This contemporary first-floor apartment is the perfect base for a break in the Lake District. The apartment is in the heart of the national park, close to the town centre of popular Ambleside. You can set off on walks straight from the doorstep of this home, which used to be the old sorting office. The apartment is warm and welcoming, with a high vaulted ceiling in the open-plan living and dining space – it feels remarkably roomy.

About The Lake District

Poets and novelists have often escaped to the Lake District for a spot of inspiration. Famously, Wordsworth pondered about daffodils and clouds during his time here. The undulating hills are tracked with drystone walls while sheep graze, and farmsteads enjoy untouched beauty for miles around. England’s biggest lake, Windermere, cuts through a valley, sleek as glass and hosts a litany of cosy-pub-filled towns and water sports venues along its shores....
