Herdwick Heft - Ambleside, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 2
Herdwick Heft sleeps two guests and is a cosy, romantic Lakeland cottage apartment, dating back to the 1800's that is ideally placed just a minute’s stroll from the very heart of Ambleside in the Lake District National Park. Beautifully furnished with immense style throughout, the apartment offers everything needed for couples to enjoy exploring the Lake District with a welcoming retreat to return home to at the end of the day.
This is an ideal location for those who prefer not to use the car, and it is also a great touring base. On foot from the cottage, you can enjoy a variety of walks to the lakes, fells, and rivers nearby or take a short drive further into the mountains for higher more challenging walks and vistas. Ambleside has an excellent range of amenities including Zeffirellis, a five-screen cinema with chic dining and jazz club, fantastic pubs, great shops to browse, and a good choice of restaurants.
Should you wish to fish, cycle, climb, or hike, the surrounding area offers plenty of opportunities and is a spectacular outdoor playground. History lovers will be in their element as the area has plenty of historical and literary links including Wordsworth, Ruskin, and Beatrix Potter. For lovers of fine ales, there are no less than thirty breweries and micro breweries dotted throughout Cumbria to whet your palette, including nearby Hawkshead Brewery based in Staveley Mill Yard offering great food and brewery tours.
If it’s fine dining you enjoy, how about a Michelin style experience at L’Enclume in Cartmel, just south of the lower reaches of lake Windermere or Holbeck Ghyll between Windermere and Ambleside. The historic houses of Lowther, Holker, Brantwood, and Rydal Mount make for exquisite days out and are only a short distance from Herdwick Heft or why not take in a play or performances at The Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness, The Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, or The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal.
The choices are endless, and with so much stunning scenery on the doorstep and so many attractions, you can do as much or as little as your heart desires.
