  • Mr Ramsey

    “Lovely house, clean and in a good location.”


    However, our booking clearly stated 10am check out. When we saw a sign in the house saying 9am check out, we thought this was a mistake. The cleaner was waiting at 9am. This should be made clear on the booking to reflect this, as we felt rushed out. The master bedroom curtains do not cover the windows or have a black out lining, and let the sun in from early in the morning. The rear gate is not small dog friendly; it would be good if a wire mesh could be added as our dog managed to escape.

    Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. We will check the departure times with the HK team and the owner, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will also address the other issues you have raised too with the owner. Once again, we thank you for taking the time to give us your valuable feedback. - Sykes owner relations

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.
