Property code: SZ040

The beautiful apartment boasts far-reaching rural views and is perfectly placed for exploring the quaint town of Ambleside, as well as enjoying some exhilarating fell walking.

This bright first-floor apartment is 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 three bright and airy bedrooms: a king-size with its own en-suite shower room, a second king-size 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 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.

Inside, the open-plan kitchen/dining area is a fantastic social space, ideal for this wonderful home from home. The well-equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, built-in microwave, fridge/freezer and handy dishwasher meaning there's no need to fight over who has to do the washing up. Gather round the wooden dining table and compare notes on the day's events over a delicious home cooked meal. Why not throw open the sliding doors here and bring the outside in, whatever the weather

The living area has a three-seater sofa and two armchairs, all are 'Stressless Recliners' so ideal for relaxing after a day out exploring. For entertainment there's a wall-mounted Smart TV, with access to all the major catch up channels and Netflix (remember your own log in details), there's also a USB port so you can play your own music too. Or simply enjoy the wonderful view over the surrounding countryside and fells beyond from the large window.

Down the corridor you'll find the three lovely bedrooms. First up is the spacious master bedroom. With a king-size bed and its own en-suite shower room (with WC, wash basin and shower cubicle), this is a wonderful bedroom, just perfect for indulging in a long lie in. Next up is another king-size room, with a useful built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage. Thanks to its large window, this room is bright and airy and has a delightful outlook over the surrounding greenery. This bedroom contains a zip-and-link bed and so can also be made up as a twin upon request. Last but by no means least we have the delightful single room, which has a handy chest of drawers for storage and shares the same lovely view as the second king-size bedroom. The modern family shower room has a fantastic large walk-in shower (as well as the WC and wash basin), perfect for reinvigorating muscles tired from walking.

As well as having access to the delightful shared garden, Ambleside Heights also has its own private balcony off the dining area. With a table and chairs, it's a lovely spot equally suited for a peaceful morning cuppa or a refreshing G&T after a day out exploring.

Outside you'll also find a garage for storing bikes, perfect if you fancy getting out and about on two wheels. There is parking for one car in front of the garage (you could also park a small car in the garage depending on its size) and should you need it, there's also space to park a second car in the communal parking area - a real bonus so close to the centre of Ambleside.

The apartment is exactly as described and the view was spectacular. I enjoyed a glass of wine on the balcony after a long walk as we were lucky to have good weather.

This flat has the most stunning view! The flat is well equipped for cooking facilities and the beds are very comfortable. Parking is also good although a bit on the tight side if you have a large vehicle.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
