  • “The location of the Hayloft was excellent.”

    The view from every window was beautiful.

    The view from every window was beautiful. I read some worrying reviews regarding cleanliness prior to going away. They were totally unfounded. We didn't notice noise nuisance from traffic at night, only very loud snoring from the occupant of the accommodation below! LOL. I lovely break away, thank you.

The property

Originally an early, eighteenth-century hayloft, this quaint first-floor cottage apartment is situated in Clappersgate, a hamlet between Ambleside and Hawkshead.

You will enjoy visits to these two lovely, traditional Lakeland towns.

You can also take a five-minute drive to the picturesque village of Elter-water at the head of the dramatic Langdale Valley or to the charming Chapelstile at the foot of the Langdale Fells.

You will be overawed by the amazing landscape. Park your car in your private space, enter your cottage and hang up your outdoor wear in the large heated porch, perfect for drying wet coats.

Climb up the carpeted stairs and walk into your inviting L-shaped, open-plan living area with lovely views towards Lake Windermere.

Browse the se-lection of books available on the large built-in bookcase, then step into your stylish fitted kitchen and admire the pretty garden views, before settling down at your circular dining table to enjoy a bite to eat. Your bedrooms feature delightful, exposed beams that emphasise the Hayloft’s traditional charm.

Relax in your comfortable, cosy furnishings and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

You will find your mod-ern bathroom is light and welcoming. In the morning, head out onto your patio and soak up the fresh Lakeland air, or take just a few steps across the road to your attractive shared riverside garden.

Why not bring a picnic or book and enjoy the quiet relaxation of this unique space or launch your canoe on the lovely river which will take you to Lake Windermere’s many inlets, wooded islands and small bays?

If you prefer to spend a day on the fells you will have a wide choice of scenic trails to follow, including a footpath to Todd Cragg and Loughrigg only one hundred yards from your front door.

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.
