Beautiful, detached Lakeland residence on the slopes of Loughrigg Fell with direct Wordsworth connections.

Loughrigg Holme sits underneath the much loved fell of the same name and was once the home of Wordsworth’s daughter, Dora and her husband Edward Quillinan, Rich in literary history connections, visitors to Loughrigg Holme have included Charlotte Bronte, the poet Matthew Arnold and Harriet Martineau. This ‘chocolate box property,originally a farmhouse, built in 17th century and extended in the early 19th century is a beautiful example of a traditional Lakeland residence, her 2 1/2 acres of gardens and fellside including croquet lawn blending effortlessly into the slopes of Loughrigg and displaying a wealth of ancient shrubs and flora, cleverly married with more formal patio, lawn areas and natural water fall.  A short stroll directly under Loughrigg Fell will bring you to beautiful Rydal Water, one of Lakeland’s smallest lakes at only ¾ mile long and ¼ mile wide and a favourite of Wordsworth and many other of the romantic poets and still, to this day, magical, peaceful and most inspiring. Ambleside can also be reached on foot within 20 minutes along a country lane, this bustling village offering numerous attractions and activities for all ages with a wide choice of bars, shops and restaurants. Loughrigg Holme is obviously steeped in Lakeland history and exhibits many historic features with dated spice cupboard, flagged floors, exposed beams and original oak stairs and shutters. The house has been beautifully dressed, the owners respecting the obvious age and fascinating literary connections to create a most comfortable and elegant home, a clever mix of 17th and 21st century, the perfect venue for a family gathering and a place where special memories will be created and treasured.

    We rented the house for a family celebration in March. We looked forward to spending time in front of the fires in a lovely setting- we took logs with us. When we tried to light the fires on arrival - the rooms filled with smoke and the alarm went off. When we reported the problem - 2 small blow heaters were delivered!! No further action - and no fires for the 5 days we stayed there. The house is in a lovely setting and the kitchen/diner are particularly impressive - we lit the Aga and that made things a little more cosy. It was such a pity that the sitting rooms felt so cold and impersonal. We felt that the letting company were less than helpful - at least they should try to sound interested! They did send someone to fix the radiators in the bathrooms - but that was it. Good job the weather was kind ....sitting on the bench in the garden was very pleasurable.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Loughrigg Holme, near Ambleside. It was most unfortunate that the fires were smoking into the room during your stay as this had not been reported by the previous guests and although the heating was working, we suggested 2 small electric heaters in case the weather turned chilly in the evenings. These were left for you at the house as you were out for the day and during this visit the bathroom radiators were bled and left working satisfactorily. The chimneys have now been swept, the sweep stating that all was well and there was nothing to report. We will of course monitor comments from future guests on this matter. Being just outside the Ambleside, phone signal does tend to be a little intermittent. We did try to contact you on a number of occasions to ensure all was well but were unable to leave a message. We are pleased that the weather was kind during your stay and you managed to enjoy the lovely surroundings at Loughrigg Holme. We do hope we can be of service to you again in the future.
