Ambleside is a beautiful village in the heart of the Lake District and the perfect choice for a break at any time of the year. The village is home to a variety of restaurants, shops and an array of historic buildings and architecture to keep you busy during your stay. Ambleside really has something for everyone… from the beautiful lake for sailing on, to the high fells for adventurous climbs, with wild waterfalls and riverside rambles to name but a few.
Willowbank stands in its own grounds and shares its location with only 6 other properties. Situated on a quiet country lane and enjoying an enviable position above the village yet is only a stroll to the centre of Ambleside. With breathtaking, panoramic views of the mountains and countryside, surrounded by delightful gardens with quiet outdoor seating areas, you may find that you just don’t want to leave.
Our location is impressive! You only have to step out of the front door and you are on your way to enjoying a fabulous walk, whatever your fitness level or capabilities are, we believe there is a walk for everyone. For those that prefer to drive, our location means that within minutes you can be on to the Kirkstone pass, heading up ‘the struggle’ and are immediately into the Troutbeck valley or Ullswater and beyond. Driving through the atmospheric mountain ranges are a sight behold, whatever the time of year.
Here at Willowbank, we can advise you on any of your holiday needs including what to do, where to go, when to go and sometimes even what not to do!
