Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy Panoramic Vistas of the Fairfield Horseshoe

Brackenber is a truly stunning Lakeland retreat, the perfect place to spend precious time with your nearest and dearest and create magical holiday memories together. Tucked away and slightly elevated above Ambleside, Brackenber provides a panoramic vista of the village across towards Loughrigg fell and the Fairfield Horseshoe range. A large decked balcony which spans the length of the property provides the perfect vantage point to take in the view.

Extended in recent times, Brackenber is fashionably presented with up to the minute décor and styling. If you can bear to tear yourself away from the views, Ambleside town centre is only a short walk downhill where you’ll find a well-stocked high street brimming with galleries, cafes, shops and bars, and a whole host of attractions to satisfy even the most adventurous among you.
