“Fantastic stay!!!”
Reviewed November 26, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Margaret was fantastic! My husband and I stayed for our anniversary and she had a balloon and champagne waiting on our arrival! The cottage it situated in an ideal location. Lovely and clean and had everything that we needed! Margaret was available if we had any questions (and when we locked the key in the property on the first day and needed a spare!!!) we will definitely be booking to stay in one of her properties again next year. Couldn't recommend highly enough!!

We have stayed many times at various cottages around Ambleside, but have to say that this cottage is absolutely outstanding - heads above anywhere else we have stayed. It has been beautifully decorated and kitted out, but it's the little extras which were a fabulous and personal touch.
Everything about our stay was just brilliant - thank you for arranging warm and sunny weather too!!
We're so excited to have found you - can't wait to return

“FANTASTIC!!!! 10 out of 10!”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A brilliant place to stay. Close to the town centre and a short walk to the Lakes. The property was a joy to stay in and owners Margaret and Graham could not have been any more helpful. Very accomodating. Looking forward to going back next summer

we visited the cottage for Aug bank holiday weekend, we wanted a quiet stay in the lake district with our friends, the cottage itself is beautifully done, and we were made to feel very welcome by Margaret who even went to the trouble of asking me the reason for our visit, which was my partners birthday, When we arrived Maragaret had gone to the trouble of getting a balloon, and a bottle of prosecco aswell as milk, orange juice and bread for the following morning! Little things like this just make your holiday! we were central to ambleside and only a ten minute drive from windermere! we will definitly be back!

“Great cottage”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed here for a week in August '15. Ambleside is a great central place to stay as it's only a stone's throw from my favourite place in the Lakes: the stunning Langdales, minutes from Windermere Waterhead on foot and only a short drive from Keswick.
The cottage itself is lovely: well equipped with everything you'd need, beautifully renovated and a great place to come back to after a long day's walking. Margaret, the owner, maintained regular contact and was very amenable when I wanted to change my booking.
The only downside was it took me two attempts on the one way system round Ambleside to find it!

“A gem in Ambleside”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is an absolutely wonderful cottage, the only bad part about it was having to leave and come home at the end of the weekend.

I went to Ambleside to cheer on my best friend in the Great North Swim in Windermere and stayed with 3 other ladies in the cottage. It was cosy and full of character. A stones throw from the center of Ambleside and in the other direction and very close is lake Windermere. I'm a keen walker and there are some excellent walks in this area too. Margaret and Graham, the owners, were absolutely wonderful and are always happy to help if you need them.

I can't recommend this cottage enough, it's fabulous!

Had a fantastic time at this beautiful cottage, immaculate and very welcoming- very much home from home, had everything we needed for our weekend, very central location, shops/ bars/ restaurants within walking distance. Cottage owners Margaret and Graham were great- so helpful in pointing us in the right direction of activities and places to visit. Would highly recommend this cottage and will definitely be back soon! Thanks again Margaret and Graham xx
