The apartment is set in the heart of extensive woodland, forests and fields, enabling you to take in the true feel of country living. Only two thirds of a mile from the famous Drunken Duck pub, and only a couple of miles drive to Ambleside. With fell walking and mountains straight from the door and Lake Windermere at Waterhead you will be spoiled for choice. Sunny Brow Farm is comfortably located between Ambleside and Hawkshead both just a 5 minute drive. Holistic therapies, yoga and relaxing massage sessions are available to book onsite to add that extra special touch to your holiday. Sunny Brow's wholesome cuisine is available upon request for breakfast and dinner.

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.

Note: Holistic therapies, yoga sessions and massage treatments can be booked onsite
