This romantic, central Lakeland hideaway is a stone’s throw from the heart of picturesque Ambleside village providing a contemporary yet traditional and convenient treat 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 superb views.
Sip a drink on the comfortable window seat and gaze out of the picture window towards Loughrigg Fell. For a cosy night in, relax on the sumptuous, deep-cushioned leather sofa in front of the warming woodburning stove, perfectly set within the exposed stone wall and complimented by the rich oak flooring.
Cooks will delight in this state of the art and well equipped kitchen with its solid wood worktops and limestone tiles, but if a night off is on the menu then the central location of the apartment is perfect for easy eating out. A luxurious bedroom complete with separate dressing room only adds to the romance of this sought-after Lake District bolthole and not forgetting the luxurious slate - tiled bathroom perfect for long soaks after a hard day on the fells.

The slate-tiled luxurious bathroom is perfect.
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 Ambleside - such as the Glass House 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.
