Description Oak Royd is one of those special homes which quite simply ticks all of the boxes. Attractively built in traditional local stone and slate this spacious terraced home offers welcoming and comfortable accommodation with space for everyone and a wide range of facilities and attractions immediately on hand.
Some of the views, particularly from the top floor are truly wonderful, looking out to Wansfell and Loughrigg, perhaps tempting you out onto the fells. The dramatic Fairfield Horseshoe is equally accessible from the doorstep for those with the energy, whilst others might consider a stroll along the waterfalls or down to the lake shore enough exercise, perhaps stopping off en-route for a drink or a meal in one of the highly regarded restaurants or inns at the heart of the village. There are cinemas for evening entertainment and of course there are a variety of shops and cafes on hand.
The bright accommodation is arranged principally over three stories, with a basement below. The entrance hall gives access to both the bay fronted sitting room and to the separate dining room, beyond which is the extended kitchen. There is a good basement room below the sitting room, and four bedrooms and two bathrooms spread over the upper two floors.
Simply perfect as a family home, holiday let or private weekend retreat, Oak Royd is highly recommended for early viewing.

Ideal Holiday Letting Opportunity The market town of Ambleside is one of the most popular destinations in the Lake District. Despite the number of holiday cottages available within the town the demand is very high and correctly presented properties can perform well in excess of both local and national occupancy levels. Though the cottage benefits from four bedrooms, consideration may be given to presenting the property as a high quality three bedroom sleep six property offering great accommodation in an excellent location. With the correct quality presentation and marketing Lakelovers (www.lakelovers.co.uk) would anticipate a gross rental income of £33-35,000 with the opportunity to grow this further based on repeat bookings and good reviews and recommendations.
