Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The unique setting of The River House, at the entrance to the Langdale Valley offers guests the opportunity of enjoying a riverside location and a luxurious bolthole, somewhere to relax, unwind and share precious moments together. Easy access can be had into nearby Ambleside, awash with a host of interesting shops, bars and restaurants and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities to experience but perhaps you'd prefer the tranquillity and beauty of the Langdales, on the doorstep, just waiting to be explored either by car, cycle or on foot.
The dramatic scenery will change with the seasons but you can be assured of constant quality and attention to detail in this beautifully designed home. The elegant kitchen dining room, with handcrafted units and exposed beams throughout is dominated by the red Aga and a modern wood burning stove and guests will marvel at the cleverly disguised pool table provided for your enjoyment - it's underneath the dining table! The unusually shaped lounge, furnished very much with your comfort in mind, enjoys an almost 360 degree view of the water, a soothing site and sound to enjoy at any time of the year.

About this location
The Lake District
Located right in the centre of the Lake District at the head of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is surrounded by beautiful scenery. This bustling, busy market town offers visitors numerous shops, cosy pubs and plenty of places to eat out.
Ambleside has easy access to the surrounding fells and mountains and is an excellent base from which to tour the Lake District. A short walk from the town centre is Stock Ghyll Force, a spectacular 70ft waterfall and to the southeast is Jenkins Crag (730ft), with its great views of Ambleside and the surrounding hills. Well worth a visit is Stagshaw Garden, a woodland garden with lovely floral displays set on a steep hillside overlooking Lake Windermere. From the garden walks lead through Skelghyll Woods to the fells beyond.
For the less energetic, there are strolls along the shore of Lake Windermere, boat trips down the lake and back, or maybe just potter around the many outdoor shops, craft shops and galleries before a good pub lunch.
Good golf at Windermere, Ulverston and Kendal. Other notable courses at Keswick, Silloth, Penrith and Carlisle.
