Cosy, well-equipped cottage. An ideal location for the lakes for a couple + dog.

Lovely peaceful location, 1 hour walk into Ambleside, 1 hour to elterwater which is well worth a visit, a pub at the bottom of the bank 8 minutes walk down about 15 uphill back and a lovely little cafe next to the river about 10 minutes walk, its vegan but still well worth a visit home baked bread and donuts are amazing. The cottage has a nice sharRead moreed garden at the back, they provide walking guides in the drawer under the table which was a nice touch and games to play. Hide

Perfect location for a base to explore the area. A very quiet setting.

Would definitely go back again. The lodge had everything you could want like a home from home. It was great waking up every morning with all the wildlife. Deers grazing right outside red squirrels running around. Also it was quite close to the local village just a 2 mile drive into the quaint village of Ambleside.

Reviewed by Yvonne, 27th October 2018

The apartment was fairly comfortable and very clean. The owners were very helpful with directions - can be difficult to find in the dark. The apartment has amazing views and is ideally situated to access the Lakes. It was warm and fairly well equipped, but the sofa can be uncomfortable if resting for a long time. The bed would also benefit from a bRead moreigger quilt and the bedroom from greater ventilation. Overall a really pleasant place to use as a base when staying in the Lakes Hide
