezer. I wondered if the sound of the river would keep me awake, but it was more like "white noise" in the background, and quite soothing! The town is an excellent base for walking, there were so many interesting walks within a few miles. In response to other reviews... The downstairs does smell a bit "rivery" especially if it's been shut up all day, but it soon goes off. Once you've parked and collected the keys, go under the archway, turn ...

Once you've parked and collected the keys, go under the archway, turn immediately left along the balcony, it's the second door. ***

The property

Perched above Stock Ghyll gorge, with a stream rushing past one balcony and sun glinting through woodlands at the other, River Falls View is a spacious and perhaps romantic retreat just minutes from the centre of Ambleside village. Beautifully presented, the apartment is well suited to families or couples alike. Families will enjoy the peaceful location with easy access to Lake District attractions in Ambleside - the downstairs master bedroom affords even more peace for Mum and Dad! Couples will love the hideaway ambience, with special evenings out only a stroll away. == Accommodation in detail Private under cover parking for 1 car. Private ground floor entrance via balcony to outer lobby then inner hall. Delightful living room with 2 deep-cushioned sofas, pine furniture and patio doors to a 2nd balcony overlooking Stock Ghyll gorge and the stream. Separate well-equipped kitchen. Twin bedroom and luxury power shower room on entrance level. Downstairs to the master king-size double bedroom with Victorian brass bed and New Villeroy & Boch en-suite bathroom. Location This contemporary Ambleside holiday home is only a short stroll away from the northern shores of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake. Windermere Lake Cruises are a popular Lake District holiday attraction; stroll to Waterhead Pier and you can catch one of the famous steamers to Bowness or Lakeside. A great way to explore car-free. Ambleside village centre is packed with tasty eateries and has a wide range of contemporary shops - from useful supermarkets to quirky gift stores. As the village is a popular base for walking in the Lake District, you'll also find a large number of expert outdoor clothing stores. By night, there is plenty of entertainment in Ambleside. Enjoy a special meal out at one of several acclaimed Lake District restaurants, such as The Glass House. Sample some real Lakeland ale in one of the cosy traditional pubs, or catch a film at one of the two independent cinemas in Ambleside. Ambleside is a great base for exploring the wider Lake District. The A591 is the main Lake District route, and continues on from Ambleside to historic Grasmere, and towards must-see locations such as Hawkshead, the Langdale Valley and Coniston.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
