Well Appointed Holiday Rental, Ambleside

Built on the fell-side over 3 levels, Spedding Fold offers superb views across Langdale towards Lingmoor Fell. To coin a famous phrase, you can see the pub from here! (Only a five minute walk through Walthwaite meadow will get you there). The quiet location is within 15 minutes drive of Ambleside & Grasmere, with abundant walks from the door meaning the car can take a break as well. Ample parking in front of the house too.

Spedding Folds owners Geoff and Louise have set up the house to serve all the needs of a large family group. With plenty of space to spread out between the lounge and conservatory with pool/snooker table.(Grandparents take note, make one the play room and one the adults room). Now with Wifi so you can easily keep in touch with friends, or work if you have to!

Catering for 10 can be quite a challenge but with the kitchen fitted with 2 ovens and 2 hobs space for all the food wont be a problem. The dining room with table seating 10, joins both the kitchen and the garden. The fell side garden and patio area are great for kids to run off steam or for eating outside on warm summer evenings.

The bedrooms are spacious and light, with all rooms to the front of the house providing great views of the valley and the rear rooms look out at the garden and fell-side. The top floor family room has an ensuite shower room, the master bedroom on the first floor has a shower room, with large walk in shower, sink and w.c. The first floor also benefits from a newly fitted separate w.c.

On the ground floor the property has a double garage, which is accessed from the lower hallway and down some steps or from the outside using the up and over garage doors, this houses a full size table tennis table great for entertaining the children, and with plenty of room for storing bikes, canoes etc. It is not used to park cars. There is room on the driveway for a maximum of 4 cars.

What's included?

We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.

Fire Pack / Logs available to purchase form the agency office.

LocationAmbleside

Known as one the best towns to use as a base for exploring the Lake District, Ambleside is located on the edge of Windermere, England’s largest natural lake making this region a favourite with water sports enthusiasts and walkers. As a gateway to Scotland, this area has several interesting Roman fortresses to visit, such as Galava, Ravenglass and Hard Knott Fort.

The Lake Windermere ferry is a convenient service for crossing the shores and exploring the area, with cruises and boat hire available. A popular local attraction is Hill Top, the farmhouse owned by Beatrix Potter which is worth a visit for fans of the author. An iconic building of Ambleside is the tiny Bridge House over Stock Breck, and a short walk from the town is Stock Ghyll Force where there is a safe railed off point to view the impressive 70 foot waterfall.

Wray Castle is a great family day out, with dressing up for children and lots of outdoor space with play equipment. Grizedale Forest has numerous walking and cycling trails with a Go Ape tree top obstacle course on site. The Armitt Museum houses a gallery and collection of museum exhibitions. Open to the public, Dove Cottage was the family home of William Wordsworth and guided tours are available of the small museum and gardens. Also in the area is Rydal Mount House with portraits and memorabilia of the poets work.

Cumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
