Lovely property enjoying a unique setting on the banks of the River Rothay, just 500 yards from the centre of Ambleside and perfect for a gathering of family or friends.

Riverside Lodge is a charming, characterful property enjoying a unique position on the banks of the River Rothay, just 500 yards from the centre of Ambleside and a similar distance to the head of Lake Windermere. The sights and sounds of the river flowing through the large garden provide a relaxing and calming vista. The river is home to a range of wildlife including ducks, hungry heron and groups of kayakers and canoeists. If you are lucky you might spot an otter and kingfisher. This spacious accommodation, recently refurbished, provides plenty of room for the larger family or two or three couples holidaying together. The fabulous snug and games room on the lower ground floor provide a perfect space to chill out. On the ground floor a large lounge equipped with huge Chesterfield sofas is a great place to relax warmed by another wood burning stove. On the first floor, three good size bedrooms, each equipped with bespoke locally made oak units, luxury bed linen and quality handmade Burgess beds provide that special touch. Two bedrooms are equipped with 3’6" beds, whilst the remaining bedroom benefits from an oversized oak framed kingsize bed and luxury en-suite. WiFi access is available throughout the property. Ambleside is the perfect base offering a range of activities including tennis, mini golf, bowling (April – Oct), and a climbing wall, not to mention a wonderful selection of pubs and restaurants. There are plenty of walks available from the doorstep – including across the adjacent Loughrigg Fell that provides wonderful views across Windermere, Grasmere and Rydal Water. It’s no surprise that there is a stone inscription in the basement that identifies that Bonny Prince Charlie stayed at the property in 1745.The property is within a few metres of the River Rothay (which flows through the garden) where fishing is available: Type of fishing: limited fly fishing. Locals tend to use worm or spinner.Type of fish: The river holds brown trout. Very occasional late season salmon and sea trout turn up. Chub and roach are possible but unlikely.Licence: An Environmental Agency rod licence is required. These are available online at www.postoffice.co.uk. The stretch of water is outside of WADAA control hence no additional licence is required. Months: 15th March – 30th September. Closed season is 1st October to 14th March. Additional details about this can be found at www.lakedistrictfishing.net.
