Clean, spacious accommodation set right on Windermere lake side with stunning views and a private jetty.

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. 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.

Ground floor: Living/dining room with patio doors. Kitchen. 3 bedrooms: 1 double, 2 twin. Bathroom with toilet. Shower room with toilet. First floor: 1 twin bedroom with additional bunk. Bathroom with toilet.

Gas central heating, electricity and bed linen included. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi.Telephone-incoming and emergency calls only. Balcony. Boat storage area and shared jetty. Parking (2 cars). Couples and family bookings only. NB: There is a small piece of lake frontage. There is a low storage area under the house. No smoking.

    We had a lovely time as always (this was our 4th visit) and everything was great. However we're having to rethink our plans for next year because of the price, particularly during or near school holidays. One of my granddaughters is now at school and the youngest will be starting next year so we can't go during term time and it's too expensive during the school holidays. It's a pity because we love it

    For a property of this quality it was disappointing not to have a hair drier. There was an excess of cooking pans but shortage of large baking dishes. There kitchen cupboard doors are starting to come apart as is the bank of the wardrobe in the upstairs bedroom. We had good weather and enjoyed swimming off the jetty. We had

    Great stay for the second time at the Waterhead Studio. Our only critisism would be that the owner needs to spend a little money to give it some tlc. The views from the property are beautiful but from the bedroom upstairs the views are distorted as the seal on the double glazed window is faulty and full of condensation. Also the outside balcony is in need of painting as the paint is coming off in places.

    Ideally situated, spacious, warm and comfortable with spectacular views. A beautiful place to spend a family Christmas. We arrived to find a Christmas tree in the living room - a thoughtful touch. The house was well equipped although some things such as cutlery and glass ware were a bit of a hotch potch. While downstairs was very smart and new, upstairs showed signs of wear. That said, we would certainly return and would not hesitate in recommending this property

    Fifth time here, and there'll be a sixth. It doesn't get much better.

    A lovely place to stay, right on the lake, we enjoyed walking from the balcony straight into the lake. A ten minute walk from Ambleside town centre, although the YHA adjacent to the property offers good food and also within a two minutes walk is the Waterhead Inn, again good food and drink available. The property offers parking for two cars but can accommodate three at a pinch. It offers four bedrooms with two bathrooms and a shower room. All clean and tidy upon arrival. My only reservation is that the property is starting to show signs of wear, not surprising for a holiday home, but it is starting to need some decorating and some TLC in some areas. However, this is a minor issue when taking into account the lovely accommodation as a whole. Would I stay there again? Without hesitation I can say yes.
