Ambleside House

A contemporary Lakeland home with six spectacular bedrooms, Ambleside House is a beautifully high quality, comfortable country house with breath-taking views across Loughrigg Fell and the surrounding hills of the charming Lake District landscape!

Take your time driving on the winding, narrow lane from the village as you soak up the tranquil atmosphere of this superb location. Your enormous open-plan living space is perfectly crafted into areas for relaxing, dining and cooking, with sumptuous sofas and a vibrant array of chairs around the large wall-mounted TV, with a set of large patio doors to one side through which natural light floods into the room, creating a warm, welcoming environment. To one side there is also a log burning stove, so you can stay warm and cosy even on the cooler evenings. At the far end of the room the large family dining area extends away from the living room with tons of room for all to gather and enjoy a feast together!

For your convenience, the kitchen sits alongside this area, continuing the modern, open-plan style, and is quite the chef’s dream! Two large fridges, a range cooker with a five-ring gas hob and electric and gas double ovens, a dishwasher and microwave are all assembled within this sparkling modern delight, with tons of work-space to boot! From here you can access the utility room in which you will also find a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a guest WC on this ground floor.
There are six elegant bedrooms in total: four super-king size rooms, one king-size and one double room, all of which include a wall-mounted TV and totally cosy and sophisticated contemporary furnishing! Five of the rooms have delightful ensuite bathrooms, while the sixth has a full family bathroom just opposite it. A range of free-standing bathtubs and double, walk-in showers will make you feel totally pampered, while all six bathrooms have underfloor heating adding to the super comfortable ambience of the entire property for your optimum enjoyment! 

And finally, the perfect spot for a little peaceful relaxation, your vibrant garden, with its fragrant flowerbeds and expansive lawn, has all the space you need for enjoying a cuppa in the sunshine! A patio on either side of the house, as well as a large lawn with space to run around, ensure all the group can get out and enjoy the fine weather together.

Just a mile away is the majestic Lake Windermere, the largest in the country! And what’s more, you’re just a five-minute walk from the charming shops, restaurants and cafes of the village of Ambleside! For those looking to get out and about in this breath-taking countryside, walks of all kinds, including the iconic Fairfield Horseshoe walk which goes past the front door, can be enjoyed literally from the doorstep. As well as mountain bike routes to suit all levels!
