    “We found the kitchen to be well ...”

    We found the kitchen to be well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc, however the bedrooms were disappointing regarding equipment, at the least we expected a mirror and dressing table in both the double rooms, this was not the case, one bedroom had no mirror and a very bizarre arrangement where the bedside table was attached to the wardrobe door and the other bedroom had no dressing table or chest of drawers. ...

    We found the kitchen to be well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc, however the bedrooms were disappointing regarding equipment, at the least we expected a mirror and dressing table in both the double rooms, this was not the case, one bedroom had no mirror and a very bizarre arrangement where the bedside table was attached to the wardrobe door and the other bedroom had no dressing table or chest of drawers. One sofa in the lounge was ok but the other was extremely low, had virtually no springs in it and wasn't particularly clean. The weather was good whilst we were there however the garden furniture was still stored in the summer house and even though you are invited to use it there were so many cobwebs and so much dust we gave up. The shower hose in the large bathroom also could do with a thorough clean. Ambleside is set in a lovely position, and we had a great holiday but overall it just feels a little unloved and needs a bit of care and attention.
