Why garth london chose Windermere & Central Lakes

Ambleside is in the heart of the English Lake District so there are many attractions in the local area.My dad worked at Windscale UKAE and used to drive through Ambleside on way up there from Warrington.When he retired he bought Lingmell as he loved the lakes and we decided to keep it in the family.

What makes this house unique

Ambleside is a 1 min. walk away yet this is a quiet private location. Amazing views from the wide balcony. Large detached house with gardens. Waterhead and Lake Windermere are 5 min. level walk away. Heated indoor pool with Jacuzzi adjacent/also tots pool.Having a heated swimming facility virtually next door is so convenient.

Lovely spacious house with great view

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Lingmell for a week at Easter. Weather mixed but had a fantastic holiday. Lingmell is very spacious and well equipped and with great views from the balcony, lounge and master bedroom. Everything you could need for a week self catering - good wifi and Sky TV were a nice bonus too. The house is handily located for the centre of Ambleside, but far enough up the hill to be peaceful. Drive very steep, but we managed to get the car on and off all week without incident. All in all a great place to stay, and we will certainly try to stay here again if we stay in Ambleside again.

Wonderful house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have been regular guests at Lingmell for over 10 years and we come back every year - for a good reason. the house is so comfortable with all the facilities anyone could need (including Sky Sports). the owner takes great pride in continually updating the property so this year we were delighted to find a new walk in en suite shower. 5 minutes from the centre of Ambleside - oh, and the pool is just wonderful.We'll be back next year as always.

Fantastic Stay at Lingmell April 17

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Lingmell as part of the Childrens Easter holidays. The house was perfect for the group of 6 with every convenience we could have wished for in the house. The wifi and sky TV kept the kids happy along with many hours spent in the swimming pool, while the grown ups took in the amazing view from the balcony. The weather for our weeks stay was also amazing which allowed lots of happy hours walking on the fells and pottering about the lovely town of Ambleside with its great pubs and restaurants.

A fantastic week overall for the family and I would recommend Lingmell as a great place to stay

Beautiful property. Owner very helpful

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't pick a better home. Property was exactly as described. Clean, large, well equipped, down stairs bathroom was stunning, garden was lovely and having wifi and sky tv was a real plus. Owner Garth could not have been more helpful. I would certainly recommend this property. We eat out for breakfast lunch and dinner enjoying many of the local pubs and restaurants. The log house does a great steak and lovely cocktails. With only a short walk to town there was no need to take the car. We are already planning our next trip for the summer.

A fabulous property in every way.

The elevated location overlooks the town of Ambleside, with its far reaching magnificent views over the surrounding hills.

This large house is modern and has a homely, welcoming feel as soon as you enter it. It was in an immaculately clean condition. the kitchen is very well equipped and attractive. There is a large sitting/dining room with a beautiful large balcony from which to enjoy the views. A lovely space for outdoor eating and drinking.

The master bedroom is huge with a very comfortable bed and lovely en suite, and shares the balcony.

A useful wc is on this floor with 2 more spacious bedrooms and a very stylish bathroom on the lower ground floor. These bedrooms look out onto the pretty garden.

Although the weather went from sunny to snowy, we really didn't care as we enjoyed spending time in the house. I loved reading my book in the sitting room and looking out over the landscape.

The other major plus with Lingmell is its location. Ambleside is a short walk away, where there is everything you need. Lots of small independent shops, pubs, restaurants etc. You are spoilt for choice with the outdoor clothing shops.

The house is also well placed to access glorious walks without using the car.

We had an excellent Thai meal at Doi Intanon, which is in the historic old market Hall, and is close to Lingmell. The White Lion is also lively and buzzy with very reasonable food.

Our favourite pub was the Golden Rule. A typical cosy lakeland pub with a great fire and good beers.

Although we very much enjoyed eating out, it was also great to make use of the excellent cooking facilities back at the house.

We would go back to Lingmell anytime. It's home from home, only nicer!
