Charming detached cottage in the heart of the bustling village of Ambleside perfect for couples wanting to explore the mountains and have easy access to restaurants and shops
Enjoying an elevated position with views of the hills, this delightful detached cottage is located in the heart of the bustling village of Ambleside. The perfect choice for couples wanting to explore the mountains and lakes, it is also within walking distance of a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and shops. The shores of Lake Windermere are just a short stroll away too, making this a wonderful romantic hideaway.
With a contemporary style throughout, traditional touches such as exposed stonework and beams add to this property’s character. It’s accessed via a steep drive and then a large set of steps, which lead you to a patio area with views across the rooftops. After a busy day of exploring, retreat to the comfort of the living area in the lounge/diner, with comfortable sofas you can relax on and a wood burner-effect gas fire to keep you nice and toasty. Enjoy a romantic meal together at the dining table, after whipping up a tasty treat in the well-equipped and colourful cottage-style kitchen. Decorated in neutral, calming tones, the bedroom is both inviting and relaxing, with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. Wake up refreshed and enjoy the impressive views over the terrace towards Loughrigg. Step outside and take in those impressive views, once again, from the shared patio garden area.
Hop on one of the ferries that leave Ambleside to cross Lake Windermere. Stop off to explore the fascinating Wray Castle, which overlooks the lake. If you’re feeling active, there are many water sports on offer here, including canoeing and paddle boarding. Take a gentle stroll around the scenic circular walk at Tarn Hows (5.5 miles) or for something a little more challenging, head to the rugged and hugely popular Langdales, 7 miles away.
