Above pretty Ambleside, on the banks of Stock Ghyll waterfalls, this luxuriant apartment is a part of an exclusive development of an old bobbin mill. The peace of the secluded location and the little river running by are key to the character of this superb Lakeland getaway, and the tranquility and homeliness of Beechside will ensure a truly magical break in the Lakes.
Resonating quality throughout, this elegant apartment will provide you with the perfect base for your special holiday with us. A variety of excellent bathing facilities, first-class bedrooms and a spacious and thoughtfully decorated living space with great natural light make Beechside a really luxurious choice.
The comfortable interior will let you feel at home as soon as you arrive, and the wonderful veranda and balcony allows your party to enjoy a mellow glass of wine or two while overlooking the river of Stock Ghyll and the lovely woodlands. It really is a charming setting, and to see the falls in spate and the trees showing the soft greens of a new spring or changing to their autumn glory is truly beautiful.
Hours of pleasure are to be had from Beechside's thoughtfully provided reading room, where you can immerse yourselves in local culture, and decide on the very best places to visit to enjoy your special time away to the fullest.
Ambleside itself is a premium village destination in the Lakes, ever popular with holidaymakers and mountaineers. The pretty slate buildings and winding streets are crammed with mouthwatering eateries, craft shops, outdoor stores and quirky independent gift shops. A wonderful independent cinema and excellent recreation ground, as well as access to the famous Lake Windermere Steamers and some of the very finest hill-walking in the county, means that your stay at Beechside will be full of activity and happy memories.
