  • “Lovely apartment, very spacious and an excellent view extending towards high peak and Loughrigg.”

    The view is slightly diminished by the overgrown hedgerow opposite the living room windows. The finish of the apartment is excellent with two newly refurbished bathrooms, a large and comfortable bed and smart living area. The pillows were too soft, but this is more our preference. ...

    The view is slightly diminished by the overgrown hedgerow opposite the living room windows. The finish of the apartment is excellent with two newly refurbished bathrooms, a large and comfortable bed and smart living area. The pillows were too soft, but this is more our preference. The apartment has a spacious terrace which was a welcome addition on a sunny afternoon, post a long walk! The patio furniture has seen slightly better days and could benefit from replacement. The kitchen is spacious but lacks some essentials that we would expect to find in a holiday let, particularly one pitching at the upper end. For example, there is no washing machine, despite there being a clothes airer! This would be very helpful to those who are on longer stays in order to wash walking attire. There was also no cafetière and a lack of usable oven trays. The position is superb and a short walk down a very steep hill takes you to the centre of Ambleside and many restaurants and shops. Whilst there is an allocated parking space, it is incredibly tight and if others don’t park in their space, you can be left without anywhere to park. This happened to us and another owner was less than helpful in trying to resolve the issue. This was disappointing. Overall, a lovely place to stay in a brilliant location to enable good exploration of all the lakes have to offer.

About the property

High Pike is a spacious ground floor apartment within the prestigious Lakelands Development set in an elevated position only a very short walk from the centre of the village of Ambleside.

With stunning views towards Fairfield Horseshoe and Loughrigg from both the lounge and patio, and Waterhead at the northern tip of Lake Windermere is a ten minute walk away, its a fabulous location.

High Pike offers comfortable, quality accommodation, in a great, convenient location, with walks from the door making it a popular choice all year round.

Easily accessible on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a contemporary, characterful Lakeland village with a spectacular backdrop of Lake District fells.

The location is ideal for walking in the Lake District, with many renowned routes beginning in and around the village.

But Ambleside is also a popular choice for a relaxed, slow-paced holiday.

Contemporary shops, leisurely lake cruises, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs make the village centre a delight at any time of year.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
