With onsite leisure facilities including a pool, whirlpool and sauna and shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep these modern apartments are sure to appeal to families or groups looking to explore Ambleside and the villages around Lake Windermere with access to the Lake cruises being only a minutes walk.
As the name suggests these luxurious apartments are located on the shores of Lake Windermere at Waterhead. Ambleside is a true Lake District village with facilities and amenities for all, there is a large selection of shops ranging from walking and climbing to antiques and art galleries. Numerous restaurants, tea rooms and bars provide a welcoming ambience in which to relax and enjoy the company of friends and family or get to know the locals. Some of the best walks can be enjoyed in and around Ambleside, Stockghyll Falls and Wansfell can be walked straight from the door or jump in the car or an open top bus and head towards Grasmere or Langdale where you will find some of the best walks and dramatic scenery the Lakes have to offer.
Waterhead could be described as a village within a village with its own choice of shops, bars and restaurants, or a 10 minute walk will bring you to the centre of Ambleside with a wider choice. Exploring Lake Windermere is a must, jump aboard the Lake Cruisers, just a few minutes walk from your apartment and explore the largest lake in England, hop on and off at each stop and enjoy the changing scenery and atmosphere of each village. Hayes Garden Centre is a few minutes walk and shoppers will love the wide variety of goods on sale ranging from gifts, kitchen equipment, furnishings for the house, pet supplies and of course one of the largest choices of garden plants and accessories in the area.

The location for these apartments could not be better, however they do not have balconies as described, it is a public walkway! The pool is tiny but nice, the apartments are very small and cramped and when we used the toaster the electricity went off. We weren't given a warm welcome, just greeted with a lot of panic because another guest had apparently not parked in their allocated space and this seemed to be a bit of an obsession with the owners. There are 18 parking spaces and 18 apartments but for some reason the owners are obsessed with you parking in the allocated bay and get very upset if you dont!
We asked for a couple of things in the office and the staff were incredibly rude and acted offended that we actually needed anything at all. We paid over £650 for this holiday and were treated like kids in a hostel, with the owner even standing shouting for us to collect our towels and then counting them to make sure they were all there!
The apartment was clean and the location made up for a lot of the other faults. This place could be 100% if it was updated slightly and the guests were treated as guests instead of burdens, and if they relaxed that ridiculous car parking rule and actually made people feel welcome!
Thank you for your review of your stay at Waterhead Apartments.
We are pleased you found the apartment clean and enjoyed the location of the property.
We are sorry that you had some issues during your stay and we have passed on your comments to the owner's of the property.
We hope to welcome you back to this property or another Lakes Cottage Holidays property in the near future.

“Great location with good, basic accomodation”

The location is excellent but unfortunately there was no view of the fantastic scenery from the apartment. The apartment had plenty of amenities but the furnishings were fairly basic quality and the beds were brick hard. The Internet and Sky TV were convenient extras.
Minimum stay and check-in day vary by time of the year.
All prices include all taxes, gas, electric and bed linen. Please check property description to see if towels, logs, coal and cots are included free of charge or at a supplement. If a pet friendly property, the charge is £20 per pet per week/part week. Please telephone or email us for short break availability and prices.
