We are looking forward to our next stay! Reviewed by Martin4.7★Aug 2023 "Superb cottage in a lovely location, love the river and space around, views are stunning from the top of the drive and its just a few minutes from Windermere." Will stay here again if we ‘do the lakes’ again. Reviewed by Matthew5.0★Jul 2023 "Beautiful house and location, peaceful, very comfortable, clean." Met the sheep farmer who keeps a herd in the grounds. V informative. Probably don’t bother bringing your fishing gear as he hadn’t seen any fish in the river for some years now. Didn’t stop me having a cast though! Reviewed by Arnie4.7★Jul 2023 "If there was a compost bin we would have used it." beautiful property and very well kept. glad no one was afraid of sheep, maybe some steps cut into the river bank would give safe access to the stream and stepping stones .beautiful views, and great location for accessing bus routes, and amenities. would defiantly be happy to stay again. Reviewed by Belinda5.0★Jul 2023 "Lovely house and great holiday." No negatives except it would be nice if the photos showed that there is a house that overlooks you when you're sitting on the front patio but this didn't spoil our holiday. Thank you for your comments, we are pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. We take all comments on board. We hope to welcome you again.

So very relaxing, with the open space in front of the house (and wildlife - roebuck? I guess and owls), the two sitting areas outside, the steam right beside the property. We found everything clean, spacious and very well equipped. Just a short drive fom Ampleside and the lake Windermere, close to activities and attractions. We highly recommend Riverside and also thank Lakelovers, who provided us with all necessary infos regarding our stay. Looking forward to coming back! Karin, Austria Reviewed by Karin5.0★Sep 2022 "7th time we have stayed at the same place." Enough said. Reviewed by John4.4★Jun 2022 "Amazing property in a fabulous location." The open space in front with the sheep, lambs and foxes was brilliant entertainment for the kids. The kids equally loved splashing in the stream. The location is ideal with easy access to the lake 5min drive away (where we swam and SUP’d) and Ambleside just a short drive away for cafes, restaurants and take aways. Would highly recommend!! Reviewed by Naomi5.0★May 2022 "Great family week in a beautiful house." Very comfortable, clean and well equipped for 8 people. Lots of space inside the house to accommodate a large group. Front field of sheep great to wake up too. Stream / river in full flow following a week of heavy rain so no water play or field play. The cottage has a steep driveway from the Troutbeck lane. Was slippy in heavy rain. An excellent stay. Thank you. Reviewed by Jonathan4.7★Oct 2021 "Excellent location which is close to many fabulous walks." The property is fabulous, being spacious inside and with extensive sitting areas if the weather is good. Perfect for a large group. Reviewed by Angie5.0★Oct 2021 "We all had a brilliant week, which does not mean that all was perfect." the property, while we loved it, has a very tired kitchen and really needs a proper swing bin rather then the present inadequate provision. Our party was an extended family group comprising 3 households which made it very difficult as there are just 2 sets of keys enabling the opening of the 2 sets of electric gates so that some running backwards and forwards had to take place in the event that we all left separately ( the 1'st gates are some distance from the property ). As there is only 1 shower and all 8 of us would rather shower than bath there were some logistical problems. Having said that we all agreed that we would book this property again without hesitation. The lounge / living / dining areas are super and the aspect wonderful. Reviewed by Douglas4.7★Aug 2021 "The family really enjoyed our second trip to Riverside it is just as beautiful as we remembered." It provided us with luxury accommodation and the most relaxing setting you could wish for by the lovely river. It has everything you need to ensure you have a fabulous holiday and will leave you with many happy memories. Reviewed by Raymond5.0★Jul 2021 "Riverside provided us with first class accommodation and a wonderful idyllic location." It was beautifully equipped to a very high standard and the expansive grounds and outdoor spaces were perfect for both adults and children alike. Everyone agreed it was somewhere we would all love to return to. Mrs DunlopJun 2019 "The house was in the most amazing setting and central to any activities." It was spacious, clean, very well equipped.. just perfect Mrs MottMay 2019 "I can't think of any improvements but just to say the property met our needs and exceeded expectations." For a party of seven adults and a toddler the layout of the property worked brilliantly as well as being very conveniently located. Loved the field of sheep at the end of the drive!

A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life.
