    Thank you for your feedback-I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and the facilities in and around Wetherlam. Regarding the parking, there are allocated spaces for each property and Wetherlam has two large spaces. We often park three cars to the right of the front door (at a squeeze) and have always parked two easily, including our large Volvo. The garden is capacious (3 acre plot) and has benches and chairs in different areas for guests to use, as well as lawn areas for picnics. Pricing is constantly under review with Sykes and is managed by the agency. Owner relations

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
