The Lake District

'Briar Nook' is situated right in the very centre of the cosmopolitan lakeside town of Ambleside, which itself is situated right in the very centre of the world famous Lake District National Park in Cumbria. The Lake District National Park is the most beautiful part of Great Britain. All you need for this romantic holiday is a strong pair of walking boots and a spirit for adventure, the dramatic scenery of the Cumbrian fells will warm your heart and feed your soul. Although you’ll feel tired after a week of fell walking, you’ll return from this holiday feeling physically revitalised, mentally relaxed and thoroughly alive.

Once you arrive at ‘Briar Nook’ you don’t really need a car at all! You can climb either Loughrigg Fell or Kirkstone Fell (both an easy 1500 ft) from the front door. Food supplies are available from a range of local shops nearby and a Car Parking Permit is provided for you free of charge for the duration of your stay.

'Briar Nook’ is a well established 4 Star lakeland holiday let and comprises the entire ground floor of an 18th Century English Lake House with spacious high ceilings. It comes fully and traditionally furnished with a large lounge, a double bedroom, a fully fitted kitchen and a modern bathroom with WC, bath and shower. There is also a second toilet separate from the main bathroom.
