This was a weekend family birthday celebration and we had a fantastic time. This cottage is in the heart of the Lake District right in the centre of Ambleside with restaurants, pubs and shops right on the doorstep. It was clean, comfortable and spacious with everything you could possibly need. There was underfloor heating in the kitchen and one of the bathrooms which was wonderful ! Parking was a fit of an issue because between us we had 3 cars but we managed. We would certainly stay here again.
Clare Cottage was all we expected and more, spacious yet cosy, comfortable beds, plenty of kitchen utensils etc for self catering, although the cottage is located in the centre of Ambleside so pubs and restaurants are easily reached. Car parking was a bit of an issue but not enough to really bother about. Had an excellent meal at The Priest Hole, definitely worth a visit. Would love to go back to Clare Cottage in the future.
Lovely comfortable cottage in the centre of Ambleside. It was a great base for exploring the Lakes with walks straight out of Ambleside so the car wasn't needed once we'd arrived. The cottage was decorated and furnished to a high standard. No problems parking in the road (one car and arrived on a Tuesday afternoon) and a bottle of Prosecco was waiting for us on arrival. What more could you wish for?!! We also had a house sign made from the workshop up the road (very reasonable indeed) so now have our own piece of Lakeland slate hanging outside our house in Surrey!
We enjoyed our stay at Clare Cottage over 5 days in September. Brilliant location central to restaurants and bars. All rooms are spacious and the living room is very cosy with the log fire. Parking out the front of the house can be difficult but not impossible. Excellent communication with the host who provided all necessary information before arriving. Would book again without hesitation.
A brilliant week here. At Clare cottage. No faults it is a lovely spacious well kept property.
The nicest weve stayed at in Ambleside .
Definatlely be coming back
The cottage is much bigger than it appears on the images, the location is perfect although parking can be a challenge however lots of easy options locally to solve that issue. It is very tastefully decorated, provides everything you could want, the owner was very efficient at dealing with any request. Right in the heart of the town with plenty of nice eateries close at hand and activities are plenty.
Our only gripe would be the dining room chairs as they legs stick out and we constantly stubbed our toes on them
Would definitely recommend and would visit again
