  • "Excellent property, great location and accurate listing."

    Clean and spacious flat ideal for visiting Ambleside and the Lakes with convenient shops and restaurants all nearby.

  • "We had a lovely time, the apartment was in a great central location in Ambleside and was modern, comfortable and clean."

    Would definitely visit again. Only negative was the cleaner who appeared at 9.50am and rudely told us we should have been out for 9am (which seemed very early to me!) Wouldn’t have minded had she been polite about the situation but she was rude and matter of fact! Took great pleasure in showing her our paperwork which clearly said depart for 10am! I suggested she speak to Sykes who had provided us with documentation as we’d have been out before 10am had that been the case. Other than her rudeness which annoyed us all, we all had a great time.

  • "Had a great time in this very well equipped apartment."

    The location is central to all amenities and the parking space was a great bonus (if a little snug). The apartment exceeded expectations and the photos don't do it justice. Would definitely recommend and will stay again on our next trip to the Lakes. The steps need care when wet.

  • "Very nice good sized central apartment with many walks and facilities from the door."

    Appreciated the smart TV, Jaccuzi bath and well fitted out kitchen. However some things need attention. The en-suite toilet was moving when you sat on it so we didn’t use this one. The sink in there was blocked with hair and black gunk and would not drain until I cleared it out. Yuk. The microwave turntable didn’t work so we couldn’t use it. The towels provided were also a bit parsimonious.

  • "Lovely, comfortable apartment, very well equipped and in a central location."

    Only one thing to complain about and that was water pressure when running a bath.

  • "Absolutely fantastic accommodation!"

    Extremely spacious and well equipped and right in the heart of Ambleside. Just come back from a week there with two adults and two grown up children and there was plenty room for all. Will definitely book again

  • "Cottage was lovely and i think the pictures 'undersold' it."

    It was warm, clean and in a brilliant location. Facilities great too. What could you do better? There were a surprising number of light bulbs out (6) - so this has not been checked/rectified for a while... Many thanks Steve and Jacquie

  • "We were very impressed when entering the property, the rooms were spacious and the finish to the decor and decoration was excellent."

    Everything had been thought of and it was like a home from home - but better! The spa bath was an unexpected treat, the beds were extremely comfortable and the cleanliness was impeccable. Even the music/chat at night from the bar opposite did not bother us, it couldn't be helped and our host had provided a box of earplugs anyway - we slept very well. All in all it was a gorgeous property in a beautiful location - we had an amazing time.

  • "Extremely noisy due to the bar opposite which had bands on until late on sat and Sunday night and tues night."

    Considering leaving early because it’s been so bad. The metal staircase is not suitable for the elderly or people with small children. Very nice inside but wouldn’t cool again due to the noise

  • "We were pleasantly surprised at the central location, and despite other reviews access to car parking was not an issue, although narrow."

    You do need to be able to climb stairs though The flat was larger than we'd anticipated, well laid out, clean and well equipped. Comfy beds too, and sun streaming through the windows. And a great view from the lounge We had that rarity in Cumbia in April - a week of sun, so thanks for arranging that... We will be booking again, maybe for 2 weeks!

  • "The apartment was large with plenty of room for the four of us."

    It was immaculately clean with comfortable beds and plenty of storage. It's in a brilliant location, very central for the town. Only downside was a couple of drawers in bedroom needed repairing and some late night noise from lily bar across the road but we would definitely stay again.

  • "Fantastic location, well equipped appartment."

    Only downside - could hear noisy people in the flat next door from time to time quite late, but did not spoil our stay.

  • "Very clean well-equipped apartment in excellent location in middle of town."

    Slightly noisy at times due to traffic and parking space a bit tight.

  • "Loughrigg View was a great holiday cottage for our recent trip to Ambleside."

    Location was perfect for all the shops and facilities in the heart of Ambleside. It did however mean that there was noise from the main road outside, it didn’t however cause too much disruption. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need and more, we will certainly be back!

  • "It was a really good apartment, and all as described."

    A small welcome pack (milk etc. would have been nice, most cottages we have rented included this. It may be worth pointing out in the description that the apartment is on a busy junction with quite a bit of road noise, and is opposite a bar (The Lilly) which is open very late and pretty noisy if you have the windows open in summer

  • "Only that it is not clear in description about the 23 outside metal steps up to the property."

    The property would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues . Even somebody with bad knees would struggle.

    Good location. Comfortable and clean. Well equipped kitchen. Only annoying thing was the kitchen units' plinth kept falling off!

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
