The property

This romantic cottage has been superbly styled with attention to every detail.

Exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace, leather furniture and well-stocked bookcases filled with games and films, make this the perfect hideaway for a relaxing break or adventure packed holiday. Gale Hill Cottage is reached via an inclined slope with stone steps leading down to the front door.

At the heart of property is the sitting room with its beamed ceiling, and welcoming woodburning stove.

A sumptuous leather sofa and armchair are perfect for lounging in front of the flatscreen TV, reading or enjoying an afternoon nap.

The dining room doubles as a games room and is again, beautifully furnished.

A very smart kitchen has everything needed by even the keenest of chefs and leads to a cloakroom and drying area. The bedroom, with king size bed, is tastefully furnished and comes complete with TV/DVD and iPod dock.

The skylight fills the room with light, and there is the access to the garden outside.

Couples will love the generous bathroom, with bath, a separate shower cubicle, basin and wc.

Moving outside, the pretty garden has stunning views, and being accessible from the bedroom makes it a lovely private breakfast spot.

The property comes with a parking permit for central Ambleside, and there is secure external storage for those with bikes. Ambleside itself is full of life and a hive of activity from early morning to late at night.

Two quirky cinemas, great restaurants, cosy pubs and independent shops make it the perfect destination for people of all ages and tastes.

About the location


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.
