Perfect in every way, location, superbly equipped kitchen, beautiful lounge , comfy sofa, jacuzzi bath, lovely bathroom, soft bed. Great place to unwind and have a short break, we took our 2 whippets ,and had a lovely time. We will go back very soon and stay for lomger.
Our stay was fantastic! The cottage was everything we wanted, so cozy and warm. The facilities were great it was a real home from home. The grounds were lovely with some improvements to the grounds being made. A five minute car trip into Ambleside made it a rural retreat with close convience to shops etc... Thank you for a wonderful stay we will return again.
We stayed here for my wife birthday and liz gave us the right instruction and found it easy, we where a little disappointed at the front off cottage as we thought in the picture was the front, plus on the Friday watching the tractors getting close to car.
But once we got into the cottage it wasn't great but nice warm soon as we put heating on bed was nice and soft and liked the spa bath even the wife like it ,lovely view to the lake.
Walked in garden and nearly tripped as step are broken and wet.
The only faults where the traffic had problems turning left also the toaster was broken .
good having free washing machine and dryer
Don't know if we will return.
Booked this romantic cottage for me and my wife's 11year anniversary. The view from the cottage are stunning with lots of wild life around and a nature trail right on the door step. The cottage inside is nicely decorated and feels like a home from home after a nice long walk it was nice to relax in the jacuzzi. At night it's realy silent and peaceful in the morning it was nice to wake up with birds tweeting. The cottage is in the right location for Ambleside town center and to jump on the boats to Windermere can not wait to book to go again Liz was very helpful with leaflets on things to do and places to eat thank you Liz for making r anniversary amazing
A beautiful little cottage which surpassed our expectations. It's modern and clean with plenty of space for a perfect couples retreat - pictures don't do it justice. No wi-fi or signal but TV had lots of choice and let's face it - get out into the spectacular lakes, come back to a gorgeous jacuzzi bath and out again for dinner in Ambleside or Windermere. What more could you want.
A lovely place to stay.
The jacuzzi bath is awesome.
The pics don't do it justice it's bigger than it looks.
I stayed at The Dove Cot for 2 nights travelling on my own and the cottage was exactly what I had expected from the pictures! Liz was extremely friendly and helpful both leading up to and throughout my stay - even arranging for the cottage to be cleaned earlier so that I could check in 3 hours before the advertised time :)
The bed was really comfortable and the jacuzzi bath was amazing after a day on the mountains. There were also lots of maps and leaflets about the local area which were very useful and helped me plan my weekend.
The only thing to maybe be aware of is that with it being a few miles from Ambleside and the pubs/restaurants and shops etc. you would need to get a taxi in the evening or drive if you wanted to go into the town as it was a little bit too far to walk in the dark around windy roads. That said, the kitchen and the whole cottage is very well equipt for cooking and a cosy night in :D and the property certainly benefitted from the peace and quiet which is exactly why I went!
Overall I would thoroughly recommend staying here and would definitely come again, perhaps in the summer.
