Guest access

Clappersgate is situated a mile from Ambleside on Coniston road, beneath Loughrigg fell. In the 16th century Clappersgate was classified as a port, since it had a wharf on the Brathay river where slate from local quarries were loaded and taken down river to Windermere and onwards to the south.

The property itself is located at the end of a private driveway, just of the A593. It’s the last property on the estate set away from neighbours so you won’t be overlooked or disturbed by anyone.

Loughrigg Cottage is only a short drive away from Ambleside, which is one of the most picturesque villages in the Lake District. It stands at the head of Windermere and in the middle of some of England’s finest scenery. Ambleside village itself can be a rewarding adventure if you step off the bustling main roads.

Where you'll be

At the northern end of Windermere is the popular market town of Ambleside, perfectly located in the heart of the national park.

Surrounded by majestic Lakeland fells, Ambleside’s roots are in the medieval woollen trade, but the town you see today is primarily Victorian, built of traditional grey slate. With easy access to Grasmere, Keswick, Windermere and an unrivalled range of water sports, walks, climbs, cycling and much more, Ambleside is very popular with both leisure visitors wanting a relaxing break and outdoor enthusiasts looking for a challenge.

There are also some fabulous restaurants, cafés and pubs to satisfy the discerning palette and numerous award-winning ales to quench your thirst. Ambleside’s specialist shops offer a welcome variation on high street chains. There is no shortage of outdoor clothing specialists waiting to kit you out in the latest gear for any activity, from walking to windsurfing.
