Very comfortable and quiet yet located only a short walk from the facilities in Ambleside. The only downside is the parking space which is only suitable for a small car and whilst there is an option of a car park pass for the municipal car park in the town that is not ideal. Other than that a very good spot

Only a few minutes walk from the heart of Ambleside, but be warned it is uphill. Not far from The Golden Rule, one of the best pubs in Ambleside. Easy to get to most of the Lake District in an hour or so, good public transport as well. Reccommend the bus ride to Keswick sat on the top deck so you can see much more.

The cottage was so cosy & felt like home as soon as we walked through the door! The parking space is small but it didnt matter we had to park the car in the main car park, it was just trying to get a space on a bank holiday which was tricky!

Great for solo or couple wanting a central base for a walking holiday. Within walking distance of all shops and restaurants in ambleside and walkable to Windermere too. Parking a little tight for a larger than average car.
