Property Description

Aptly named, Waterhead Studio is set right on the shore of, and with superb views across Lake Windermere. Apart from the small lake frontage, guests also benefit from a balcony, boat storage area and shared use of a jetty. Guests also have 4 complimentary membership of leisure facilities at a nearby hotel, with pool, gym, sauna and spa (further passes can be purchased). On the southern outskirts of Ambleside, just ¼ mile from Waterhead, where you can take cruises down the lake. The visitor centre at Brockhole, with its 30 acres of award-winning gardens and grounds, is a great place for a trip to this beautiful area. Home to a series of trails, walks, events and activities, it also has an information centre where you can find out all about the local attractions. Close by are Hawkshead and Grasmere. Both villages are inextricably linked to the romantic poet William Wordsworth. Historians and Wordsworth fans alike will find a visit to either Dove Cottage or Rydal Mount an interesting diversion. Wordsworth is not the only literary connection here; both John Ruskin and Beatrix Potter also lived nearby, Ruskin at Brantwood on the shores of Coniston Water, and Beatrix Potter at Hill Top (NT) at Far Sawrey. There are many ways to explore this often frequented area and each visitor chooses his own path, by foot, mountain bike, car, boat or even horse. An ideal holiday base. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. It was nice to be back after 18 years, the property is still fantastic. March 2012.
  2. We have use the Waterhead Studio near Ambleside now on 4 occasions and are more than impressed with the overall accommodation and are looking again to book for next year 2012. It is well presented and with outstanding views and facilities and comfort. It is in easy walking access to Ambleside with bars and cafe’s and restaurants but if your legs are not up to it taxi’s are a phone call away. Also close are Windermere and Bowness. Please keep up the good work. Thank You Adrian & Lisa Robbins. Nov 2011.
  3. Clean & well catered for. The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable, The property location was amazing, wish we had booked for longer. Jan 2011.
  4. The property had a very well equipped, clean kitchen. The view from the large panoramic window overlooking the lake was stunning.Complimentary passes to Low Wood Leisure Centre were well used, thank you. Lovely clean bathrooms. Dec 2010.
  5. The views over lake Windermere. Jan 2011.
  6. The view from the main windows is worth the price alone. Nov 2010.
  7. Really well equipped kitchen which made food preparation for 10 much easier than expected; large communal area with absolutely fantastic lakeside views and well proportioned and comfortable bedrooms. Maybe could do with slightly more comfortable seating but other than that perfect. Oct 2010.
  8. The view across Lake Windermere was the main reason for booking, as was the waterside location & private jetty. Sept 2010.
  9. The property is extremely spacious and very well equipped. Its lakeside location offers fantastic views across Windermere and great opportunities for watching the local wildlife. Aug 2010.
  10. The sitting room is big enough for us ten, very relaxing and the view is fantastic!! The bedrooms are cosy and warm and linen was very clean. Bathrooms were superb too! Aug 2010.
  11. We liked the view across the lake. June 2010.
  12. Fab window to lake, clean, simple and not cluttered . Liked the key lock system of getting and leaving the key. April 2010
  13. This is a great size for families. We had 9 adults and 2 children under 2 years old and had plenty of room to move about. It has a wonderful view and is definitely recommended. March 2010
  14. I and all who holidayed at Waterhead were very disappointed our stay was only one week!! We could have gladly stayed for more; we hope if possible to stay again and my remarks on the phone to my son more than had him interested too, he wanted details of it. Aug 2009.
  15. Very spacious accommodation lovely setting. June 2009.
  16. The property surpassed our expectations...the waterside location and views from the living room & bedroom must be amongst the finest in Ambleside. The living room was spacious enough for our party of 8 and contributed to a very enjoyable weekend. Thank you for a great holiday. Feb 2009.
  17. Location, location, location - what more can you say! Stayed there four days and never used the car. March 2009.
