5/5 Excellent

Oct half term in Lakes
Very comfortable and warm property. Just what we needed during a wet and windy Oct half term. Cosy living/dining room with wonderful views from bay window onto fells. Very convenient location near central Ambleside. Kitchen was small but well kitted out. Couple of points to note: Not much storage space throughout for kitchen food or clothes in bedrooms and parking was tricky in the road a couple of times but can always park within 2 mins walk . We’d definitely come again.

4/5 Good

Fantastic location to explore the lakes and easy walk into Ambleside
Fantastic location

5/5 Excellent

Great location with a beautiful view
Great much needed getaway in a beautiful spot. Would definitely stay again. Close enough to the centre of Ambleside whilst being quiet enough to relax.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely break
We had a lovely stay at this property which is very close to the town centre but also good for walks from the door eg wansfell pike, baystones... also easily walkable to Windermere for open water swimming adventures. The house was clean and basic but comfortable and really had everything we needed. The boys appreciated the DVDs and board games provided. The stairs are steep and may not be appropriate for very young children or people with mobility issues but generally fine. Thanks, we hope to be back. (Parking’s a pain but you can’t have everything!!)

5/5 Excellent

Great location and lovely holiday cottage
Fantastic location, and incredible views. My family and I had a wonderful stay here and would stay here again. Easily walkable into Ambleside, to Waterhead (where we hired kayaks and SUPs from Windermere Canoe and Kayak - great service), and fab walking on the doorstep. The kids loved going up to Todd Crag on the first morning and looking back at the house across the valley, and we swam in the lake from Borrans Park at Waterhead. Outstanding pizza takeaway place 2 mins walk away: The Sourdough Pizza Co on Old Lake Road. Tasty, creative ingredients. To put some of the other reviews in context: Parking: I think we visited on possibly one of the busiest weeks of the year in the Lakes. No, there isn't an allocated space, but only once did we have to park on a different street. Remember that this is a house a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. WIFI: It wasn't an issue at all. 36mbps download, 9mbps upstream was the Speedtest result I got. Washing machine: no, there isn't a washing machine, but bear in mind it's a really small kitchen (more room for the lounge though!), and has a dishwasher, which we found more useful. Just bring more clothes for your stay. Nobody wants to do washing while they're on holiday anyway! Considering how holiday lettings owners have so much on their plate right now with COVID extra cleaning, limited access to staff etc, the check-in process went well and the house was well-cleaned and safe for us. In fact, everywhere we went in the Lakes, the tourism sector was absolutely on its game and we felt really safe there. Linda had communicated that we'd need to check in later, but did so in a friendly way and explained everything well. We had a couple of questions during the week, but she was very responsive. Overall, a really good experience.
