    Close enough to town to stroll in in the evening, but out enough to feel you were in the country. There was also a much appreciated welcome pack. Would love to go back in the future

  • "Such a wonderful place to stay with everything we needed catered for, to a high standard."

    The hosts have put a lot of thought into place, and it showed! Place was spotless on arrival, super comfy bed, great shower and downstairs was perfect for relaxing after our walks. Also outside patio was wonderful to sit out on in the early evening. We definitely recommend staying here as also ideal location for walking into town or going off for walks, and view from bedroom was wonderful and we were lucky enough to hear the lambs each morning. Definitely the best place we have ever stayed, and we will be going back! Thank you.

    Hello Jayne, Many thanks for your wonderful, feedback. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes, Nigel and Alison Property Owner

    The first luxury accommodation I have stayed in where there is not adequate bathroom amenities for 4 people for one week.

    Thank you for your comments. As the property is self catering, we do not provide full size bottles of shower or shampoo. The items provided are there to be a starter pack. We hope to welcome you back to the Lake District again. Property Owner

  • "I have previously provided feedback on the drier not working."

    This was reported at the start of our week’s stay, but was never resolved. This reflects badly on Lakelovers, there was a total lack of communication on what was being done about the fault. Apart from this, the property is beautiful and we had a great stay. The hall is very cold though.

    Thank you for your comments. The owner had ordered a replacement washer dryer and the brand installed it. Unfortunately the new unit came with a fault code on it and has had to be replaced! The old unit has been put back in for the mean time, which only has the washer function. A second replacement is due to arrive this Thursday 23rd March. We thank you for your comments. We hope to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "I actually thought the photos on the listing didn't do the property justice!"

    We had a great time staying at Larna Place, and will be back to stay again for sure. It felt extremely clean, and the recent renovations have been done to an excellent standard. I had a bedding request made to the Lake Lovers team when we arrived and this was dealt with within a hour or two which was very much appreciated and great service. As we had a young baby we found ourselves staying in more for meals and cooking than we would have done pre-baby, and were pleased to report the facilities on offer made this an enjoyable experience. Again, the property really was lovely and in a superb location, great amenities, and lots of space.

    We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us and that the kitchen was useful for you and your family. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

    Property was very well maintained and the welcome bottle of fizz was a nice touch by the owners. Bonus to have 2 parking spaces and electric car charging also available. A great position to start some good walks without the need of using the car. Also nice and central to get to Windermere, Bowness and Keswick all in easy reach.

  • "We loved staying at Larna Place."

    It was more than we expected. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We would come back again. Just for the owner - due to the heavy rain over a couple of days, the spouting above the front door was full of leaves, therefore, a lot of water pouring over the front door.

    Hi Mike, Many thanks for your feedback - I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for flagging the overflowing guttering - I hope you didn't get too wet as you entered and exited the property. The property is surrounded by trees and we do have the gutters cleared several times a year. However, in addition, we've now added a 'brush' to the section above the front door to Larna Place which, in theory, should help prevent it from logging in future. Nonetheless, we'll keep an eye on it. Kind regards, Nigel Property Owner

  • "The property was lovely and presented nicely."

    You need to get Lakelovers to listen to your customers. Twice we have stayed and in both occasions the second bedroom was left as a double bed despite being requested to be two singles. I even called a few days in advance to ask on this second visit that this be remembered and resolved. Yet on arrival, still it was a double. I called Lakelovers and a lovely house keeping lady came and sorted it, but bless her she shouldn’t have to do that. Plus I was lucky, I got there on a Friday at 4:20pm, if I had been after 5pm what chance would I have had? Love the property, We will be back, just not impressed with Lakelovers since they sold out to Sykes.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review further to your recent stay with us at Larna Place, although I was really disappointed to read your comments regarding the beds being incorrectly configured for you on both occasions you have been. Please accept our sincere apologies for this inconvenience. We have discussed this with our housekeeping team who manage the property on behalf of the owner and will ensure this does not happen again for any future stays you have with us. Kind Regards, The Lakelovers Owners Team Property Owner

  • "Fantastic apartment, very clean, well equipped and it really is just a short level walk into Ambleside."

    The beds are extremely comfortable and better than those in some hotels we have stayed in recently. We were a little concerned about the potential traffic noise as it is on the main road, but this wasn't a problem at all. The only small negative for us is that the sofas were very low, but this is just personal preference due to our above average heights and age, and I am sure they are fine for most people. Eleven nights was not enough and we could have happily stayed for longer. Very happy overall and are likely to book again in warmer weather as we want to sit outside on the lovely terrace.

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.
