Opulent Victorian ambience in Ambleside!
A perfectly presented Victorian residence, Bracken Howe will quickly become a second home for your party, and is the ideal base for spending special time with friends and family, and enjoying the best of Ambleside and the Lakes. Quality, refinement, and relaxation, not to mention a decadent hot-tub. Lakeland luxury!
This spacious property is packed full of period charm, and the classic wooden furnishings and fittings are complemented by stylish modern décor and an atmosphere of elegant relaxation.
Bring your party together in the classic dining room, and chill out in style in the tasteful drawing room, with its open fire and fine views. Unwind in front of the large, curved 3D 4K television with Sky Movies and Sports packages and BT Sports. Your sound experience will be as good as the visuals, with an excellent Naim music system, and another in the dining room! The kitchen has a fantastic range cooker, and all the mod cons you could hope for, while children will enjoy 'The Snug', a smaller reception room with a Playstation, X-box, and Nintendo Wii and a great selection of games. Meanwhile, broadband WiFi keeps you all well connected during your stay.
You will sleep soundly on a diet of happy times, fine local foods, and Lakeland air, and the five lovely bedrooms, three en-suite, will fully play their part, two of them boasting enchanting carved wooden kingsize four-poster beds. Little complementary touches like slippers, bath and hand towels and Orla Kiely toiletries add to your comfort.
The Lake District is a place to be outside as much as possible, and with a beautiful and secluded garden that allows access to nearby Rothay Park, a seriously decadent hot-tub and a large outdoor dining set, Bracken Howe gives you the perfect opportunity for al-fresco living. It is also sensationally well positioned for access to the bubbling Lakeland life of pretty Ambleside and for conquering the surrounding fells; indeed, it's a walkers paradise, with great routes straight from your doorstep.
