    “We were allocated this cottage by Heart of the Lakes as our original booking with them was double booked on arrival due to an error made by the owners and not the fault of HOTL.”

    Although this was not the cottage we booked we liked the location and enjoyed our holiday despite the mishap. Our only criticism was the internal decor; this cottage needs an update, in particular the living room seating which is obviously ancient! A new couch is needed, the one there is well past it. Also some new kitchen ware, there is mismatch of bowls and mugs, many of which are chipped. A little investment in this direction may encourage us to book it again.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide additional feedback following your stay at our cottage. We have now placed an order for a new sofa which we expect to arrive shortly for the benefit of future guests. 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 zip & link bed is made as a twin should you wish to be a super king please call the call centre to arrange.
