Location Head out of Ambleside on the A591 for Grasmere, passing Rydal Water and Grasmere Lake along the way. Upon reaching the mini-roundabout take the second exit (i.e. continue along the A591) and carry along the road until you see the Swan Inn Hotel upon your right hand side. Turn left opposite the Inn onto Swan Lane and continue down past the public car park on your left. The apartment is found on your left hand side just beyond the Oak Bank Hotel, above Grasmere Pharmacy and Sara Arundale's Bistro. 

Description Oakbank is a bright and modern apartment in the very heart of beautiful Grasmere, which is as world famous for its literary connections as it is for its astounding scenery.

Approached via an external staircase at the rear and via a two-tier patio-style garden - a real sun trap here on the south-western side of the apartment, the accommodation is well designed and includes an open plan L-shaped living room and kitchen both with lovely views and direct access onto the patio. The kitchen is tastefully presented and well-equipped and is supplemented by a useful utility room. The dual-aspect living room is a delightful area in which to relax and enjoy the view. There are two double bedrooms, both of which are well-proportioned and the master bedroom enjoys a luxury four piece bathroom, perfect after a long day on the fells. There is also a modern house shower room and of course lovely sunny patio gardens at this 1st floor level. Car parking is available in the rear yard, whilst annual car parking permits can be acquired for the nearby public car park if desired. All in all, this is the perfect holiday let or lock-up-and-leave weekend retreat in one of the Lake District's most beautiful and popular villages.
