Charming Victorian Terrace Cottage Enjoying Fine Views over Ambleside and her Surrounding Fell Range

High View sits proudly above popular Ambleside and as the name suggests, the cottage enjoys fabulous views over the village towards her surrounding fell and mountain range beyond. This Lakeland slate, period property has undergone a major facelift in recent times. The result of the upgrade is a successful mix of Victorian charm married with up to the minute, 21st-century styling and a truly comfortable retreat. With that all-important private off-road parking space to the front and direct access to the lower slopes of Wansfell to the rear, High View is ideal for those who like to park up and explore the local area and head for the hills!

A few minutes walk downhill brings you to the vibrant village of Ambleside, ever-popular with short and long stay visitors who come to enjoy the superb scenery and facilities throughout the year. Well stocked with several mini-markets, award-winning butchers, and a heavenly bakery, self-catering has never been easier. And, when you feel like a day off from kitchen duties, there are plenty of restaurants on hand offering a range of international cuisine to suit every palate and pocket as well as traditional pubs serving homemade fayre and, of course, the obligatory pint of local ale to accompany your meal.


Direct Access to the Slopes of Wansfell From The Rear Patio Garden

There are six slate steps up the front of the attractive looking High View. Step into the inner hallway and through to a comfortable lounge room, the deep-cushioned sofas perfect for cosying into while enjoying a film or chit-chatting with your family. The bay window gives way to superb views. The modern kitchen dining room is really well-equipped and very spacious, ideal for enjoying leisurely meals together at the start or end of your day. A useful utility on the lower ground floor has a washer/ dryer and a great deal of space for all your outdoor clobber. On the first floor is a pretty king-size bedroom enjoying beautiful views over the village and fells and two smart bathrooms, one a luxurious bathroom with shower over the bath, basin and WC and a neighbouring shower room with large cubicle, basin and WC. Another flight of stairs leads you to the top floor of the cottage and two further bedrooms, a light bright twin to the rear, and a pretty double with arguably THE best view in Ambleside!

Outside, there’s off-road, private parking for one car. To the rear is a raised terraced patio with bistro table and chairs. Direct access can be had from here onto the footpath to Wansfell.

Please note: there is no boundary between the private rear gardens which are on a sloping site.

  • Morgan says:

    Great location in Ambleside with excellent access to shops, restaurants, and lovely hikes to fells and waterfalls from your door. Thoughtfully appointed kitchen with quality appliances and cookware. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, strong Wi-Fi, and lovely views. Great spot to visit with a dog as well. Would definitely stay here again.
