  • “We really enjoyed our stay in Ambleside and were really pleased with our accommodation.”

    Just two things to mention ...

    Just two things to mention. 1 We found the instructions about parking slightly confusing. Firstly we were told to park to the left of the property which led us to park in what we later discovered was the turning place; then we were told to park as close to the front door as possible. The later is what we subsequently did. 2 I had a problem with the toilet and shower space. because I am 6'1'', when using the toilet I kept hitting my head against the perspex shower screen; when using the shower if I had my back to the tap, if I inadvertently backed into it, it turned off. I wonder whether a different type of tap might be considered.

    We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for the constructive comments. You're quite right that our wording about where to park is rather ambiguous, and we will alter the instructions for future guests. And we're sorry that you found the shower/lavatory area inconvenient in those respects. It is currently occupied by other guests, but we shall look at it and test it out on Friday. Sadly, there probably isn't a great deal we can do about the space in front of the toilet, but we may be able to do something about the shower. Property Owner

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.
