Why garth london chose Ambleside

Ambleside is in the heart of the English Lake District so there are many attractions in the local area.My dad worked at Windscale UKAE and used to drive through Ambleside on way up there from Warrington.When he retired he bought Lingmell as he loved the lakes and we decided to keep it in the family.

What makes this house unique

Ambleside is a 1 min. walk away yet this is a quiet private location. Amazing views from the wide balcony. Large detached house with gardens. Waterhead and Lake Windermere are 5 min. level walk away. Heated indoor pool with Jacuzzi adjacent/also tots pool.Having a heated swimming facility virtually next door is so convenient.

Fantastic location and property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Ambleside staying in Lingmell. The property is well appointed with fantastic views over the village and surrounding hills. Lake Windemere is a 15 minute walk away where it is easy to pick up the regular boats that leave to travel along the length of the lake. Being centrally located access to all other parts of the Lake District is straight forward. But we did not stray far from Ambleside which has a fantastic arrange of places to eat and drink. Recommendations include eS Bar for Tapas, Lucy's on a plate for evening dinner and The Golden Rule for a traditional pint. Worth a walk is the Waterfalls accessed quite easily at the bottom of the slope into town. The property itself is spacious and comfortable. The recently refurbished bathrooms are great and the wi-fi and Sky TV package perfect for teenagers! Our only challenge was the drive which is very steep but after a couple of tries we mastered the technique!!

Great location and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Lingmell. We were holidaying with my parents and our 2 children (2yrs and 5months old) and the house was perfect for our needs. Great location - 5 minute walk into town (we usually walked the longer way round on the road with the buggy rather than the direct route down a very long flight of steps!). It was brilliant to have use of the leisure pool - our toddler absolutely loved it! Communication with Garth was faultless from booking through to the whole of our stay. The house had a HUGE tv in a comfortable lounge and the bathrooms were very luxurious. Comfortable beds and the kitchen was very well stocked. Thanks for a great stay!

LINGMELL spacious property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Lingmell for the last 14 years, it is like a second home to us now. A spacious, clean and comfortable house with recently updated luxury bathrooms. The Laundry room with washing machine and dryer is always an advantage if you encounter wet/muddy weather. In a fabulous location with stunning views from the balcony. Situated within walking distance of pubs, restaurants, cinema, supermarket, post office etc. So many scenic walks right on the doorstep. Use of the pool at Lakelands is a bonus. The owner is constantly refurbishing and updating the property and is very helpful and approachable if you have any queries.

Lovely Ambleside Property

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay in Lingmell. It is a very welcoming house with outstanding views of Ambleside from the upstairs lounge, bedroom and balcony. It is also ideally situated for all that Ambleside and the surrounding area has to offer. It now benefits from two newly refurbished high quality bathrooms. We really enjoyed use of the adjacent swimming pool. Lingmell's double garage has ample space for two cars, which is really important in Ambleside, where parking is at a premium. All in all an excellent property and I am sure that we will be back before too long!

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

I loved every bit of the house. Amazing, had everything you would need for a relaxing break. The children had the ground floor which meant we could relax in the evening on the balconey, views during the day are amazing and watching the views change due to the weather was lovely too. Plenty of room for everyone 3 kids, 2 adults and a golden retriever! Fabulous location 2 minute walk into the town and brilliant swimming facilities we took the kids everyday, again only a short walk. I can honestly say I will definately be booking again.

Thanks for letting us book your amazing house x
