    “Nice accommodation with very good room layout.”

    Cleanliness was pretty good but not exceptional which is slightly baffling when checkout time has been shortened and check in time extended to provide more time for a “deep” clean to be carried out during these unsettling times of the Covid epidemic. Little things such as light bulbs not working and a lack of matching cutlery/crockery is frustrating when you are paying in excess of £800 per week for the accommodation.

    Cleanliness was pretty good but not exceptional which is slightly baffling when checkout time has been shortened and check in time extended to provide more time for a “deep” clean to be carried out during these unsettling times of the Covid epidemic. Little things such as light bulbs not working and a lack of matching cutlery/crockery is frustrating when you are paying in excess of £800 per week for the accommodation. The en-suite shower was poor in terms of water flow but the shower in the second bathroom was ok. If you are a light sleeper you would struggle to sleep in the twin bedded room because of light pollution from the outside security lighting. This could be easily sorted with black out curtains. In summary little things take the gloss of this accommodation and these could be easily corrected. I would not rule out staying at Gillybeck again but I think it is overpriced, with a little bit more attention to detail it could be improved noticeably

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.
