Savour a group holiday to remember when you book this spacious holiday home in Ambleside. Sleeping 16 guests and also welcoming four happy hounds, this traditional, stone retreat has seven bedrooms and sits right at the centre of the vibrant Lakeland town, where it looks out across the rooftops towards the magnificent mountains. Enjoy being within 400 metres of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, and just 0.5 miles from Waterhead, right on the shores of scenic Windermere. Strike out on walks beside the lake or in the fells. Plan group excursions to other Cumbrian towns and villages, and organise outdoor activities such as canoeing, sailing and paddleboarding.

Enter this property that dates back to the 18th century and you’ll notice its many character features. Discover a generous boot room where you can leave your walking gear after long hikes, then amble through into the kitchen to put the kettle on for a cup of tea. There is everything you need here for preparing hearty feasts to keep your party well fuelled throughout your stay. This includes an enormous urn and a good-sized range-style oven, plus a dishwasher to make clearing up easy. There is also a handy utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, plus space for three bikes. Serve meals in the impressive, light-filled dining room then head through to the lounge to fire up the wood burner, play games together and watch the Smart TV. At the end of each wonderful day, climb the stairs to find a king-size bedroom and a twin, both with hand basins, and a single and a family room, all on the first floor. The family room features a four-poster double bed, plus a single. There is also a family bathroom and a shower room up here, plus two separate WCs and four private shower cubicles. Make your way up to the floor above to a single room, a king-size bedroom with a handbasin, and a dormitory with five single beds. Two more WCs and a family shower room are also at this level. Wake up to glorious views then make a cup of coffee to enjoy out in the fresh air on the bench in the small garden. You’ll find parking for three cars at the bottom of a slight slope, which must be approached carefully, especially by low vehicles.

We have just got back from a fantastic weekend in Ambleside. We were on a team build so needed a large house to accommodate us all. The group were really impressed with the accommodation. The house was spacious, the rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. There was an abundance of showers so no queues in the morning. The kitchen was well eqRead moreuipped and the dining room was lovely. The garden furniture was a welcome addition too. The location is fantastic. Everyone wants to return next year. Hide

A great weekend in a great location, ideal for families and walkers, the boot room is great when youve got wet gear from a days walking . The house is a little quirky but has everything you need and the beds are comfy. We stayed 3 nights, with at one time 12 people and 3 dogs, it ticked all our boxes. Look forward to returning
