Parson's View (703)
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
With breathtaking views to lake and fells, this impressive character property is part of the original rectory to Ambleside's chapel of St. Anne. But the interesting history doesn't stop there; listed on the deeds is the famous romantic poet William Wordsworth. He must have fallen for the views just as we did. Parson's View offers very spacious and elegant accommodation, enhanced by a meticulous 2009 refurbishment. Sociable gatherings of any kind will settle right in, with ample living space and very generous bedrooms. Two couples might find this a romantic retreat, while families or friends can make use of the charming vaulted twin bedroom. All this and only a stroll to the centre of Ambleside, and the shores of Lake Windermere.
Accommodation in detail
Private parking for 2 cars. Entrance porch and hallway with utility / cloakroom, 3rd WC and access to the garden and patios. A grand Victorian staircase leads to the main accommodation. Large living room with splayed bay window, luxury leather sofas, woodburning stove and formal dining area. Separate designer kitchen. On this level are 2 king-size bedrooms (1 en-suite), with different but fabulous views. The main house bathroom is accessed via the landing. A short staircase leads to the vaulted twin bedroom, with games area.
This Ambleside holiday home with lake views lies only a short stroll from the popular village centre, and the northern shores of Lake Windermere. Ambleside is perhaps the most sophisticated village in the Lake District, with a charming historic atmosphere but a wide range of contemporary shops and high quality restaurants and cafes. It's a very pleasant place to while away a day, and certainly a foodie's dream!
At Waterhead Pier, just outside the village centre, Windermere Lake Cruises depart throughout the day and provide a car-free route to both Bowness and Lakeside. Exploring by car is also a breeze; Ambleside lies on the A590 which is famously scenic and forms the main route into the heart of the Lakes. Drive south to the stunning Troutbeck Valley, Windermere and Bowness, or north past Rydal Water to Grasmere.
You might like to visit two of William Wordsworth's other former homes during your stay. Rydal Mount & Gardens is just outside Ambleside, and Dove Cottage (part of the Wordsworth Museum) is found a short drive away in Grasmere.

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.
