My husband and I stayed at the apartment recently and cannot recommend it enough. Met by David and Mike, we were welcomed in like old friends. David left us to unpack whilst he went and made refreshments. He returned with hot cups of tea and slices of cake - very much appreciated after a long journey.
The accommodation, on two floors, is perfect for a couple with or without young children as there is a bedroom and a sofa bed. The upstairs bedroom has an en suite toilet and wash room. Downstairs is the kitchen, bathroom and living/dining room. Whilst the decor may be subjective, it is perfectly adequate, clean and tidy. There are even books ,should you wish to read, and information left by David & Mike relating to the local area.
Superb value for money.
Wythburn apartments Ambleside. We arrived for the first day of our 4 night stay over the new year period and was met by David the owner who was a very nice man.
On entering the apartment both my husband and I were very disappointed at what we saw. The lounge area was so neglected and depressing, there was nothing cosy, warm or homely, it was like going back to the 70s, nothing seemed to have been updated from the furniture, carpet, curtains, wall pictures and tacky ornaments. There was a very small TV placed on a side table in the middle of the room and a very old Xmas tree with tinsel thrown on. Although the kitchen and bathroom were modern these are not the rooms you sit in to relax.
Having stayed at the Lake district for the past 10 years over the new year period, staying in various places, all of which were warm and cosy to go back to once we had been for our walks, this was so depessing that my husband and I decided to pack up and return home. We could not bring ourselves to stay for even 1 night. I would expect due to the neglect of the property and for all the inconvenience and distress caused that David will sort a refund to compensate us.
Clean and comfortable large apartment which exceeded our expectations. The bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite toilet. The living room has a sofa bed and a tv and DVD player with a good selection of DVDs. The bathroom and kitchen are both modern and there is a dishwasher and washing machine. There is off road parking outside the apartment which is closer to the centre than the local car park! The hosts, David & Mike are fantastic and live below the apartment so are available if required and they recommended nearby's Lucy's restaurant which was brilliant.
The apartment is in a quiet road but is still less than 5 minutes walk to the centre of Ambleside which includes lots of restaurants/pubs/shops etc. and a Tesco/Co-op/Spar/Boots. Ambleside is a perfect place to explorer the lakes and you can catch the lake tours from Ambleside pier which is a picturesque 20 minutes stroll or a few minutes drive (parking at the pier is £5 all day)
We stayed here for the second time this year. Lovely, clean apartment. David was welcoming and on hand with advice, if needed. The off street parking is a bonus as a lot of places don't have this. We hope to return.
Ambleside is a great place to stay in the Lake District - buzzy, lots of places to eat and drink, great areas nearby for walking.
Wythburn Apartment is in the perfect location. Two minutes walk from the centre but really quiet and with an off-road parking space.
Plenty of space for a couple and everything you need. Owners could not be more helpful and pleasant.
