Superb large flat garden - ideal for ball games. Rope swing - the children love it. Perfect BBQ location. Private parking for 5 cars. Lockable bike shed. The views from the garden are just wonderful, and it is really peaceful as well, being at the end of a quiet private road. Deer frequently come into the garden from the woods nearby.
The Cumbria/Lake District
We love the Lake District and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. For lovers of beautiful scenery and outdoor activities it is unrivalled in England. Combine the sumptuous landscape with the fascinating villages and important cultural history and you can see why the Lake District is many peoples favourite part of the UK.
Wordsworth's Dove Cottage is just a 10 minute drive away in Grasmere, and Beatrix Potter's house is not much further, near the delightful village of Hawkshead. You are also well placed to explore the picturesque towns of Keswick, Bowness and Windermere, all within a half hour drive. Windermere Lake Cruises operate frequent steamer services from Waterhead, at one end of Ambleside.
Sitting in an elevated position close to the centre of the pretty town of Ambleside, Dalefield House is perfect for a gathering of friends or family in the heart of the Lake District National Park. The large Victorian house enjoys stunning views and is ideally situated for hiking and mountain biking as well as watersports on Lake Windermere. Ambleside itself has a fine selection of restaurants, tea shops and country pubs, many within a five minute walk of Dalefield House. After eating out, Zeffirellis cinema in Ambleside has several screens to entertain you in the evening.
