    “Location and facilities were great - but we've never stayed in such a tired and unloved property.”

    Generally the apartment had everything we needed, but it was a depressing place to be with no outdoor space which is a huge shame. There was a lot of wear and tear on carpets and walls. Aside of that, key examples of failure: broken handle on shower door in main bathroom, rusty wall-mounted radiator in main bathroom, dusty/dirty fake flowers in main bathroom, broken drawer front in second bedroom, broken coat hanger on door in second bedroom, cupboard door in front of washing machine did not ...

The property

Millerbeck is simply a wonderful bolt hole situated on the fringes of picturesque Ambleside in a sublime setting at the foot of Loughrigg Fell and only a few minutes stroll through the park over the river to bustling Ambleside centre. Thinking of spending precious time together or socialising with friends in a truly romantic spot with views to die for, then here at Millerbeck you have found it. This first and second floor apartment forms part of this Period Lakeland residence and the breathtaking views will remain with you long after your leave. The shores of Lake Windermere are just a few minutes stroll further. Relaxed sophistication is the theme of the interior; cosy up together by the warming open fire and gaze out through the picture windows. There's plenty of space for sociable meals in, and only a minute's stroll to plenty of evening entertainment. The bedrooms are beautiful, each with a lavish bathroom facility, so escape here, unwind and fall in love with the Lakes. ==Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2; a short flight of steps to enter; entrance hall with cloaks cupboard and space for walking clobber. The lounge / dining room has picture windows and deep cushioned furnishings to relax in by the warming open fire. The modern kitchen is very well equipped and also has a lovely outlook. Upstairs to the two wonderful bedrooms, each with en-suite facility and the master with double ended Jacuzzi bath and separate power shower cubicle.Location A holiday bolt hole in Ambleside provides a perfect base for a Lake District holiday - you'll be surrounded by breathtaking scenery and close to Lake Windermere, but you'll also enjoy the convenience of a contemporary village community on your doorstep. Ambleside is located on the northern shores of Lake Windermere; it's easily accessible via the very scenic A591 road. The village is a popular base for walking in the Lake District, but it's also one of the most sophisticated villages in terms of shopping and evening entertainment. There are some excellent restaurants in Ambleside, two quirky cinema venues and a range of cosy traditional pubs where Lakeland ale is the favoured tipple! We also recommend exploring some of the excellent country pubs near Ambleside, such as the famous Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant - a must for special occasions and only a short drive or taxi ride away.

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.
