  • "Beautifully decorated house in a glorious setting with views you will never tire of."

    Spent the week feeling blissed out and totally relaxed after a hectic year. . Loved the bedrooms upstairs - felt like you were in a hotel. We had some wonderful evenings in the hot tub looking at star filled skies. . Enjoyed all of our walks from some old Lake District favourites but using the owners cards and book of the area also explored some new places and had some great walks from the door too. Lots of very thoughtful touches which combined with the house, views and location make this is a very special place to stay.

    Thank you so very much for taking the time to give us feedback following your stay at Paddock House, It sound like you have had an amazing time, we agree the views location, house and hot tub are all wonderful and that together they enhanced your holiday and enjoyment of the Lake District. Kind Regards The owner relations team at Lakelovers. Property Owner

The property

Ambleside 2.3 miles.

Paddock House is a stunning, architecturally designed property set overlooking Lake Windermere, a couple of miles south of Ambleside in the Lake District.

Surrounded by nature and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this spectacular property enjoys a private setting with a large, secure garden and hot tub, perfect for a week away with family and friends.

Upon arrival, pull into the off-road parking area and enter through the large front door.

Step into the open-plan living space and you’ll immediately be captivated by the jaw-dropping views over Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells: Claife Heights, Hawkshead, Wray Castle, Coniston Old Man, Bow Fell, Crinkle Crags and even Scafell Pike can be admired from the living room.

Curl up on the sofa before the woodburning stove and enjoy a movie night on the Smart TV, or enjoy an evening of friendly competition on the ping-pong table.

A few steps up lead into the kitchen, complete with a fantastic range of appliances, sure to encourage home-cooking.

The first bedroom sits downstairs, offering a king-size and en-suite bathroom, whilst upstairs lies a super-king-size with en-suite bathroom and a double with en-suite shower room, both neatly presented and offering exceptional views.

Outside, admire the views from the hot tub after a long day of rambling, or perhaps start your day in style with a quick dip before showering off and venturing out to explore.

It is possible to do several walks from Paddock House: to Ambleside (through the woods), to the summit of Wansfell (great views of Ambleside and the length of lake Windermere), to Troutbeck (with a couple of great pubs) and down to Brockhole (with outdoor activity centre, high ropes courses and café/shop).

Just down the road also lies the Low Wood Bay resort which boasts 2 restaurants and is a just short drive (or walk) away, The waterfront area also provides a tranquil setting for leisurely walks and it is possible to hire paddleboards, canoes, sailing boats, go wake boarding/ wake surfing and hire motor boats allowing you to soak in the stunning views of the lake and the surrounding fells.

It’s easy to walk down from Paddock House, or you can park there for free if using facilities.

The Holbeck Ghyll Hotel also welcomes non residents and is just 2 minutes’ walk from the house, and the Samling (recently awarded a Michelin star) is very close by.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


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, including the popular eateries of Misto, Sheila's Cottage, and The Lily Bar. 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.
