This delightful property, lying within Ambleside’s conservation area, sits on the original road into the village. Its slightly elevated position provides lovely views across the village to Loughrigg Fell and the more distant Coniston and Fairfield ranges. The ideal base for a relaxed, sociable holiday in the very heart of the Lakes, Bramblebank has ample parking, a lovely enclosed garden and views from most windows tempting even the most wary of walkers to enjoy some wonderful walks from the door. Or alternately, within a couple of minutes, you can be in the middle of a lively, ’out-doorsy’, yet fashionable village, with its wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as three cinemas, tennis courts, mini golf, Hayes Garden Centre and the excellent children’s play area in Rothay Park. Beautiful Windermere Lake, only half a mile to the south, offers various boating options and the famous steamers for trips out to Wray Castle (National Trust), Brockhole Visitor Centre or further afield to Bowness.
Bramblebank is a very stylish and well-presented property and being set over three floors, offers flexible accommodation for the larger party. Equally however, the house would be ideal for a smaller party who want simply to spread out. A neutral theme throughout Bramblebank has been cleverly dressed with co-ordinated colours and comfortable furniture to continue the contemporary styling and to provide calm, peaceful atmosphere, perfect for a relaxing holiday. The spacious, well-equipped kitchen/dining room is a great social area for guests to enjoy and ensures that hard working chefs can join in with re-living the day’s highlights and adventures, and the planning of the next day’s activities.

About the local area

Located right in the centre of the Lake District at the head of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is surrounded by beautiful scenery. This bustling, busy market town offers visitors numerous shops, cosy pubs and plenty of places to eat out.

Ambleside has easy access to the surrounding fells and mountains and is an excellent base from which to tour the Lake District. A short walk from the town centre is Stock Ghyll Force, a spectacular 70ft waterfall and to the southeast is Jenkins Crag (730ft), with its great views of Ambleside and the surrounding hills. Well worth a visit is Stagshaw Garden, a woodland garden with lovely floral displays set on a steep hillside overlooking Lake Windermere. From the garden walks lead through Skelghyll Woods to the fells beyond.

For the less energetic, there are strolls along the shore of Lake Windermere, boat trips down the lake and back, or maybe just potter around the many outdoor shops, craft shops and galleries before a good pub lunch.
