  • "We have stayed in many rental properties over the years and this one was one of the very best."

    The quality of the furnishings was excellent and the home felt very well cared for. We had a very comfortable week and will hopefully return in the future. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to our friends. The location is very peaceful with a lovely outlook from the lounge and being just a few minutes walk from Ambleside centre was a real bonus - despite the steep hill! We did not need to use the car at anytime during our stay, plenty of walks direct from the property or within a short bus ride - we loved it

  • "A beautiful property with top quality fixtures and fittings."

    Nothing has been overlooked. The owners provided the best selection of maps and walking guides I have experienced in holiday accommodation. Beechside is ideally located in a quiet spot next to the ghyll but only a short stroll takes you into the centre of Ambleside. I will definitely return to this accommodation.

  • "Absolutely first class in every respect."

    Incredibly well furnished & equipped, they've thought of everything - even the snow shovel got some use after our unexpected blizzard! The quality of furnishings & equipment is excellent - from the appliances to the crockery, from the sofas to the toilet roll. Everything & everywhere was spotlessly clean too so you literally could just "make yourself at home" as they encourage you to do. We've stayed in many holiday lets & without doubt, this is the best we've stayed in quality wise. The owners even got in touch to make sure we were OK after the blizzard hit. Little things like that go a long way and it was very much appreciated. Thank you Beechside & see you again!

  • "The apartment was absolutely beautiful with everything and more that you could need - we have already started looking at dates to return in the new year!"

    Everything in the apartment is very high quality from the bedding to the cups! Internet was brilliant and the welcome wine was a very nice touch! Only a five minute walk down the bank into Ambleside Thankyou for a wonderful weekend!

  • "Beechside is a fabulous property."

    Extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. I have stayed in many holiday properties but this has to be one of the very best. An extremely good selection of kitchen tools and equipment along with cleaning goods which makes keeping on top of chores a breeze. A lovely welcome pack. All the rooms were warm and comfortable. Shower in the downstairs ensuite was incredible. This is a well-maintained and very comfortable home from home. We loved our stay and would love to come back for another stay.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. We love Beechside too and it is a genuine pleasure to be able to share it with others. Delighted that you had such a comfortable stay and hope to see you back here again soon. Property Owner

  • "Enjoyed our stay at Beechside, providing us with everything we needed."

    Although we ate out most evenings the kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable as was showers. The upstairs hose on shower had a slight spilt. Some of the doors were nit closing probably and we had trouble with front door lock, kept turning and not locking so had to keep fiddling with it until it did. One of the dining chairs had a slight mark to the front of it and we noticed a staple of some kind started to come through the leather, this may need looking at to avoid anyone getting injured. Also one of the mugs had a chip to the handled. We had a lovely time.

    Thank you for all these points, it's really useful to hear how we can improve things further for other guests. Delighted to hear that you had a lovely time. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed in many holiday properties around Ambleside and this one;Beachside really does come top of the list."

    Very clean, modern with great facilities. It is obvious that much thought has gone into providing guests with very simple but useful little touches in order to make the stay so comfortable and enjoyable, and not even the unfortunate collapse of the single bed my son was using would make us drop out ratings. When the bed problem arose we had instant communication and help from Lakelovers. We will certainly recommend to others and we will be back!

    Thank you for your kind words and delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Really pleased to know that in working with LakeLovers we were able to assist you rapidly with this extraordinary occurrence! Look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful location and amazing property."

    Had everything you could possibly need with lovely welcome gifts. Location was great with only a short walk into Ambleside. Will definitely be back as miss it already!

    We are really pleased you enjoyed staying in Beechside as much as we do. How right you are - it is surprising that the quiet location, in the trees and by the ghyll, is only a short walk away from the restaurants and shops of Ambleside. Thank you for being great guests, and hope that you return soon! Property Owner

    We were thankful for the copious kitchen supplies, from herbs to cling film, the rainy day supplies (books, DVDs & games), and the thoughtful info folder. We really enjoyed our stay and the owners are very professional.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback. It is always a pleasure to hear what our guests value and to know that they have enjoyed their stay . We hope that you will keep Beechside in mind for any futures visits to the Lakes! Property Owner

Enjoying a superb location within the Lake District National Park and just paces away from the famous Lake Windermere, Beechside is a fantastic choice for couples or a family of five.

The property benefits from an off-road parking space, a veranda where you can dine alfresco on warmer evenings, and a balcony with seating, a perfect spot for enjoying your morning coffee with a view!

On the ground floor, you will find a fully-equipped kitchen for cooking up your best dishes, ready to impress your guests at the dining table for six, before retiring to the plush sofas to watch a much-loved show on the Smart TV with DVD player.

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.
