    “Had very enjoyable stay at Birch Knoll which is good for older people.”

    Its very convenient for buses and boats and some lovely restaurants. Parking outside not easy if you have large car.

The property

A few minutes’ walk from the centre of Ambleside, this cosy bungalow is the perfect Lake District base for a small family or two couples sharing.

Waterhead Pier is on the doorstep, from where Windermere Lake Cruises cross regularly for Bowness and Lakeside, whilst historic Grasmere and the picturesque village of Hawkshead are both within easy reach.

For stocking up on groceries, the award-winning Booths supermarket is in nearby Windermere where guests can also browse the many independent shops, restaurants and bars.

Birch Knoll has an especially pretty garden, perfect for enjoying the views or reading the morning papers over coffee or a laze holiday brunch.

There is parking for one car, while the garage provides safe storage for bikes and other outdoor equipment.

Once inside, guests will appreciate the bright, well-planned space and superbly comfortable furnishings.

Recently refurbished, the stylish kitchen is equipped with everything needed to make this a home-from-home.

The two bedrooms are tastefully furnished and offer lovely views.

A smart bathroom with shower over the bath completes the accommodation. Ambleside itself is a lively village with two independent cinemas, tearooms, fine restaurants and interesting shops around every corner.

Whether guests are planning a holiday filled with energetic outdoor activities or looking for a more laid-back break, this is a wonderful spot in which to spend a special time together.

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.
