Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Beautifully situated on the lower slopes of Loughrigg Fell just a short stroll across the park from the centre of Ambleside. Loughrigg Brow can be reached by car, taking the A591 out of the centre of Ambleside as if travelling towards Grasmere. Follow this road to Rydal, past the Ambleside Cricket Club and turn left over Pelter Bridge, signposted Under Loughrigg, which runs alongside the river. Continue along this lane until you pass over the second cattle grid and the old stone arched foot bridge which crosses back over the river into the park is seen on the left hand side. Immediately on your right there are the wrought iron gates leading to the driveway of Loughrigg Brow. Proceed up the driveway and there is plenty of visitor parking to supplement the private parking space.  

Description The inscription "Welcome - Gods providence is mine inheritance" over the entrance door to this impressive grade II listed building gives an inkling as to its history. Built in 1863 for the then vicar of Ambleside Canon Bell, this elegant building has lost none of its original charm and character during the sympathetic sub-division which has created ten individual apartments which now make up Loughrigg Brow.

A highly successful 5* holiday with Heart of the Lakes (www.heartofthelakes.co.uk), this beautifully appointed apartment can be approached either via the impressive original staircase or via the convenience of a modern lift and is an absolute delight from start to finish with plenty of space for all to enjoy and beautiful views from every window.

Set in approximately 10 acres of both formal and informal gardens, which includes a lovely tennis court which was substantially refurbished in recent years, the setting could hardly be improved - particularly when you consider that all that central Ambleside has to offer is just a short stroll away across the park.

For all its style, luxury and convenience however, it is the stunning panoramic views looking south and west which will abide longest in the memory of those who view or have been fortunate enough to stay here. The ever changing scenery perhaps epitomises everything that is wonderful about the stunning beauty of the Lake District National Park.

The accommodation itself has been thoughtfully designed with interesting shallow bay windows and a superb split level living room and includes a private entrance hall, fitted cloaks room, a lovely family kitchen, a superb living room, en suite facilities to both double bedrooms, private car parking, a garage and of course wonderful communal grounds.

Despite being a highly successful holiday let this apartment would equally suit as a luxurious lock up and leave weekend retreat or indeed a permanent home in the best of locations.
