  • "It was a tiny but lovely little cottage, perfect for one or a couple."

    It was really quiet, in a little mews off a side street and you would never know it was there, whilst at the same time it was very central in the town centre and close to the bus stops, shops etc. It was a quaint little place with timber beams and had real character. Not much in the way of 'white goods' in the kitchen but you can make do. Overall I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely choose it again.

    The interior of the cottage is beginning to look tired, especially in the kitchen, cabinets that do not shut, poorly fitted oven, and the shower needs improving, shower doors fail to meet and close properly, we first visited 8 years ago and it has deteriorated over the years, small amount of investment would make a lot of difference

  • "The cottage was clean and tidy but there were a small number of issues."

    There were no dishwasher tablets, no scouring pad for washing up and no black plastic bags (we were asked to put the bed linen in one of these but couldn't find any). Similarly, there was only a single toilet left and many of the light fitting did not have bulbs in them. These are items we would not be expected to take with us and have not needed to on numerous visits to the Lakes on previous occasions when we have stayed in similar accommodation.

    We thank you for your feedback further to your stay with us at Cobblestone Cottage. We do hope you enjoyed your holiday! I am responding on behalf of the owner of the property. I would like to express the apologies from the housekeeping department for the oversights you experienced during your stay. This is not usual for us and in this instance it seems it was just down to an error. The team have been made aware and we will continue to provide an excellent service on behalf of our owners. We would have been happy to attend if we were contacted during your stay to rectify these issues for you. We really hope to welcome you to stay with us again. Property Owner

  • "Cobblestone Cottage is very sweet and well placed in the centre of Ambleside."

    It is MUCH smaller than expected (which does not come across in the photographs) and is all rather tired and in need of a refurb. There is no oven, although there was space for one (just a microwave). Although I think it must have been cleaned some time ago, all of the surfaces in the kitchen and bedroom and bathroom felt dusty and grubby and so I cleaned them all before use. The bedroom was so small that it was a real squeeze to get past the end of the bed (past the open stairway) to get to the bathroom. The bathroom door did not shut (when you see the layout, you will see how important this is). The bed was not at all comfortable and the red plastic sofa was totally out of place and rather horrid. The TV was the size of my iPad. The gas boiler (which I had to look straight at from my bed) kept firing up all night long which disturbed by sleep massively. We were not allowed to turn it off. It could be a fabulous place, despite it’s size. The access was a bit dodgy too and we had to literally squeeze past the electricians van (and we are both slim). A couple of times we also had to step over builders stuff on the floor of the cobbled passage. Not at all good value for money. I run my own AirBNB and my standards are much higher. Disappointing accommodation really.

    We thank you for your observations but wish to point out. The description of the property says petite, the photographs show the leather sofa and we have no control over parked vans . The property has recently been fully redecorated new blinds fitted and new linen provided. The property had been spring cleaned after the decorating was carried out. We will address the issue of the shower room door over the coming days, and thank you for bringing this to our attention. The microwave/ oven is correctly advertised as such and and has since been replaced. We thank you for you feedback and hope that despite this issues had a wonderful time enjoying all the Lakes has to offer. Property Owner

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
