Only 50 metres from Lake Windermere's Waterhead Pier and a leisurely stroll from Ambleside's vibrant centre, this beautifully refurbished Lakeland cottage is a truly enviable bolt hole. One or two couples will relax and enjoy the sophisticated living space, perfectly arranged for memorable social occasions. Solid oak floors offset crisp white walls throughout stylish double bedrooms, luxury bathroom, cosy living area and swish open plan dining kitchen - where we fell in love with the baby blue retro fridge! Walk from your door to Wansfell, hop on a steamer at Waterhead Pier, or simply soak up cosmopolitan Lakeland life in Ambleside... This superb retreat ensures every guest can take the holiday at their own pace. Accommodation in detail Guests enjoy complimentary membership of nearby Low Wood Leisure Club. Private parking for one car, with additional parking close by. A Victorian stained-glass entrance leads to the modern open plan living space, with solid oak floors, luxury furnishings and large original sash windows. Well-equipped designer kitchen and sophisticated dining space. An oak staircase leads to the two superb double bedrooms, one of which overlooks Wansfell and has a walk-in wardrobe. Luxurious house bathroom with contemporary wood panelling, his and hers sinks and shower over bath. Location This super-stylish Ambleside holiday cottage takes a fantastic location; only 50 metres from Lake Windermere's shore and Windermere Lake Cruises at Waterhead Pier. The property is also just a very short stroll from the centre of Ambleside village. On the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is one of the Lake District's most cosmopolitan communities. You'll lose yourself in sophisticated shops, sample local produce in cafes and delis, and try acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as 'The Glass House' - favoured even by Gordon Ramsay! Surrounded by Lakeland Fells and walking routes, Ambleside village is a traditional gathering point for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. You'll pick up all sorts of tips in the expert outdoor shops, and find route tips available at the Ambleside tourist information centre. If you're looking for historic interest or a bit of culture, there's plenty to see. The village's much-photographed 'Bridge House' is one of the oldest and smallest houses in the Lake District. Roman Fort Galava is just outside the village, and poet William Wordsworth's former family home can be visited nearby at Rydal Mount and Gardens. With the A591 providing easy access to historic Grasmere and beyond, you'll find endless Lake District attractions within reach. Our tip is to take a Sunday drive from Ambleside over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass - your scenic route to Ullswater with lunch at the renowned Queen's Head en-route.  …see more

Nestled in Beatrix Potter country with fabulous views over Windermere, Fair Rigg stands only a stroll away from the lake shore. This charismatic property provides a unique retreat no matter how active, relaxed or sophisticated your gathering. The four scenic bedroom suites are so special they're individually named: Bowness, Windermere, Claife and Beckside. 'Bowness' has its own separate lounge with additional sofa bed and sun terrace. 'Beckside' incorporates an adjoining twin room for family use. You only need stock up the kitchen and you'll enjoy endless quality time right here in the house; cook up a storm on the Aga, celebrate a special occasion in the dining room with open fire, relax in the living room admiring the view through the bay window... or escape to the gorgeous furnished gardens. Accommodation in detail Stained glass decorates the entry to the hall, with extra shower room/cloakroom off. Superb living room with splayed bay window. Dining room with large table, open fire and access to scenic decking area. Breakfast kitchen with Aga. Downstairs to the en-suite 'Bowness Room' and the additional lounge with double sofa bed and French doors to sun terrace. Upstairs to the en-suite 'Windermere' and 'Claife' suites, both with lake views, and the 'Beckside' family en-suite with king-size double room and twin room. In addition to ample parking outside, there is a garage for bike storage. Location A luxury Lake District holiday home won't always be found in such a fabulous location. This large self-catering property with lake views overlooks Windermere and stands only a stroll from the shore, with the car ferry nearby providing access to shops, restaurants, hire boats and Lake District family attractions in Bowness - including the Royalty Cinema, Old Laundry Theatre and the famous World of Beatrix Potter attraction. But Beatrix Potter's footsteps can be traced right from the doorstep of Fair Rigg, in this prime location for walking and exploring. The close-by hamlet of Near Sawrey was the author's home, and her traditional Lakeland cottage can be visited at Hill Top. Esthwaite Water is a must-see during your stay; declared by Beatrix Potter as 'the most beautiful of lakes'. Near Sawrey's Tower Bank Arms is a renowned Lake District country pub, and featured in Beatrix Potter's books. Hawkshead village is also only a short drive away. With its car-free cobbled streets, local shops, tea rooms and tempting delicatessens you'll find a leisurely day is well spent. Drive a little further and you'll reach Ambleside; a cosmopolitan Lake District village with sophisticated shops, cafes and acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as The Glass House. From Ambleside you can also stroll to Waterhead Pier to take a cruise on Lake Windermere, or follow the A591 to Rydal Water and historic Grasmere.  …see more

A magnificent Lake District farmhouse dating back to the 18th century, surrounded by breathtaking countryside in the hamlet of Little Langdale. Once a local Staging Inn, Birch House has been beautifully refurbished to provide an exceptional standard of self-catering accommodation for groups of up to 14 people. 21st century luxury blends with homely Lakeland character; polished oak floors, exposed beams and cosy woodburning stoves provide comfort and relaxation in a sublime location. A superb dining room makes large gatherings a breeze. Accommodation in detail Gorgeous landscaped gardens and parking for four cars.

Location The hamlet of Little Langdale has a stunning location under the Lingmoor Fells and offers an air of escape that's hard to beat. With a blissfully remote feel, this area is a haven for walkers and provides access to many of the Lake District's most famous routes. There are several Lakeland pubs in the Langdale Valley, and the excellent Three Shires Inn is just a minute's walk from Birch House. When you wish to head out and explore the rest of the Lakes, pass pretty little Elterwater on your way to Skelwith Bridge and the A593. From here, head south to Coniston or north to well-served Ambleside and the A591 - the main route through the Lakes. Enjoy England Gold Award for 2011/12.  …see more

With wonderful panoramic lake views from living room and balcony, and a lovely leafy outlook from every other room, this super self-catering property in central Bowness makes a peaceful, perfect retreat for couples, families or friends. The accommodation is stylish and superbly arranged for sociable gatherings; relax on sumptuous sofas in the living room, admiring the view through a wall of glass to the balcony. Entertain in style, with a superbly equipped kitchen, dining space, furnished balcony and sunny garden equipped for fabulous BBQs. Rest-up in Laura Ashley-styled double bedrooms, and let the kids entertain themselves in a cosy bunk room stocked with books and games. Perfect! The owners regret that this property can not accommodate children under 5 years old. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 3 cars. External steps lead to the first floor entrance hall and cloaks cupboard. On this level are the 2 double bedrooms (one king-size), compact bunk room with 2'6" beds, (more suitable for children), TV, books and games, and newly installed house bathroom. Upstairs to the spacious open plan living area, with relaxed Laura Ashley furnishings, laminate flooring and full-width scenic balcony. The dining area is adjacent to the cream Shaker-style kitchen. Sunny south-facing garden, equipped with BBQ, furniture and sun loungers. Location This superb Bowness self-catering property is perfectly placed for a varied Lake District holiday. Soak up the views from the comfort of home, relax in a secluded and sunny garden, but enjoy the convenience of shops, restaurants, bars and boating activities all only a stroll away. On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a bustling tourist destination with a character all of its own. Contemporary shopping streets lead down to Bowness Bay, where hire boats come and go, and Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside. There's lots to see in both these areas, and they can be explored without even taking your car. Lake District bus tours also depart regularly from Bowness village, but if you'd prefer to explore by car you'll find that driving is scenic in every direction. A couple of miles away, the A591 leads right into the heart of the Lakes, taking in Ambleside, historic Grasmere, and branching off to breathtaking locations such as the Langdale Valley - many famous Lake District walking routes are within easy reach. Family attractions in Bowness include the World of Beatrix Potter, right in the village centre. This famous children's author lived just on the other side of Lake Windermere, in the sleepy hamlet of Near Sawrey. Her home is open to the public and can be reached easily via the car ferry crossing from Bowness. Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness, on the way into the scenic Lyth Valley. The lush green landscapes are a delight to explore, with many walking routes and a wealth of renowned Lake District gastropubs. Well worth a try!  …see more

Lovingly converted from an old coach house, this fabulous 5 star studio apartment enjoys stunning view towards Lake Windermere. The Gallery is found in a peaceful, pretty location at the head of a private country lane - one of a few select dwellings. Close to Ambleside, you'll enjoy the best of both worlds; explore the delights of the lively village and lake shore, or hide away in blissful tranquility. The unique open plan accommodation has been furnished with no expense spared, to create a contemporary retreat with an infectious sense of calm. You'll find everything you need to relax, pamper and dine together - all the time enjoying one of the most enviable outlooks in the area. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Traditional entrance porch with space for walking clobber. A spatial flow staircase leads to the first floor accommodation - a very spacious open plan area that's cleverly arranged to provide a sense of space. Maple storage units surround a king-size bed. Dressing area and luxurious bathroom with whirlpool bath and power shower. The main living area is positioned to enjoy the scenery, with chic designer furnishings. The kitchen sits in a corner of its own, excellently equipped for romantic meals in. Outside you can wander through the tranquil grounds, or take a seat with a glass of wine! Location The Gallery enjoys a prime Lake District location - whatever style of holiday you're looking for! The property lies within a select handful of converted properties, close to the shores of Lake Windermere and almost half-way between the popular villages of Ambleside and Windermere (with Bowness-on-Windermere also only a few miles away!). What's more, we highly recommend a romantic drive up to the Queen's Head at Troutbeck (to your north east) then over the Kirkstone Pass to serene Ullswater. An unforgettable day out with unforgettable scenery! Windermere village is the perfect place to stock up the kitchen. You'll find a Booths supermarket there, stocking fine local produce as well as everyday essentials. Windermere also has a train station, and a range of local shops, pubs. Just a couple of miles down the road from Windermere, you'll find Bowness village on the east shores of the lake. Lively nightlife, restaurants and shops line the high street, and hire boats are a popular attraction in the Bowness Bay. Ambleside lies to your north, via a scenic drive on the A591 (voted Britain's favourite stretch of road!). The pretty historic village nestles on the northern shore of the Lake, and has grown to become one of the Lake District's most cosmopolitan communities without losing its traditional charm. Ambleside is a lovely place to while away a day, and to enjoy a romantic meal by night. Some of the finest restaurants in the Lake District are found in and around Ambleside. Cruises on Lake Windermere can be taken from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre.  …see more

Location This romantic rural Lake District cottage lies only a stroll from the small village of Crosthwaite, in the north of the Lyth Valley and only a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The Lyth Valley is lush and laid back, riddled with picturesque walking and cycling routes and renowned as a peaceful landscape compared to busier Lake District self-catering destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside.

You'll never be too far from attractions, evening entertainment and sophisticated shopping in Bowness village, with Windermere Golf Club also nearby. Also from Bowness, Windermere Lake Cruises depart to Ambleside and Lakeside. The Lyth Valley is also renowned for its scattering of high-class country pub restaurants, one of which stands only a stroll away from Highbeck Cottage.

Tastefully modernised to 4 star standards, the interior is homely, enjoys a spacious living room and separate dining area, and opens out to a serene sun deck. Despite the secluded feel, Hawkshead village remains close by and the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere to Bowness is minutes away. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car.

'Windows' are certainly the theme of this superb central Ambleside apartment; spacious, contemporary, flooded with light and boasting fabulous views over the village to Lake Windermere and our majestic fells. The stylish open plan living space is a dream for sociable gatherings; chocolate leather furnishings sit on stripped wooden floors, formal dining space enjoys open access to the designer kitchen, and all this is surrounded by an array of almost floor-to-ceiling windows. The bedroom suites, complete with individual bathroom facilities, sit on separate floors, ensuring privacy for couples or peace and quiet for parents. It has to be said that the loft-style king-size bedroom suite, with access to the roof terrace, makes 'Windows' a worthwhile indulgence for one couple alone! Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars. Ground floor entrance porch with space for walking clobber. Upstairs to the open plan living area with enormous windows, stripped wooden floors and chocolate leather furnishings. The ingenious kitchen has a central island, and serves a large dining area.

Nestled on the northern shores of Lake Windermere at the heart of the Lakes, Ambleside is a charming historic village that has grown to become one of the most vibrant destinations in the region. Part of Ambleside's appeal is its location; enjoying the tranquility and activity of Lake Windermere's shores (lake cruises depart just outside the village centre), but also the dramatic backdrop of our Lakeland Fells and mountains (Ambleside is renowned as a hub for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts). It's easy to see why so many return year after year and why so many long to make their home here! In the village centre, explore tempting cafes and a wide range of shops - everything from local craft to expert outdoor clothing. Ambleside is home to two cinema venues and several acclaimed Lake District restaurants - along with the wonderful country pubs in the surrounding area you'll be spoilt for choice. Special evenings out or romantic occasions…all are catered for within the village centre. Within walking distance of Ambleside village centre is Waterhead Pier; the departure point for Windermere Lake Cruises. With regular departures throughout the day, you'll find the elegant 'steamers' or smaller launches a perfect way to explore without a car. The boats travel the full length of the lake, with stops at Bowness and Lakeside.  …see more
