  • "The flat was lovely - found the second bedroom a bit too small for 2 adults, beds felt small - apart from that everything was perfect."

  • "Great location and very clean apartment."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will definitely be back. Secure parking and very quiet area of the town is a bonus too…

  • "On entry to the property, switch on the hall lights, some need new bulbs, how disappointing for something so simple."

    Water turned off, page on the wall indicates a brass tap, one in the relevant outside hall cupboard, wrong tap. Easy to remedy. We have only one tv program we don't want want to miss and that is on ch21, either that channel is not available or we are too stupid to find it Later on we find most if not all the dining chair legs are loose. Big compensation claim on the horizon there. otherwise a very nice flat in a very good location.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the location of the property We apologise for any inconvenience that the issues during your stay caused. We hope to welcome you again. The owner relations team - Lakelovers Property Owner

  • "Well appointed cottage in a lovely quiet setting."

    We were disappointed that we couldn’t use the patio for a coffee or an aperitif as advertised as there was no patio furniture. This would have been appreciated as the weather was glorious. As the lounge and kitchen are very dark it would have been nice to sit outside.

    Thank you for your comments. We were unaware of the issue that you experienced with the outdoor furniture, had you made us aware during your stay we would have attend to try and resolve. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

    This is the second time we have stayed here. Would recommend it.

  • "Very well equipped flat with up to date fittings."

    Warm and comfortable and enjoyed out stay. It was perfect and would thoroughly recommend. However, there was a big problem with the key as it took a lot of wiggling for some time to get the door open and often thought it wasn't going to work at all. We asked for Lakelovers to come and sort this out but no one turned up. We often ended up having the leave the door to the flat on the latch. This obviously made us anxious.

  • "Generally great."

    Only complain is the day we came to drop the keys off, the shop was shut and nowhere to post the keys.

    The location was brilliant, especially being so close to Rothay Park which the kids loved.

  • "We come up to the Lakes as often as we can, but we have never stayed in Ambleside before."

    It was a fortuitous choice this time as we arrived on the night of the big storm, and once we finally made it through all the fallen trees at 2.30am, we also discovered it was one of the few areas still with power! The location was perfect, we could just wander into town as and when we wanted, even taking time to do the local walks. Your apartment was just what we wanted, great location, well equipped kitchen, very clean and a comfy sofa. Our only recommendation is the matress in the main bedroom is soooo hard, we finished up having to use the bunk beds! We would love to return in the future, thank you for sharing your home!

  • "Lovely apartment and had a really comfortable week long stay."

    The apartment is comfortably furnished, really well stocked kitchen equipment, new bathroom. The block that it sits within was really quiet when we stayed. Lovely children's playpark 2 mins away. Would recommend!

  • "Despite listing and photos this is not a ground floor flat."

    It is a basement. There are11 steep steps to the patio. There is dried vomit on steps In a heatwave in July the flat was VERY damp. The bed clothes were horrible to get into, Clothes left in a suitcase felt damp The bathroom needs a deep clean and is not 'luxury'. It is a dated white suite The flat is very dark at all points on a July day in bright sunshine due to massive overgrowth of garden plants, basement location and a north facing aspect The flat was VERY poorly/not cleaned. Hairs everywhere including between plates and wrapped around the door mechanism to the 'ensuite' There is No breakfast bar in the kitchen The bath needs drain cleaner down the plug hole The bedroom furniture is the cheapest I have ever used in a holiday flat. The draws and doors constantly stuck when used We have used Lakelovers for over 30 years! What a horrible disappointment

  • "Ambleside Haven is a little gem if you want a clean modern comfortable apartment."

    It’s very close to town and everything Ambleside has to offer and yet tucked away from all the hustle and bustle that comes with it. Also there is private parking and lovely grounds, Ambleside Haven is on the ground floor and has a lovely small patio area just outside the back door which we used every morning.

About the location


Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 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.
