Willowbank is located above the picturesque village of Ambleside and is ideally placed on a quiet country lane. Our semi rural location benefits from spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside and mountains and the lane access is used only by the 6 neighboring properties. We boast an abundance of private parking, spacious suites with private terraces and complimentary leisure facilities at a local spa venue. We offer a continental style breakfast for you to enjoy at your leisure along with daily fresh eggs from our own free ranging hens. With walks directly from the door yet only a 10 minute walk to the centre of the village we believe that you won't be disappointed! Please be aware that Willowbank is located on a hill and therefore may not be suitable for some people with mobility issues.

Wow what a place nestled peacefully in the quaint hillsides of Ambleside. Such a warm welcome from the owners on arrival who showed us our accommodation, all of it’s features and also the quick walking route into town. So we stayed in Kirkstone, a home from home. Spotlessly clean
