    “We’ve just returned from a weeks stay at Heatherley.”


    The property is a credit to the owners. It’s in a prime position, just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. The photos do not do this house justice, as we found it to be very clean, spacious and extremely well equipped with good quality furnishings and 4 excellent bedrooms and bathrooms, which suited our family of 6 perfectly. The kitchen had every utensil you needed for a very comfortable week long stay, with plenty of pans, plates, cups and glasses etc. A utility room housed a washer and dryer which was perfect for washing our walking gear throughout the week. Each bedroom had a comfortable bed, large tv, led lit mirrors in the bathroom and plenty of storage. Having a bathroom to service each bedroom was a bonus we don’t usually find in a lot of holiday cottages. Two parking permits worked perfectly for us all, and we didn’t have any problems finding a space either outside or close to the property throughout our stay. We all agreed, Heatherley was one of the nicest places we have stayed in over the years, and we will certainly look to book again in the future.

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.
