Ghyll End is quietly tucked away above the village, close to the famous 70ft waterfall Stock Ghyll Force which cascades down into Ambleside through a series of spectacular displays passing under the famous Bridge House and into the River Rothay. The delightful sound of the falls is never far away whilst enjoying the garden and grounds at Ghyll End.

The cottage is a leisurely stroll from the centre of town where you’ll find an assortment of supermarkets, butchers and bakers intermingled with tea rooms, bars and eateries. The glorious fells that sit proudly above the village and surround England’s largest Lake are, of course, the main attraction for many but, when the weather turns sour, why not try out the indoor Climbing Wall, take in a film at one of two cinemas, or simply get your waterproofs on and enjoy the Lakes for what they are, simply stunning!

  • Jill says:

    Comfortable, cosy house with plenty of space to relax and unwind after a day of outdoor adventure. The location is great – lots of things to do straight from the door step.

  • Tracey says:

    Perfect location for a visit to the area. The house was spotless and great thought had been given on being “Covid safe”. We had a very comfortable week and wouldn’t hesitate to book again if we were coming to Ambleside. Thank you.

  • Guy says:

    A really nice home away from home. It had everything we need, was spacious and comfortable. A short walk (less than five minutes) to the waterfalls nature walk, and a short walk to the restaurants and cafes of Ambleside (less than 10 minutes). It was so nice we didn’t want to go home!

  • Shaun says:

    We had a lovely stay at this house. On arrival the house was perfectly clean, beds were made up and everything we could possibly require was provided. Beds were confortable. Great Internet connection. Town is 5 minutes walk down the hill and interesting walks can be accessed without taking the car. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

  • Peter says:

    Well located, next to the waterfall..you could hear the waterfall from the apartment. The apartment is well maintained, and immaculate. Highly recommended.
