Property Details

Location Millans Park can be approached by road from the south via Rothay Road which leads onto Compston Road. Following the one way system, and turn left immediately before Zeffirelli’s Cinema and then second left onto Millans Park. Again follow the one way system around Millans Park and this lovely home is found on the left hand side shortly before rejoining the two way section of the road. Millans Park is a quiet residential area away from the main hustle and bustle of Ambleside which remains literally only a few yards away.

The property can also be reached on foot from our office by simply turning right next to the Climbers Shop then bearing right again onto Millans Park where the property is found a short walk around as the road bears left.

Description If you have ever toyed with the idea of escaping the rat race, being your own boss and living in arguably the most beautiful place in the country, then Brantholme might just be your dream ticket.

Superbly located in peaceful surroundings with wonderful panoramic views looking west to Loughrigg around to the dramatic sweep of the Fairfield Horseshoe, this spacious 4 storey semi-detached bed and breakfast is nevertheless just yards from the beating heart of Ambleside. This popular small market town is the hub of the Lake District National Park, as a quick glance of a map of the region reveals – the beautiful lakes which give the region its name appear to radiate out from Ambleside, like the spokes on a wheel.

The National Park is now a Unesco World Heritage Site, which is certain to attract even more tourists each year (a further 3 million annually, it has been estimated) to enjoy all which is on offer, and with the likelihood of more Britons holidaying in the UK in the coming years there has possibly never been a better to enter the hospitality industry.

Brantholme is so much more than just a business venture however, it is a wonderful home which has been extensively modernised and re-designed over the past five years or so to create a welcoming atmosphere for guests and owners alike.

The letting space includes seven double bedrooms, all with modern en-suite facilities superbly equipped with full baths and separate shower cubicles. One even includes a sitting room suite. The spacious bay fronted dining room enjoys a lovely view at the rear and is large enough to accommodate evening dining in comfort if desired, although the options in the town mean that this is by no means a necessity for those for whom achieving the correct life/work balance is paramount. There is a dedicated kitchen and a spacious reception area. The self contained lower floor apartment would make excellent owners accommodation if desired and currently includes three bedrooms, two sitting rooms, a second kitchen and a bathroom. There is plenty of off road car parking provision as well as a residents parking scheme on Millans Park.

Could this be the moment to alter the course of the rest of your life for the better? Why not make a start by coming to view?
