Ideal Quality Retreat for a Larger Gathering of Friends and Family
The rather splendid Oakroyd is a well-placed, high-quality retreat set in a quiet backwater of Ambleside, the ideal venue for an annual gathering of family and friends seeking a central base, somewhere to spend special time together and create unforgettable holiday memories. A traditional Lakeland stone and slate house, Oakroyd offers a winning combination of space and comfort and ticks all the boxes in terms of your holiday home wish list. Light, bright and tastefully decorated, the owners have taken great care to ensure the excellent facilities are both practical and stylish and set out over three main floors, the views of the surrounding fells get better the more stairs you climb!
Ambleside is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Lake District. Surrounded by magnificent scenery, wonderful walking and cycling opportunities, the village is an obvious choice for the first time or returning outdoorsy visitor. Tick off some of the 214 famous Wainwright’s from the doorstep here at Oakroyd or tackle one of England’s most challenging cycle routes, ‘The Struggle’, 400 metres above Ambleside and the highest road in the Lake District. For a more sedate pace, take a leisurely stroll through Rothay Park, over the stepping stones and along to Rydal Water and Caves, a lovely, scenic route with plenty of picnic and photograph opportunities along the way.
