The property

Kirkley Bank is a great family or couples property close to Ambleside and superb walking routes from the door. There’s plenty of space, fantastic gardens and views of the lush countryside from this peacefully situated cottage. The all-important wood burning stove completes the cosy lounge with a great picture window. A separate good sized dining room is perfectly positioned between the lounge and the modern kitchen. Or why not take a break from cooking and enjoy the acclaimed Drunken Duck Inn, which is just 1 mile away along a country lane. This spacious property is a paradise for walkers or lovers of Lakeland countryside. On warmer days, a delightful furnished patio and extensive garden has made Kirkley Bank one of our most popular cottages . Please be aware there is a shallow stream and steps in the garden, so be vigilant with children. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 4 cars and a small day boat. Wander through the garden to the entrance. The living room is cosy and bright with wonderful views, sumptuous sofas and woodburning stove. Separate dining room with large dining table and patio doors to the scenic sun terrace. The well-equipped kitchen also leads to the garden, via the boot room. There is also a ground floor shower room. Upstairs to the 3 bedrooms; 2 king-size double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom. On this floor is the fresh white bathroom with shower over bath. Location With all the charms of a large rural Lake District holiday home, this fabulous property is perfect for a walking holiday with so many routes to explore from the door. But it's also only the shortest of journeys to enjoy all the attractions of Ambleside, Hawkshead and the lake itself with access via the nearby National Trust property, Wray Castle (seasonal ferry service here too). The route to the Drunken Duck is a country lane (no pavement or lighting, so carry a torch)

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.
