  • "Lovely spacious apartment tastefully decorated and fitted out to an extremely high standard."

    Nicely located by Stock Ghyll Force to both see and hear the water rushing by. The apartment was not easy to find for the first time on a dark rainy evening. The allocated parking bay was difficult to access in a large car.

  • "A lot to like."

    Great bathrooms and kitchen. Comfy beds. Great views. Let down by : living room. Old furniture, poor/broken lighting, small telly with all wires showing, Heavily stained carpet. Balcony scruffy and outside chairs uncomfortable and rickety. It would take very little updating to make this property really good.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the views. We take all comments on board. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Property was comfortable and the kitchen contained most things you would need."

    Plenty of bathrooms to go round. Nice fresh bedding. The sound of the nearby stream was relaxing. A welcome pack such as milk in the fridge would be nice. Some instructions for the dishwasher would be useful. Couple of things to point out, the location is very steep. The allocated parking space was VERY difficult to get in to. It is definitely not a leisurely walk to the centre of town, the return journey is particularly strenuous.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to see that you had a nice stay and that you found the property to be comfy. As the property is self catering, a welcome pack is not always provided. We take your comments on board. We will take a look at the listing to ensure that the information given is up to date. Thank you- The Heart of the Lakes Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely stay thank you: - beds super comfy - very well equipped kitchen - key safe worked well - recycling is a bit of a nightmare but we got there in the end - bath and showers were fab, esp after some very wet and/or long days out walking ."

    ....but did want to let you know about a couple of things... 1. The light above the hob doesn't seem to work... extraction fan part does tho

  • "The loo seat in the main bathroom was broken."

    Some instructions on the cooker/dishwasher/microwave would be helpful.

  • "I will definitely be returning to The Falls."

    I simply loved the sound of Stock Ghyll in the background. Value for money. Ideal to for walks and Ambleside shopping. My only suggestion is that the parking space for number 17 is moved, as it is a little awkward to access. Also we could've done with 2 sets of keys to the property. Thank you.

  • "Overall, the property is well equipped and comfortable."

    The apartment is only a short walk from the centre of Ambleside, from where you can take the bus or boat to other places in the Lakes. There were a few things that others had already reported in the guest book in the property. It's shame that these points don't seem to have been acted upon. 1. The windows really were filthy. There weren't just a few marks here and there. They looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a long time. 2. There was a request to separate rubbish and multiple bins were provided in the kitchen, but how should we know what bins there are and what goes in each bin? I ended up taking a photo of the information in the Refuse Centre and using that as a point of reference. This point would be rectified quickly and easily if there were a copy of the overview from the Refuse Centre in the kitchen. 3. In a property that has 3 bedrooms, it's very likely that there are more than 2 adults. Having a second set of keys would therefore be very useful. We managed with the single set provided, but we always had to think ahead to work out who should take the keys.

  • "Lovely half term break in one of our favourite Lake District towns."

    The flat really added to our experience - cosy, warm, well fitted out (the owners have evidently put a lot of care and love into refurbishing it to a high standard). Great location and views too. Many thanks

    The Miller was spacious, comfortable and handy for local amenities. Recommended.

  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    Perfect location. Really comfy beds and loads of space. Only suggestion would be maybe more comfy sofas. They are quite low and not really big enough. Really good to have dedicated parking space but be aware it is very tight esp. for bigger cars. Overall, excellent experience. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "Lovely property in good position - despite the hill!"

    The maps and books were very useful and the beds really comfy. Slight grumbles involved only having 5 forks in drawer and some of the pans not working on the induction hob as they were broken. Also considering the fact that extra time is allowed for cleaning the kitchen had loads of cobwebs, there were crumbs on lounge carpet and the balcony hadn't been touched. We really enjoyed our week and would love to return at some point

The property

The Miller is a spacious first floor duplex apartment, boasting wondrous views and a desirable location from which to discover the Lake District National Park.

This deceptively spacious apartment is situated in the prestigious Falls area of Ambleside and nestles by woodland and tumbling waterfalls, with the town centre being just a short work away too, there’s no better base for families or a group of friends.

Park in your covered space then climb the shared internal staircase to the first floor, storing your outdoor clothes in the hallway after a day of rambling before discovering the stunning bedrooms all on this level.

Find the master bedroom boasting a plush king-size bed, where you can sit on your high quality settee and admire the deep seated window and tasteful decoration in this room, before exploring its en-suite room, which hosts a wide walk in shower where you can prepare for your day in style.

Discover an inviting double bedroom with neutral colours and finally and a large twin with settee and en-suite bathroom, with the contemporary family bathroom at this level giving each room access to a bathroom, giving guests plenty of privacy and space.

Venture upstairs to your lovely, spacious sitting room with a dining area conveniently in here too; you will be drawn to your full-width balcony where you can look at the tumbling beck and the scenic views as you dine alfresco amidst the fresh countryside breeze in the summer months.

Discover your well-equipped contemporary shaker-style kitchen with stone worktops and plenty of preparation space for little helpers to get involved too, before moving back through to the living/dining room and toasting to your retreat over a homemade meal, the plush seating arrangement inviting you to unwind in afterwards.

Be sure to explore the many wonders of the local area, with the property being in the perfect spot to drive or to take the bus to all the main lakes, towns, villages and attractions within the Lake District.

Why not leave the car for the day and head out on foot to experience some of the very best walking trails in the National Park, with something for every ability, it’s well-worth venturing out to discover the natural wonders of the Lake District.

For a relaxing day, take a leisurely walk into the centre of town to find excellent restaurants, cafés and pubs where you can while away the hours or indulge in a celebratory meal, while the beautiful Rothay Park is a must-see in the summer months for a picnic by the river.

A slightly longer walk will bring you to Waterhead, where you can embark on a cruise on gorgeous Lake Windermere, or choose to take to the waters in a more adventurous way by taking part in a watersport, Brockhole being the perfect place to do so amidst other family-friendly attractions being found here.

For an unforgettable stay in Cumbria, choose The Miller.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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. 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.
