    Unfortunately the upstairs shower was leaking when we were staying so we only had the main bathroom to use for the 4 guests. Aside from this we would happily book to stay again in the future and we had a brilliant trip.

    Thank you for your comments. We will ask our Maintenance team to look into the issue that you experienced with the shower. We hope to welcome you back. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team. Property Owner

    Super comfortable beds and good bathrooms. Lovely to open the upstairs window and hear the blackbirds singing and jackdaws hopping around chimney pots. Great days out walking (no need to drive), beers and food in local pubs (cottage is at the heart of the village) and evenings by the fire.

    It's in a fabulous location, just a stone's throw from the main Ambleside public car park and the town centre. It's well appointed, very comfortable and lives up to its name.

  • "We loved our stay in cosy cottage."

    Everything was as we expected and we appreciated the good quality accessories in the kitchen and throughout. The cleaners did however overlook a used towel that had been left by the previous occupants which considering COVID was a little clumsy as they are meant to take more time to clean thoroughly. This is a lovely little cottage and owners have really made the most of the space.

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.
