Modern Day, Ground Floor, Couples Retreat In The Very Heart of Ambleside Village

Couples will delight in this spacious, modern retreat created especially for two, offering superb facilities in a super handy, village location. All on the ground floor, Afton is very comfortably appointed with modern-day facilities to ensure you can instantly relax and unwind with your significant other. Sit back in one of two large, leather recliners while taking in the stunning views from the large picture windows of the Fairfield Horseshoe and surrounding fell range. The thoughtful owners, who live next door, provide a lovely welcome hamper and complimentary, refillable toiletries to ensure your holiday gets off to the best start.

The village centre is just around the corner making Afton the ideal base for a park up and walk trip. A host of attractions and amenities can be enjoyed en pied including some fantastic options for eating out either by day or night. Of course, the area is renowned for fabulous walking and hiking and the slopes of Loughrigg and Wansfell Pike can be reached within minutes from the property.

If you do fancy venturing out in the car, we can highly recommend the 17 mile trip from Ambleside to the market town of Keswick, voted the most beautiful route in Britain which passes no less than 5 lakes in one journey so be sure to have your camera at the ready.

    Lovely apartment, just right for 2, easy walk to the centre but in a quiet setting.
    Very light and spacious with the added bonus of a lovely garden and private parking space outside the door. Would certainly book again!
