Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Location Kirkstone Foot Apartments are most easily accessed from our office on foot. Leave the office and cross Rydal Road, passing through the passageway signed "Footpath to North Road". Follow this through to North Road, taking time to admire the waterwheel at the Giggling Goose on your left and cross over; Peggy Hill is on the opposite side following a steep but short slope. The side entrance to Kirkstone Foot apartments can be found a short distance up the hill on the right hand side with Rowan being situated to the left of the gravelled driveway. 

Description Wonderfully placed in the oldest part of Ambleside, sitting above the village and yet enjoying a delightfully quiet setting with a westerly aspect and very pleasing views this self contained bungalow style property is superbly located in a single storey wing of the former Kirkstone Foot Hotel. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle this bright and welcoming home is just a short stroll down Peggy Hill from all that the heart of bustling Ambleside has to offer. Whether it is the traditional Inns, cinemas, shops or cafes that attract you or the ability to step out of the door and walk up Wansfell or around the Fairfield Horseshoe which appeals, there is something for everyone here.

Easily managed, whether as a popular holiday let or lock up and leave retreat (see note below), Rowan also has that comfortable ambience which is hard to put your finger on, you just know that it instantly feels right when you step through the door. Come and see for yourself.
