    “Really loved the property, well laid out and comfortable.”

    Lovely bed, sofas, TV etc, the extra bits like this made the difference. Only point we had is that we would have appreciated some info regarding what to do with recycling and general rubbish, days and how to segregate etc.

The property

This gorgeous cosy & classy central Lakeland treat is within the heart of picturesque Ambleside village providing a contemporary, romantic and convenient hideaway for any special occasion. Completed in traditional Lakeland cottage style, but step inside and you'll fall in love with the clean and crisp presentation and those breath-taking views. Once found over an original wool outlet for Ambleside it is easy to see why this special place is warm and cosy! With private ground floor access to the private roof terrace entry, now alongside and above a local florist shop. Gaze out from the balconied roof terrace and picture windows over interesting rooftops of this beautiful village where the surrounding mountains appear so close you can almost reach out and touch them. Character contrasts sumptuous, deep-cushioned furnishings and crisp traditional walls which carry throughout, the woodburning stove provides for cosy nights in, cooks will be delighted in this state of the art kitchen, and the central location for easy eating out. A staircase leads to the luxurious bedroom, wonderful views to Loughrigg Fell can be seen through roof lights set into the vaulted ceiling, adding to the romance of this sought-after Lake District treat and not forgetting the luxurious shower room and free standing bedroom bath perfect for long soaks after a hard day on the fells. Accommodation in detail Park right outside to unload and a parking permit is provided for car parking 100yards away. External staircase to the first floor and roof terrace with glass balcony surround, a great place to unwind and watch the world go by. This living space is open plan and so full of interesting features including the cosy woodburner and patio doors, sumptuous furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. On this level is the power sower room and then upstairs to the bedroom with free standing bath. Location Ambleside is a popular Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Attractive with its historic Lakeland stone buildings and winding streets, the village has grown to become one of the most sophisticated destinations in the Lake District. In the village centre, you'll find a wide range of shops from boutiques to expert outdoor clothing stores. Classy cafes are around every corner, so there are plenty of opportunities to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Some of the Lake District's finest restaurants are found in and around Ambelside - such as the Fulling Mill in the village centre, or the famed Drunken Duck Inn just a short drive away at Outgate. Of course, it's a must to enjoy Lake Windermere during your stay. Just a short stroll outside Ambleside village centre is Waterhead Pier, where Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to ferry passengers the full length of the lake. The traditional 'steamers' are a wonderfully romantic way to explore, with no need to use a car, and stopping off at Bowness or Lakeside. For a taste of the wilder Lake District, take a short drive to Coniston or the breathtaking Langdale Valley - both within easy reach. Or, head up onto Kirkstone Pass - a high and dramatic road that winds its way between Windermere and Ullswater.

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.
