  • "Fabulous loft space with lovely decor."

    We had a great time and prospect loft played a key part in that. Welcomed by a welcome pack showed that they go the extra mile. Would absolutely recommend to anyone staying in Ambleside!

  • "Great apartment in a great location."

    Comfy bed and sofa and everything you could want in the kitchen. Would definitely stay here again. Car park is a 2 minute walk away

  • "Alot smaller than appeared on website ..."

    Alot smaller than appeared on website Hob didn't work Constant noise from passing traffic Steep hills all round, making parking, access and egress very awkward Neighbours outside security light comes on at night when cars pass close to property

    Thank you for your feedback. Customer comments are very important to us I am sorry that you weren’t able to use the hob. We do provide instructions in the property and we are on hand throughout the whole holiday if there was a problem. We have checked the hob on changeover and its working fine. The loft has new windows that are double glazed and an extremely substantial new door (including category 5 mortice locks), glass panes in the door also double glazed so minimal noise through them. The property is on the first floor and as such is not right next to the road. The road goes quiet at night. The main window has interlined fabric for the inside recess roman blind and interlined thick heavy curtains so the security light cant disturb customers Once again, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback Property Owner

  • "An excellent property - had everything in you could need for a week’s stay, beautifully decorated and a brilliant location (literally just a few minutes walk into the centre of Ambleside)."

    The free parking was an added bonus too! Loved it here. Would definitely return.

  • "Extremely clean, very well equipped, and convenient location close to shops, restaurants and cafes."

    Lovely views of the fells. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week and would definitely stay in the studio apartment again.

  • "The apartment is super but with a little extra thought it could be be perfect for a week’s stay in the Lakes."

    At the moment there is nowhere (other than the fridge) to store your food, nowhere to dry wet clothes (it is the Lakes) and very little storage for walking or cycling kit. It would also be lovely to have cushions for the outside chairs and perhaps a storage unit outside for these to go in. The interior of the apartment is gorgeous but very cramped and the large wooden chair just gets in the way. It would be much easier and more spacious without it.

    Thank you very much for your feedback on our Loft apartment. During the recent renovation we were able to make the best use of floor-space to ensure that we had the optimum design for couples to enjoy their time in the Lakes. As such the open-plan apartment has areas for preparing food and dining, relaxing on the sofa watching the TV and enjoying a good night's sleep in the king-size bed; there are also coat hooks at the door for outdoor clothes and boots. Every aspect of the Loft is well photographed on our website. We do hope you enjoyed your time with us. Many thanks, the property owner. Property Owner

    The only drawback is it is situated on a very busy corner so quite noisy

  • "Whilst looking for somewhere to stay in Ambleside, this studio apartment jumped out at us and we were not disappointed!"

    It has got to be the cleanest, most comfortable and well equipped self catering accommodation we have ever stayed at. It was also in a great location, a short walk from the town centre and with great views from the small private patio area. The bed was very comfortable, the shower powerful and kitchen so well equipped with top quality products, crockery and general necessities. We would definitely stay again and would recommend to any family or friends wanting to stay in the Lake District. Thanks to the owner for providing such a great place to stay and enjoy a wonderful area.

  • "Excellent location, super clean."

    The space is small but perfectly equipped. The only issue, for us, is that the mattress is too soft. Otherwise, excellent.

  • "Beautiful loft-style first-floor apartment."

    Tastefully decorated and renovated to a very high standard.....it had everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable we had trouble getting out of it every morning! We enjoyed the views of the fells from both the apartment and the separate patio area. A perfect escape to the glorious Lake District, which we will definitely repeat!

  • "The accommodation was excellent in every way and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there."

    A microwave has since been added and there was a hair dryer and iron to use too. My only frustration is with the time you have to wait if you have to speak to Sykes, once I was told it wouldn't be long to speak to the department I needed as it was early and no queue, but it was a long time on hold. Two other times, I just gave up.

  • "A lovely property situated in a great location."

    A microwave oven in the kitchen would have been useful. Parking was difficult directly outside the property, however the owner provides a permit to allow you to park for free in the nearby long stay car park ( only a 2 minutes walk from the property ). The permit also allows you to park for free in certain other car parks in nearby villages. We used it twice in Grasmere when visiting, which was really useful. We had a lovely holiday.

  • "Lovely cottage, well presented."

    Only comment to make is that car parking isnt near the property. You have to park some distance away which isnt great, especially in the cumbrian wet weather!

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.
