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.

The Loft is perfect for couples looking to enjoy local walks and the hospitality of Ambleside. Walks up Wansfell, Scandale and Loughrigg are right from the door, and when you get back, the pub is right next door! Facilities in The Loft are excellent and the heating very effective. Ambleside is quite busy, so having the dedicated parking spot just a few metres from the door was very welcomed. Would gladly return to The Loft.

The usual home comforts are all available in The Loft. It’s a very spacious bright apartment and we have been coming here for many years, so that definitely says something about customer satisfaction.

The apartment was comfortable, well-equipped and very clean. It was invaluable having the allocated parking bay outside the house. We could easily walk from the house and access walks, pubs and shops. The bed was comfy, there was plenty of hot water and the kitchen was equipped for cooking all sorts of meals. It was so thoughtful leaving the allowance at the deli, such a nice touch. We had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to return.

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!

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.

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
