Wrap yourselves in style and comfort right next to Ambleside’s iconic Bridge House!
Idle Mill 2 is an effortlessly graceful designer apartment in a former fulling mill at the heart of one of Lakeland's favourite villages. Elegance is the watchword here, and with the vibrant centre so easily accessible, this is a first-class choice for friends or a small family to spend quality time together.
Experience real 5-star opulence in your stylish apartment, and relax by the welcoming wood-burning stove after your days exploits in Ambleside. You will certainly get a great night's sleep in the superb bespoke master bedroom with its stylish French fireplace; indeed, both bedrooms enjoy superking-size beds and excellent en-suites. The floor-to-ceiling windows and charming glass viewing balcony of Idle Mill 2 help make the most of the setting, and the thoughtful design makes staying here such a pleasure.
The slate-built mill is pleasingly situated by Stock Beck, and you can sit outside on the riverside seating and soak it all in! We thoroughly recommend a meal out in the adjacent Fulling Mill restaurant. Part of the same converted mill as your own apartment, the eatery has a strong reputation for great food, along with a charming and characterful atmosphere. Ambleside is full of fabulous places to eat out, as well as many inns and wine bars, and the thriving night-life is part of the attraction here.
And to justify all that high living, we have some of the very finest fell-walking in the country all spread out for you right from your doorstep! Loughrigg Fell can be seen from your windows, while Wansfell and the famous Fairfield horseshoe also rise above the town. There are hundreds of lower level walks, too, of course, and so many things to see and do around this most popular of Lakeland destinations.
The character and contemporary elegance of Idle Mill 2 is hard to match, and this is one of our most sought-after holiday retreats.
