    Well appointed kitchen, comfortable lounge and very comfortable bed. We had a very enjoyable stay. We do however have some small points to note which reduced the overall rating: 1. No light in the hallway. We had to use a flashlight feature on our mobile phone to see the keypad on the door. The owners should install a PIR light. We had the same problem when we reached our apartment door. 2. Light in the hall between lounge and the bedroom wasn't working and doorknob to the lounge kept coming off the door. 3. We were very disappointed that the property had no separate bin for recycling, the instructions told us to take recycling to Ambleside - not acceptable. 4. There was a lift but it couldn't be used, a maintenance man told us they had removed access in case somebody got stuck. Lugging heavy backs and provisions up two floors when we arrived and left was a real effort.

The property

This luxury apartment with its wonderful views will really attract those looking for something rather special in a beautiful Lake District setting, one of only ten delightful apartments in this magnificent Victorian residence formerly the Ambleside Vicarage. Guests will have the best of both worlds - the village centre is only a short walk away and yet the setting is very peaceful with an 'away from it all' feel, hard to better in the centre of the Lake District National Park. Several acres of beautiful wooded grounds, with a tennis court and places to sit outside, make the most of the views. The walkers amongst you will enjoy the climbs and rambles, which can be taken from the door. Accommodation: Situated on the second floor, Loughrigg Suite is reached by the sweeping staircase from the main door. Front door into the hallway leading through to the very attractive and comfortable sitting/dining room (40" Samsung LED flatscreen, full Sky package, DVD, Wi-Fi broadband, Bose soundlink bluetooth speaker and PS2). This room has interesting roof lines, exposed beams and the notable feature of turret windows - the whole of the Fairfield Horseshoe can be seen with the Vale of Rydal in the valley below. There are a few steps from the sitting room down into the kitchen, which is open plan and attractively fitted. It also features some beams, a breakfast bar and another fine view from the window. There are two bedrooms - the double room has its own shower and basin (22" Samsung LED flatscreen). The second smaller single bedroom suitable for a child, has a velux window, which provides excellent views to wake up to. The main bathroom is fully tiled (bath with shower over, basin and wc). The property is very stylishly furnished, with high quality fabrics and fittings and an excellent range of facilities. Co-ordinating colours throughout give a lovely light and relaxing feel. Fitted carpets. Outside: Shared grounds extending to several acres with garden seats to take in the views and a long private driveway down to the main gates. Shops and village amenities and lake half a mile approximately. Private parking for one car. Hard surface tennis court. Garage number 9 for bike storage.

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.
