1 Brathay Fell is a former merchants house, built in the 1870s and operated as a hotel for a period from the 1930s. In the late 70s, the house was converted into the immaculate apartments they are today. The house itself, Brathay Fell, stands in extensive private grounds and is approached by a long drive from the road between Ambleside and Skelwith Bridge – making this the perfect place for your Lake District escape.

Enter through the grand communal hallway and you’ll soon find the entrance to this ground floor apartment. You’ll be greeted into the spacious hallway by way of high ceilings, ‘of-the-time’ décor and a magnificent expression of elegance.

Flowing naturally from the hallway, the impressive and rather sophisticated living space compromises a newly fitted dining kitchen and an open-plan lounge with an array of comfortable seating – be it an evening in front of the SMART TV on the deep cushioned fabric suites, or an afternoon beside the lake view windows, your time at 1 Brathay Fell is sure to be a pleasant one. Adding charm, the wood burning stove is set against a backdrop of full-height windows, ornate cornices and pure grandeur.

A separate snug provides space for a quiet moment, be it to read and make the most of your time away, or to plan your upcoming adventures. A second external door provides access to the private terrace and extensive shared gardens. The snug sofa also converts into a sofa bed, which makes this apartment suitable for up to 4 guests.

The main accommodation is made up of a stunning super-king-sized bedroom, a neat en-suite shower room to the rear and a family house bathroom with free standing bath, basin and WC. The dual aspect bedroom has shuttered windows and French doors, providing an expanse of natural light and access to the private veranda. There’s a definite nod towards the former hotel that used to sit in this very spot: a true showcase of sumptuous luxury.

There is one allocated parking space outside the apartment, with additional visitor spaces right beside the same.

Guest Reviews


Located in the small hamlet of Clappersgate, you’re only a gentle stroll into the well-known, Lakeland village of Ambleside. Here, an array of shops, cafés, restaurants, cinemas and much more awaits.

From the property itself, immerse yourself within the 2.3 acres of shared gardens and woodland, before taking the National Trust footpath from the rear of the property – giving easy access to Loughrigg Fell and an abundance of other walking routes. Or if you’re on the hunt for coffee and cake (and a secret moment of retail therapy) head to the ever-popular Chesters by the River and treat yourself to something delicious.
