    “We did have a temporary issue where the hot water was barely coming out of the taps in the Double bedroom ( rest of house was ok).”

    The issue was easy to report to the local team who quickly got the maintentance engineer to check. The maintenance engineers visited whilst we were out and reported the pressure as normal. When we checked it had returned to normal so assume there must have been an air lock in the pipes to our room which had cleared. The house and grounds are magnificent and we'd have no hesistation booking the same appartment again.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
