  • "We were delighted with the property, everything was to a very high standard and very well equipped."

    Right in the centre of town so very handy and the additional parking space was very useful. The welcome hamper was a lovely addition. I would highly recommend this property.

  • "Fantastic property, decorated and maintained to a high standard, everything works, which in my experience is unusual for holiday rentals."

    The property is ideally located in the centre of town with walks on the doorstep with plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby. Parking for our two cars was not a problem in October, there’s parking for one car at the property and we had a permit for the roads near by for the other car and there was always parking available. This might not be the the case at busier times.

  • "Lovely spacious property, the bathroom next to twin must have been missed during cleaning."

    However, we didn't notice until the day before we left as we didn't use it during our stay. Didn't like the wine glasses. The best equipped property we have stayed in.

    As guest comments show our Housekeeper/ cleaners take great pride in ‘their’ property being perfect. The bathroom involved was inspected before the guests arrived and after they left.On both inspections the only problem was that after they left the toilet seat was up…… Property Owner

  • "Absolutely gorgeous cottage right in the centre of town, with private parking, and a few footsteps to all the shops, restaurants, etc that Ambleside has to offer."

    What a find! The house is finished to a very high standard... perhaps better than any I have been in. Everything is spotless, high quality, and everything you might need is there. My younger generation especially loved the second TV room/snug! Also big thanks to the owners and the housekeeper for a quick resolution to the only problem that arose during our stay.

  • "Rossette Holme is a beautiful house, and the family thoroughly enjoyed staying there."

    Best bits are - the very high finish of the house, the extra snug/tv room and the sun deck (and of course the welcome pack - thank you)!

  • "Wow! This cottage is amazing, all the rooms have been furnished to the highest standard and are spotlessly clean (thanks Janet)."

    It has everything you need for a great weeks holiday, if you want to cook the kitchen is kitted out with all you need, if not you are in the heart of Ambleside with pubs, cafes, restaurants at your door. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and very much appreciated, we will definitely be back.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so glad that you enjoyed everything the property and the area has to offer. Property Owner

    Cleanliness and furnishings were superb. Couldn’t get more central. We didn’t realise there was a front door until we were in the property. Welcome basket was wonderful. We will definitely recommend this property to our friends.

  • "Wonderful place to stay."

    As we were getting married it was a fantastic base for the family to prepare for our big day. Had problem with hot water the day before the wedding but was fixed within 2 hours. If being a bit petty you could complain about the delivery noises early morning but you are in the town centre. Plus side is you open the front door and are in the middle of Ambleside .As soon as I (sorry now we) can save the money we will rent it again.

  • "Rossett Holme is the best holiday property in the Lakes that we have stayed in (and we've stayed in several!"

    ). The location is slap bang in the heart of Ambleside and easy to find. Facilities are amazing with everything needed plus more for a family holiday. Beds are super comfy and having 2 comfortable sofa areas is also a plus when staying with a large family group. The kitchen is fully equipped with pretty much everything you can think of. The attention to detail in terms of decoration is clean, stylish and modern. The welcome pack was also an added luxurious extra to start the holiday and went down a treat. I would definitely recommend this property!

  • "Our 2nd visit."

    This is a great property with an excellent position in Ambleside, close to park and a good starting point for walks. Some improvements made since last year which has benefited the main living area. Food parcel again outstanding. Everything you need is there. We would highly recommend this property for a welcoming break.

  • "The apartment is lovely."

    Very spacious over two floors, good sized rooms, with fab en-suites. Everything you could possibly need and a good quality 5 star hotel feel. The decking area was perfect for sitting out in the sun. The downside is the outside noise. The front overlooks the road and the back is noisy in the early morning with deliveries to the back of the shops. I would still go again however :)

    Extremely well stocked with quality kitchen equipment that made self catering easy. Very clean, much appreciated welcome pack and a good supply of basic cleaning products. Beautiful furnishings with comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms, efficient heating with constant hot water. TV package and tv's in all rooms allowed our mixed party to be catered for on wet evenings. The living area is accessed by numerous steps externally at the back and internally at the front. The hallway downstairs at the front of the house provided ideal access for a pram.

  • "The apartment was so well appointed, clean and lots of homely touches."

    Initial supplies were welcome. The location was excellent, though having a view would have been the cherry on the cake. The apartment was spacious and suitable for the number of people in our party. Great to have so many en suites and shower rooms etc. The advertised access to the leisure club makes it sound as though it is close by in walking distance. Not a ten or more minute drive away. Consequently we did not use it. Overall an excellent facility.

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.
