Sensational views and luxurious loft living in the heart of the Lake District! The Loft is a delightfully traditional, yet fully upgraded gem, peacefully raised above the hubbub of popular Ambleside, yet perfectly placed to take advantage or all the local attractions and eateries. Picture windows let you gaze over the rooftops to the surrounding hills, and the views from The Loft really are something special. This is an unmatchable escape for two in the very most sought-after location!
Loughrigg Fell is in full sight from your apartment, changing through gorgeous ferny greens and rustic bracken browns during the year. The living space is wonderfully light and generously proportioned, and the feature exposed local-stone wall, with traditional cast iron wood-burner beneath the solid slate lintel, gives a real sense of authentic Lakeland. Old wooden beams sit high in the vaulted ceilings, and this is such a lovely place to relax together and plan your adventures.
You really can ditch the car while you're here; Ambleside has everything you need, and is so well connected on bus routes, while you can always hire mountain bikes to get properly acquainted with the surrounding scenery, or just put your boots on and wander out of your door onto the many first-class walking routes. You can tackle the fabulous day-walk of the famous Fairfield Horseshoe directly from The Loft, or a shorter stroll up to High Sweden Bridge, or cross the village to walk by the shores of Lake Windermere.
Of course, you will want to get on to the lake as well while you're here, and the steamers cruise serenely to Bowness and Lakeside, while row boats are easy to hire, and water-based adventures await at Low Wood Watersports Centre. And at the end of the day you have all the superb eateries and inns of Ambleside to discover, including the exceptionally cosy Golden Rule pub within stumbling distance, a locals' and walkers' favourite. At home, you have the most superbly appointed, elevated patio to indulge in a glass of wine or two together.
The Loft is that rare thing, a perfectly romantic country retreat for two set so peacefully, yet so conveniently for all Ambleside and the Lakes have to offer.
