  • "We have been visiting Romney Grange for many years and think that no."

    12 is one of the best. We love the layout of the apartment and the patio area is a real delight. Our only regret is that the bath was replaced by a shower. There's nothing like a good soak following a long walk. In previous years we have not used the kitchen very much, but because of the pandemic we bought most of our food with us. This is probably the experience of many recent visitors The kitchen is very well equipped and works very well. The only draw back is the fridge freezer. It has been well used and needs to be defrosted, but I appreciate that with the tight turnover of bookings this is difficult to do, but I hope the owners might consider replacing it when they have the opportunity. Apart from this detail the apartment meets all our needs and we will return.

  • "A return visit to Romney 12."

    Great property, great location. Wonderful, and comfortable, base from which to explore the area.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting"

  • "The accommodation was excellent, well equipped and conveniently located."

    If the weather was poor, staying in was not a problem as the apartment was so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need, and we ate in a few times as getting a table in a restaurant was well nigh impossible. a second set of keys would have been useful as we didn't always all go out and come back together. Better instructions for how to top up the hot water would be helpful.

  • "The apartment was as described on the website, very clean and comfortable as well as being very well equipped."

    We were concerned about how hot the water temperature was. It comes very quickly and can catch you unawares - a potential hazard for children and older visitors. Hopefully it can be adjusted for future guests. Otherwise, it was a thoroughly enjoyable week in our second visit to Romney Grange.

This attractive two-bedroom, ground-floor apartment is situated in the prestigious Romney Grange development at Waterhead, on Lake Windermere.

Leave the car in your numbered space and go through the security entry system into the shared hallway before heading inside Romney 12, hanging your outdoor clothes in the hall before being welcomed into the spacious open-plan living area.

Admire the lovely furnishings and gorgeous carpet in here, with plenty of places to relax along with a large patio window opening out onto the sunny, private outdoor area with stunning scenic views.

Retire in the evening to one of the two elegant bedrooms, choose from the master king-size featuring an en-suite shower room or the charming twin room home to a flatscreen TV, with use of the shower room.

Spend time out on the patio area in the warmer months, whether enjoying your first morning coffee or coming together with some glasses of wine as you catch the last of the evening light, it’s a serene spot.

Stroll over to Waterhead to discover fine restaurants, shoreline tearooms and an attractive lakeside pub.

Enjoy a cruise on the lake and on a clear day, you will bask in wonderful views of panoramic scenery, or hire a boat and get up close to the many secluded bays where you may even catch sight of the otters!

Walk fifteen-minutes to Ambleside, nestled within lovely green hills and set in the heart of the Lake District National Park; browse the independent shops, visit one of its excellent restaurants, cafés and pubs, enjoy the latest film at one of the well-loved cinemas on a rainy day or take a stroll to Rothay Park and enjoy a peaceful riverside walk.

Visit the town of Lakeside via a Lake cruise and see the amazing Lakes Aquarium home to otters and sharks, or take a tour of Bowness-on-Windermere, making sure to visit The World of Beatrix Potter to meet the beloved characters created by the children’s author, before stopping in at Peter Rabbit and Friends to purchase a plush toy to take home.

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.
