  • “We strongly recommend that the owner stays a few days in the apartment - as if a guest.”

    They would pick up things like: - the wifi code in the book is wrong, and so are the two that Sykes people have - there is no shaver socket in the bathroom or light over the mirror (the mirror has a power supply, but used only for a heater) - the shower does not drain properly, so the tray fills up - there is a drain smell in the bathroom, that can be fixed for a day, but then returns - the bedroom curtains need to be thicker to keep out the street light outside - the lounge blind doesn't work - the bedroom door doesn't latch - the tv has been changed but the manual has not - the microwave instructions given could easily be much better for basic operation - the kitchen could do with a towel rail - a long handle brush would be useful for daily sweeping without having to get the vacuum out - simple tiebacks on the lounge curtains would significantly improve lovely the view - the lounge chairs are quite uncomfortable. Hope this helps - the views from the bay are excellent and really make this apartment! We preferred dealing with HoL before they were Sykes.

The Lakeside Bar and restaurant is the ideal location to sit with a drink and watch the world go by conveniently only a few metres away. Just a 10 minute flat walk into Ambleside and a 4 mile drive to Windermere you can enjoy the local cuisine in any number of bars and restaurants and take advantage of the private jetty access or picnic in the bay while feeding the swans and ducks.

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.
