  • "Excellent location and facilities, and very clean."

    Liked the milk and Prosseco left for us. We would definitely return. Only downside was the parking space provided will only suit a small car. I could not get my SUV into the space with another car parked. Free parking is available a couple of minutes away though.

    Thanks for your review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the space is quite tight. We can manage to get our 4x4 in there with a car parked in the other, but we've had practice! it's easier if you back in ;-) Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and unexpected space considering the small frontage."

    Just as a suggestion - we felt that some coat hooks near the front door would have been very useful ( for coats / dog leads), and if there had been space for a shoe rack for wet boots. But it was such a great use of space and the main bedroom was beautifully lit and decorated. Thank you.

  • "A fabulous little cottage right in the centre of town."

    Had everything we needed and is a stylish place to stay- just wish we could have recycled items. We will be coming back!

    Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed our cottage. We thought the same about the recycling so we've now got a new bin provider who sort through and recycle as much as possible - https://www.cumbriawaste.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/What-happens-to-your-waste-RDF.pdf Property Owner

  • "Lovely property."

    Perfect for a short break. I forgot to take a few bits like washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets but it was all there, which just makes it easier. Great directions and information before getting there. Close to town centre, walks, lakes, food shops, takeaways etc. We had a lovely weekend, would definitely book again. Thank you.

  • "Wonderful stay despite the terrible weather!"

    Perfect location for this cosy cottage. Everything we could need was included and the welcome Prosecco was a lovely touch. Would stay again and recommend to others.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; 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.
