Lakeland luxury literally a stone’s throw from Lake Windermere!
Enjoying an outstanding location at Waterhead, this gem of a Lakeland retreat is a traditional slate-built cottage with all the contemporary comforts you could hope for. Stay with Lakelovers here to enjoy the timeless enchantment of Waterhead and the vibrance of Ambleside.
Your proximity to the pier at Waterhead ensures that you will spend one or more days cruising on the famous steamers, and this a wonderful way to enjoy your special holiday at Hawthorn Cottage. Waterhead might be described as the port of Ambleside, and the comings and goings of the rowing boats, steamers, sailing yachts, and craft of all kind adds endless interest to gazing across the waters to the scenic Lakeland hills. You can take a boat trip to Wray Castle on the west bank to enjoy at serene day of walking and picnicking, or travel to bustling Bowness-on-Windermere, or perhaps go as far as the Lakes Aquarium at the far southern tip of Windermere.
Ice-cream parlours and cafes are all around you at Waterhead, and close by is beautiful Borrans Park. Ambleside centre is just 10 minutes pleasant stroll from your front door, with all the cosmopolitan delights of this most sought-after Lake District village. A path just across the road sets you en-route for Wansfell, through the pretty Skelghyll woodlands, and from the top you can look down to your Lakeland retreat, and enjoy the majesty lake and mountains spread out before you. The walking all around is superb, and Ambleside a mecca for walkers, climbers and mountain-bikers.
Returning to Hawthorn Cottage you have all the comforts you need to relax and replenish. A luxurious and stylish designer bathroom with his-and-hers sinks, an elegant open-plan living space, including a kitchen full of style and gadgetry, and high-quality furnishings throughout ensure your stay here with Lakelovers is as perfect as the location.
