“Ideal location,comfortable and homely cottage.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The cottage was comfortable,warm and well equipped. There is a log fire,washing machine and the kitchen had everything you could need and a good standard of cleanliness throughout. Based within 5 minutes walking distance of Ambleside yet quiet and peaceful with good views from the front. A plethora of walks available in the surrounding area without using the car. Plenty of places to visit close by with the car or on buses in season. Ambleside itself has good shops and a good variety of restaurants,cafe`s and pubs.

“Great location, cosy and warm cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

person found this review helpful

Well, we left this cottage with a very warm feelings. Everything was good. Location is fantastic - just 3 minuted walk from Ambleside bus station. By the way, for those who is planning to travel by public transport, there is a direct National Express bus from London (via Birmingham and Preston) to Ambleside. Journey takes about 7 hours but there are several breakes and fantastic landscapes, so I can't say we were tired. Another important point is that Ambleside has 3 supermarkets: Tesco, Co-operative and Spar. All of them 5 minutes walk from the cottage. We found restaurants here quite expensive (in Bowness prices were about 30% less...) but we enjoyed cooking in the evnings - kitchen is very well equipped and fireplace is fantastic! What else? Shower is very good, water is hot, heating work properly. Minor minus is that there is no wi-fi and no TV in the bedroom but I would definitely recommend this place! A few words about the most interesting activities there: you can take a boat tour (about 9pounds per person), they take you to the opposite side of Windermere, and you can make a nice 4 miles walking route along the rural side of the lake. This was actually very nice, we passed through a Castle, lake coast and woodland. Then another boat take you to Bowness and finally to Ambleside. You can spend a whole day on this route. Another nice trip is to take bus to Kewick, spend some time there and then you can take a round-trip by bus 77 (almost 2 hours). This is extreme tour! Try this and you will understand what I mean ))) I hope this information was helpful. I am sorry for mistakes, English is not my first language )))

“Great little cottage in the centre of Ambleside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Cottage is compact and cosy, had all the usual features you would expect. Excellent location. Only problem would be the steepness of the stairs which all of the upstairs rooms open directly on to, but unless you have young children or are prone to sleepwalking, this is probably not a problem!

“Quaint, great location, very comfortable and in the lakes!!! Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

If you like Ambleside this is a great location. The cottage is very comfortable and very adequately fitted out. We were quite sad to leave and really hope to return again soon.
