I spent a week in one of the one-bedroom apartments at the Kirkstone Foot with my dog recently. The location is great, very conveniently located just a short walk away from the centre of Ambleside, but in a quiet peaceful position. The private parking on the premises is a real bonus for Ambleside. Although fairly small, I found the apartment... More

Following a lovely welcome from Steph, we were delighted when she led us to our apartment. It was super clean and cozy with all the facilities we required for our short stay. The apartment formed part of a lovely character old house which was nice and private. There was free WiFi, a balcony with access through patio doors, table and... More

Have visited Kirkstone Foot over the last 10 years, and the quality of the accommodation is always very good, but its even better since the new Manager took over. Glad to see a revised web site, as the old site didn't do the place justice. Clutter free apartments but with all the essentials for a self catering break. And lovely... More

We have stayed in these cottages several times over the years, typically around New Year, with friends. This year we had three cottages, to start with and then two more, when joined by children and their partners. The cottages are excellently appointed, with well equipped kitchens (including microwave and dishwasher), plus TV and access to Wifi. The bathroom has good... More

Stayed in Yewdale for 3 nights and had a lovely stay. Location is ideal just minutes from centre of Ambleside. Owner Steph is very helpful. Apartment very comfortable and cosy and lovely to return to after a days walk. Would definitely return.

Enjoyed our stay in 'Orchid' so much last year that we immediately re-booked for October 2014. 'Orchid' is an ideal place to stay. Well equipped, clean and with lovely views to the hills from the large patio. It is absolutely ideal for us as a place to relax. It is a pleasure to return, after walking and sight-seeing, to such...

The apartment we had was very good, nicely equipped offering every thing you need. You could change the towels every couple of days (a nice touch) we are looking forward to returning. If there was one very small issue its that you can hear people walking upstairs but that is only an occasional problem. Some apartments allow dogs which is... More

Another wonderful trip to Ambleside, made all the more special by staying once again in these fab apartments. We have been staying at Kirkstone Foot apartments for over 10 years and stayed in many of the apartments and they never fail to please. Many choices of apartment are available, including those that allow dogs. We stayed in Gardenside this time.... More

Seriously re-consider if you want a good welcome, and good standard of service and accommodation for the price. Location is about the only positive; as long as weather is good. If you're stuck inside, it's not a good prospect!
