What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Ambleside To Rent.

Paul - verified booking

"The cottage was clean & tidy on our arrival. However, the cottage could do with some refurbishment and I for one would be prepared to pay more for that privilege. The bathroom was a huge waste of valuable bedroom space and could be made en-suite very easily. The shower over the bath could disappear and a proper shower cubicle could easily fit in the bathroom. The furniture in all the bedrooms was basic and in need of renewal.Not sure what you could do about it but the stairs to the top floor were difficult and dangerous. There is a need for a downstairs W.C. The property is meant for 7 people so this is not an unreasonable expectation. Lounge was adequate but the kitchen could do with a total refurbishment. The cooker top does its own thing (being electric) and the oven is untameable. I have got used to much better quality accommodation and was disappointed with this cottage. Myself and my family will not be back here until it has been refurbished. I'm sorry if this sounds offensive, - it is not meant to be but I believe that it is better to be honest. A lick of more inviting colour on the outside window and door frames would do much to lift the kerb appeal. The photographs on line flatter the property. Location is good and this would encourage a return stay if/when the property is refurbished. Housekeeping could be more diligent as we found three broken glasses hidden in the utility room - on a window ledge which is below counter height, beneath pile of tea towels. We were lucky not to injure ourselves on these. Fortunately, the beauty of the area was undiminished by the sub standard accomodation."

"Very nice maisonette apartment. Ideal central base for our walks up The Old Man of Coniston, the Fairfield Horseshoe and Wansfell Pike. Slightly confused by the lack of hot water initially until following a quick phone call, we established that it wasn't a combination boiler and we had to wait 30 mins for the water to heat-up (having set the water to continuous).There were four of us in the accommodation, and there was plenty of room, although the galley style kitchen would get cramped with more than one person involved in cooking.It was particularly warm in June, and as a result we had the bedroom windows open of an evening. However being a town centre location meant that there was significant traffic noise.The loo in the triple room en-suite didn't always flush. With experience we realised it took significant time for the cistern to fill sufficiently. And the instructions for the Ambleside FC car park were a bit vague, resulting in two parking tickets for the weekend (£25 if paid within 14 days). For reference, on reaching the Miller Road car park, look for an unmade/unpaved track on the right, through an open gate upon which there is a sign that says 'Ambleside FC campsite'. We think that is where we should have parked. Other than that an ideal location to explore the area."

"West View and Ambleside was a good choice as a base for our holiday in the Lake District. The property is well kept, has everything you need and is presented really well. Ambleside has almost everything you need with exception of a large supermarket. This isn't much of a problem as Windermere (15 minutes drive) has a Booths supermarket or you can shop online and have it delivered the day you arrive as we did.Bus routes to most locations and connections in the Lake District are just a 2 minute walk up the road which is really handy for the days you don't want to use the car. You also have walks that start from Ambleside or very close by which was also useful.Only negative was the narrow access to parking. Not a problem as such if you know the size of your car and once you've figured out angles for reversing out of the space it's not a problem, just a word of warning!"

"Everything was good but the we had two gripes about instructions. The instructions to find the cottage, while being technically accurate, were somewhat buried in general information. In particular it would be helpful if you highlighted the house NUMBER rather than the name. We arrived in the dark without a torch and searched a long time for the name before noticing the address included the number.Secondly we were both totally confused by instructions for disposing of rubbish which I think are stuck to the fridge door. The wording is ambiguous and we both interpreted them incorrectly as it turned out. You should emphasise that the Bin Store is in a different building 200 yards up the hill. We read the words as saying it was just outside the front door! No wonder you have a supplementary notice saying dont leave it outside the door!"

Cath - verified booking

"A couple of things have sprung to mind after my recent stay. I came home and re-read the description, it would have been better to have been explicit and state this was an ground floor apartment rather than the unwritten implication that this was a cottage. As a result I would have expected some noise from the apartment above, which was intrusive at times. In addition, the back garden was rather a large patio area. Although there is a stream at the bottom of the garden it is not visible as it is down a steep bank which is fenced off. Aside from these two small grumbles. We had fantastic weather, and the property is in a great position for the endless walks around Ambleside. The propert is extremely well kept and clean, it is well equipped. Parking for two cars was not a problem. Overall we had a fab time."
