Stylish And Comfortable, Ground Floor Retreat Set Minutes From Waterhead, Ambleside

1 Lane Head is a super comfortable and spacious retreat located on the fringes of popular Ambleside in a quiet, residential location known as Fisherbeck.  Forming the ground floor and major portion of this modern Lakeland residence, the spacious stylish accommodation here at 1 Lane Head provides a practical layout suitable for two couples or a smaller family holidaying together.

A gentle, five minutes stroll from 1 Lane Head leads you to the shores of Windermere;  soak up the stunning vistas of England’s largest lake against a glorious backdrop of her surrounding fell range then saunter back up into the village on foot or hop on the electric cart which offers regular trips throughout the day into Ambleside. The village is well stocked with several mini-markets, award-winning butchers and bakers, ideal for those who prefer to fully self-cater and there’s a good selection of gift shops and galleries for that special memento to remind you of your trip.


Take In The Fine, South Facing Views From The Strategically Placed Conservatory

With its own private entrance, enter into a stylish, oak fitted kitchen with an excellent range of appliances to include an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer and useful drying cabinet, ideal for when you’ve been caught in a Lakeland shower. The sitting room,  just off the inner hallway has a gas fireplace, TV with Freeview/FreeSat and a DVD player, the owners have provided a library of CDs and DVDs for your enjoyment. The separate dining room lends itself to family brunches and dinners and once you’ve eaten, take a seat in the adjacent, south-facing conservatory to enjoy more of those fine views from the comfort of your armchair. Both the sitting and dining room have patio doors leading directly out to the terrace.

Three fashionable bedrooms are prettily decorated and offer comfortable mattresses to ensure a good nights rest, one double, one twin and a single. The large double and twin bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes and all three rooms share in a contemporary house bathroom with a powerful shower over a P-shaped bath, handbasin and WC.

Outside, there’s a south-facing, terraced garden to enjoy at the front with a gently sloping lawn and little stream – do be sure to supervise your little ones. Outdoor furniture is provided.  A second entrance door, off the main inner hallway, provides a second entrance to the outside which is also used by the other property here at 1 Lane Head.

Parking is available on the driveway for two cars.

Please note: The other portion of the property shares the same entrance gate and has access to its own garden and parking area within the grounds.

    A brilliant home for the family Wonderful views and very peaceful home

  • Jacob says:

    Nice place had everything we needed and we all decided we would stay in the house again if we are up again.

  • Michael says:

    Fantastic place with great views and only a 5min walk from the centre of Ambleside. Loads of room and warm in the winter and spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend!!

  • Gareth says:

    Good location 5 mins walk above Ambleside. The conservatory allows you to savour the views around you. The shared internal door with a small flat above is not an issue as it’s locked and the glass is distorted. Spacious ground floor, plenty of room for a family of four with two teenagers. Good WiFi speed. Looking forward to returning

  • Ruth says:

    Great location with parking on site. Key box a bit hard to find if you arrive in the dark! Lovely garden and views.

  • Hannah says:

    Great reception rooms, wonderful view, very handy location for the village, Windermere and lots of walks & easy check-in/out with the keybox.

  • Lousie says:

    I have stayed in Ambleside many times, but this flat is the best place that I have ever stayed. The flat is large and the views are stunning. It was very clean and the booking experience was very easy. I will definitely be visiting again.
