    “Lovely location and generally well appointed cottage.”

    Good kitchen and dining area, and lovely large lounge (though a squeeze for 6). However, dishwasher was clearly not cleaning when we arrived, so we had to clear out all the filters to get it working properly (not a nice job when not done for so long), there is relatively limited larger glass wear and crockery (OK for 4, would not be for 6), and the inability to open the back door fully was tricky when coming in with wet walking gear.

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.

Please Note: This property takes a £250 refundable Good Housekeeping Bond

We are very conscious of the environmental impact and cost of heating at Brunt How. Heating is set at 20 for morning and evening, 18 during the day and 16 overnight. Whilst this is controlled remotely by the owner / Heart of the Lakes, guests can adjust the temperature using a pad on the wall. This lasts an hour, so for longer changes contact HOTL. The log burner in the sitting room makes this room very cosy.
If extensive increase is required to these temperatures or the property is heated above 21, an additional charge will be made of £30 per day. (Applicable November to March inclusive)
The heating system records the house temperature and temperature set. Please note that tampering with the system will result in forfeit of deposit.
