    “Kitchen was even smaller than imagined.”

    Not enough room for two people. Barely enough room to make a sandwich in fact.

    Not enough room for two people. Barely enough room to make a sandwich in fact. Upstairs room had no door, no good for staying with friends, and i hit my head on the ceiling every time i went up there. Location was good. Comfortable place to be. Not accurately represented in the advert in my opinion. For some people this will be an ideal base for a holiday. We found it a bit wanting.

    Thank you for your feedback. We agree this cottage is in a good location and is a very comfortable property for guests to enjoy their stay however in our opinion Sunset Cottage is shown in an accurate representation on our website. We have never had complaints regarding the size of the kitchen and find most families are able to make a great meal together at this property. The pictures do show the size of the kitchen and it is described as "neat fitting". The bedroom upstairs is described as "open" and as a country cottage, ceiling heights can be quite low. We will investigate and ask guests to be careful in the future. All of this information can be seen by guests before booking and our customer services team are available to call if there are any queries. Property Owner

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.
