The village offers a fantastic range of local shops including those selling local crafts and produce. Waterfall offers every opportunity to explore the Lake District at any time of year with easy access to all the Lake District's most popular villages and attractions however if you prefer to get out and walk there are numerous walks to choose from departing directly from the cottage door! Follow in the footsteps of William Wordsworth and enjoy the walk along the shores of Rydal Water to Grasmere, take in the stunning views from the nearby Loughrigg Fell or Wansfell and for those who want to get out onto the high fells head across the lane and onto the footpath leading to the towering skyline of the Fairfield Horseshoe.

Location This large Ambleside self-catering apartment enjoys a wonderful location; peacefully secluded within its riverside development yet only a short stroll from the centre of Ambleside.

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.
