Location description from owner

The England region

The Lake District, also commonly known as The Lakes, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous not only for its lakes and its mountains (or fells) but also for its associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets.

The majority of the area was designated as the Lake District National Park in 1951. It is the largest of the thirteen National Parks in England and Wales, and the second largest in the UK (after the Cairngorms). It lies entirely within the modern county of Cumbria, shared historically by the counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire.

All the land in England higher than three thousand feet above sea level lies within the National Park, including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. It also contains the deepest and longest lakes in England, Wastwater and Windermere, respectively.

Ambleside

Ambleside is a beautiful market town. Situated on Lake Windermere, it offers a whole array of activities. You can cruise the lake on a steamer, go canoeing, yachting, rowing, fishing, sailing and do various other watersports. Ambleside has lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. For italian food visit Dodds restaurant, for chinese takeaway the Lucky Dragon is the best, there are 2 Thai restaurants and they are both excellent. Lucy4s is great, it has tapas, perfect for sharing. Lucys on a plate is also delightful, as is The Glass House.
For a traditional lakeland pint visit The Drunken Duck where they brew their own ales. This is located near Outgate. Directions for all of these places can be given if required upon booking.
Of course there is a vast amount of walks available near Ambleside which you can buy maps for in the village if needed. You can set off walking from the house itself and walk the famous Langdale Valley.

Skelwith Bridge is a short walk away where there is a beautiful cafe and shop called Chesters which overlooks the weir of the river brathay and is very popular. Make sure you get a scone as they are homemade and delicious! The best ever!!! Also the Skelwith Bridge Hotel is great for pub food and a drink.

On your stay make sure you buy some Grasmere Gingerbread as it has won awards and is truly amazing.
There is a high-wire assault course in the trees at Grizedale Forest which is called Go Ape......not for the faint hearted or people scared of heights.

“Beautiful setting”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2015

We had a wonderful week at halfway house, very relaxing and the setting is just beautiful. The cottage itself provides all you need. Our only comment would be that the furnishings and some decor appear tired and in need of an update, however this did not stop us enjoying our stay. Very accessible for Ambleside and Conniston and we managed to put our kayak in the river 3 min walk up the road. Garden is secure so our dog was happy mooching around as we enjoyed a drink on the decking! Liiz the property owner was very helpful and friendly.

“Cosy cottage, away from hustle & bustle!”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2014

it was a lovely and cosy apartment with very well furnished and quaint furniture. Especially excited about the adorable utensils and cooking pots which made cooking dinner much easier for my friends and I. Overlooks a nice pond with a scenic mountainous region at the back. Wished the fountain/well and garden behind was better maintained though! but other than that, it was a lovely cottage and would look forward to coming back again (:

“Lovely accommodation.”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Halfway House. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped and in a superb location. Liz, the owner was very helpful and accommodating of our needs. We will certainly consider returning.

“Superb place to stay”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2013

Halfway House was the perfect destination for our Valentine's trip. The house is a delight and the situation just couldn't be better. It was snowy - very snowy - when we got there at night so we were not aware of the beautiful views from the property. When we drew back the curtains on Valentine's morning we were amazed. We want to return now to experience a meal on the verranda on a sunny summer evening.
