    “It met expectations except for not having the onstreet parking permit which was promised in the description - we did go back to the offices to ask for it but were not helped by the person there who was uninterested in the matter.”

    Also there were no garden table and chairs to sit out on as promised in the description. If the house was full - ie with 5 people rather than the 3 in our party, I don't think the sitting room furniture is big enough. We'd have liked there to be better lighting in the sitting room to read by. The kitchen diner was a good size and well-equipped and the location was great. It was warm and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide additional feedback following your stay at Acorn Cottage. It was with regret to learn that the parking permit allowing you to park on the nearby street had unfortunately been misplaced by previous visitors and we were unable to source a replacement from Cumbria County Council during your visit. Our office did offer to refund the costs of any parking tickets you had to purchase during your stay along with our apologies. It was with regret that we were unable to offer an additional permit as per your request. A replacement permit has now arrived at the office for the benefit of future guests. Outside furniture is provided in the shed at the property with instructions supplied within the cottage. Despite these issues we are pleased that you found the property to be well equipped and in a great location. We hope to welcome you back for a trouble free stay in the not too distant future.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.

Note: Logs available for purchase locally. Note: Sorry, no children under five years. Note: There is a basement flat that is occupied residentially. Note: Sloping ceilings on the second floor, please mind your head
