The property

Another of our popular properties at The Falls, Old Mill Cottage apartment was once part of the former bobbin mill which took its power from the waterfalls and produced wood-turned spindles and shuttles in the last century. The cottage is stone-built and there are good views from the sitting room balcony to Loughrigg Fell.

Good walks and rambles abound in the area for all ages and abilities, and you can easily stroll into Ambleside village for day to day shopping and eating out. Accommodation: Built on two floors the property has a ground floor front door leading into the hallway where you can hang your walking gear.

Large fitted contemporary dining kitchen - ideal for family meals.

One good twin-bedded room on this level with built-in cupboards.

Ground floor wc with hand basin. Stairs to the first floor where there is a comfortable sitting room (TV with basic Sky package, DVD, video, radio) with French windows leading onto a wide balcony which has a garden table and chairs and views down the valley - you will enjoy eating out here in warmer weather.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
