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
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.
