The views from the flat are stunning and it is very close to all the main facilities in Ambleside. There are plenty of local walks for all ages and weather conditions. It is the second successive year that we have stayed there and we hope to return again next year.

The property was clean and comfortable and is well situated for a short walk to the shops, restaurants and the lake as well stunning walks with the dog. Georgeene was very helpful and responded to enquiries promptly. The beautiful Christmas tree was a lovely festive bonus!
