Located in the private falls development, overlooking majestic waterfalls and fells beyond and only a short walk from the bustling Lakeland village of Ambleside.

Light, spacious and stylish throughout, this lovely apartment in the pretty village of Ambleside boasts wonderful river and waterfall views. Sleeping six people over three bedrooms, it’s the perfect accommodation option for families or groups of friends who want to spend their days hiking at Loughrigg Fell or kayaking at Windermere, and their evenings taking in the pretty views from the apartment’s balcony or meeting the locals in the cosy pubs and restaurants of Ambleside.

Walk up the external stairs to the main door of your apartment and step inside. Take a moment to make yourself at home in the lounge before heading through to the stylish kitchen to cook yourself a delicious meal. Get the whole gang together to eat at the large dining table. After dinner, pour yourself a glass of something cool and crisp and enjoy some quality time on the balcony taking in the lovely views of the waterfalls. Alternatively, head to the lounge to chill out on the sofa and catch up on your favourite TV shows. When the day is done, you’ll find three gorgeous bedrooms on the first floor.

Get your loved ones together to explore Lake Windermere. Ambleside’s Waterhead Pier (1.5 miles) dates back to 1845 and offers ferry rides to Bowness, Newby Bridge, Wray Castle and Brockhole Visitor Centre. During the summer, you can even take a 1-mile horse-drawn carriage ride from the centre of Ambleside to Waterhead Pier. Back on dry land, take a stroll to Stock Ghyll Force (1 mile), a spectacular 70-foot-tall waterfall. If you’re lucky enough to be there in spring, the area from the viewing point is carpeted in daffodils. Or head off to the National Trust’s Stagshaw Gardens (2 miles) to stop and smell the rhododendrons and azaleas.

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.
