    “The house is well equipped, plenty of room and a fantastic location.”

    The only negative is that the house is on a main road and can be quite noisy

The property

A lovely Lakeland hideaway being part of a traditional colour washed gentleman's residence located at the foot of Loughrigg Fell - on the outskirts of Ambleside. Taking its name from the rocky outcrop behind the 400 year old property Todd Crag House will delight. This two bedroom, two bathroom cottage apartment has been carefully designed to marry the original features with current expectations. Soft furnishings and tasteful palettes have been carefully chosen for your comfort. Although only a two bedroom property it is surprisingly large with a spacious lounge, fully fitted dining kitchen, two bedrooms with king size beds and views of the fells, a bathroom with powerful shower and a further en-suite shower room. This property has a fabulous second west facing sitting room with bay window and rosewood dining table for 4. In addition this property has use of the garden to the rear with garden furniture and views of the fells. Christmas 21/12 - 28/12/21 New Year 28/12/21 - 4/1/22 Accommodation in detail Private parking immediately outside the property for two cars. Two elegant lounges with soft furnishings. Victorian fireplace and window seats. Natural oak kitchen with slate floor and dining for 4 with views of the garden. Two comfortable bedrooms with king size beds and fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has an en-suite facility and there is a separate bathroom. Mature gardens with views of the fells and the Lake. == Todd Crag House lies away from the bustle of Ambleside village yet still only a short walk to all its facilities and entertainments. The property is found within the small hamlet of Clappersgate, just to the west of Ambleside village and on the way to the Langdale Valley. Only a 10-15 minutes' walk away, Ambleside is historic and attractive. The popular village and has grown to become one of the Lake District's most sophisticated communities without losing its traditional charm. Excellent cafes, quality shops and boutiques, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and even two interesting cinema venues form part of the village centre, which is also home to a Roman fort and many interesting historic buildings. For a picturesque cruise on Lake Windermere (a must during your stay!), wander to Waterhead Pier just outside Ambleside village centre. From there, traditional 'steamers' depart regularly to Bowness and Lakeside. In summer, evening cruises are also available with live music and dining! Clappersgate also takes a divine location for those in the Lakes to walk and explore wilder landscapes. A walk or short drive leads to the Langdale Valley, renowned for its dramatic scenery and remote feel. Coniston Water and numerous renowned hikes are also easily reached. There are many excellent country pubs in the areas surrounding Clappersgate and Ambleside. We recommend making the most of the Drunken Duck Inn; one of the Lake District's finest pub restaurants and within enviably easy reach of Todd Crag House.

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.
