Charm and romance for two in the heart of Ambleside!
Sat pleasantly back from the bustle, but still truly central, this character cottage is the ideal hideaway for a couple. A private garden with views to Loughrigg and other famous Lakeland fells perfectly complements the oak-beamed interior, and makes for some real Lakelovers relaxation!
Full of true Old Lakeland style, Gale Hill Cottage will give you every reason to make cherished memories together.
A charming dining room with table and chairs for two is the ideal place to share a romantic meal, and you also have the option of eating outside in the secluded garden. The views from the patio are restful and stirring in equal measure, and this is a pleasing place to take a leisurely glass of wine or a morning coffee!
A thoughtful collection of books and games give you a great excuse for a cosy evening in, and the owners have provided DVD's, too, so you can put on a film of your choice on via the blu-ray player and relax by the wonderful slate-built inglenook fireplace. Just be careful not to fall asleep too quickly on the supremely comfortable leather sofas!
Of course, you will want to get out and about, too, and this is where Gale Hill Cottage's central location really comes into its own. You are merely moments away from an excellent Thai restaurant, the Doi Intanon, and the plethora of cafes, pubs, eateries and independent shops that make Ambleside such a vibrant destination. Attractions abound, including two cinemas, a great recreation ground, varied artistic cultural exhibits and historical points of interest, and the celebrated Lake Windermere Steamers that cruise from Waterhead.
No doubt a primary reason for your stay will be the world renowned walking routes that begin from the town, and low and high-level trails abound, with the Rydal Round, Loughrigg, Wansfell, and the Fairfield Horseshoe among the essentials. And you always have the warming wood-burner, enchanting cottage garden, and cosy bed awaiting you after your adventures back at Gale Hill Cottage.
No matter how much activity you pack into your holiday with Lakelovers, we know you will leave fully rejuvenated after a stay with us here!
