    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Our family fell in love with the Lake District on our very first visit. Back then, one of our two children was in a child carrier, while the other was whingeing about having to go for yet another walk.

    Now seventeen years on, they're both too big to be carried and still whine whenever it is suggested that we go for a walk on the fells. For a long time we have wanted our own property in the Lake District. Today we are the proud owners of Park Gates Lodge in Ambleside.

    We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    The Victorian cottage was once the home of the gate-keeper of Rydal Hall. Today it belongs to us, and although we shut the gates to keep the sheep out they don't stop the deer, who regularly help themselves to the garden. Scandale beck runs opposite the front of the house, whi...

    How to get there
    The property is just half a mile from the centre of Ambleside along the A591 Rydal Road, less than 10 minutes walk from the village.
    On leaving Ambleside look for the stone pillared ornate wrought iron gates set back from the road - just on the right after Scandale bridge, the cottage is situated just behind these gates on the private lane to Rydal Hall.
    More detailed directions from Junction 36 of the M6 are provided at the time of booking.

Both house and garden are attractive and maintained to a high standard. It makes an ideal base for walking in the central areas of Lakeland; the Fairfield Horseshoe commences from the front... more

The sun was shining when we arrived at Park Gates Lodge which is a truly tranquil spot. The modern kitchen with two large windows is bright, light, airy, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. The lounge is very comfortable with an extensive supply of books, videos, childrens' games and DVDs. The newly fitted bathroom is excellent and the two bedrooms... more
