  • "A beautiful property in very good order inside and out."

    Located in a lovely location with great views and within 10mins walking to the centre of Ambleside. Enjoyed our stay with our family and slept well. No complaints at all.

    Thank you for your kind comments. It is lovely to hear that you and your family had an enjoyable stay. We hope to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Everything generally very good."

    Heating was an issue, but in fairness it was exceptionally cold weather. Had to get maintenance in to sort out the heating which we could not get working on the top floor. A knife sharpener would be handy as all carving knives were blunt. Otherwise an excellent location and facilities. We will be back for sure.

  • "Had a fantastic 3 night stay at Wynford in Ambleside."

    Couldn't fault this beautiful house in any way. We were 7 adults and 4 children and everything you could possibly need was provided. The house was heated perfectly too. Would highly recommend and Lakelovers were very easy and helpful to deal with keeping us fully informed at every stage.

  • "Excellent facility’s, thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday, parents, four children, partners and a ten month old."

    Everything had been thought of and supplied, a few maintenance issues noted but nothing that impacted our holiday. Roman blind on stairs broken and a crack on outside of skylight…as I say minor details. We struggled initially with opening the front door, user error but a heads up for future cottage users might save a call out for the very helpful and friendly maintenence team. More hanging space / clothes storage for the dressing room area in the loft would have been nice, a nice to have and did not impact on the holiday! A beautiful and well thought home from home!!

  • "A great property in an excellent location, easy reach of Ambleside town centre and the hills."

    Plenty of space for our family and having en-suites were an absolute bonus. The views were fantastic from the property and kitchen facilities were excellent. We would definitely stay again. Just a small thing, there was a very strange message that was meant to be amusing on a pin board relating to the serial killer 'Fred West'. We could see the funny side, but some people might find this disconcerting and offensive. I would remove this if I was the owner as you never know what you might get!

  • "Beautiful, clean, comfortable and perfect for our four generation family holiday."

    Plenty of room around the open plan kitchen, dining and living areas so we didn't feel like we were falling over each other. Our two springadors enjoyed the enclosed garden area and slept comfortably in the utility room. The bottom stair gate was useful in stopping them trying to explore upstairs and my nearly 2 year old grandson learned to bump down the stairs on his bottom so a top stair gate wasn't necessary. The location up a bit of a hill was peaceful but still very handy for everything in Ambleside and taking his time even Great Grandpa at 89 managed the walk. There were plenty of pots and utensils for cooking though another couple of serving dishes would have been handy. We had a fabulous stay and have already booked again for next year.

    It felt as though normality was restored,and to spend that time at such a fantastic home was a privilidge. Many thanks, hope to be back next year.

  • "The communal areas in this house were ideal for our multi-generational holiday, whether at the dining table, cooking in the kitchen or relaxing in the lounge no one was left out."

    All the rooms were a good standard, with there being no need to squabble for the best room. Kitchen was well equipped, although the baking trays only fit in the larger oven which took some oven juggling for cooking. The views from the lounge snd dining areas were great, and although it rained consistently so we didn’t get to use the outside space this looked lovely and there was ample parking. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "The accommodation was brilliant but could have done with some oven gloves and more than one tea towel."

    The wheelie bins were full on arrival and were not emptied during our stay. This was a major issue that could have potentially harmed what was almost a perfect holiday

    All but one of the rooms is en-suite and the 6th room has an adjacent bathroom which is a valued aspect of staying with family/friends. The kitchen is well fitted out with useful good quality stuff. There are two outdoor areas set up with nice outdoor furniture which we made much use of.

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.
