Aptly named, this contemporary cottage apartment looks straight towards Loughrigg Fell from its central setting. Found opposite Hayes Garden World, adjacent to Lake Road, only a short stroll from the absolute heart of Ambleside and the ferries at Waterhead, we think this is a perfect base for a holiday at any time of the year. Modern and sophisticated sum up this little hide and if you yearn for somewhere beautiful on the doorstep of Lakeland’s most picturesque and visited village – look no further.
Ambleside itself is quite the cosmopolitan place to be, stocked full of excellent restaurants, local shops and pubs to tempt you out in the evening, while walking is in abundance straight from your doorstep.
Accommodation in detail
A small entrance hall has a staircase leading you to the first floor with an open plan lounge/dining room providing lovely views, sumptuous furnishings, warming modern fire, large LCD TV and a very well equipped kitchen which opens onto the living room. Upstairs again to the top floor with arched ceilings and even better views. The two double bedrooms are beautifully furnished and the bathroom is fresh and modern. The property comes complete with wifi.
Nestled on the northern shores of Lake Windermere at the heart of the Lakes, Ambleside is a charming historic village that has grown to become one of the most vibrant destinations in the region. Part of Ambleside's appeal is its location; enjoying the tranquility and activity of Lake Windermere's shores (lake cruises depart just outside the village centre), but also the dramatic backdrop of our Lakeland Fells and mountains (Ambleside is renowned as a hub for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts). It's easy to see why so many return year after year and why so many long to make their home here!
In the village centre, explore tempting cafes and a wide range of shops - everything from local craft to expert outdoor clothing. Ambleside is home to two cinema venues and several acclaimed Lake District restaurants - along with the wonderful country pubs in the surrounding area you'll be spoilt for choice. Special evenings out or romantic occasions, all are catered for within the village centre.
Within walking distance of Ambleside village centre is Waterhead Pier; the departure point for Windermere Lake Cruises. With regular departures throughout the day, you'll find the elegant 'steamers' or smaller launches a perfect way to explore without a car. The boats travel the full length of the lake, with stops at Bowness and Lakeside. The property has a useful local council (SLDC) parking permit for both the adjacent car park and many other local car parks - very handy for your days out in the area.
