Tower House is so named, as the cottage is the front part of the Grade II listed church with the church tower. Located in part of the conservation area known as Chapel Hill and How Head, there has been a church on the site since 1550, but the current structure dates from 1812 when it took on a more Gothic style. Surrounded by the village’s oldest houses, Tower House benefits from being in a quiet location surrounded by shared gardens, while only a short walk away from the many shops and restaurants Ambleside has to offer.

The cottage is comfortably furnished, carefully mixing modern luxuries while retaining original features, from the solid studded door to the arched church windows. Set over three floors, the property is spacious and quirky. The twin room on the top floor will capture children’s imagination as they look out of their bedroom window over the castellated roof to the fells.

Ambleside sits on the northerly end of England’s longest lake, Windermere, so why not enjoy a cruise, or if you are feeling a bit more energetic, why not hire a row boat. Just down the road is the Armitt Museum and Library, which houses a large number of exquisite botanical watercolours donated by the artist herself, Beatrix Potter. Across the road from here is the Bridge House, a tiny two-room, two-storey house dating from the 17th century, and once home to eight people! Beach 20 miles. Shop 250 yards, pub and restaurant 150 yards.

    Five ladies very much enjoyed Tower House weekend break. Location was excellent as far as walking distance to pub shops and restaurants in Ambleside.The Golden Rule being our local and very hospitable pub. The only thing to consider is that Tower House is right at the top of a short but very steep bank called The Struggle. Parking was very precarious as you had to manoeuvre around parked cars, up a tight bend and through the church gates. The actual parking place is over rough ground with grave stones and a hidden sharp kerb which really should be removed to make access easier and safer. Apart from that the residence was comfortable, clean and quirky. Loved the wooden door and windows and the compact modern kitchen. The crockery and drinking glasses need a bit of an overhaul as we found we had chipped tumblers and plates and not enough wine glasses. There was plenty of cleaning products and new dish cloth and tea towels. To get to the bedrooms you had to climb quite steep stairs which turned up the tower. Two steps to single room then two steps down to double room. Double room had loads of cupboards and a dressing table and mirrors. Bed very comfortable. The top floor room access by another flight of stairs with sloping roof. Spacious enough however had just a small tallboy for hanging clothes. Single beds were comfortable for adults. Both bathrooms were modern and immaculate. Had a spot of trouble with getting the water hot in shower, but the water pressure was fabulous. All in all, as long as you can manage stairs and steep banks you'll love it here.
