  • Helen

    “Since making the Booking my mobility had got worse so I did have trouble getting into the shower because I struggled to put one of my legs over the side of the bath.”

    I had to have help in the bathroom. That was the only issue with the property. Everything else was perfect.

The property

A well appointed ground floor apartment with a delightful holiday feel in the ever popular residential area of 'The Falls' just on the outskirts of Ambleside and yet within easy walking distance of the village centre. The property takes it name from the waters of Stock Ghyll which bound 'The Falls' tumbling down the valley on their way to Lake Windermere. The location offers many opportunities for walking in glorious scenery together with a varied choice of pubs, shops and restaurants, just down the hill. Babbling Brook is an ideal property for a family holiday, there are plenty of activities close-by for children of varying ages such as mini-golf, tennis, cycling, watersports and a good cinema. Accommodation: The property is on one level, there is only one step at the front door and a shallow step at the back. Front door into inner hallway with useful cloak cupboard, then leads into the comfortable sitting/dining room (flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD) with attractive bay window. Newly fitted kitchen June 2019 has door to outside and onto the small patio. There are two bedrooms, one bedroom with useful built-in wardrobes and king-size bed and one twin room with 2' 6" single beds. Fully tiled family bathroom (bath with shower over, basin and wc) completed with heated flooring. Hardwood flooring throughout, with rugs in the bedrooms and gas central heating and hot water. Outside: Small patio area outside the kitchen door with bistro style table and chairs. Private parking for one car in a named space. NOTE; Sorry no room for a cot

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

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.
