The house's location really helped to make our stay in the lakes extra special. It is only a short walk to Windermere and an even shorter walk to Bowness. The house is incredibly cosy and has everything you will need. We will definitely be back.

The apartment is upstairs with a great views over the fells, it is roomy,comfortable and very well equipped there was nothing at all we missed. It is only 5 minutes uphill from all Pubs and restaurants that Ambleside has to offer so that is great too. Highly recommended.

Everything is high quality clean warm and asthetically pleasing . The beds are comfy the kitchen a joy to cook in the open plan lounge is realy nice to relax in after a day of long walks and spectacular views . Absolutely loved it .also great bookshelf of Lake District guidebooks, maps and literature . Great tv. And sound system that has jack so you can play own music through phone or tablet . The parking is tight, just because it's difficult to turn in with a big car . But we did manage it for packing and there is Some free on street parking....just a short walk away at this time of year.
