  • "I’ve been coming to the Lakes for 30 years and have stayed in a variety of places in and around Ambleside."

    This is by far the best - the proximity to the town, the solitude and quiet plus the insanely convenient parking/garage situation made this a perfect spot. A hose to clean my mountain bike was the icing on the cake. Very minor niggles would be the cost (it’s not cheap) and the WiFi was a bit of pain to sort with EE. But overall it’s hard to find fault. The bathroom and shower were fabulous and the bed super comfy. I will be back for sure!

    Warm and comfortable in an excellent location quiet but close to all that Ambleside has to offer.

  • "I found the cottage acceptable and plenty of car parking space ."

    There were 2 things I would change are , the furniture is a bit dated and requires attention , also the skylight windows require black blinds , because as soon as morning light comes up the whole room is lit up , and for light sleeper like me gets woke up very early a.m. very annoying .

  • "This is the ninth holiday we have spent at the Coach House."

    As usual it fulfilled our expectations - a beautifully presented and very comfortable cottage. We love arriving to the welcome of a glass of Sherry. It just kicks off the holiday mood on the right note. Let me stress we have no complaints but there were a couple of small things to draw to your attention for the future comfort of guests: 1) The blind over the sink only lowers half way 2) The sink in the bathroom empties really slowly 3) The valance (the material round the base of the bed) needs a clean We have already booked for next September and we’re looking forward to another great visit.

  • "This is the 16th time we have used Heart of the Lakes, the last 7 has been to this cottage."

    It was always an enjoyable holiday, however due to your new pricing structure for 2022, which indicates a 26% increase for the same week, it is highly unlikely we will be returning. So we are disappointed not to be returning. As you will see from our previous complementary comments which you have printed we have been satisfied clients.

  • "I have rented this cottage about 6-7 times and I have also booked for a future date."

    It provides the comfort, facilities (including private parking) and is very convenient to the local facilities. Given that it was our first visit since lockdown ended we went in trepidation about the cleanliness/preparations, these were unfounded, the cottage was cleaned and prepared to a high standard, looking forward to our next visit in June.

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.
