    “Nice home. Large living area and well though out area for boots and coats.”

    Some mold around the back door. Could do with 2 parking permits as we were 2 couples. Quite a lot of road noise in front bedroom. ...

    Some mold around the back door. Could do with 2 parking permits as we were 2 couples. Quite a lot of road noise in front bedroom. The double bed needs replacing, extremely uncomfortable and creaking. Mattress was far too soft, kept rolling into middle of bed. A little disappointed by the cottage, mostly due to the bed, wouldn't stay here again due to it. Re the company- Tried to contact the office on Saturday, the 1st day of our stay, multiple times - the phone did not ring on either number and no way to leave a message. No where on your website does it say office opening hours so we had no way of knowing what time we could get the parking permit.

About the location


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.
