Such a lovely cottage, and perfectly located to explore the Lake District. Very comfortable, had everything that we could need, easy walking distance to the town-centre of Ambleside, however still feels away from it all. Especially enjoyed the views from the cottage and the lovely garden area. Thank you so much, would love to come back sometime! more
