Super stylish, romantic retreat for two

The Old Beams is a super stylish, romantic retreat for two, conveniently located in the popular outdoorsy village of Ambleside. Whether you’re a first or returning visitor to this beautiful part of Lakeland, there’s plenty to explore on foot or on two wheels, the magnificent fells easily reached right from the door offering walking and cycling routes for all abilities.

The shores of Windermere are a gentle, level stroll from The Old Beams where you can hire a rowing boat, hop on a Steamer, hire a paddleboard or simply sit and enjoy the view.

The Old Beams is moments away from a wide selection of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, the famous Golden Rule literally a stone’s throw from the front door.


Traditionally stylish with a clever twist

As the name suggests, a wealth of exposed beams adorn the accommodation and add to its character and charm. The Old Beams is a special place to stay, traditionally stylish with a clever twist of al la mode here and there. From the front, step through the stable door and into an open plan living space you’re greeted by a statement focal point of the warming woodburning stove set against a stone backdrop. The cosy lounge space is dressed with deep-cushioned leather sofas and an accent chair, complemented by a relaxed dining area and a well fitted, country kitchen with all the mod cons you need to cook up a culinary delight for that special night in.

The elegant double bedroom with solid wood furnishings and crisp white linens has a separate dressing room for that added space and convenience whilst the luxurious bathroom, dressed in striking slate is perfect for enjoying a long soak in the tub after a day sightseeing.

Outside, there’s a small terrace for two giving way to distant views over the village towards Loughrigg Fell. A permit is provided for use on the nearby car park.

    Great location, outside table and chairs that capture the sun right until sunset. Simple but effective apartment.
