Ambleside View is a fantastic first floor apartment. A short walk from the centre of Ambleside and with delightful views thanks to its elevated position, you really have got the best of both worlds here. Inside you'll find modern and comfortable accommodation for 4. There's a great well equipped kitchen-diner and spacious living area that's perfect for relaxing evenings in. There are 2 lovely kingsize bedrooms, one with its own en-suite shower room, and a modern family shower room with a fabulous wak-in shower. Off the dining area is a private balcony; with an outdoor table and 2 chairs, it's a wonderful place to sit and admire the views. As well as all this, there are also delightful shared gardens to enjoy, a garage for storing bikes and parking (you could also park a small car in the garage depending on its size) - all a real bonus so close to the centre of Ambleside.

Leave the car where it is and head into the centre of Ambleside, just a 10 minute walk away. There are a great choice of independent and outdoor shops for a spot of retail therapy and plenty of different eateries to try out. Don't forget to bring your walking boots, there are plenty of fantastic walks in and around Ambleside. Local fell Loughrigg can be tackled straight from the front door; short but steep, the fantastic views from the top are certainly worth the climb. For a lower level walk, follow the quieter Under Loughrigg road to beautiful Rydal Water. Enjoy a peaceful lakeside picnic before continuing on to Grasmere where you can stock up on the village's famous gingerbread before starting the return journey. If you prefer to get out and about on 2 wheels, nearby Wansfell Pike is a popular choice for mountain bikers, whilst road bikers can challenge themselves with the climb up Kirkstone Pass.

Explore bustling Bowness-on-Windermere just down the road from Ambleside. Admire the yachts in the harbour or hire a motor boat and take to the water yourself. If you'd prefer someone else to do the hard work then hop on the launch and enjoy a leisurely cruise round the water. Head north to Keswick, the adventure capital of the North Lakes. Sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies; have a go at raft building, canoeing, ghyll scrambling or tackle the Via Ferrata at Honister Slate Mine - for the very brave only!
