Stairs to the large galleried double bedroom with king sized bed and pitched roof beams. The dining kitchen is off the lounge - it is modern and beautifully fitted with an excellent range of equipment - this is a real 'cook's kitchen'. Inner door through to the garage where there is a utility area with drying space for your wet outdoor gear, and laundry facilities. The luxury ground floor bathroom (bath with shower over, vanity unit and wc) - makes a welcome sight after a day on the fells! The property is spacious, comfortable and stylish with carefully co-ordinated colours and an interesting collection of pictures and fitted carpets with contrasting rugs - this is truly a hideaway for all seasons.

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.
