  • “Excellent apartment furnished to a very high standard.”

    ...

    Fantastic views over Lake Windermere and Waterhead. Great location for walks from the apartment and boat trips on Lake Windermere. 15 min walk into Ambleside for food, either restaurants or mini supermarkets. No 'local' food shop in Waterhead, but there is/are restaurant(s) opposite the apartment. Rental price took advantage of the shortage of staycation properties available, we could go on a one week 4 or 5* cruise from Southampton for the same price!! However, it suited our needs, this time:-)) The Summary details need adjusting as there is only one en-suite bathroom and one bedroom with a bathroom directly opposite the corridor. A couple of minor maintenance issues that did not affect the holiday. The shower and bath do drain very slowly and can cause the shower tray to overflow, despite the notice stating the waste falloff being the reason, they both need a good dose of Mr Muscle Shower Drain Gel (much better than alternative brands available locally). We have a very similar en-suite with the same problem and Mr Muscle solved it.

The property

This is simply a luxurious and wonderful Lakeland hideaway with arguably one of the very best views anywhere in the Lake District. The spectacular panoramic lake and fell views have to be seen to be fully appreciated from this exclusive first floor apartment which forms part of this select development at Waterhead on the fringe of Ambleside. Waterhead boasts two delightful restaurant / bars overlooking the lake together with a few shops and as its name suggests there are steamers regularly coming and going from the head of Windermere Lake to take you to a variety of destinations. Ambleside village is but a short stroll away teeming with excellent restaurants, local shops and pubs to tempt you out and walks are in abundance straight from the door including Jenkins Crag, Todd Crag and Loughrigg Fell. The beautifully landscaped two acre gardens circumscribe these apartments and lead to many vantage points, with strategically placed seating to further enjoy the wondrous scenery. Situated on the first floor, this sumptuous and sophisticated retreat can be approached by stairs or lift making it an ideal holiday home for young and old at any time of the year. The ever changing colours and scenery really do stay with you long after you leave and once you have sipped your first G & T on the balcony watching the yachts come and go and the bustling activities below it may be more difficult than you think to ever leave. Pure Grace itself has been prepared and presented to the highest of standards and we think you will agree that this spacious apartment is sheer luxury. Take our virtual tour of the property by clicking here == Accommodation in detail A private parking space is just outside with further spaces available; a security entry system and choice of stairs to the first floor or a lift. A private entrance leads into a spacious hallway and space for walking gear; open into the sophisticated open plan living space and catch your first sight of that wonderful view, wander out onto your balcony and gaze out over Lake Windermere to the magnificent mountains. Sumptuous furnishings to relax in and admire the views and dining also overlooking the lake. A contemporary Mark Wilkinson kitchen also looks out over the view and has everything you could wish for all wrapped up in granite – perfect. The two king size bedrooms are straight out of a luxury hotel and each with its own bathroom facility. The two facilities have designer fitments, ideal for long soaks or invigorating hosing's after a day on the fells. Outside the gardens are a real feature and yet another place to admire the scenery. Location This super-stylish Ambleside holiday bolt-hole takes a fantastic location; only 50 metres from Lake Windermere's shore and Windermere Lake Cruises at Waterhead Pier. The property is located on the main route through the Lakes making it ideally positioned for travel to all the sights of the Lake District. It is also just a very short stroll from the centre of Ambleside village. On the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is one of the Lake District's most cosmopolitan communities. You'll lose yourself in sophisticated shops, sample local produce in cafes and delis, and try acclaimed Lake District restaurants - favoured even by Gordon Ramsay! Surrounded by Lakeland Fells and walking routes, Ambleside village is a traditional gathering point for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. You'll pick up all sorts of tips in the expert outdoor shops, and find route guides available at the Ambleside Tourist Information Centre. If you're looking for historic interest or a bit of culture, there's plenty to see. The village's much-photographed 'Bridge House' is one of the oldest and smallest houses in the Lake District. The Roman fort Galava is just hundreds of yards from this property, and poet William Wordsworth's former family home can be visited nearby at Rydal Mount & Gardens. With the A591 providing easy access to historic Grasmere and beyond, you'll find endless Lake District attractions within reach. Our tip is to take a Sunday drive from Ambleside over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass - your scenic route to Ullswater with lunch on the shores of yet another picture postcard lake.

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.
