Lynne Gilhome purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Lynne Gilhome chose Ambleside
We visited the Lakes for many years pre-children and fell in love with the area. After searching for the ideal property for us we found Fellview. Our children love going and exploring the fells. We often take our parents or friends with us and the accommodation is perfect for that especially having en-suite bathrooms! We find Ambleside a fantastic place, friendly, great restaurants, pubs, lots for children of all ages to do and all from the doorstep. We love to visit and loathe to leave!
What makes this Apartment unique
We find the convenience of Fellview fantastic, within 200m. we have a Bakers, Newsagents, park with childrens area, Chinese, Italian, Thai and Indian Restaurants, several pubs, Cinema, Shops galore, Fish and Chip shops, Pizza takeaway, Tesco, Co-op, Spar. We love the locality and the views. It is great that we do not have to drive after we arrive but all of the Lake distict is easily accessible from Fellview.

A lovely break
We really enjoyed our short break and wished we had booked for longer. The property was excellent. Very comfortable with everything you could possibly need provided. It is also very well situated for the many, varied pubs and restaurants in Ambleside.
Perfect location for a three generational trip.
Perfect location and visit.
Everything great for us. All amenities are within a very short walk.
Thank you for your review. Glad you had a lovely stay and everything worked out for you.
Meeting of old friends
Great value accommodation which is ideally placed for the town.
Comfortable, well-equipped and very clean Ambleside base.
We visited with a dear friend. She's in her 80s, and the stairs up to the first floor (the main floor of the apartment) were a bit of a challenge for her, but once up she was delighted to have a lovely ensuite room on that level. Being up a level from the road made it very quiet. The kitchen is very well equipped and the living room very comfortable. The ensuite master upstairs was perfect. We were pleased that everything was so clean. The description which mentions that towels are not provided is out of date. They ARE provided -which was important to us since we traveled from the US. The location is perfect for exploring Ambleside on foot, but out of the hustle and bustle. Off-site parking is a bit of a walk, but was not a problem for us. Unfortunately, living in the US, we probably won't be able to get back, but if we could, we would!
Thank you for your review. We are really pleased you had a great time and it all worked out for you. We have updated that information about the towels now. Fellview is perfectly situated for being in central Ambleside yet feels away from it all. Thank you again and hope you can, one day, visit us again.
