    “We enjoyed our stay very much Our only comment is the boiler is very noisy ( particularly in the twin bedroom) and you can only have a bath in the bathroom as if you shower water goes everywhere.”

    Otherwise we were very happy with the facilities and location

    - Stephen, April 2022

    Thank you for your comments, we will get the noisy boiler investigated. It may have been the extractor fan not been switched off after use. Kind Regards. Merewood Lodge ownet Property Owner

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.

Please note care needed in the wild garden as ground uneven, stepping stones and gravel. The summerhouse is owner use only.
