    “We have been visiting Romney Grange for many years and think that no.”

    12 is one of the best. We love the layout of the apartment and the patio area is a real delight. Our only regret is that the bath was replaced by a shower. There's nothing like a good soak following a long walk. ...

    12 is one of the best. We love the layout of the apartment and the patio area is a real delight. Our only regret is that the bath was replaced by a shower. There's nothing like a good soak following a long walk. In previous years we have not used the kitchen very much, but because of the pandemic we bought most of our food with us. This is probably the experience of many recent visitors The kitchen is very well equipped and works very well. The only draw back is the fridge freezer. It has been well used and needs to be defrosted, but I appreciate that with the tight turnover of bookings this is difficult to do, but I hope the owners might consider replacing it when they have the opportunity. Apart from this detail the apartment meets all our needs and we will return.

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.
