  • "Lovely comfortable cottage with beautiful views."

    Would definitely recommend.

  • "Nice property just needs some personal touches that makes the holiday maker feel home"

  • "All fine. Convenient location, easy parking and good facilities."

    Garage good for bikes. Warming gas fire in lounge. Good TV - you can connect to your own services like netflix but remember to log out afterwards. 2nd time here, no problems. --- Minor points. Garage door a bit sticky and needs a service. Would be good if you left basics like hand soap in the kitchen and bathrooms. Every time have to buy 4 bars of soap and leave them barely used at the end of the stay. Welcome pack is good but only 3 dishwasher tabs means you have to buy locally and Tesco only sell large minimum pack sizes. Remember to bring some basics with you but that applies to all rentals.

  • "Great bungalow, has plenty of space and views to the fells are awesome!"

    Set in a very peaceful location too. Bungalow is in good condition and well equipped for our holiday, the only gripe is lack of teaspoons and a bin for recycling, when on holiday you don't wish to be looking for a recycling centre. Well recommended

  • "Disappointed not as described or as shown in the photos."

    Newish kitchen and bathrooms but the rest of the fixtures and fittings are worn out and in need of replacement / refurbishment. A Good point, walkable distance to the town and the property has its own large car parking space.

  • "Property was cold, radiators badly need bleeding."

    There was a gas fire but no instructions for use and no idea if it worked or not. Free view crashed twice for 3-4 hrs each time. Smoke alarm needs attention as keep making a noise.

  • "Todd crag,was a decent size property,lovely location,just lots of issues,for example the smoke alarms beeps four or five times a night,because they are on a chain they all beep at once,lights don’t work lounge,main bedroom!"

    Nice kitchen ,couldn’t find a switch for the cooker hood maybe it’s automatic,never came on!lack of cleaning products if you’d have spilt anything luckily we didn’ visitor book either! For saying it’s a four star property,I’m afraid it’s no where near especially when you pay £1400 for a week.we’re not newcomers to renting ,or the lakes must be thirty odd properties under our belt !

  • "We enjoyed a very pleasant couple of weeks staying in Todd Crag."

    The house itself is spacious with a nice kitchen, good quality bathrooms and quite a large garden. Access to a garage is very helpful as we needed to store bikes and the drive was plenty big enough for two large cars. If I was being picky I would say that more pans were needed in the kitchen, one big one and two small ones is not great for cooking for a family of four. A couple of medium sized pans would be very helpful. Some of the bushes in the garden could do with a good trip too as various sets of steps are getting a bit over grown. In summary Todd Crag is a nice cottage and I would happily stay there again.

  • "Lovely spacious house, very convenient walk to Ambleside town."

    The views are just incredible from the house and there was a lovely sitting spot to enjoy a glass of something whilst enjoying the view. The house has newly renovated bathrooms and kitchen and everything we needed with the added bonus of it being dog friendly. Thankyou for a lovely place to stay!

  • "Beautifully located on a hill and helpful to have parking in front of the house."

    Slightly confusing bin emptying instructions and why no on-site recycling bin? We had to go down the hill with a bag of recycling to the recycling area at the bottom of the hill. Also couldn’t locate hairdryer and could’ve done with more coffee mugs and air fresheners in bathrooms. Modern appliances but smallish kitchen dustbin mounted in door. Little information on local sightseeing and places to eat a bit disappointing. Overall a pleasant stay.

  • "The cottage is in a beautiful position and the views are great."

    Unfortunately the en-suite bathroom smelled of damp and it was difficult to get rid of the smell. Blinds or curtains are required at a number of windows and some of the furniture has seen better days. The garden is beautiful and it was such a great week of weather that we spent a lot of time outside.

The property

Resting within a residential cul-de-sac, just a scenic walk from the bustling of town centre of Ambleside is this detached bungalow, Todd Crag.

Situated in an elevated setting, Todd Crag enjoys views of the fells from all the rear windows and offers an ideal holiday accommodation for either two couples or a family wanting a pleasant base from which to enjoy the best of the Lake District.

Arrive at the cottage and park up on the driveway before heading up a few steps to reach the front door.

Step inside to discover the spacious L-shaped living room where you can unwind on the sofa in the evening or on a sunny day, slide open the patio doors to reveal the balcony and take in the sweep of the fells around Ambleside and down to Lake Windermere.

Try your hand at a spot of home-cooking by making use of the quality appliances within the sleek kitchen, including an electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment and a dishwasher.

Delight in the dish at the well-presented dining table, before you pop open a bottle of gin and toast to a magnificent holiday in the Lake District.

Catch up on your rest in the master bedroom, complete with light colours, a fitted wardrobe and a king-size double bed, along with a en-suite bathroom so you can have your own privacy while getting prepared for the day.

There is also a twin room which has use of the fully tiled family bathroom with bath and shower over.

The centre of Ambleside is just a gentle stroll away and offers a wealth of shops, pubs, traditional inns and restaurants to take advantage of, plus an independent cinema which showcases the latest films and live music.

For the avid walkers of the group there are plenty of beautiful walks in the area, with some particularly breathtaking routes towards Stock Ghyll Force, a 70 foot waterfall in a wooded area, as well as around the shores of Coniston Water which also offers some of the best mountain biking around.

Slightly further afield you can access Hawkshead and Esthwaite Water, along with Bowness-on-Windermere, Windermere and Lakeside, each of which host their own attractions and atmosphere.

Todd Crag is an idyllic getaway to one of the UK’s most desirable holiday destinations.

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

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.
