In a tranquil spot with beautiful, natural surroundings, this luxurious apartment is a relaxing and comfortable solo escape or romantic getaway for two. Set above the popular resort of Ambleside, it’s the perfect base for exploring the Lake District and close to plenty of great places to eat and drink, too.

Filled with high-quality furnishings, this excellent destination is decorated with muted colours and natural textures to ensure a calm and restful environment. Hang up your coat in the spacious boot room and stroll into the open-plan living space, where you’ll immediately be drawn to the lovely views through the patio doors. A sleek kitchen with integrated appliances is fitted across one end of the room, with a dining table for two where you can enjoy the results of some creative cooking. The lounge area has a large sofa and a Smart TV for those evenings where all you want to do is get cosy indoors and get stuck into a book or stream a favourite programme. The king-size bedroom is super-stylish and has ample storage, and there’s a superb bathroom with a modern, free-standing bath and a separate walk-in shower. On the covered patio outside there’s furniture for dining al fresco while you appreciate the rural landscape, and you are also welcome to explore the extensive shared grounds.

The market town of Ambleside is packed with interesting shops and great places to eat, and it boasts an independent cinema, too. Walkers will love the spectacular countryside all around and there are plenty of opportunities for other outdoor adventures. The iconic Lake Windermere is just over 1 mile away, and here you can hire kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, boats and waterskis to get out on the water, or opt for a steamer cruise to take in the stunning scenery.

Well what can I say about this little gem. First of all I need to say a massive thank you for accommodating us on the same day/night as we arrived in the Lake District due to a disastrous start to our holiday (not associated with this cottage). The moment we pulled up to the cottage we just knew we was going to have a fantastic stay, very clean, veRead morery cosy, very quiet and relaxing. THE BED 10/10! The views were amazing - the overall stay was magical. Thank you so much. Definitely will return 5* Hide

5 star accommodation in a lovely setting. Nice and warm, beautiful bathroom and big comfy bed. Close to Ambleside and all its great amenities. Very steep hill back with limited pavement and street lighting.

We stayed at Willowbank Retreat for 5 days / 4 nights and it definitely wasnt long enough. It was so light, spacious and relaxing, I wouldnt hesitate to book again. It was really clean and had everything we needed. It was ideally located just a 10/15 minute walk from the town (up a rather steep hill but not too challenging). We were able to walk toRead more Rydal Caves/Loughrigg Fell/Wansfell Pike from our stay so never had to pay for additional car parking. Cant wait for our return visit. Hide

This is a beautifully furnished and comfortable apartment with lots of thought put into the finer details. Such as a light over the mirror in the bedroom and sockets for hairdryers etc. A very generous welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits and chocolate was provided. All from local outlets.

We enjoyed a lovely break at Willowbank Retreat which has everything you could want for a relaxing stay. My wife has already talked about a return next year. The only thing to be aware of is the steep clime up from the town and wasn't really on option on foot for us.
