A beautiful blend of the traditional country cottage and contemporary style with plenty of natural light and space, Oaklea occupies a quiet location elevated above Ambleside centre. A few minutes stroll away is one of the cosiest pubs in town and a favourite with the locals, The Golden Rule, and we think this is the ideal location for a pint while planning your days out!
Downhill from your holiday home, Ambleside is a cosmopolitan yet traditional slate-built Lakeland village, full of interest, independent shops, cosy cafes and high-end restaurants, and is probably the the best place in the country to buy your essential walking gear. Don't miss a trip on the Lake Windermere steamers from Waterhead!
It goes without saying that the walking opportunities here are limitless. Red Screes towers above you, and across the valley lies Loughrigg Fell, excellent for a lower level hill adventure. The famous Fairfield Horseshoe is right on your doorstep, too!
A beautiful use of stone and wood finishings makes Oaklea such a charming place to relax, and the garden lounge has french doors to the patio and secluded sun-trap garden. There is a wood-burner, too, for chillier days, and everything here is perfectly arranged for your comfort.
This is an idyllic Lakelovers escape for an exciting Ambleside adventure!
