    • “This delightful cottage was most welcoming with well thought inclusions. It was very comfortably furnished and ideal for self catering. It was very well located just a few minutes walk from the centre of the charming village.”

    • “perfect location, perfect accommodation”

    • “This is a perfect cottage for two. It is surprisingly spacious, with a very well appointed kitchen, comfortable seating, exceptionally large bathroom with plenty of hot water. It is spotlessly clean. The added bonus is the parking space and proximity to ambleside. Wifi would have been the icing on the cake but there were plenty of wifi cafes and pubs in ambleside. The booking procedure and key arrangements were straight forward. We loved it and will be going back later this year”

    • “We stayed at Two Tweenways in June 2011. This is a very nice, we equipped little cottage that makes and ideal base to explore Ambleside and Lake Windemere. There is nothing this cottage lacks, it has a huge bathroom with a separate bath and power shower (ideal after a long walk). The Kitchen is very well equiped and even had brandy glasses (you cant even get them in some Pubs!). If there is one downside, it is situated on a busy road (like most hotels/cottages in the lakes) but after a while you get used to the noise of the traffice.”

    • “Nice cosy cottage”

    • “We booked the cottage for Xmas week, having been before we knew the lay out inside and where it was regards shops, pubs, restaurants. It is a comfy cosy warm place and we spent a nice week there, we were inside more than planned due to wet weather and able to enjoy the TV and the radio and warmth. The bathroom has a lovely big shower and a deep bath. One minus side was the traffic noise as on main road but one does get use to it. Ambleside is a good base for walks, busses, car trips with a good variety of pubs, restaurants, shops, Picture houses etcs”

    • “A very comfortable and warm cottage. In a good location in town with good facilities nearby but plenty of short and long walks from the door. The off road parking space is particularly helpful in Ambleside.”

    Mr Wray, Bungay, March 2015

    • “A lovely place to stay, the extra additions made it feel like a home, not just a place to stay.”

    Mrs Loveday, Helenvale, March 2015

    Mr Madden, Bury St. Edmunds, June 2014

    • “The cottage was well situated for the shops, for walks and cycling. The cottage was comfortable and an ideal base for the Great North Swim in which my husband was taking part. We had a great week.”

    Ms Connor, Nottingham, June 2014

    • “We loved the town, the countryside and the general atmosphere. Most importantly Tweenways 2 felt like a real home and not just a place to stay. A lot of thought has been put into providing small pleasures and the local guide provided by the owner was a great help in choosing where to go and where to eat. Full marks!”

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
