Location description from owner

The England region

Located in the heart of the English Lake District national park, Tarn House is just two miles from the market town of Ambleside yet also delightfully secluded on the fell-side of Loughrigg and a five minute walk from the peaceful gem of Loughrigg Tarn. The Lake District is one of the most beautiful regions of the English countryside. From the dramatic fells to the clear lakes, the landscape possesses a charm that has inspired people down the ages, from John Ruskin and Beatrix Potter to William Wordsworth and Alfred Wainwright.The area is designated as a National Park, helping to ensure the natural wonder of the landscape is carefully preserved and managed for future generations to enjoy.

Skelwith Bridge

One of the many benefits of Tarn House is its central location in the Lakes. Situated in Loughrigg, a small group of properties on the side of Loughrigg Fell, extensive walking routes set out direct from the front door, with Loughrigg itself rising up behind the property and the Langdale valleys sweeping away to the west.- Over Loughrigg to the north – an energetic half-hour walk away – you descend into the vale of Grasmere, historic home to William Wordsworth. A short walk down the valley is picturesque Rydal Water.- North-West – a 20-minite drive over the Kirkstone Pass (traffic and weather permitting) – is Ullswater, a popular sailing and open-water swimming destination but also the traditional starting point for exploring not only Helvellyn (via Striding Edge) and its rugged neighbours, but also the wilderness of the High Style range, with its shy herds of fell ponies and red deer.- Southwest takes you to Coniston Water, its steam-powered Gondola doing regular trips to John Ruskin's historic home at Brantwood. From there you gain fantastic views over the Coniston range, dominated by the fells of Wetherlam and Coniston Old Man.- Running to an altogether gentler pace, the hamlet of Skelwith Bridge is just half-a-mile from the cottage to the west, where the Skelwith Bridge Hotel and Talbot Bar serve good food and ales .- The bustling market town of Ambleside is just two miles away to the east of the cottage – a five-minute drive or a 20-30 minute fell run if you need to build up an appetite. There you will find a large variety of shops, from hardware stores to bookshops and many specialist outdoor gear shops. Ambleside is also home to plenty of pubs and restaurants, including Italian, Thai, two Indian and two Chinese restaurants, as well as Ziffrellis, the five-screen cinema and jazz venue.- At the south end of Ambleside – and again, just a five-minute drive from the cottage – is Waterhead, the top-most tip of Lake Windermere and stopping point for the famous Windermere ferries.- A few miles to the northwest of the cottage, go north or west to visit either of the Langdale valleys, encompassing some of England's most breathtaking scenery as well as the Three Shires Inn, Britannia Inn and Wainwrights pub.
