The Cumbria/Lake District region
The Lake District is home to some of England's most beautiful scenery, with many stunning lake and fell views, ever popular with those wanting tranquility or inspiration. Indeed, both Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth found much of their inspiration in the region.
The Lake District is also ideally suited to to fulfil the needs of anyone who enjoys outdoor activities of any kind. The scenery can be enjoyed equally by walking, cycling or by car. Sailing, cruising and kayaking are available for those who enjoy the water. Various other activities are available throughout the region from rock climbing to hang gliding.
The Ambleside area
Ambleside has been referred to as 'The Heart of the Lakes' due to its central location, enabling easy access to all areas of the Lake District. It caters for the many thousands of visitors that stop there each year with many, many excellent restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars. There are many shops available in Ambleside, particularly focused on outdoor pursuit equipment and clothing. Many more shops are available in the adjacent town of Windermere.
Once you are in Ambleside you don't need to use your car! There is lots to do and see within walking distance, from the high fells to a boat trip on Windermere, and there are very good bus services.
Local points of interest include Lake Windermere (only a 10 minute walk away), the Beatrix Potter home in Near Sawrey and Wordsworth's Dove Cottage at Grasmere.

This house was perfect for me and my friends. As soon as you drive up the street, you see the quaint Silver Moon shop, and you can't help but smile at how charming the building is. Then you see... more

We are currently enjoying the end of our week in Ambleside and the weather has been warm and Sunny. The property is well situated in the Centre of the Lake district and is centrally located in the heart of Ambleside. It comfortably sleeps 4 and everything we needed is provided except for a clothes dryer. Ambleside can get noisy at the weekend but is quiet during the week at this time of year.
Our daughter who has mobility issues was able to handle the stairs but property could not accommodate people with wheelchairs.

What a discovery Above Stock is! I have been renting properties in the Lake District for so many years and tend to stay in Ambleside as it is a bit more relaxed than the other major towns. I must have walked past this property hundereds of times on my way up and down Peggy Hill to and from the town centre - never realising that it was available to rent until I recently found it online and it is quite simply, superb.
Located right in centre of Ambleside (basically 30 seconds walk from the Salutation Hotel) but still very quiet at all times. The property is extremely roomy throughout with a spacious lounge, very comfortable seating, large dining table, lovely gas fire in addition to modern and effective gas radiators and a fully equipped kitchen with absolutely everything you will ever need. There's a newly-fitted bathroom with the best shower in the world and upstairs there are two very spacious and comfortable rooms (one twin and one double) with bags of wardrobe space.
Compared to other apartments/cottages that I have rented over the years through various rental companies (you will no doubt know who I am referring to...), Above Stock offers unbeatable value for money and I can't wait to return once again.
Take my advice and stay here... It ticks every single box...
