This idyllic retreat within the historic 'Stepping Stones' country house, once home to Wordsworth's family, stands at the foot of Loughrigg Fell. It overlooks the famous stepping stones crossing the River Rothay which leads to close-by Rydal Water and is surrounded by stunning countryside scenes.
Stableman's apartment cottage features traditional beams and fabulous vaulted ceilings combined with tastefully designed interiors. With peaceful landscapes and an abundance of walks on its very doorstep, yet the village of Ambleside only a short distance away, this is a special place to fully embrace the sought-after Lake District lifestyle.
Park in the grounds of Stepping Stones, go up stone steps and walk through gardens to your own private patio area and front door. Entrance leads into a fully equipped kitchen and dining area with traditional vaulted ceilings and garden views. Two steps lead up to a cosy lounge with comfortable seating, flat screened TV, DVD and stereo. From the lounge two steps lead to a hallway, turning right leads to the ensuite double bedroom (double bed) and shower room, and in the opposite direction to the king size and single bedrooms and bathroom. The lovely bedrooms with pitched ceilings and Velux windows combine well with the character of the living and dining areas. There are stunning fell top views from all bedrooms. Outside there are beautiful views from the garden and a private patio area complete with garden furniture to enjoy al-fresco living.
The bedroom layout is attractive for just one couple wishing for more space, for a family/group of up to five or for two couples to holiday together.
We have 2 free parking spaces to allow for this accommodation flexibility.
Stableman's is the perfect peaceful place to stay being in a stunning location with so many walks from the doorstep, yet convenient for bustling Ambleside and easy access to many parts of the Lakes.
A truly idyllic base to spend your holiday.
3 NIGHT WEEKEND & 3/4-NIGHT MID-WEEK BREAKS AVAILABLE IN LOW SEASON (all linen & heating/electricity included)
Please note that due to the layout within the cottage and steps up to/through the garden to reach it, we regret that we will not accept families with babies or children under 5 years old.
