A STONE’S THROW FROM AMBLESIDE
The village centre is a stone’s throw away, brimming with interesting galleries, outdoor shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to tempt you throughout the day and into the evening. Wonderful walking and cycling can be enjoyed from the doorstep and the shores of Windermere and a host of water based activities are a gentle, 15 minute stroll away.
How Bank is a detached property that is delightfully spacious and provides superb facilities for a self catering break, whatever time of year you choose to visit.
The ground floor
The ground floor layout offers space and flexibility for a family gathering ensuring everyone can enjoy a good degree of privacy during their stay, the snug come games room sure to be well used by the younger members in your party.
With beautifully manicured gardens filled with mature trees and shrubs and awash with colour throughout the year – do help yourself to the apples as they fall from the trees! A cleverly designed metal walkway links the front of the house to the rear allowing you to follow the sun around, sit in the perfectly positioned seating areas and while away a couple of hours with your newest novel whilst listening to the sound of the water cascading down Stock Ghyll.
Enter How Bank through the garden from the private parking at the back of the house that is sufficient for up to 3 cars and into a welcoming hallway with large cloakroom, plenty of hanging space for coats and a place for your shoes and boots. The spacious and very comfortable lounge provides deep cushioned seating arranged around the warming gas fireplace, the room having full height windows allowing for plenty of light and French doors leading directly to the garden.
The kitchen dining room has hand-built oak kitchen units, a granite worktop and large oak dining table and chairs. It is a super space for all the family to gather and share a hand in preparing a special dinner. Extremely well equipped, the amateur chef among you will delight in the thoughtfully provided gadgets and stylish accessories including a selection from Joseph Joseph.
The front hallway leads to the cosy snug with two further sofas, PS4 and Nintendo WIIU with a selection of video and board games and DVDs.
