  • "Greenaway was a lovely place to stay."

    Everything was very clean and we loved the views from the kitchen and lounge . The garden was great for our dog and there are lots of good walks from the cottage so no need to use the car everyday. It was also very handy for the shops and cafe's just down the road. Would love to stay here again sometime.

    Cottage was brilliantly located and didn’t need to move the car. Cottage was very clean, warm and had all the amenities you needed, including sharp knives. Would highly recommend and will definitely book again for when we return. Thank you.

  • "Lovely cosy bungalow in a great location."

    A 5 minute down hill walk to the village. The house is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has everything that you would need. We had taken my 97 year old mother with us who enjoyed her break. Due to the steep hill up to the bungalow we had to use the car to get her up and down to the village which was a bit of a pain. I would not recommnend this location to elderly or infirm due to the incline getting back up to cottage. For us it was great.

    Thank you for your kind words in your review, we are glad you enjoyed your break. We have taken note of your comments about Gale Rigg and have amended the website information to warn potential guests who are elderly or are infirm - thank you for bringing it to our attention.

  • "The cottage was immaculately clean, and very well equipped."

    We really appreciated the comprehensive information about the bins and heating system, something we've struggled with in other cottages. The bed was very comfortable with the mattress topper on, and the towels were really good quality. The location was also very good, quiet but very close to the town centre. We noticed that BBC1 did not come up on the tv so we had to access it via iPlayer - possibly the channel needs retuning?

    Hi, thanks for your kind words in your review. Also, thank you so much for leaving Greenways so clean and tidy - very much appreciated! I'll check the TV for BBC 1 reception, thank you for letting us know. We hope to see you back again in regards - Phil and Judy. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Greenways."

    The location was superb with just a 5-10 minute walk into Ambleside and a 15 minute walk to Waterhead, making it very easy to explore the local area by foot. The house itself was immaculate, very well equipped and comfortable, with plenty of storage space and two lovely patio areas outside. Highly recommended for an active but relaxing family break.

    Hi Mr Hayman, thank you so much for your positive feedback and also thank you for leaving Greenways so clean and tidy, much appreciated - you are definitely welcome to come back in future!

    We found a Greenways the bungalow very good excellent facilities would not hesitate to recommend only five minutes to the village however due to the a couple of very steep roads it is not ideal for people of a certain age or any medical issues is actually cost ourselves 70 pound in taxis to get back from the town I am so much surprised this hasn't been mentioned before however the bungalow was beautiful and the scenery from all windows was beautiful

    We are so sorry to hear of your problems with Gale Rigg. Nobody has mentioned this as a problem before but we take on board what you say. Although we wouldn’t describe Gale Rigg as “very steep”, we accept that the slope upwards to Greenways could be an issue to someone with health problems. We will liaise with Heart of the Lakes to mention the slope in their property description for Greenways - thank you for bringing this to our attention and thank you for the positive content of the rest of your feedback, much appreciated. While we accept that you probably won’t be returning to Greenways in future, we wish you luck in finding a more suitable Ambleside property more on the level for future holidays Best regards Phil Nendick Property Owner

    Comfortable property, kitchen well equipped. Clean and uncluttered. Seating area front and back. Only one minor maintenance issue, the shrubs / bramble running along side the path from the front to the back garden needs trimming back.

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.
