A little taste of divinity in God’s own country! Forming part of a historical Grade II listed chapel, this is a truly special holiday home boasting supreme character and charm. The arched windows, thick slate-built walls, and castellated tower above Chapel How have graced the elevated setting in popular Ambleside since the 16th Century, and this tasteful contemporary renovation is superbly presented to give our Lakelovers the perfect Lakeland holiday experience.
Raised above Ambleside in the sought-after conservation area of the village, the outlook here is only matched by the peace and quiet. Yet the bustling centre, brimming with excellent eateries and attractions, is just a 5 minute stroll away. The famous fells cluster around you, begging you to put your boots on and conquer the summits, while the wider Lake District is ripe for exploration from your Lakelovers vantage point. A wander to the lakeshore at Waterhead lets you do so in the most relaxing way possible: gliding over Windermere to Wray Castle, Bowness Bay or as far as Newby Bridge in the south on the celebrated steamers!
Not far from your property, with no need to even descend the hill into town, is your very own local, the well-loved Golden Rule Inn, a lovely place to gather in the evening for a pint to unwind after the day's adventures, and well-equipped with a fine selection of real ales. And in town, Zeffirellis Jazz Bar and Cinema gives you the chance to really unwind!
At home, the relaxation on offer is equally satisfactory. The supremely comfortable lounge invites you to cosy up around the feature fireplace, while the en-suite bedrooms bid you sleep sound and long, especially the romantic top-floor 'Belfry' room, which even has a decadent Italian roll-top bath for your complete rejuvenation! Exposed beams and all the authenticity expected from such a historic building bring character in abundance, and ensure you won't forget your stay with us here.
Whether you are a group of friends planning to explore the Lakes, or a family coming to enjoy a special holiday together, you'll find everything you could hope for at Chapel How.
