Ref: 1321

  • Sleeps: 9
  • Changeover: Friday


Highfield House is a beautifully appointed substantial Victorian property which sleeps nine in five bedrooms. Located in the popular village of Ambleside which offers a great array of shops, pubs, restaurants and a cinema.  It is also a ten-minute walk from Lake Windermere. To the rear there is a furnished patio and a good-sized lawned area with garden furniture. A perfect peaceful place to relax on a summer's evening with a glass of wine. Highfield House has been lovingly restored by the current owners to create a superb very spacious property that is ideal for friends and families - the den / games room will appeal to children of all ages. Rare for Ambleside is the provision of ample private parking for 5 cars. Whatever the season, this property is perfect; from al-fresco living to family meals in the superb dining/kitchen area or cosy days by the fire (can you see our cuddly sloths??).

Accommodation: Highfield House is spread over four floors.  The front door opens to a spacious hallway that runs the ground floor through to the rear door that opens onto the patio and garden.

To the ground floor is a spacious lounge with a large bay window which allows the light to flood in and is furnished with comfortable sofas which are arranged around a large TV screen and ornate open fire place. To the rear of the house, the modern kitchen has all you may need (with smart black granite worktops) which complement the fitted units. The dining area has a large table and is ideal for family occasions or social dinners with friends.

The lower ground floor has a fantastic family den/games room, a great room to escape to read a paper or a book, or for the kids to play on the PlayStation or watch a DVD on the large TV.  A convenient additional WC is located on this floor.

On the first floor is a superb family bathroom with roll top bath, corner shower cubicle, basin and WC. Choose from two well-presented king size bedrooms, both with TV's and one with en-suite bathroom with bath and shower over, WC and basin. On the second floor there are a further three well-presented bedrooms all with en-suite shower rooms. The first is presented with king size bed, the second can be made up either with king size or twin beds (please specify on booking), and finally there is a pretty single bedroom.
