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.

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 located on the main route through the Lakes making it ideally postioned for travel to all the sights of the Lake District. It 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 guides 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. The Roman fort Galava is just outside the village, and poet William Wordsworth's former family home can be visited nearby at Rydal Mount & 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.

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.
