Right on the waterside and complete with a private jetty, Waterhead House is a bright, warm and welcoming modern home with magnificent lake views!
Step right into this light-filled living space with a glorious pitched roof and picture windows, allowing floods of warm light to flow through the entire living area! Two cosy sofas in front of the large TV are perfect for settling in for a relaxed evening in this incredibly tranquil location! Captivating views from every window will leave you speechless. The wonderful modern kitchen has everything you could need to rustle up a treat, while the formal dining room with immediate garden access is great for all occasions!
There are four spacious bedrooms, three of which are delightfully calm and cosy double bedrooms, while the fourth room is perfect for children with a lovely set of bunk beds. The charming master bedroom enjoys spectacular lake views! There are two fabulous bathrooms between the rooms, including one with a delightful bathtub. In addition, two of the rooms feature their own sink areas.
And finally, step outside into your enchanting private garden and enjoy total serenity! The landscaped gardens are dazzling, with a huge lawn for the children to play on, a barbecue on the terrace for unforgettable alfresco days and a fabulous terrace with lake views that will simply take your breath away!
A gentle stroll north of the river will bring you to the lakeside town of Ambleside where you’ll find tons of charming shops, restaurants and cafes. Hop on a lake cruise at Waterhead Pier for a fresh look at the lake, and head over to the other shoreside villages. For those looking to get out and about on land in this breath-taking countryside, walks of all kinds, including the iconic Fairfield Horseshoe walk which goes past the front door, can be enjoyed literally from the doorstep. As well as mountain bike routes to suit all levels!
Overlooking the sublime Lake Windermere and only minutes from Windermere, Bowness Bay and Ambleside, Waterhead House is located in one of the most desirable parts of the Lake District.
Less than a mile north you will find the thriving town of Ambleside, while travelling south you’ll find Windermere village and the slightly larger town of Bowness-on-Windermere, which offer endless quaint cafes, traditional pubs, fantastic restaurants, outdoors shops and large supermarkets, as well as the flagship store for Lakeland to make the most of, as well as an Information Centre! A lake cruise from just outside your front door will take you down to this end of the lake with ease, and you can enjoy the fabulous views along the way!
Windermere is England's largest lake, at 10.5 miles long and 219 feet at its deepest point! And unsurprisingly is one of the most famous and popular areas in the whole of the Lake District, with unrivalled hiking, cycling and water-sports on offer, not to mention attractions including crazy golf, climbing, hot air ballooning and orienteering!
Something of a mecca for cyclists, walkers and water-sports enthusiasts, the landscapes awaiting you have to be seen to be believed! Leave the car behind and lose yourself in the fresh air! For the true adventurers, unbeatable skiing, climbing and mountain-biking can be found throughout the Park, while more relaxing pursuits including boat hire and golf can be found a stone’s throw away.
Nearby attractions including the Lakes Aquarium, with the UK's largest collection of freshwater fish, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where you can enjoy a 3.5-mile steam locomotive trip into the Leven Valley and the delightful World of Beatrix Potter, where the fabulous animals of Beatrix Potter's tales are brought to life in three dimensions! All make for a great day out for all ages and can easily be combined for those short on time thanks to their proximity.
The Lake District is England's largest National Park, with more than 3100km of rights of way, you can walk, cycle and ride yourself silly through this enchanting valley as you marvel at some of the world’s best scenery! Adventure courses, boat hire, all kinds of water-sports and much more ensure you can take the Lakes at your own pace, be that racing down the mountains on a bike, fell-running up them or gliding through them on a Launch, the possibilities are endless!
Carlisle, Leeds and Newcastle airports are all within a 2-hour drive or thereabouts, and there are train stations dotted throughout the National Park, so accessing the house on public transport is certainly possible. The average journey time from London and the south-east is about five hours, while it’s about one and a half hours from Manchester and two hours from York.
