The property

The Loft apartment is a gorgeous, romantic hideaway for two, a real hidden gem! Completed in traditional Lakeland cottage style, but step inside and you'll fall in love with the clean and crisp presentation and those breathtaking views. It's only a stone's throw from the heart of picturesque Ambleside village providing a perfect hideaway at any time of the year. Gaze out of the picture windows over interesting rooftops of this beautiful village where the surrounding mountains appear so close you can almost reach out and touch them. Oak beams into the exposed 'loft' as well as floors contrast sumptuous, deep-cushioned leather furnishings and crisp traditional walls which carry throughout, the traditional woodburning stove provides for cosy nights in, cooks will be delighted in this state of the art kitchen, and the central location for easy eating out. In the luxurious bedroom, the further wonderful views to Loughrigg Fell only add to the romance of this sought-after romantic Lake District treat and not forgetting the luxurious slate bathroom perfect for long soaks after a hard day on the fells. == Accommodation in detail Park right outside The Loft. Entrance hall, perfect for walking clobber and then a beautiful oak staircase and exposed stone wall into 'The Loft'; a first sight of that glorious view, admire the vaulted ceilings and intricate old oak beams. This living space is vast and so full of interesting features, the views have to be mentioned more times than this description will allow. The kitchen is superb and 'Nigella' would feel right at home here. The romantic bedroom is beautiful and the slate luxurious bathroom perfect. Outside is a small patio, with bistro set, ideal for an al-fresco drink.Location Ambleside is a popular Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Attractive with its historic Lakeland stone buildings and winding streets, the village has grown to become one of the most sophisticated destinations in the Lake District. In the village centre, you'll find a wide range of shops from boutiques to expert outdoor clothing stores. Classy cafes are around every corner, so there are plenty of opportunities to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Some of the Lake District's finest restaurants are found in and around Ambleside - such as the Glass House in the village centre, or the famed Drunken Duck Inn just a short drive away at Outgate. Of course, it's a must to enjoy Lake Windermere during your stay. Just a short stroll outside Ambleside village centre is Waterhead Pier, where Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to ferry passengers the full length of the lake. The traditional 'steamers' are a wonderfully romantic way to explore, with no need to use a car, and stopping off at Bowness or Lakeside. For a taste of the wilder Lake District, take a short drive to Coniston or the breathtaking Langdale Valley - both within easy reach. Or, head up onto Kirkstone Pass - a high and dramatic road that winds its way between Windermere and Ullswater.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
