The property

Located in an elevated position above Ambleside village with stunning views across the local fells and just a short walk to the shores of Lake Windermere, High View is a large Lakeland terrace house with space for six guests. Steps lead to the front door, which opens to a bright sitting room where you can relax in front of the fireplace and enjoy the views through a large bay window.

A modern kitchen / diner provides a bright and airy social space for lazy breakfasts.

On the first floor you’ll find a luxurious king size bedroom and spacious family bathroom.

Take a second flight of stairs to the top of the house for two more bedrooms; a double room with views across Ambleside and a comfortable twin bedroom. Outside, across a shared alley, steps lead to a sloped terraced garden with furnished patio.

Ambleside is an ideal holiday base with a variety of shops, traditional pubs, contemporary eateries and even two fabulous cinemas.

A walk up Loughrigg Fell from the centre of Ambleside will present spectacular views across Lake Windermere that will take your breath away.

If you prefer a more leisurely stroll, a relaxed twenty minute walk from High View will take you to the shores of Lake Windermere where boat trips depart daily throughout the year with connections for the Lakeside Steam Railway, Aquarium of the Lakes and Lakeland Motor Museum.

For a great day trip by car – Rydal, Grasmere, Langdale and Windermere are all in close proximity of Ambleside. Large families and groups will love the period charm, modern conveniences and great location of this self catering property.

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.
