Squirrel Bank

Ambleside, Ambleside/Troutbeck

Ref: 1078

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Changeover: Friday


Good properties for two are always sought after and we feel that Squirrel Bank will make a popular venue for couples.  The property was fully refurbished in 2017 to provide a contemporary and spacious apartment, ideally located in the quiet residential area known as 'The Falls'.  Ambleside's many facilities are within easy walking distance down the hill - excellent local shopping, two cinemas, bowling, tennis and mini golf - no need to use the car when eating out, or visiting the pub, or for the many days walking that are to be enjoyed in the area. The Fairfield Horseshoe, Wansfell and Loughrigg Fell are immediately to hand whilst for easier rambles you could explore 'under Loughrigg' towards Rydal or walk through Ambleside village to the head of Windermere for cruises on the lake.

Accommodation: Squirrel Bank takes up all the upper floor of this Lakeland stone building - formerly part of the bobbin mill, which stood on the banks of Stock Ghyll beck. A few steps lead up to the covered entrance porch and front door. Small inner hall has stairs to the upper floor and main hallway.
Comfortable sitting/dining room has a high-pitched ceiling and feature window offering panoramic views across to Loughrigg (large smart TV with Freesat/on demand, DVD, Bluetooth speaker and free Wi-Fi). Door through to contemporary fitted kitchen. There is one large bedroom with king-size bed and built-in cupboards and a spacious fitted modern bathroom (P-shaped bath with mains shower over, basin, wc and heated towel rail).

Gas fired central heating keeps the property cosy in any season. Fitted carpets and karndean flooring throughout.  Furnishings are of a contemporary style with co-ordinating decor and fabrics.

Outside: Undercover parking for one car in a named space beneath the property. Ambleside village centre is about 1/2 mile distant down pretty, pedestrian Peggy Hill. Walks from the door.

Property Reviews

Brilliant property. Well equipped. Clean. Great location.Mr Aitken
We have been coming to the Lakes for years and this is one if the best accommodations we have stayed in. It is in an ideal location and we would definitely come back again. Can't wait to return again soon.
Fabulous property for a couple and their dog to stay – very central for amenities and local walking and further afield. Congratulations to the new owners Nanette and Nick who have equipped Squirrel Bank with quality products and to a high spec.
This is our third time at Squirrel Bank but by far the best due to the excellent renovation that has taken place. We love the location and there are so many walks from the door - well done to the new owners, this is a really lovely place to stay.
