Town centre location

Ambleside is one the Lake District’s most popular and vibrant towns, sitting at the head of Lake Windermere. Tucked away on a quiet road with private parking (gold dust in Ambleside!), the property is within a five minute walk of all the fabulous amenities that Ambleside has to offer – shops, restaurants, parks, even a cinema.

Leave your car on the driveway as you enjoy doorstep access to both tourist attractions and outdoor activities – beautiful walks, cycle trails and waters. Entry is from the private driveway adjacent to your very own waterfall.

A seven minute stroll brings you to Water Head, the head of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake. From here you can hop on a leisure ferry, hire a boat or venture out on a kayak.
