  • "A fantastic stay in Spring cottage and the accommodation was perfect for us and our son."

    He loved playing the games and exploring the garden area. The furniture was comfortable however, if you are 6 foot plus, the double bed will not quite cater for a comfortable sleep with the tail board. We will definitely be rebooking again to stay in this perfect location.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Spring Cottage and would highly recommend it to other guests."

    The property is in a beautiful location and a short walk into town, although the hills were a little steep in places and would be a problem for those with limited mobility. The cottage was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay, although no spare toilet rolls! The waterfall is quite loud from the bedrooms but it didn't keep us awake, and was quite soothing. We would definitely stay here again!

  • "Great week spent at Spring Cottage with lots of hiking and sightseeing around the area."

    The property has a fantastic central location, double width covered parking and an upside-down layout alongside lovely bright decoration which made for a very pleasant place to be in (occasional) inclement weather. We found no issues with the WiFi, but the label had worn off a little - perhaps making it hard to determine the first few password characters (p64G)? We would have preferred a dishwasher over the washer/dryer in the kitchen while the 2nd bedroom remained noticeably colder than the rest of the property and weirdly, each time we returned to the property we would discover some worms/millipedes (?) had managed to get in under the rear door and fallen down the stairs – but none of that would deter us from staying here again.

  • "We were really impressed by the cottage which has been decorated and furnished/accessorised really tastefully."

    We were initially concerned that the noise from the waterfall would affect our sleep but it soon becomes nothing more than background noise. The only negative is that the shower screen was not big enough which resulted in puddles of water on the bathroom floor each time it was used. And we could not get the WiFi password to work.. but we were able to connect to our own BT Broadband via the hub. Well with a walk down and up the other side of the beck to a lovely waterfall. Plenty of nice places to eat in Ambleside and of course the beauty of the Lakes on your doorstep. One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.

  • "Overall the property is lovely and it's high on our shortlist to book again."

    A few quibbles: The lights in the mirrors don't work, or we just couldn't work out how to switch them on. Those modern electric hobs are a nightmare to operate without instructions. Totally un-intuitive and frustrating. Please provide the manual. Your wi-fi code in the handbook is out of date but we used the one on the router. The solid oak furniture is great but there is room for a 5 foot bed (king). We find a 4 foot 6 inch bed (queen) a bit cramped. Downstairs was nice and cool but upstairs got very hot in the week we were there. A couple of electric fans would be appreciated.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. We will ask our Maintenance Team to look into the points raised with the mirror, and we will take a look at the information provided to ensure that it is up to date. We do find that beds are down to personal preference. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Our 6th stay in 7 years and still a lovely cottage in a wonderful location."

    Long may it stay on your books as it feels like our own holiday home. Good to see the hairdryer flex has been replaced and the grill rack sorted out from last year. However, we were disappointed to note that this year the light tubes in both bathroom mirrors need to be replaced. The one in the main bathroom is potential fire risk as if accidentally turned on it gets really hot but you cannot see that it is on unless it is dark. Also, still think the cottage needs a bigger teapot capable of catering for four guests and we noted there are now only three bowls rather than four.

  • "Outside seating area very restful with tranquil views."

    Furnishings and décor excellent. Enjoyed sitting in bay window with grandson. No room for one but…. a dishwasher would have made it perfect. Would definitely stay again. Stayed in 3 properties on the Falls and Spring Cottage is definitely the best. So light and airy in the lounge.

  • "We have stayed in the property on several occasions in the past."

    Very well presented, comfortable and had all the facilities we needed. Very convenient for walking into town and surrounding area. The only complaint was the mattress in the double room which has a large 'pot hole' in it and really does need to be replaced - hence the low grade on comfort.

    Many thanks for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We can confirm that the mattress in question has now been replaced. Property Owner

  • "While mostly clean, the pizza tray and baking trays were greasy and had food left on them."

    Most importantly of all the double bed has a serious sag suggesting a broken spring and the mattress, which was most uncomfortable on one side, needs replacing.

  • "This is the first property we have stayed in that we’ve been genuinely really happy with."

    The photos on the website match the accommodation. We got the lucky week with the weather-bright sunshine and 30 degrees-and the upside layout of the house worked perfectly making the bedrooms cooler at nighttime. Having the windows open and listening to the water was just magic. It’s in a super location, town centre only a few minutes walk away. Great longer walks on the doorstep (beating the sun up around the Fairfield horseshoe was a fantastic experience!). There is plenty of private parking-easy room for two cars. Very close to being a perfect 10 holiday.

    Thank you kindly for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "Lovely layout upstairs but bedrooms below left us with issue as you couldn't sleep if someone was up and moving around up stairs."

    Outside space needs looking at as it has had no attention ,chairs need a good scrub, grass was knee high so couldn't even sit on that instead. Also think that the noise from the falls should be mentioned as i found it very loud, also bedrooms and bathroom seemed to have a lot of insects around which seemed odd as we didn't have windows open . On a plus note bedrooms lovely and cool, sofas very comfortable and soft furnishings lovely.

    The only problem is that the beds are not long enough. If you are 6ft it makes for a difficult sleep. In the future, I think we would look to make sure the beds are larger.

  • "Nice, comfortable place, good location, pleasant stay."

    We were a bit surprised to find the kitchen bin full of rubbish when we arrived, though otherwise the place was generally clean. Some kitchen items could have done with a bit of an update - e.g. blunt knives and veg peeler made food prep a bit frustrating, and limited number of some items - small things but combined with lack of spare loo rolls, lack of dishwasher, etc, generally led to a feeling of the property being slightly substandard, considering what we’d paid for the week! Also worth noting that the stairs to the front door could be a bit precarious/slippery when wet!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide further feedback following your stay at Spring Cottage. Following your feedback the property owner has purchased and replaced the kitchen utensils for the benefit of future guests. Lakelovers Housekeeping would like to apologise for the oversight regarding the kitchen bin and we do hope our team were able to rectify this immediately. As standard in our self catering properties we do provide one toilet roll per bathroom and all amenities are listed in the property description. We do hope that despite these issues you had a wonderful time in the Lakes as we hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future. Property Owner

  • "Purely in the spirit of being helpful and not complaining; - one of the single duvets needs to be replaced as it is badly stained, which was quite off-putting!"

    There was no toilet roll in the upstairs bathroom and only one downstairs; spares would have been appreciated. The fridge door possibly needs adjusting as you have to be careful to make sure it is fully closed and doesn't start defrosting. It would be good to have some general instructions re the central heating, bin collection day, etc. Overall, the property is absolutely fabulous and we really enjoyed our stay, We hope to book again next year.

    Thank you for your additional feedback following your stay at Spring Cottage. Since your feedback the property owner has carried out a full renovation of the property and purchased all new kitchen appliances and furniture ( including a new fridge). Lakelovers would like to apologise for the oversight regarding the toilet roll and we have also ensured the information folder has been updated and is available to guests. We do hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Property Owner

  • "The fridge door wold not stay closed."

    The freezer was filthy and needed to be defrosted. There was mould around the bath There were cobwebs within easy reach of anyone cleaning the accommodation. The accommodation is ready for decoration if it is to be regarded as suitable for listing as higher standard. There was no hand soap or dish washing soap. Dishwasher tablets were left in a 'welcome' pack but there was no dishwasher. The batteries in the TV remote need to be changed. There was insufficient cutlery. The external stair needed to be cleaned.

    Owners need to look at their cleaning regime or the cleaners they have employed areas in the apartment clearly being missed especially with COVID .The outside area could not be used as it had no attention in several months ,(sunny week )so it was a disappointment unable to use . In all we would recommend this unit but advise that you bring cleaning solutions .

  • "Spring Cottage is a really lovely ‘escape’ with fantastic views of the falls."

    The window looking out onto the waterfall was a particularly nice feature of the property. The only downside, which is not a criticism of Sykes, was that someone had let their dog foul right at the bottom of the steps leading to the front door and we have a baby and toddler so that wasn’t pleasant. Also, the field garden at the back was great and we would have made more use of it but again we saw people walking their dogs so we were a bit wary of the kids standing on something.

The property

This stylish cottage-style apartment, set over two upper floors, enjoys a peaceful setting within Ambleside's prestigious Falls development, overlooking Stockghyll Falls from the fabulous upper floor living space, and is a 5 minute stroll from the village.

There is lovely, calming atmosphere, thanks to soothing natural colours, & light streaming in.

Private parking for 2 cars, including undercover parking.

Steps lead to the first floor entrance hall, with space for your walking gear.

The lovely, fresh bedrooms are on this first level (1 double and 1 twin) as is the luxurious house bathroom with shower over bath.

Upstairs to the light and airy open plan living space, where sitting and dining areas have fabulous outlooks towards Stockghyll Falls.

A sleek modern kitchen with granite finishes just off the dining area, is well equipped for home-cooking.

A cloakroom provides access to a lovely patio and field garden.

Walks begin in every direction, as Ambleside is a popular base for walking in the Lake District.

The village is packed with tasty eateries and a wide range of contemporary shops - from useful supermarkets to quirky gift stores and expert outdoor clothing stores.

By night, there’s plenty to do – cosy traditional pubs, special award-winning restaurants, a jazz club and 2 independent cinemas. A nice walk from the village centre is Waterhead Pier, on the northern shores of Lake Windermere where you can hire a rowing boat, enjoy a drink or a meal overlooking the lake at the Water’s Edge Inn, or take an elegant lake cruise to Bowness or Lakeside - a great way to explore car-free.

Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly, and also offer evening cruises. Ambleside is full of history.

The tiny 'Bridge House' is one of the most photographed buildings in the area; sat on a bridge in the middle of the village.

There’s also the remains of a Roman fort, Galava.

One of William Wordsworth's former family homes can be visited nearby at Rydal Mount & Gardens.

His Grasmere home, Dove Cottage, is also open to the public and only a short drive away on the A591.

Over the spectacular Kirkstone Pass and you arrive in beautiful Ullswater.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
