About the Property

Ambleside: 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Apartment in Private in Grounds with Parking

On the 2nd floor of a converted traditional stone mansion, this light and comfortable apartment is ideally located between Ambleside and Waterhead at the north end of Lake Windermere. It is a perfect base for walkers, and for exploring all the cultural and sporting attractions of the area. It is close to the wide range of cafes, pubs and restaurants and other amenities in Ambleside and Waterhead. You will have a peaceful and comfortable place to sleep, as well as excellent views of sunsets over the fells from the living room.

The accommodation includes two bedrooms (king and double), living room, dining area, kitchen, ensuite bathroom and separate shower room, and allocated parking.

Situated a short walk from the shores of Windermere in a peaceful location on a knoll above Borrans Park, the property is set in over 4 acres of shared garden and mature woodland. The lounge and both bedrooms enjoy lovely views of the fells and Lake Windermere. The garden and visiting wildlife can be seen from the kitchen (deer often come and feed on the garden plants!). It is within walking distance of the amenities of Ambleside and Waterhead and has easy access to a wide variety of walks, both on the fells and along the lakeshore.

The apartment has a shared entrance and internal staircase to the second floor where the landing has space for coats and boots. The door to the apartment opens to an entrance hallway leading to the bedrooms and the living room. There is a double bedroom and a kingsize bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The living room has a flat screen colour Freeview TV, DVD, and HiFi. Both bedrooms and the lounge have views of Loughrigg and the Coniston range, and on a clear day the tips of the Langdale range can also be seen. From the windows there are excellent views of Borrans Park and the north end of Lake Windermere. The dining area has seating for up to four people. The kitchen has a fridge with small freezer box, dishwasher, microwave, electric oven and hob, washer/drier, and a seating area for two people to have a coffee while looking down at the garden. The bathroom has a double-ended slipper bath, handbasin, WC and heated towel rail. The shower room has a shower cubicle, handbasin, WC and heated towel rail.

Directly across the road from the property’s grounds there is an entrance to Borrans Park which stretches down to the shores of Lake Windermere and includes the ruins of the Roman fort of Galava.

The location is a walkers’ paradise, but there are plenty of other amenities. It is five minutes walk to Waterhead where there is a pub, restaurant, shops, Windermere Cruises (frequent ferries to other points on Lake Windermere), and boat or kayak hire. Ten minutes walk away is Ambleside itself, the heart of the southern lakes. This lively village boasts a host of cafes, restaurants and shops with walking gear, as well as three cinemas, mini golf, a park, tennis courts, bike hire, an indoor climbing wall, and the Armitt Museum. Slightly further afield in Windermere there is an excellent golf course and a mini golf in Bowness at the edge of the lake. For culture lovers, Blackwell arts and crafts house and garden overlooking Lake Windermere is 7 miles away, and Brantwood – John Ruskin’s house overlooking Coniston water - is 9 miles away, while Dove Cottage – the Wordsworth museum is 4 miles away in Grasmere.
