About Mr and Mrs P Taylor

We are a retired couple who enjoy walking in the Lake District. Whilst we are not lucky enough to live in the Lake District, our cleaner lives in Ambleside and has looked after a number of the flats in the complex for many years.

Mr and Mrs P Taylor purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mr and Mrs P Taylor chose Skelwith Bridge

We fell in love with both the flat, the estate and the surrounding hills. You really can leave the car in the car park and just walk for hours from the estate in any direction. And for children, the Leisure building is a great way to burn off energy in the pool or playing table tennis.

Cozy, well equipped, brill location

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is very fair. Communication from owners was better than we have experienced before in other rentals. More than adequate. We would be very keen to return

Such a lovely cozy apartment, we really loved it and such fantastic surroundings. We will return!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this apartment it was perfect for me, my husband and two teenage children. It was in such a fantastic setting and so quiet we could sleep very well. It was very clean and had lovely touches like milk and biscuits on arrival! We could go on walks from our doorstep which was fantastic we really didn't use the car! And having a pub only 10 mins walk away was great as I didn't have to cook every night. Over all it was a very lovely week in a beautiful place. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind remarks. We agree that the Talbot is a good place to eat. Taking a torch is a good idea as it is a dark walk back. Paul and Sue

Spot on.

  • 4 of 5

Sheltered balcony suited my sun shy friend, though I would have prefered the mature trees to be slightly trimmed to allow in full sun. Excellent welcome message, first time I've had to count speed bumps coming in, but the car park was very close and big enough for our estate car. The food in the pub kept us going nicely as did Chester's, though neither of us ran up the hill. 25% was a bit steep when I was there for the Brathay Marathon, though walking to and from Brathay Hall on either side of that stopped my legs being too stiff the next day. Did spot one red squirrel, which was very camera shy. Lovely area, lovely apartment, and lovely biscuits.

Cottage in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was amazing. It had everything you need. Very clean and so welcoming.

A home away from home. Could not have been better in any way. A clear manual to guide you through any questions. Thank you for it all, even the packet of biscuits.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our days in this lovely apartment tucked away in lush greenery. Although fairly small it had everything we needed and a very good base for exploring the Lake District.

A great flat, v well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent for walking around grassmere, Ambleside, the langdales etc. Except for a trip to the supermarket we left the car at the flat and did all our outings on foot. Lovely part of the world, we’ll be back next year!
