Christmas in ambleside

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Lingmell over christmas.

The house was heated for out arrival which was lovely as often rental propeties are cold when you first get there.

The house was very well equipped ,very clean and the rooms well set up.

Great location for ambleside and windermere.

there are nice leisure facilities but we didnt use these as we were out walking every day.

easy walks for Loughrigg, rydal water. scansdale from tthe house

Sad to leave .

Thank You Garth !

Lingmell - Ambleside

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two friends stayed at Lingmell for 3 nights and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We booked directly through Garth who was so helpful and made it very easy to complete the process. Everything about Lingmell met our expectations, the bedrooms had very comfortable beds, the on-suite showers and baths were a joy to relax in after a days walking. Although we ate out 2 of the 3 nights the kitchen facilities were more than adequate for any budding chefs. There are lots of very friendly pubs and restaurants nearby (although the walk back up to Lingmell is a bit daunting depending on your drinking habits) all serving a wide selection of food and drink. Overall a very enjoyable stay at a very accessible, comfy property - thanks for the opportunity to stay at your excellent property Garth

Lovely bright house with views of hills and lake

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely bright clean warm cosy house. I particularly liked the far reaching views. The bathrooms are wonderful. There is off street parking and the pool is close by. I enjoyed the walk down the hill to Ambleside where we found an ample variety of good places to eat. The walk up took more effort but we were so well rewarded with the view. No need to get in your car to walk up into the hills up the valley. Walking nearby is spectacular. Highly recommended for either adults or families. The owner could not be more helpful and keeps this well equipped house to the highest standards.

Superb holiday home in Ambleside, excellent view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this holiday house in Ambleside.

The house has a large living room, great bathrooms with roll top baths and even a double garage to keep your car.

The location is excellent for day trips in to the lakes.

The house is situated on the hill with great views over Ambleside.

There is a swimming pool very close to the property.

House was clean and warm for our winter break.

Excellent communication from owner.

garth london purchased this house in 2002

Why garth london chose Ambleside

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.
