  • "Unfortunately I messaged before we started the holiday to ask for there to be a check on the cleanliness of the property as we had seen some negative comments."

    I had no reply. The were several aspects that we needed to clean ourselves before using items in the kitchen including the cutlery draw, washing machine, utensils and hoover was full and needed emptying. I have photos of you are interested in sharing with the owner. We really liked the property and would be happy to stay again. Shame about the above.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have forwarded you comments onto the housekeeping team. Unfortunately, as we were not made aware of these problems on your arrival we could not send anyone to resolve them for you. We are glad that you did enjoy the property and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Lakelovers Owner Team Property Owner

  • "Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the edge of Ambleside with ample parking, this is a great property for a multi generational family holiday although front step is quite large for the less mobile considering its a bungalow."

    Good open living area, very spacious and underfloor heating is very warm, bedrooms are a little cooler. 5 bathrooms is a big bonus and property very comfortable. Disappointed with the cleanliness, had to hoover inches of dust under beds on arrival. Areas that look a little tired but nothing that would deter us from returning again

    Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. We are sorry to hear about all the issues you encountered at the cottage, unfortunately we weren't aware of any of the issues you had as we could have resolved them to make your stay more comfortable. We always advise customers to enquire about property suitability prior to booking. We are glad that these issues wouldn't deter you from future bookings and hope we can prove to you a better standard in the future. Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Great holiday home."

    We did go to the office to inform that the heating did not seem to be working correctly. Someone came out to look and they thought they had it sorted but no. The heating would come on at around 4 a.m. but was not on during the evening. Had many holiday home with Sykes and before we have always had washing up liquid etc left for our use but none this time. As I said at the start - great holiday home

    A couple of small issues arose. The cot mattress was not with cot and we had to locate it in the store cupboard and a second set of keys would have been useful. Overall, easy to run, comfortable and a good position just outside the main village

    The location was perfect for a Family getaway with our Mum who has trouble getting about. And she loved everything about it too which is quite unusual!!

    What great feedback, thank you so much. We are so glad that you all, especially your Mum, enjoyed your stay. We hope we can welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    I never found how to do that Once sorted we had a delightful stay

    A short walk into the village and amenities. Great space both inside and out,all required facilities and utensils. A modern design throughout. Only issues windows needed a good clean,no games or books for children also bin emptied Wednesday not Thursday as mentioned in book. Would I book this again yes.

  • "Living space is lovely but the remainder of the property is in need of some redecoration and updating."

    The location is brilliant for exploring and is probably what warrants the high rental price because the standard of the property itself does not in our view. . We were disappointed we had no control over the central heating, but on our last day after maintenance came we were able to establish that ALL the heating controls needed their batteries replacing. Perhaps better routine checks on equipment should be carried out if things like this are happening. Heart of the Lakes staff were very responsive to our contacts and a stuck sink plug was resolved within 24 hours. All in all, we enjoyed our stay but we would not book this property again as we did not feel it was value for money as regards the property itself.

  • "Having stayed in this property last year it was noticeable that the property was overall less clean and some furniture and appliances appeared in need of a deep clean and refresh."

    Some specifics, The bedding in the room I used although clean was stained in two places and that was disappointing and not the standard I expected The sink in the kitchen had no plug and before it could be used that and a bowl in a cupboard were so dirty they had to be bleached in order to wash things. the top oven in the cooker was not clean and the work tops and back to hob were greasy. The dishwasher and washing machine needed deep cleaning. I had to deal with the filter on the dishwasher and clean the mold from the front of the washing machine door which stained the first set of childs washing that I did. It looked like the main floors had only been swept over and not been properly cleaned for some time which was noticeable as we took a toddler with us I appreciate it was not your responsibility but unfortunately the neighbour to the right side of the property had a dog which they let out every evening from 7 till after 10 pm which barked non stop all evening every evening and at other times as well which made using the back garden unpleasant and kept the child in the family awake. In view of the above this is not a property we will return to.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
