Located on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, and set in the heart of the ever-popular Ambleside, 1 Oaklands is the ground floor of an impressive Victorian Lakeland residence, which has been beautifully and sympathetically re-modelled by the current owners. It offers unrivalled stylish and quality accommodation in a peaceful setting with surrounding fell views, but which is literally around the corner from the centre of the village, with its interesting shops, cafes and bars and a host of local eateries, attractions and amenities.
Accommodation in detail
The elegant entrance hall reflects the property's Victorian heritage and beckons you to what lies beyond. The fabulous, spacious sitting room is exquisitely co-ordinated to create a relaxing atmosphere where you can sit back and unwind. A Sonos wi-fi music system is installed.
The handcrafted and hand painted kitchen dining room is a creative and social space, complemented with a stunning tiled floor and traditional style wooden shutters. The hub of the house, it is extremely well equipped as you would expect to self-cater, including an electric range cooker, microwave, dish-washer, coffee machine and quality pots, pans and tableware.
A handy laundry and utility room off the kitchen doubles as a pantry and rear entrance for when you return in your muddy walking boots.
Two king size bedrooms are individually themed, one offering an en-suite up to the minute walk-in shower room, the other with direct access to the quality Victorian style house bathroom with shower over bath.
A single sofa bed is available in the main bedroom if required to suit your sleeping arrangements, provided the total number of guests does not exceed 4.
The property offers a delightful outside seating area, with comfortable outdoor furniture provided from where to sit and relax and take in the fell top views.
There is a private car parking space for one car immediately outside the front door and a guest car parking permit is available for a second vehicle to utilise the plentiful residents parking spaces in Millans Park itself.
Being so close, you can enjoy all that Ambleside has to offer on foot, and potentially have little need for your car during your stay.
Aside from the wonderful high and low-level walking available from the door for all abilities, other popular attractions include pitch and putt golf, tennis courts and an indoor climbing wall. The famous Hayes Garden World is minutes away, and well worth a visit, particularly magical in the run up to Christmas. For evening entertainment, the village boasts 3 cinemas showing all the latest film releases and regular live music sessions in several of the local bars and pubs.
A daytime or evening lake cruise along majestic Windermere is a real highlight to take in the superb views of her surrounding fell range, with regular departures from Waterhead, a 15-minute or so level walk away, or even quicker by the electric float which runs from the centre of the village throughout the main holiday season.
