The property

This magnificent three-story apartment, Dixon Court, is located in the centre of Ambleside amid the breath-taking surroundings of the Lake District National Park. Dixon Court welcomes twelve guests and their two four-legged companions to enjoy a fun-filled getaway in this beautiful area of Cumbria. It has an open-plan living area that is perfect for entertaining and spending quality time with loved ones, a wood-burning stove, and parking in the car park next door. From the courtyard, ascend to the first-floor terrace entrance area. Cross the threshold to the first floor, where you'll find an ample cloaks area with three magnificent bedrooms, including two king-size rooms and a family room with twin singles and a bunk bed. This area also includes the main bathroom and another WC where you can get ready for the day in style or freshen up before going to the local bar. And after a day of exploring what better way is there to unwind and relax than in the sauna room. When you ascend the stairs to the second floor, you’ll find a beautifully decorated open-plan sitting area with a Smart TV and a roaring woodburning stove, along with a well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar where you can create and serve delicious dishes. From the open plan kitchen and living area, you’ll find a homely alpine dining area and ski-styled snug with ample seating. From the dining area step out onto the west fasting balcony where you sit and relax whilst taking in the breath-taking views of Loughrigg as the sunsets. This floor is complete with a double bedroom with a vanity basin, a Juliet balcony, and a shower room, a tranquil place to lose yourself in a book or get some rest. As you climb the stairs to the third floor, you'll find a gorgeous attic king-size bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, a living area with a sofa, and a kitchenette area with coffee/tea-making facilities, so you have everything you need in one location. If you can drag yourself away from this magnificent house, start your day with a family-friendly activity at White Platts Miniature Golf or Ambleside climbing wall (just next door) before exploring the centre of Ambleside, where there are a plethora of shops, eateries, cafes, and pubs suitable for a filling lunch or tasty treat. Discover Stock Ghyll Force waterfall's breath-taking scenery just outside your door, or travel to The Bridge House, a peculiar building from the 17th century that looks out over the River Rothay. The town is a fantastic base to explore the eastern fells in the Lake District, many walks start from Ambleside, short, long, high and low, which means that it is a fantastic option to base yourself in the Lakes. If you’re planning a muddy hike with your four-legged friend, why not book into the ground floor dog grooming parlour for a Shampooch. You can try your hand at a variety of water sports, including paddleboarding and kayaking, at the renowned Lake Windermere, which is only a short drive away. If you'd rather explore history and literature, visit Wray Castle or relive your childhood at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. Why not book into one of Ambleside’s Michelin guide restaurants many of which are a short walk from the property. You'll never run out of things to do and see in this area because Orrest Head Viewpoint, Rydal Mount and Gardens, and Wordsworth Grasmere are all within easy driving distance. Visit Dixon Court at any time of year for a special retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
