We have enjoyed our second stay at Kirkstone Foot, both breaks being in the Bassenthwaite apartment. Having holidayed in the Ambleside area over the past thirty years, we have discovered a real treasure here. Location, comfort, cleanliness and service can not be faulted. We will definitely be back!

The apartments have a real home from home feel to them – I can be one of the coldest people on the planet but the... More

We stayed in the Langdale apartment at Kirkstone Foot in January this year. It was a lovely, clean apartment with a big four poster bed, making it great for a couples retreat and even benefitted from a spacious outdoor terrace with gorgeous views. It was located a stones throw away from the centre of Ambleside making it a perfect location.... More

these apartments are amazing. A quick 3 min walk down the hill and your in Ambleside, prime location. So far we've stayed here twice, both times wonderful, a great home from home and lovely amenities. The rest of the family also love it and also rent these apartments. Heard about these originally from word of mouth, and have to say... More

We stayed in the 'orchid apartment' and could not fault it. Very clean, well equipped and an ideal location. The weather was not good, but there was so much to do locally, or short drives away, that it never dampened our spirits.We would like to return in the summer and explore more of this stunning part of the country. Would... More

.......and yet another return visit for us and I can only reiterate what we have stated before. Kirkstone Foot perfectly suits the requirements that we seek as being key to ensuring that our trip to the Lake District is always so enjoyable especially in terms of where we stay; -namely comfort, privacy, a good nights sleep, convenience to the village...

After reading so many 5 star reviews of this place, we were expecting so much more than we got. Perhaps the other rooms (can't really call it an apartment, more like a motel room with a full kitchen) are more recently renovated and have privacy, but we didn't get either in the Duddon. The kitchen is the only part which... More

Just got back from a second stay in the KF complex. We stayed two years ago in Bassenthwaite, which we gave a good review, This time around we stayed in Kentmere and it was excellent, accessed by its own staircase on the first floor of the Coach House- bright and airy and immaculately clean. We'll definitely be staying here on... More
