“A real treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is my second time at Blue Hill cottage with friends and it was a super as the last visit. We quickly got settled in, getting the fire going (which is such a treat for those of us who normally live in the town). My friends agreed that the cottage has everything you could need, including wifi, which is essential for me. My friends were also impressed with the location, (particularly the ease with which you can get both into town and to the steamer terminal). We slept like logs in the comfy beds. We will be back!

“Quaint little blue stone cottage”

We stayed at Blue Hill Cottage for 4 nights as a family of 4. The owner Jenny did tell us that it was better suited for 2 people but we managed with 4 people as there are 2 bedrooms upstairs.
The stairs are quite steep and you have to be careful to negotiate going to the bathroom because of the unevenness of the stairs but having said that we had a super time in Ambleside. The cottage is within walking distance from the village of Ambleside a huge plus with parking problems in all villages in the Lakes District. There is an open fire which we used every night as it was cold while we were there. It is a cosy cottage to spend a week in the beautiful Lakes District.

“Everything you need for a cosy getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

A small terraced cottage in a convenient location, with all the things you'd need for a short break. Ideal for a couple, but there is a second bedroom too. We enjoyed the fire during the windy weekend we were there.
