  • “The house is absolutely fine - comfy sofas and nice bathrooms - but the listing is a bit misleading as it fronts the main road into Ambleside which has heavy traffic all day - the kitchen is large and a lovely room but lacks some fairly basic items such as tongs and serving bowls - I did appreciate the very high quality pans (very unusual) and the huge fridge / freezer - there are lovely views over the water meadows from the lounge and it is a nice walk to the village (on pavements) the property is well located for pretty much all of the Lake District - the showers didn’t look promising but there was plenty of hot water and very good water pressure - my main issues are (1) the heating is set and I quote - to provide background warmth - it at 17.”

    9 degrees - using plug in radiators and the feature fire is fine if you are in the room but doesn’t warm the house - obvs not a problem all year but we had a chilly wet week in October (2) that I find it unique in all the companies that I rent through that there is no basic welcome pack - (3) the towels were certainly well loved and very small although clean ...

The property

This contemporary and sophisticated country cottage is found in a dreamy spot just off the absolute heart of picturesque and bustling Ambleside village overlooking the River Rothay. If you yearn for sumptuous relaxation, surrounded by all Ambleside has to offer with that all important "wow" factor, then we are sure you will love this Old Coach House. Step foot inside and be instantly charmed by 21st century chic style, which blends so effortlessly with Lakeland life. Two or three couples or a family can spread out here, relax and soak up those three fabulous bathroom facilities together with the wonderful open vaulted living space incorporating true picture windows. Only a stone's throw away is Ambleside, alive with excellent restaurants and bars to tempt you out and here, walks are in abundance straight from your doorstep. This outwardly 'olde-worlde' cottage is designed to provide a perfect holiday at any time of the year and help recharge those batteries. == Accommodation in detail Wander through the garden and gaze towards Loughrigg Fell or over to the meandering River Rothay; entrance hall, a spacious light entrance and then upstairs to that amazing living space complete with vaulted ceiling, adorning beams and picture windows, this is a room to truly relax in and plan the day ahead by the fire. On this level is a king-size bedroom with overlooking the beautiful garden and with full en-suite bathroom. Downstairs again to the large kitchen/ dining room, luxuriously appointed and with a very generous supply of items to satisify the most ambitious cooks and an oven fit for 'Nigella' herself. There are three further bedrooms, one king boasting a luxurious shower facility; the double bedroom and a single bedroom (for occasional use) share a luxurious bathroom with separate WC too. The garden has won local awards, it is so beautiful and a great place on sunny days and sometimes it is hard to imagine you are so very close to picturesque and bustling Ambleside.

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.
