It is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean,with fresh decor, a cosy yet bright interior, and was very well equipped, including the provision a useful drying room. There are lovely views from the house over Ambleside and the surrounding hills. Ambleside itself is a good location, with plenty of restaurants and good bus routes to other Lake District main towns, with intermediate stops for walkers making linear walks a real possibility and certainly being a good base if you are without a car as we were.
