  • "Excellent cottage in a great location with an added bonus of a parking space right outside."

    Nice and peaceful with easy access to everything we wanted for our holiday. Really enjoyed our time and would recommend the property to anyone . Just a couple of suggestions that we thin would make things a little better for guests 1) Have some hand soap in kitchen as when preparing food etc this would be useful. 2) Only 1 toilet roll available - did not find any replacements - not sure if this was stated on the booking etc but we brought some just in case. Overall a very nice cottage which fully met our expectations - thank you very much Paul and Jamie Samuel

    Many thanks for the great feedback, we’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! A bottle of hand wash is usually provided in the kitchen and bathroom, apologies this was overlooked. As a rule, at least one toilet roll is supplied during each stay. Kindest regards, the owners Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, very clean and well equipped, good location, and very comfortable."

    Only a minor thing, a chopping board would have been nice in addition to the glass heatproof worktop board. We would book again as the property is lovely but, the only thing that would potentially put us off is the fact that there is no washing machine. We did know this when we booked and there is a launderette nearby, but who wants to spend their precious holiday time in a launderette?

    Many thanks for your feedback, It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We take on board all the comments and hope you will consider staying with us again. Kind regards, the owners. Property Owner

  • "Second time here for New Year's Eve."

    Impressed by cleanliness and facilities the first time and glad to see the high standards maintained ( with exception of mattress covers which were stained). Close to everything you need in Ambleside and as a poor sleeper the extra cozy little bedroom is really handy.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Four Seasons Cottage. The mattress protector has been removed for cleaning and we would like to assure you that they are changed on a regular basis to maintain the high level of cleanliness that we like (unfortunately tanning products create a lot of issues that require deep cleaning/replacing of items) Kind regards, the owners.

    Though small it is really conveniently situated only a couple of minutes level walk from all the facilities of Ambleside. A great base from which to explore the surrounding fells. Easy off road parking and an excellent rainfall shower in the bathroom are big plus’s to the property. The cottage is well maintained and was very clean on arrival. One minor criticism; the leather sofa and armchair are very deep (for smaller adults) a few more cushions would be appreciated. We enjoyed our stay, thanks.

    In terms of comfort, Cleanliness and the provision of facilities we were extremely happy. If we had to make any criticism which on a minor basis isn't really necessary, we would just like to mention the addition of the following comforts. Small touches such as waste paper bins, boxes of tissues, bin bags and spare light bulbs would crown a otherwise perfect stay in to an unbeatable standard.

    Thank you for your feedback which is greatly appreciated and all your comments have been noted. We will ensure that waste paper bins and extra bin bags are provided. Heart Of The Lakes maintenance team are always on hand to replace lightbulbs and deal with any issues which may arise during your stay.

  • "Compact cottage which suited our needs , place was spotless when we arrived."

    Could possibly do with a bit more crockery but apart from that we enjoyed our stay. We couldn’t get shower temperature as hot as we would have liked but was working fine. Bed was very comfy with spare pillows etc supplied. No issues with heating, Hive timer ensured always warm throughout. The entrance vestibule was always very cold and wasn’t really suitable to drying wet clothing or shoes - well not in February anyway! Would still recommend and would consider staying in Four Seasons in future.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The shower can be set to the ideal temperature with a pop up button on the right hand tap. If this needs to be altered, this can be done by turning the tap either forward or backwards to suit (instructions in guest book provided) As there is no heating in the small entrance hall, the upstairs landing cupboard can be used for airing damp clothing during the wet weather.

Sadly one of the neighbouring cottages experienced a severe water leak which affected the shared aerial booster located in their property. The electricity needed to be turned off until safe.

    Blinds or nets at the window . There was only curtains so for privacy having to close the curtains all day. No washing machine which was disappointing you need that . Also no hair dryer which I couldn’t believe I had to leave my hair wet wasn’t good.

    Thanks for your feedback. The cottage is situated in a small, private and quiet courtyard with six other properties. Privacy has never been raised as an issue prior to this year, but as it has been commented on twice, it is something we are looking into. Hairdryers will soon be provided. With regards to a washing machine, we do not list this as a facility as there is currently none available in the property. Best regards. Property Owner

    Some vertical/privacy blinds would be nice - as the sofa faces the car park we were on show and so not very relaxing unless the curtains were closed. We love pet free propertys - much more hygienic, thank you. But unfortunately during our 2nd week Juniper Cottage/next door had a dog which barked in the middle of the night and ruined a couple of days holiday as were so tired - not nice being woken at 3.30 a.m. on more than one occasion. Obviously this is out of your hands but I think you should be made aware that this can be an issue. Happy for you to publish my feedback if ANONYMOUS. Thank you.

The property

Set within the cobbled town of Ambleside, Four Seasons is a delightful stone-built Lakeland cottage that has been renovated to a high standard throughout.

Surrounded by magnificent lakes and breath-taking fells, this humble abode offers a wonderful base from which to explore the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District, whether you’re a couple of keen hikers or a small family looking for a relaxing countryside retreat.

Step inside the warm and welcoming hallway, leaving your coats to hang and your muddy boots to dry before continuing through to the attractive open-plan living space, home to a compact kitchen, a sociable dining area and a sitting area with plenty of seating.

Completing the ground-floor is a wonderful airing space, perfect for drying out all of your wet clothes following an action-packed adventure out on the waters.

Make your way upstairs, where you will discover two lovely bedrooms comprised of a double and one single, both decorated with solid oak furnishings to provide ample storage space for all of your belongings.

Across the way, the newly fitted bathroom can be found boasting a roomy bathtub with a handy shower over, as well as a basin and WC.

Make the most of warmer climates with afternoons spent lounging at the outdoor seating area with a warm cup of tea, or why not set about on a scenic stroll to the centre of the town for a bite to eat at one of the many local cafés or restaurants before taking a tour of attractions such as Stock Ghyll Force, the ancient remains of Ambleside Roman Fort, or the beautiful woodland of Borrans Park.

A pleasant walk away, the village of Rydal is home to the magnificent cottage of Rydal Mount and Gardens, the former residence of William Wordsworth, and the mesmerising Rydal Cave.

There’s fun to be had over in Bowness-on-Windemere with The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and ample opportunity to set sail on a tranquil river cruise, before crossing over to the West Shore for a breath-taking walk to the 19th century fortress of Wray Castle.

Tour the mountains of Red Screes and Scafell Pike, where you will be rewarded for our efforts with sweeping views of the countryside.

With all this to do and so much more, Four Seasons offers a fantastic setting for any type of self-catering holiday, no matter the time of year.You enter this attractive cottage through an entrance hall with hanging space for waterproofs and muddy boots.

Further in, you will find a beautiful lounge and kitchen diner with delightful solid oak furnishings. Make your way upstairs, where you will discover two lovely bedrooms, one double and one single, both with solid oak bedroom furniture, providing ample cupboard and wardrobe space.

The newly fitted bathroom has a bath with mains shower over, basin and WC.

Airing space is available for wet clothes.

After a day exploring, relax in the comfortable leather suite, oak furniture and oak effect flooring.

The stairs and bedrooms are fully carpeted. Take a short two-minute level walk to the centre of town, or walk to Waterhead, just 10 minutes away, where you can take a cruise or hire a boat on the beautiful lake.

A bonus is a private parking space for one car in the courtyard and a small seating area with a wooden bench is ideal for catching the afternoon sun.

Ambleside bus station and laundrette are nearby.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
