About the property

Apartment in Skelwith Bridge, Nr. Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Peaceful Location

Part of Neaum Crag, a peaceful development of log cabins and exclusive apartments, Badger's Walk nestles in the secluded atmosphere of the Langdale Valley. The ground floor property is a paradise for couples or companions, overlooking a small tarn and surrounded by 18 acres of private woodland. A break at Badgers Walk includes full use of the on-site leisure complex including pool, sauna, jacuzzi and games room (March to November). Perfect for soaking away the aches of the day; especially as the Langdale Valley offers some of the finest walking and hiking in the Lake District. Accommodation in detail: Sheltered entrance porch with entrance hall. Open-plan lounge and dining room overlook the tarn, with access to private, furnished patio. Well-equipped kitchen sits off the living area. Double bedroom has full-length patio doors, also overlooking the tarn. Chic, soothing bathroom with bath and shower over.Location: Langdale Valley is a place of dreams for walkers, and for lovers of peace and quiet. And, despite being an accommodation complex, Neaum Crag is a small, tasteful and private one so the air of seclusion remains.Langdale Valley is scarcely inhabited bar several traditional pubs and the little communities of Chapel Stile and Elterwater. At all times the scenery is dominated by the majestic presence of the Langdale Pikes; you won't need to be reminded that you're in the most renowned walking location in the Lake District. Facilities, shops, restaurants, bars and more are found an easy distance away in Ambleside. Within minutes you're linked up to the main route through the Lakes, bringing the attractions of Coniston, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness and more within manageable driving distance.

About Brian Blackburn

The owner, Brian, has been managing self catering accommodation for over ten years. He is also an accountant based in Blackpool and so has detailed knowledge of what holidaymakers require

Brian Blackburn purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Brian Blackburn chose Windermere & Central Lakes

Badgers Walk is located in area of outstanding beauty but is only 5 minutes from the restaurants and bars of Ambleside. It is located on the Neaum Crag estate which never gets too busy even in peak summer. I am often asked if there is a gym in the Pool Hall, no there isn't but if you want exercise just walk anywhere from the door. It is far more scenic than any gym.

What makes this apartment unique

Badgers Walk provides free access to the onsite leisure club, open 1st March to 15th November annually. I have installed a jacuzzi bath to aid recovery when returning from long walks. There is a pub and restaurant only a five minute walk away
