  • Mrs Nicholson

    “Quaysiders is in the perfect location, parking is always a challenge in the lakes during high season but at quaysiders you can park your car and either walk or use the boats to get around.”

    Very peaceful and relaxing.

The property

These 2 bedroom apartments are located at Waterhead in the popular village of Ambleside.

With onsite leisure facilities including a pool, whirlpool and sauna, shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep these modern apartments are sure to appeal to families and groups looking to explore Ambleside and the villages around Lake Windermere. As the name suggests these luxurious apartments are located on the shores of Lake Windermere at Waterhead.

Ambleside is a true Lake District village with facilities and amenities for all, there is a large selection of shops ranging from walking and climbing to antiques and art galleries.

Numerous restaurants, tea rooms and bars provide a welcoming ambience in which to relax and enjoy the company of friends and family or get to know the locals.

Some of the best walks can be enjoyed in and around Ambleside, Stockghyll Falls and Wansfell can be walked straight from the door or jump in the car or an open top bus and head towards Grasmere or Langdale where you will find some of the best walks and dramatic scenery the Lakes have to offer. Waterhead could be described as a village within a village with its own choice of shops, bars and restaurants, or a 10 minute walk will bring you to the centre of Ambleside with a wider choice.

Exploring Lake Windermere is a must, jump aboard the Lake Cruisers, just a few minutes walk from your apartment and explore the largest lake in England, hop on and off at each stop and enjoy the changing scenery and atmosphere of each village.

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.
