Luxurious romantic hideaway

If you’re seeking a luxurious romantic hideaway for two, then look no further than The Loft, Ambleside. This contemporary cottage-style apartment offers a clever marriage of traditional Lakeland and modern-day, loft-style living.

A stone’s throw from the village, the picture windows are the perfect viewing point, the local fell range providing a beautiful backdrop to Ambleside, whatever time of year you choose to visit.

Alive with interesting galleries, specialist outdoor retailers, cafes and bars, the village boasts several award-winning restaurants for that special celebration dinner and if you’re wanting to rustle up a romantic meal from the comfort of your cottage, there’s an award-winning butchers, bakers and wine merchant right on your doorstep


Stunning views of the village and fells beyond

A wealth of original beams and trusses adorn the main open-plan living space where you’ll find a warming woodburning stove set against an eye-catching stone wall. Comfortable soft furnishings are matched by pretty, coordinating fabrics, the windows giving way to stunning views of the village and fells beyond. There’s a large, well-fitted kitchen wrapped in solid oak tops to complement the adjacent dining ‘space with a view’ and a luxurious, well-planned king-size bedroom with solid oak furnishings to include a sumptuous bed dressed in quality linens to ensure a good night’s rest. The very smart slate bathroom has a powerful shower over a deep bath, just the spot for a long soak at the end of another wonderful day on the fells.

The Loft is blessed with a private parking space allowing you to simply park up and enjoy all the delights of Ambleside on foot. A small patio, with bistro set, is perfect for a pre-dinner drink or morning cuppa.

Respond to The Loft

  • Judy says:

    The Loft is one of the nicest places we’ve stayed in all the years we’ve been coming to The Lakes. The location is convenient and the views across to Loughrigg are beautiful. The modern apartment is well equipped and clean. Have booked again for 2023!

  • Alex says:

    Lovely stay, perfect location, spotless and cosy.

  • Kirsty Hardwick says:

    Beautiful apartment in perfect location, great views and everything you could need. A real home from home.

  • Sue says:

    The Loft is a fantastic apartment. Light, bright and airy. Superbly equipped with everything top quality. The owners have given much thought to making the stay very special. A great location and another bonus is the on site parking. Rather than a welcome hamper it’s a brilliant idea to have a credit at Rattle Ghyll deli which caters for all sorts of dietary needs. A big thank you to the owners for a fab stay and also to Lakeland Retreats for their friendly but efficient approach. I have already booked The Loft for next year.

  • Chris says:

    Amazing loft apartment. Great location, equipped with everything you could possibly need. Have stayed in several gorgeous properties in Ambleside but this was possibly the best so far
