  • "The bungalow is very comfortable, excellent position and the garden and conservatory are a bonus."

    We have stayed here four times, so obviously we like Stone Howe very much . The decor in the lounge is, perhaps a little tired now. The bedrooms are lovely and we hope to return. Thank you

  • "This is our 2nd stay at Stone Howe and we have stayed a Little Stone Howe twice too."

    Totally recommend the whole property. On arrival this time we had a problem and someone came out and sorted it and was very polite and chatty (and most apologetic for coming whilst we were having our tea!!)

  • "Great location although there is a steep climb back up to the house from town - so can be a challenge for elderly, disabled, unfit."

    Well-equipped and everything worked fine, though some changes from furnishings and fittings shown in photographs e.g. comfy-looking conservatory furniture no longer there. Central heating was excellent - really important for Xmas/New Year holiday with elderly parents. Fridge is small and door doesn't always close well. Car parking was a challenge especially if there are guests in flat below and you need to fit 3 cars in driveway.

  • "On the whole the property was fine, but it was stated that there were 2 parking spaces: the second space was impossible for a large car."

    Fortunately, we had recently exchanged our qashqai for a smaller model. Even then it was fairly tight getting the car in and it took 4 attempts and 3 people (1 driver and 2 guides) to get it out. As soon as we managed to get the car out, we managed to find some street parking and left our car there for the duration of the holiday. I also think the conservatory furniture needs attention. We didn’t use that particular room as the seating was uncomfortable and in a bad state of repair. The lounge was very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the property was well decorated.

  • "Spacious and well-appointed accommodation close to the town centre but quiet and with some views."

    We found it very well equipped, a cut above the usual amount of space, well laid out and very comfortable. Having a full bathroom and an ensuite, plus the option of the second parking space, made it generous provision for four people. A most enjoyable stay.

  • "Beautiful cottage with stunning views wherever you look."

    Immaculately clean throughout and everything you’ll need for an enjoyable time. I took my elderly parents as it was listed as only a short walk into Ambleside and thought that would be a perfect spot as they aren’t able to walk too far now, unfortunately what the listing doesn’t say is that it’s situated quite a long way up a very steep road so that made access into the town impossible and parking in the town is very difficult to find a space. As a result we didn’t see any of Ambleside really but it was a great location for exploring the rest of the area.

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.
