Snaptrip says

Little Hart Crag in Ambleside offers a convenient location with easy access to local attractions and the great outdoors. While some guests have praised the property's cleanliness and amenities, others have noted areas for improvement such as the presence of a damp odour and the need for additional cooking utensils and towels for longer stays. The proximity to a busy road has been mentioned as a concern for noise-sensitive guests.

Guests that stayed at this property said

Reviews are mixed regarding cleanliness. Some guests found the apartment to be clean, while others reported unpleasant odours, dirty carpets, and mould, indicating inconsistency in the property's upkeep.

The location is generally praised for its proximity to Ambleside and local attractions. However, the property's position on a busy road and issues with noise and flooding have been noted as drawbacks.

Guests have had varied experiences with comfort. The shower quality is praised, but issues with bedroom lighting, uncomfortable furniture, and privacy concerns due to the bedroom's location have been raised.

Facilities have received criticism for lacking essentials such as cooking utensils and a clothes horse. Maintenance issues like faulty lighting and the absence of an instruction manual for the cooker suggest room for improvement.

While one guest mentioned the lack of a welcome gift compared to other properties, this is not a consistent theme across the reviews, and as such, it is not possible to accurately score thoughtfulness based on the available information.

About this property

Little Hart Crag is an attractive ground-floor apartment resting in Ambleside, Cumbria, offering private parking and Smart TVs. Ideal for a couple or a solo traveller, the apartment is just a short walk from the centre of Ambleside, where amenities provide you with all you need for a well-deserved, self-catered break. On entering the property, an open-plan living space presents a kitchen, dining area for two, and a sitting area with a toasty electric stove. Whip up your meals in the kitchen, with a handy dishwasher to save you from the washing up, before dining at the table as you plan your excursions for the trip. From here, flick on the fire and sink into the sofa to watch a film on the Smart TV. Following a day of exploring the local area, return to the apartment and relax with a hot shower, complete with a warm towel from the rail. When sleep calls, make your way down the stairs and straight back up another set to find a plush king-size bed with a Smart TV adjacent for your lazier mornings, and storage to unpack your belongings in your home-from-home. With so much to see and do in the area, be sure to take a trip to the cascading falls of Stock Ghyll Force, before enjoying a more leisurely stroll with a picnic at the lakeside Borrans Park. History enthusiasts can make their way to the Ambleside Roman Fort or admire the architecture of the National Trust's Wray Castle, which is within easy reach and home to manicured grounds. The National Trust also boasts Hill Top, a charming farmhouse once the home of Beatrix Potter, and Sizergh where you will find a rock garden and a 14th-century house and estate. Fans of literature may want to take a trip to visit Peter Rabbit and friends at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, while the avid golfer may want to spend an afternoon at Windermere Golf Club. For something a little different while in the area, the Lakeland Maze Farm Park is reachable by car, or you can bend your mind at the fascinating Puzzling Place. Whatever your interests, Little Hart Crag in the Lake District has something for you, while encompassed by unbeatable scenery.

Ambleside is an ideal base from which to explore the picture-perfect lakes in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Resting at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, Ambleside offers an abundance of outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking, while also being a lovely terrain for a more relaxed break with strolls along the lakeside and magnificent views of the surrounding mountain range.

    The apartment is a good size, clean and had all the amenities you need. I didn't experience any major issues while staying there but there are two things I would comment on. As another reviewer mentioned, there is a damp smell in the bedroom which is not very pleasant. Another thing to note is when it rains (as it often does in Cumbria) the road immediately outside the flat floods and passing traffic (the property is right in the road) sprays water on the front door and windows, which is both loud and problematic when returning and leaving. Not sure if anything can be done about that, but guests should be mindful of this during the rainy season. Other than those two things, the apartment was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone needed a well-located stay in Ambleside for hiking in the hills.

    In brief: The property has a damp, nasty odour permeating throughout, including the furniture. The property was dirty. There was a chopping board in the kitchen with thick blue mould on both sides. The carpet was dirty. Although the property is advertised as being on a main road, it should be also advised that the road is heavily used 24/7. If you are a light sleeper, do not book this cottage. Overall this is not a pleasant cottage to stay at. Sykes' 4 star rating could not be further from the truth. We use Sykes two or three times a year, but this booking has not met their standards at all.

    we could have used the instruction manual for the cooker struggled to work it, we would have like a safety mat in the shower and a glass jug for the microwave
