The property

Situated in the beautiful Lakes town of Ambleside is this charming period property, over 200-years old and now offering beautifully-presented holiday accommodation in the wondrous Lake District.

Prospect House is perfectly suited to a large group or a family of eight looking to enjoy their down-time as much as their adventures outdoors, with elegant and classic interior, as well as welcome contemporary features.

Enter into the original slate hallway, immediately noticing the property's classy character, and head into the kitchen/diner to the right, where many evenings can be spent around the rustic, long wood table in the company of your loved ones.

Relish a challenge of cooking for the group using the superb Lacanche range cooker with a large gas hob, set within the stylish green handmade kitchen, and let the pots simmer away as you sip a glass of wine perched at the breakfast bar.

Carry the conversation into the sitting room where a mix of antique and current furniture and seating have been arranged around the traditional woodburning stove.

Head downstairs to the lower-ground-floor where a cinema room awaits you on a rainy day, be impressed by the huge 75" internet connected ultra HDTV and watch a newly released blockbuster, or an epic match on Sky Sports.

Discover four exquisitely furnished bedrooms providing each member of the party a fine place to end their day; discover two super-king-size bedrooms, both able to be twin rooms on request thanks to zip/link features and both enjoying an en-suite shower room.

Make the attractive king-size bedroom your sleeping spot with a pretty, white wrought-iron bed frame, and an en-suite shower room, or choose the wonderful master bedroom, where a super-king-size iron bed frame rests alongside an old feature fireplace, and a lovely, long window which has armchairs perched before it, so you can sit and admire the views over Ambleside and the greenery beyond in peace, this bedroom has it's own free standing bath with seperate shower enclosure.

Explore the wonders of the Lakes and return back to Prospect House in all its splendour.

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.
