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."

"S79602 is a beautiful house with character and charm. The house boasts original oak and flagstone flooring, open fire, vintage wallpaper and original hand carved farmhouse kitchen cabinet (dated 1600s). Room sizes are generous, the views and superb over the valley and deer were spotted in the garden. We stayed over Easter (4 adults 2 children) and were delighted with the property, as National Trust members we felt like we were staying in our own private NT house! During cold periods (we had snow) the house was a little cold downstairs (bear in mind it is 350+ years old) but the central heating did well (and can be boosted if necessary). We were always warm upstairs and the fire made the living room cosy in the evenings. Just remember slippers as the flagstone floors downstairs were a little cold underfoot (if you are coming in the colder months). There is a lovely quaint tearoom at the top of the drive and a National Trust house in walking distance. Ambleside is a short drive so you won’t beat location for exploring the Lake District (parking for Helvellyn 25 mins drive at Glenridding)."

Ellie - verified booking

"Absolutely fantastic house. Spotlessly clean, super modern and renovated to a really high standard. Very cosy (we only needed the heating on downstairs and the whole house stayed warm). Right in the centre of Ambleside but not aware of noise from traffic either during the day or at night. Bathrooms were especially lovely. Car park right across the street and permits provided. Front entrance up steps but back entrance up a slope so could get the pram in and out easily. Loads of equipment provided for cooking. Only tiny downside was no downstairs loo (but that’s just because we are used to one and a bit lazy!) and internet was a little bit intermittent. Otherwise no faults at all."

Angela - verified booking

"Beautiful cottage, clean and comfortable with absolutely everything we needed. The layout with a king suite and bathroom on the top floor and 2 further bedrooms and bathroom on the middle floor meant there was ample space and the cottage was perfect for a family.The only downside was the lack of private parking. There is a free permit for 1 vehicle for a car park opposite. Additional vehicles must pay which is ok as there were always spaces at this time of year but it did make unloading a little difficult.Overall though the parking did not detract from the holiday and the cottage itself was lovely and made for a really cosy and relaxing break."

Jonathan - verified booking

"The house was extremely clean and furnished to a very high standard with lots of cutlery and crockery items. Extra chopping boards, sharp knives, large induction pans, etc all made cooking your own meals like you were in your own home. The bedrooms were spacious especially the top floor room. We also enjoyed the welcome hamper that was prepared for our arrival. We were initially concerned about traffic noise but the house was so well insulated that this was no problem whatsoever. We loved the house and Ambleside and on future visits to the UK will try and stay here again. 10/10"
