  • “We had a lovely stay at Friends Cottage.”

    It was clean and cosy, and a great location. We did find the mattresses very soft, and as such the bed sheets slid off every night. Firmer mattresses would be be ideal, or a fitted sheet to keep it in place. The key safe was also tricky to close and would benefit from an upgrade. Otherwise, would highly recommend. Thank you

    Response from owner: Many thanks for your feedback about the bedding. This is supplied by a separate linen company and I'm afraid that fitted undersheets aren't an option. However, Heart of the Lakes have kindly offered to fit a kingsize undersheet on the double bed (and a double-size undersheet on the single bed), so these are more secure. Owner relations

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.

Please note: The ground floor has some internal steps, and one section of the staircase is slightly steeper and narrower.
