  • "Had a lovely stay here."

    Well situated in Ambleside With off road parking. The property was very clean. Maybe a little dated in places but lovely powerful shower and spotlessly clean bathroom. Bed is sadly just a double so felt a bit small for us but the mattress was comfortable. We didn’t take advantage of the gym pass because we hiked so much but it was nice to have as an option Great to have a welcome basket with some local goodies in it. All in all a very nice stay that I would recommend to anyone and would visit again.

    Thankyou for your lovely comments and i will pass them on to my cleaner Would just like to say the bed is a 5 foot king size sorry you felt it was a bit small you possibly have a super kingsize at home look forward to seeing you again next year Property Owner

  • "Excellent location with safe off road parking directly adjacent to property and only a 2 -3 minute walk to the centre of Ambleside."

    Property has everything you need, clean with good lay out, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it would be difficult to suggest any negatives. Would highly recommend and we would have no hesitation in stopping here again.

  • "Absolutely fabulous cottage to stay in for a break (or preferably for ever)."

    Every aspect of the cottage was excellent - comfort, cleanliness, spacious, amenities, facilities and all top specification. The rear garden was a particular delight on the warm evenings after a long day on the fells followed by a meal and drinks in Ambleside. The location of the cottage was perfect, not in the heart of town, but on the edge, two minutes walk into the centre. The town of Ambleside itself has much to offer - pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops, parks, places if interest - so much that we found a week was not long enough. Our whole week was superb, a great combination of a top class cottage in a brilliant location.

    Thankyou for your lovely feed back and glad you had a good holiday and we look forward to seeing you again very soon, Property Owner

The property

Resting within a quiet location in the Cumbrian town of Ambleside is Afton, a delightful ground-floor apartment welcoming two guests.

Enjoying a rural setting within the Lake District National Park and just a stone's throw away from Lake Windermere, whilst benefiting from a private driveway, a homely living space, and a rear garden, the apartment delivers the ideal base for a couple's retreat, enveloped by hidden gems and nature-filled walking trails.

Park up and climb the steps, entering the inviting living/dining room, offering the perfect space to relax after a day of hiking and exploring, featuring plush recliner sofas, a gas fire, Smart TV, and a dining table to enjoy meals for two.

Head into the kitchen to fulfil your self-catered needs, where you'll find an array of culinary appliances, including a double electric oven and dishwasher.

Venture outside for some fresh air, where you can also dine, whilst taking in your peaceful surrounding, before returning indoors for a refresh in the en-suite, featuring both a bath and walk-in shower.

Rest in the king-size bedroom before awakening to an agenda filled with attractions, with the chance to trek up Wansfell Pike, tour Rydal Cave, visit Stock Ghyll Force, or discover The Bridge House and its heritage.

Travelling towards Grasmere, enjoy a stroll alongside the waterfall walkways, explore Wordsworth Grasmere, the former home of renowned poet William Wordsworth, or enjoy a tour of National Trust - Allan Bank and Grasmere, a Grade II listed Georgian villa, steep in elegance and history.

Reaching Lake Windermere, take advantage of the bustling area, dotted with attractions, with the opportunity to visit Hill Top Beatrix Potter House, summit Claife Heights, or opt for a cultural afternoon at National Trust - Wray Castle.

Keswick is also a place of interest, recommended to visit on your travels, where you can explore Keswick Museum and Derwent Pencil Museum, or head to the beautiful landscape of Derwent Water Jetties.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 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.
