    “We booked this property from Wednesday the 29th of December 2021 until Sunday the 2nd of January 2022.”

    We had no hot water or heating upstairs in the cottage for the length of our stay. This was a known problem before we arrived but we were not made aware of this. Heating engineers attended but could not resolve the issue so by new year's eve we were told to put up with it or go home. I have raised a complaint but the owner has not bothered to reply yet. We went home a day early because it was pretty miserable.

    Thank you for your feedback. Heart of the Lakes look after this property on behalf of the owner. As we manage the property, the owner was not fully aware of the situation regarding the heating and hot water. Whilst Heart of the Lakes were aware of an ongoing issue prior to your stay, we had been informed by the heating engineer that it was repairable, unfortunately this was not the case. We sincerely apologise for the disruption that this has caused. I can see from our records that the Customer Service Team have recently been in touch with you with an offer of compensation which has been accepted. Property Owner

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.
