The unique romantic waterfall setting of this detached Lakeland cottage makes it perfect for that special occasion. Spacious yet cosy and intriguingly designed on three levels, it sits high above the beck, nestling into the side of Stockghyll Gorge and savouring the charm of the water cascading over the rocks below with woodland on the opposite bank.
Set within a select, beautifully renovated Bobbin Mill development on the edge of Ambleside village, it is within easy reach of cafes, shops, restaurants, pubs, cinemas, the lake and many walks which can be undertaken without using the car.

Despite the air of escape in this romantic Ambleside cottage, you'll find yourselves only a stroll away from the Lake District's most cosmopolitan village centre.
Located on the northern shore of Lake Windermere and offering Windermere Lake Cruises from nearby Waterhead Pier, Ambleside is a delightful place to while away a romantic Lake District holiday.
On the high street, you'll find contemporary shops, lazy cafes and tempting delis for stocking up the kitchen.
There are so many options for a special evening out. For a special treat, try The Glass House - a fabulous restaurant in an interesting historic building. Enjoy a theatre dinner at Zeffirellis cinema, pizzeria and jazz bar, or choose one of several cosy traditional pubs and sample some Lakeland ale. There's also the option to dine on the lake; Windermere Lake Cruises offer romantic evening buffet cruises with live music.
For exploring or walking in the Lake District National Park, Ambleside is a great place to start. Ditch your car and explore Bowness and Lakeside via the steamer cruises on Lake Windermere. Or take a scenic drive over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass road, leading you to Ullswater with a pub stop for lunch.
