Situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the heart of Ambleside Village, Gale Coach House has been carefully re-created by the current owners to offer high quality accommodation, in a great location and to make the most of the beautiful views from the first floor.
Laid out as an 'upside down house' the bright and airy first floor lounge and open plan kitchen take full of advantage of the south facing views across the rooftops to Claife Heights and the Coniston Fells beyond with large floor to ceiling picture windows opening onto a glass fronted balcony spanning the width of the cottage.
Stepping back outside the cottage is ideally placed to enjoy walks from the door to Wansfell or Loughrigg Fell, to explore the bustling village of Ambleside with a great collection of shops, bars and restaurants. For those seeking more adventurous challenges Fairfield Horseshoe and the Langdale Fells are all within easy reach, mountain biking fans will head to the nearby Grizedale Forest and Lake Windermere is within walking distance; ideal for canoeing or of course a romantic evening cruise!
Accommodation in detail
Originally built as the Coach House for Gale House, the property is approached through the gateway to Gale House. One private parking space is available to the front of the property.
The front door opens onto a spacious hallway with ample coat hanging and boot storage and the feature oak staircase leads to the first floor living accommodation.
The spacious open plan kitchen dinner features large floor to ceiling picture windows open directly to a wide, glass fronted balcony that offer stunning views. The lounge also features a cosy log burning stove, Smart TV, comfortable sofa and dining table. The quality kitchen is finished to a high standard and very well equipped with everything you could need during your stay.
Returning to the ground floor; the bedroom is well finished and the king size double bed is a welcome retreat at the end of the day and is complemented with a high quality bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, basin and WC.
To the side of the property, accessed via the balcony, there is a secluded elevated patio area, ideal for everything from enjoying the morning paper with a cup of coffee or an alfresco dinner and a glass of wine.
Ambleside village is one of the Lake District's gems; traditional yet cosmopolitan, friendly and full of quirky Cumbrian surprises. An excellent range of local shops provide everything you need to stock up the kitchen, a wide range of excellent restaurants are available to try (including those on the stunning shores of Lake Windermere), Lakeland pubs to wind down in and an excellent cinema too. The main attraction is of course Lake Windermere's shore, and within a few minutes you'll be walking on to Waterhead Pier and taking a leisurely lake cruise to Bowness or Lakeside.
For day trips throughout the Lakes, Ambleside is a great place to start. The A591 leads north to Rydal Water, Grasmere, Coniston and Langdale, or south to Troutbeck, Windermere and Bowness.
