About the property

House in Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England

Blue Hill House is located in Fisherbeck, just a short walk into the centre of Ambleside, yet located very well for numerous walks up onto the fells. Wansfell stands just above it. The property has 4 double sized bedrooms, 3 bathrooms plus a cloakroom. There is a superb living area, comprising kitchen/diner with seating for 8. A spacious lounge with oak and leather furniture and an elegant conservatory with fine views towards the Coniston mountains. Each bedroom has a good degree of privacy and is suitable for 4 couples, extended families or two families. There is a modern contemporary theme throughout the property with high quality furnishings and fittings in every room. Outside there is a comfortable seating area with BBQ and patio furniture. There is an unfenced small beck running through the bottom of the garden, but this is away from the seating area.

Excellent location, excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The property is a in a great location with just a short walk to the centre of Ambleside. Inside the property was roomy and the internal sun lounge was a great place to relax and chat. In short I am pleased to say that it did not just meet expectations it exceeded them.

Great house in Ambleside

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house. Very comfortable and well equipped kitchen. The first floor conservatory has fabulous views. Two ground floor bedrooms are nice and roomy.

Short walk into Ambleside town centre, downhill on way down, up hill on way back, but plenty of choice of restaurants and bars.

Will come back.
