Full description

Description Converted a good number of years ago from agricultural buildings that once served Oaks Farm, Simonstone is a unique bungalow which is quietly tucked away and yet is just a few minutes stroll away from the centre of Ambleside which offers an exceptional range of restaurants, cafes, traditional Lakeland inns, cinemas etc. Walks from the doorstep can also take you to the lake shore or to the high fells that surround this ever popular market town making this the perfect holiday let, lock up and leave weekend retreat or permanent residence in this beautiful part of the Lake District National Park.

The accommodation has been thoughtfully extended and improved over the years and yet still offers potential for further adaption if desired depending on your needs. Some may wish, for example to consider the relatively simple inclusion of the utility / shower room with the kitchen creating an excellent family room, whilst others may prefer to retain the existing design.

The conservatory is the most recent addition, providing a lovely bright space in which to enjoy the colourful yet easily managed gardens which afford a good deal of privacy and tranquillity in this lovely 'tucked away' setting.

The bungalow is virtually detached being linked only to a very small stone outbuilding belonging to a neighbouring property and is highly recommended for early viewing. 

Location From the centre of Ambleside head north along Rydal Road turning right at the mini roundabout signposted Kirkstone. Bear right just after The Kirkstone Foot Apartments and in to Oaksfield. Proceed along this road and on to the private section of the road where Simonstone can be found on the right hand side before The Falls is reached.
