The Gallery (211)
from £45 /night help
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Lovingly converted from an old coach house, this fabulous 5 star studio apartment enjoys stunning view towards Lake Windermere. The Gallery is found in a peaceful, pretty location at the head of a private country lane - one of a few select dwellings. Close to Ambleside, you'll enjoy the best of both worlds; explore the delights of the lively village and lake shore, or hide away in blissful tranquility. The unique open plan accommodation has been furnished with no expense spared, to create a contemporary retreat with an infectious sense of calm. You'll find everything you need to relax, pamper and dine together - all the time enjoying one of the most enviable outlooks in the area.
Accommodation in detail
Private parking for 1 car. Traditional entrance porch with space for walking clobber. A spatial flow staircase leads to the first floor accommodation - a very spacious open plan area that's cleverly arranged to provide a sense of space.
Maple storage units surround a king-size bed. Dressing area and luxurious bathroom with whirlpool bath and power shower. The main living area is positioned to enjoy the scenery, with chic designer furnishings. The kitchen sits in a corner of its own, excellently equipped for romantic meals in. Outside you can wander through the tranquil grounds, or take a seat with a glass of wine!
The Gallery enjoys a prime Lake District location - whatever style of holiday you're looking for! The property lies within a select handful of converted properties, close to the shores of Lake Windermere and almost half-way between the popular villages of Ambleside and Windermere (with Bowness-on-Windermere also only a few miles away!). What's more, we highly recommend a romantic drive up to the Queen's Head at Troutbeck (to your north east) then over the Kirkstone Pass to serene Ullswater. An unforgettable day out with unforgettable scenery!
Windermere village is the perfect place to stock up the kitchen. You'll find a Booths supermarket there, stocking fine local produce as well as everyday essentials. Windermere also has a train station, and a range of local shops, pubs. Just a couple of miles down the road from Windermere, you'll find Bowness village on the east shores of the lake. Lively nightlife, restaurants and shops line the high street, and hire boats are a popular attraction in the Bowness Bay.
Ambleside lies to your north, via a scenic drive on the A591 (voted Britain's favourite stretch of road!). The pretty historic village nestles on the northern shore of the Lake, and has grown to become one of the Lake District's most cosmopolitan communities without losing its traditional charm. Ambleside is a lovely place to while away a day, and to enjoy a romantic meal by night. Some of the finest restaurants in the Lake District are found in and around Ambleside. Cruises on Lake Windermere can be taken from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre.

The 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.
