Modern Retreat Set In A Peaceful Location High Above Ambleside

Coppertrees, enjoys an enviable, elevated position above the centre of Ambleside in an area known as High Gale. Originally built as an annexe and linked detached to the cottage next door, Coppertrees was deliberately built as an upside-down house to ensure the best advantage is had of the views from the upstairs living space. The accommodation is very comfortable throughout and has a quiet workstation for those that need to check their emails whilst on holiday. The attractive lounge come dining room is the perfect space to gather with your family and really lends itself to enjoying leisurely mornings and late afternoons taking in more of that view and, when our weather will allow, the ability to hop out onto the terrace and enjoy lunch al fresco.

There are plenty of sites and attractions to enjoy whilst you’re here in Ambleside. Of course, the area is renowned for its wide variety of walking and cycle routes suitable for adventurers of all ages and abilities and the lakeshore, just a 10-minute walk downhill, is popular with open water swimmers, paddleboarders and canoeists. If you’re looking for a quieter pace, take a cruise on the newest addition to Windermere Lake Cruises fleet, MV Swift and enjoy the stunning scenery that surrounds England’s largest lake. Pop into one of many charming tea rooms and contemporary coffee bars for a cuppa and a cake before heading home up the hill to the peace and quiet comfort of Coppertrees.

  • Nick says:

    Lovely property and very well situated. For our family of four (children aged 9 and 7) it worked perfectly for access to Ambleside and the local walks that were appropriate for the kids. Good also to have the maps and games available for use.

  • Lauren says:

    Great location only a few minute walk to the town centre. Lots of wonderful walks with beautiful views near by or a short distance drive. Lots of restaurants and bars for the evening. Accommodation was gorgeous, had everything we needed and more, even the little things of some milk, for a cuppa upon arrival. There are lovely views of the mountains from The kitchen and lounge. Lots of space which was perfect. Will definitely come again! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • Paul says:

    Coppertrees is a charming property, nicely laid out and homely. The views are so picturesque it’s like a painting whichever way you look and the location makes the whole of the lakes within easy reach. Michelle provides everything needed to make the stay wonderful, even down to a parking disk to use in Ambleside. We strongly recommend staying – you won’t be disappointed.

  • Lorna says:

    Coppertrees is a wonderful property and excellent for exploring The Lake District. The house is cozy, spotlessly clean, is really well kitted out and had great views. We loved it there.

  • James says:

    A lovely cottage in a good location above Ambleside, easy to walk into town (a bit more difficult heading back with the incline). Coppertrees had everything we needed for the week, it was clean, comfortable and well presented. We used it as a great base to explore the local area, given how much there is to do from Ambleside we only moved the car once.

  • John says:

    A lovely, comfortable apartment with super views and a lovely terrace for sitting out and enjoying the birdsong. Beds are comfy, showers are hot and there are plenty of crockery, pots and pans. we would recommend wholeheartedly. A car is needed, realistically, unless you are super fit!

  • Sue says:

    A wonderfully comfortable and quiet place to explore the Southern Lakes. I would certainly recommend it.

  • Sadif says:

    We had a wonderful stay in Ambleside. The location was central and just a few minutes walk away from the centre and an ideal starting point for lots of lovely walks. The house itself was spotless and had a dedicated parking space. There was great views of the surrounding hills and the neighbours were lovely. When we go back to the Lakes we will be looking to stay here again if possible.
