Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
This sophisticated apartment at the heart of Ambleside is a perfect romantic hideaway. Surrounded by vibrant village life and with Windermere Lake Cruises departing close-by, you'll gaze out to the fells from your top floor windows and fall in love with the scene. The property is beautifully furnished, cosy yet bright and full of character. Relax on the leather sofa after a day of exploring, dine in or dine out with incredible ease, and rest-up in the delightful vaulted bedroom with contemporary sky-lit bathroom to boot. With private parking right outside your door (a real bonus in popular Ambleside) you will be perfectly placed to make the most of any special occasion or honeymoon in the Lake District.
Accommodation in detail
Private parking right outside the apartment in central Ambleside.
Lakeland staircase leads to the first floor entrance and hall with space for walking clobber. Upstairs again to to the 'hideaway' itself, and a superb modern lounge commanding views to Ambleside and the surrounding fells. A dining hall leads through to the romantic bedroom. The breakfast kitchen is well-equipped, also enjoying the views, and the sky-lit bathroom is sleek and modern with shower over bath.
A romantic self-catering apartment in Ambleside doesn't come much more convenient than this. Taking the top floor to make the most of the surrounding scenery, but providing private parking and a perfect bolt hole right at the heart of the village, you'll have a unique opportunity to soak up the Lakeland lifestyle during a romantic break or even a honeymoon in the Lake District.
Ambleside is a sophisticated Lake District village on the northern shore of Lake Windermere at the heart of the Lakes, so well-placed for exploring. Ambleside is renowned as a gathering point for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, but it's also known for vibrant shopping, tasty local delis and acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as 'The Glass House'. You'll find plenty of options for memorable evenings out only a stone's throw from your door and with no need to use your car.
A short stroll out of the village centre takes you to Waterhead Pier, where Windermere Lake Cruises depart to Bowness and Lakeside. A great way to explore and admire the scenery without even using your car.
Numerous renowned Lake District walks begin in or around Ambleside village, and experts are on hand in specialists shops to get you equipped and provide route advice. There are also some excellent country pubs to return to after a day on the fells or for a lazy Sunday lunch. We highly recommend you take a trip to the Queen's Head at Troutbeck, before driving over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass to Ullswater. A dramatic and romantic Sunday drive if ever there was one.

The Cumbria/Lake District
The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.
