Location Superbly located approximately a mile from Ambleside village centre where an excellent range of local facilities and services await, The Pavilion can be found by taking the A593 out of Ambleside towards Skelwith Bridge and Coniston, passing through Clappersgate. Just after passing Ashley Green and The Beeches on your right and with water meadows on your left, The Pavilion can be found on the left hand side of the road where a shared private drive leads to the property, turning from the road just in front the newly built timber lodge.

Description The trick, if it is indeed a trick, in creating the perfect holiday home, whether that be for letting or simply for enjoyment as a private retreat, is to somehow satisfy the conflicting desires of being both conveniently placed and yet peacefully situated whilst also combining traditional charm and character with more than a little bit of 21st century luxury. You could argue that such a thing cannot simply be "created" at all, so it is rare indeed to be able to tick all of those boxes, and yet The Pavilion does just that.

Ambleside, with all of its traditional charms, Inns, restaurants, shops and indeed cinemas is just down the road, and yet here you enjoy the most subline view over the River Brathay and its associated pools and meadows whilst the whole of The Lake District National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site no less, is all around you.

From the instant you pull onto the driveway you will be able to picture yourself on a warm summers evening sipping a long cool drink relaxing on the slate covered veranda, gazing out over the water to the meadows beyond. Step into the bright open plan living space and you will immediately realise that you may have never fully appreciated the benefits of a room with windows on all four elevations before. There is plenty of light and of course space in which to relax, dine and prepare meals in this welcoming room, which is supplemented a combined utility room and WC. On the first floor are two lovely double bedrooms, each with luxurious en-suite bathrooms and wonderfully tall windows extending right into the gable apexes. If you were impressed by the exposed timber on view downstairs then the wonderful wooden pegged roof trusses displayed here will undoubtedly win your heart.

The gardens are easily managed and offer not only ample car parking provision but also the potential to extend the accommodation should you so wish (subject to any necessary consents being obtained of course).

The views are a delight. Gazing out over the river to the meadows and fells beyond, watching the birds gracefully flitting over the water, the deer coming down for a drink, maybe even an otter or two – can you think of a better place in which to relax and unwind?

This is no trick, this is the genuine article. Come and see for yourself.
