Good location for accessing shops restaurants and entertainment in Ambleside. Very comfortable cottage. We had to call the company responsible for the cottage management as the tv did not work and they were very helpful and quickly sorted the problem with the Ariel within 24 hours.

Beautiful cottage, little difficult to find but once you find it there is easy access, car parking is not far down the road and there was always a space for us. Bedroom is massive and has an extremely comfortable bed. Living room and dining area are perfect for chilling. Myself and partner spent many nights watching a film or playing cards.

Amazing location with good views of the opposite fells from terrace Close to town centre but feels nice and secluded Very comfortable, spacious cottage with good facilities Nicest cottage in Ambleside in our experience

Reviewed by Jackie, 3rd August 2019

Comfortable cottage right in the centre of Ambleside meant that we could enjoy the Lakes largely car free. Be prepared for the steps up. Could be a little noisy from the pub opposite on weekend nights.

Beautiful area with lots more beautiful places to visit. Lots of places to eat in or takeaway and cafes for your smaller snacks. Not ideal if you have walking problems as steps to property are quite steep.

The cottage is very comfortable and well furnished. There is plenty of storage space for clothes in the bedroom. The bathroom has everything that a person needs and the shower is good - although care is needed to ensure the water doesn't overspill the bath. The kitchen has everything necessary to store and prepare food and to wash clothes. We only Read moreprepared a couple of simple meals during our stay but didn't want for equipment.

Great cottage in a really central location in Ambleside. Handy as a central base for moving about the LakeDistrict. Would certainly comeback.

Great cottage for couples and ideal central Ambleside base. Hardly have to use the car. Just be wary if booking of lots of steps if not so agile upto cottage and parking across the road in car park with a permit after dropping off.

Beautiful cottage, warm, cosy, modern kitchen and bathroom - very comfy big bed! Perfect location, 2 mins into town but private and quiet. We had a wonderful time.
