A first-class apartment set in a most enviable location, on a high hillside close to the centre of Ambleside, in the very heart of the Lake District.
The property boasts fabulous triple-aspect views of some of the most beloved landmarks of the national park, including the Old Man of Coniston, Wetherlam, Loughrigg and the magnificent Fairfield Horseshoe ridge stretching away into the distance.
A private off road parking area is on the same level as the property, with the main entrance opening into a lovely sun room, an ideal place to sit and relax after a busy day out and about.
The kitchen adjoins the sun room and boasts stunning sights over the town’s rooftops towards the fells beyond.
A spacious sitting room, with patio doors leading onto the front balcony, provides a second place to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings and there is a modern shower room with a large walk-in shower, whilst six steps up from the living area lead to the two cosy bedrooms.
The centre of Ambleside is just a short stroll away, home to a host of eateries, traditional old pubs serving an array of award-winning local ale, and a unique cinema where for the price of your ticket, you can enjoy a film, live jazz music and a lovely meal to boot.
With a good selection of shops, outdoor centres, galleries and a lovely park, Ambleside is a wonderful resort whatever the time of year.
Take a cruise down the lake to the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere where you’ll find the Lakes Aquarium in Lakeside great for little ones, or alternatively you can disembark at Brockhole and walk back to Ambleside over Wansfell, through pretty countryside.
With Rydal, Grasmere and Hawkshead an easy drive away, this is a great central Lakeland location for that well-deserved break with friends and family.
About the location
Windermere 4 miles; 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.
Note: This property is only suitable for children aged 12 and over.
