    “Sixth visit to property so I know the place and my very high expectations were met.”

    ...

    One thing worth mentioning I feel..... It’s a big house and there could be multiple occupancy with people wanting to get up at different times. This is impossible. Because: There is ZERO sound insulation. The first person up in the morning walking about the kitchen in this upside down house sounds like a heard of wildebeest stampeding across the plain. Everything is completely audible downstairs. Quiet conversations heard word for word. Moving a chair in the kitchen sounds like thunder. The kettle sounds like a jet engine. No chance of sleep if dishwasher on. We all get up at roughly same time but if one person goes for an early cuppa the whole house is awake. I will definitely rebook, (already have!! - twice!!) Love the place apart from this single issue. Can’t think of an easy solution but thought I wd give you the feedback. Thank you

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.
