The property

Riverbank is set within Stepping Stones House which is an historic country property, once owned by William Wordsworth's son, overlooking Rydal water and its famous stepping stones.

Beautiful views in every direction, this lovely location is within walking distance of Ambleside and a short drive to Wordsworth's Dove Cottage in Grasmere.

Within this 'picture postcard' rambling property are several holiday apartments.

Each one is rated by Visit England as four star; having pretty comfortable interiors and each with their own front door leading into the garden and grounds.

They offer a lovely and private home from home for you to enjoy your Ambleside cottage holiday.

The ideal Lakeland retreat - beautiful views, fantastic walks straight from your door, an abundance of local wildlife including ducks, red deer, the occasional otter and red squirrel, open fires, a myriad of local pubs and restauarants, shops, cinema and of course amazing walks or cycles, Riverbank at Stepping Stones has it all.

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

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.
