A truly romantic location awaits you at this incredible waterfall setting, Kingfisher Cottage has been extensively redeveloped and offers an incredible level of quality with luxurious features throughout.
Spacious yet cosy and intriguingly designed on three levels, it sits high above the beck, nestling into the side of Stockghyll Gorge and savouring the charm of the water cascading over the rocks below with woodland on the opposite bank.
Set within a select, beautifully renovated Bobbin Mill development on the edge of Ambleside village, it is within easy reach of cafes, shops, restaurants, pubs, cinemas, the lake and many walks which can be undertaken without using the car.

Despite the air of escape in this romantic Ambleside cottage, you'll find yourselves only a stroll away from the Lake District's most cosmopolitan village centre.

On the high street, you'll find contemporary shops, lazy cafes and tempting delis for stocking up the kitchen.
There are so many options for a special evening out. For a special treat, try The Glass House - a fabulous restaurant in an interesting historic building.

There's also the option to dine on the lake; Windermere Lake Cruises offer romantic evening buffet cruises with live music.
For exploring or walking in the Lake District National Park, Ambleside is a great place to start. Ditch your car and explore Bowness and Lakeside via the steamer cruises on Lake Windermere.
