About Lesley Stevens
Lesley & Chris are from Holmfirth in Yorkshire. Our three children are all now adults following their own dreams, so we can now manage to spend more time traveling the world! Food and holidays are our passion - a great reason to spend time in Ambleside - so many great restaurants available without needing to drive! The flat is designed as much as a 'home' as a holiday let.
Lesley Stevens purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Lesley Stevens chose Ambleside
We have rented this apartment many times over the past 15 years, from Susan - the previous owner, who is a very special & close friend of ours, and jumped at the chance to buy it when it became available. We too have loved the area all our lives and feel central Ambleside is one of the best parts. We hope to continue sharing this luxury with past and future guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
Undoubtedly, the views... and light flooding in... and sitting on the balcony with a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. We love visiting the cinemas in Ambleside and enjoying the fabulous food on offer within a short walk of the apartment. To be able to go on some lovely walks without the need of going in the car first is fantastic. Hiring a motor boat on Lake Windermere for a few hours and taking a picnic is a lot of fun! There are some great walks including pubs en route. Such as the mortal man. For the more ambitious the Fairfield Horseshoe. Walk or drive over to Skelwith Bridge and walk along the river. Or walk down to the park and then along the river. Stagshaw gardens a few yards down the road is fabulous for its rhodendruns and woodland garden Rydal water is a short walk away and one of the most beautiful views in the lakes Blackwell is one of Britain's finest Arts & Crafts historic houses. Located in the Lake District, south of Bowness, Cumbria with views over Windermere.

Lovely flat with beautiful views of the mountains
This flat is a really lovely place to stay. The flat itself has wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and town below and is very well equipped. Beds and sofas are comfy and it is great to have some outside space on the balcony. The process of booking and accessing the flat was easy. The property is very central which is great - perhaps not a good place to stay if you have any mobility issues but we quite enjoyed the slog back up the hill each time we returned! Thoroughly recommend the property.
Thank you for your review. Following advice we have temporarily stopped letting to any visitors and refunded everyone in full if they have been unable to travel. We will of course open up as soon as possible. Thank you to all our wonderful guests who have stayed so far this year. Keep safe and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Absolutely great place to stay. So close to all that Ambleside has to offer but just that little bit away from the main hustle and bustle (literally 100-150 metres and need to go down, and obviously later back up, a rather steep hill mind you but nothing a couple of mid-fifty-ites couldn’t handle - there is also a more sedate longer route round - maybe 2 or 3 times as long but either way you would be in/out of town within 10 mins ) apartment is beautiful, view is amazing, so well kept, absolutely spotless, in easy reach (by bus if you didn’t come by car) of Windermere & Bowness and slightly further (car being possibly the best option but bus maybe an option (not investigated ) of Grassmere, Keswick, Kendal &, Buttermere (our personal favourite). Bottom line - for a fleeting moment considered trying to conjure up something detrimental about Underhill so we could keep this little gem to ourselves but in reality I could never do that so book it - you won’t regret it - just please don’t book for the week(s) we might want ha ha
Thank you so very very much for your lovely review. I’m so pleased you enjoyed all that Ambleside has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back at anytime.
Had a lovely stay brilliant for exploring the lake district. Well thought out apartment Lesley has clearly taken on board previous guests suggestions to improve the property. Probably one of the most comfortable beds I have ever sleep in
Lovely apartment with views across Ambleside to fells beyond.
Great location five minutes walk to town centre.
So glad you enjoyed your short break - it’s always worth looking out for Late availability at this time of year.
Second visit to this lovely apartment in a great location with easy parking. Everything and more that you need for a break in the Lakes. Lesley is so helpful with booking and communication is excellent. Will be back again.
So glad to welcome you again and thank you for the review. We are having so many returning guests now which is wonderful!
Ambleside is a vibrant little town at the Northern end of Lake Windermere. Many great little bars, restaurants - characterful places to eat and drink and catering for all tastes. Independently owned shops and galleries fill the streets and are a pleasure to shop in. Ambleside even has it's own cinema and restaurant and always the backdrop of the magnificent fells which surround the town. Underhill is centrally situated, you can spend a week walking in beautiful countryside, in any direction, without using your car at all, if you wish.
Or travel the passes amongst the hills and valleys and lakes in one of the most spectacular parts of England.
