  • “The accommodation was fine, our only comments would be to say that there was no WiFi available during our stay.”

    I hunted high and low for the Hub to reboot it, but couldn't find it anywhere. Also we thought the utensils were not up to 4 star rating, minor observation but worth noting as they should be updated. Finally, just as other tenants have mentioned the parking is a problem, especially for us as we have a large family saloon. Luckily the space next to ours was empty so we had room to reverse out.... Just. We've stayed in this area of Ambleside a few times before so we understand the difficulties ...

The property

When owners take great care with planning and refurbishment we know that our holidaymakers will be really pleased with their choice....and Top Notch will surely fit the bill for any clients looking for a village centre base. Convenient at any time of the year and first built in the 1980s, the interior has been brought up to date and is carefully planned to make the most of the available space. The property sits in an elevated location overlooking the rooftops and down into the village with panoramic views to Loughrigg Fell and to the Fairfield Horseshoe - you can watch the world go by from the balcony whilst planning your next busy day. Top Notch is one of a small number of privately owned apartments close to the centre of Ambleside and handy for all amenities. A stroll down into the village will bring you to a wealth of restaurants, local shops with excellent produce, an award-winning cinema and much more, whilst Lake Windermere is only ten minutes away on foot for lake cruises, boat hire and lake shore picnics. Many walks can be done 'from the door' including the climbs up Wansfell, Loughrigg and Todd Crag, whilst easier valley rambles would take you to Rydal and beyond to Grasmere by various routes. Accommodation: Entrance is via a wide glass sun porch with ample room for leaving outdoor gear, a boot rack and table with two chairs. Step into the fitted galley kitchen which in turn leads through to the light and sunny sitting/dining room with full height patio door opening on to the south-west facing balcony (wall mounted flat screen TV with HD receiver and disc recorder, DVD, gas fire). A small inner hallway off the lounge accesses the newly fitted bathroom - larger than average with electric shower over the bath, basin and wc. A half-flight of stairs accesses the two bedrooms - one double with king-size bed and one twin - both rooms have a range of built-in furniture offering plenty of storage for your personal items. Furnishings throughout are smart and comfortable and the apartment has a bright holiday feel with views to the south and west. Outside: Parking for one small car. Pedestrian exit via a number of steps takes you down to the shops and restaurants approx 100 yards. Walk to Lake Windermere. Note: Only room for a cot if the twin room is not being used.

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.
