Ambleside Heights is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Ambleside Heights is a bright first floor apartment, within easy walking distance of the centre of Ambleside. Inside you'll find a fantastic open plan living-dining-kitchen area that's a great sociable space. There are 3 bright and airy bedroom: a kingsize with its own en-suite shower room, a second kingsize room (that can also be made up as a twin upon request) and a lovely single, and the family shower room has a large walk in shower. Off the dining room is a private balcony, with table and chairs it's a lovely spot for an early morning cuppa or early evening aperitif. Guests at Ambleside Heights will also have access to the delightful shared gardens and the apartment has its own parking space and a garage for storing bikes (you could also park a small car in the garage depending on its size), all a real treat so close to the centre of Ambleside.
Ambleside itself is a bustling village with a great selection of outdoor and independent shops, as well as a number of different eateries to try during your stay - why not treat yourselves to dinner and a film at Zeffirellis with its multiscreen cinema? If local history is more your thing then a trip to the Windermere Jetty Museum is a must, as is The World of Beatrix Potter at nearby Bowness. Take the ferry across the lake to Hawkshead where you can even visit Potter's former home at Hill Top. There are plenty of walks on offer from Ambleside. Head up Loughrigg or Wansfell Pike for stunning panoramic views of The Lakes, or tackle the Fairfield Horseshoe for a longer day out on the fell tops.
Take a scenic drive through The Lakes to Grasmere, another charming Lakeland village that's certainly worth a visit. Spend some time looking around Dove Cottage, once home to William Wordsworth, before stocking up on the village's famous gingerbread. Continue north to the market town of Keswick. Known as the adventure capital of the North Lakes, sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies to test your adrenaline! A day spent in the magnificent Langdale Valley is never a day wasted. Explore the woods around Blea Tarn or follow the riverside path to beautiful Elterwater, whilst serious hill walkers will delight at the choice of fells on offer including a number from Alfred Wainwright's famous list.
