  • “The photos online don’t do the cottage justice.”

    It is cosier and Nicer than I thought it would be. Lovely comfy sofas and the bedrooms had nice cupboard space. Also the living room was a good family game area. The flat is on multiple levels so everyone had a room to go to be alone if needed. ...

    It is cosier and Nicer than I thought it would be. Lovely comfy sofas and the bedrooms had nice cupboard space. Also the living room was a good family game area. The flat is on multiple levels so everyone had a room to go to be alone if needed. However the cleaning could have been tad better - but that’s usual with these quick changeover properties - we spotted a couple of spiders in ceiling and bits left inside drawers. The kitchen was well equipped but agree with the other reviewer that a few more large mugs would be good so you’re not running the dishwasher everyday. Also I doubt all kitchen utensils are cleaned properly and much felt untouched for a while. The mattress was pretty bad in main bedroom - old and when one person moves the whole thing squeaks and moves. We loved the distance to town (away from the bustle but only a few mins walk up/downhill which we liked for the exercise). I also loved the sound of the waterfall behind the flat - you couldn’t hear when the windows were shut but it was really relaxing so we left them open. I would stay again if not for the mattress. (Also I was told there would be mattress protectors but there weren’t.). I would also say Ambleside is much much nicer to stay in than Bowness or the More touristy towns - which are more like a commercial in shops and atmosphere than you want when you come to the Lake District (friends staying In Bowness much preferred Ambleside).

This property is part of the Heart Of The Lakes collection.

The property

Built as part of the original mill building, this three-storey terraced property rests in the prestigious Falls area on the outskirts of Ambleside.

A wonderful choice for a small family or couple, Blencathra is suited for both those seeking a relaxing holiday away from the crowds and those looking to explore the tourist attractions of the Lakes.

After a day of high level fell walks, put your feet up in the first-floor sitting room, opening up the balcony doors to let in the fresh breeze of the countryside, or take some drinks outside and enjoy the last of the evening sun surrounded by your loved ones.

The kitchen/diner is appointed with everything you could need for a weekend away, including a washer/dryer if your adventures take off on a muddier route.

Head to the second floor and discover the bedrooms, comprising of a double and twin, along with a bathroom with bath and shower over.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find many walks from the door and down the hill towards Stockghyll, an area of pretty woodland and cascading waterfalls.

Ambleside is close by and retains a unique atmosphere whilst offering a range of independent shops, numerous cafés, pubs, restaurants and two cinemas for those rainy days.

Take yourself further afield and enjoy the stunning scenery on the Windermere cruisers before jumping off and exploring the quintessential villages of Bowness and Ulverston.

A stay at Blencathra promises a delightful retreat, at any time of year.

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.
