  • "Our second stay at Romney 17."

    The location of this property is ideal for us, with beautiful views. it’s very comfortable and well equipped and a covered parking space is a bonus too. We hope to return.

  • "Romney 17 has now become our 'home from home'."

    Having stayed here a few times before it really does feel like our second home. We enjoyed the benefit of the newly fitted bathroom and shower room but some of the other features in the apartment are becoming a bit tired. I don't know that I would now class this as a luxury apartment but it is still nice and clean and comfortable. We hope to return in the future so it still ticks all the boxes for us. We had to call for maintenance when we arrived as the freezer was so frozen to freezer door didn't shut properly. I suspect the cleaning team were aware of this as the kitchen bit was moved to keep the freezer door closed. The maintenance man was very helpful and bashed the ice away so the freezer would keep closed, however it may be necessary to replace the rubber door seal. The booking process was easy, as was the key collection. On previous bookings with Heart of The Lakes we received a discount card for savings on the Windermere Steamers and other shops in the area, however this is now a thing of the past. Such a pity as it was a nice touch but I guess businesses have to make savings where they can now. It's just a sign of the times.

  • "Great apartment with a fantastic view over Windermere."

    Easy check in and arrival. Spacious, roomy and airy. Lots of storage and we’ll appointed kitchen. Great location right next to the boat pier for trips on Windermere and the 599 open top bus routes to Windermere and Grasmere stop right outside. Fish and chips and two nice cafes close by plus the Waterhead and Wateredge Inns just over the road and recently refurbished. Only comment, update the bathroom photos online as the current photos don’t reflect the lovely brand new bathrooms that have been installed.

  • "We had a lovely stay, looked out to the harbour."

    Out everyday, went to Lake Windermere in Bowness, Kendal, Keswick, used the bus service which was right outside the the apartment/flat we stayed in, excellent value at £2:00 one way. We even walked into Grasmere and got the bus back having spent a lovely time wondering around the quaint village. Went to Dove Cottage, lovely little café in there. We have visited the Lakes several times using Sykes Cottages, stayed in different areas and it is a beautiful place to visit.

  • "This was our second time in the property."

    The bathrooms have recently been modernised and look great. Everything was fabulous, view amazing! Only complaint is for Heart of the Lakes. We realised when we checked in that the oven had no shelves in it. No out of hours service from Saturday closing until Monday meaning that we were two days without an oven. They have a phone line open on Sunday but nobody responded to our request.

    Thank you for your comments, We are sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with the oven. We will look into this to ensure that our high standards continue to be met. Property Owner

  • "The property is very well appointed."

    Probably the best views of Waterhead Pier. Kitchen is well equipped and very clean. We would definitely recommend this apartment. Our only issue with this visit was not with the property but the management company who didn't advise us of maintenance work being carried out on the driveway. Leaving no access for vehicles.

    It is spacious, of a high standard and of course the views from the lounge and dining area are outstanding and always of interest. Looking forward already to our next stay. NOTE TO OWNER (not for publishing) Can you please consider placing a table light on bedside table between the beds in second bedroom. Thanks.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Romney 17 - the flat is comfortable and view is stunning."

    The space worked for the whole family. It was a well equipped flat and the x-box was a pleasant surprise for our son! It was great to be able to leave the car at home on three occasions and explore on foot, bus and boat from the doorstep. It was a brilliant location to introduce our children to the beauty of the Lake District.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay in Romney 17."

    This was helped by the good weather. The only problem with the weather was that the sun rose early, shining onto the bedroom windows enough to disturb our sleep. Therefore we suggest some additional material to reduce light penetration for these 2 windows.

  • "Premier position, which is we always appreciate."

    The lounge suite is a little uncomfortable for older people like us. The decor is tired. The bathrooms require updating. The beds were comfortable, however, the duvet was far too hot for the summer and the pillows were like sleeping on bricks. The bedroom televisions need WFi connection as the picture just breaks up. Overall, for a premier listing, it was a little disappointing. Other apartments at Romney Grange are of a higher quality for a similar price. Which we have experienced.

    It needs to be replaced.

    The comfort of sofas, chairs etc is very personal. The sofa was chosen to offer “moderate” support. The foam cushions maintain their support far better than feather cushions. The furniture is checked regularly for wear and tear and will be replaced in due course. Property Owner

  • "The property is spacious and comfortable and nicely furnished."

    However we did think that the kitchen could be better equipped especially for a 4 star property. For example there were 3 cheese graters (why would you need 3) and no small side plates and only 3 saucepans. We have stayed in other properties in this complex and they were much better equipped.

    I find this comment surprising as there were 8 side plates when we last checked (Nov 2021.) There were several pans, frying pans plus microwave proof dishes: plenty to cook a meal for 4. We always endeavour to rectify any specific omissions in kitchen equipment Property Owner

  • "The apartment was very clean and well equipped providing every thing we needed for our stay."

    The apartment feels very spacious as rooms are all a good size and thevWiFi is excellent . The views across the lake were amazing and as we like to walk the trek in to town was not a problem. I am afraid I did not find the king size bed very comfortable but that may be personal choice. My only issue was the TV in the living room which needs to be replaced with a smart tv as not only is it quite small for the size of the room the ability to access netflix etc would have been good.

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.
