“Very comfortable apartment in a great location for walkers.”
Reviewed 4 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This apartment is very nice - the kitchen is good, the beds are comfortable, the view from the living room is really nice - it's a nice set of hills, not Loughrigg, but even better! - the furniture is comfortable, good appliances everywhere. The only thing that is a negative about the apartment itself is the entrance - it's up an external staircase that is effectively the fire escape. This can lead to tricky footing if there is any frost (yes, it got that cold in May) or wet, and it is not easy to negotiate a big or heavy suitcase up those stairs. But if you're fit enough to walk up the hills, you should make it. Then you can collapse into the comfort of the apartment. I'd like to warn visitors from the US that the type of washer/dryer in the apartment can take a very long time to wash and dry clothes, so plan well in advance. On the other hand, the dishwasher is superior to any I have used in the US. The company that services the apartment does not provide bath towels, which is a slight inconvenience. You might need to purchase extra toilet rolls.

We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

One last thing - we got a taxi from Windermere station to the apartment, our taxi driver used to be a postman in Ambleside and even he couldn't find it from the directions that were given to us. They need to be improved and updated.

“Fantastic Apartments in the heart of Ambleside”
Reviewed 15 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Have just returned from a long weekend in the Lake District. The apartment was beautifully decorated and had a fantastic location in the centre of Ambleside. We left our car on Friday and didn't use it again until Sunday. We did a great walk up to Grassmere for a day and spent the rest of the time pottering around the shops and great tea rooms and restaurants in Ambleside. The apartment was really well equipped, showers were powerful and the beds were really comfortable with snuggly down duvets and pillows. Fantastic apartment would highly recommend! It also caters well for groups of friends as it is possible to rent the apartment next door.

“Excellently appointed holiday apartment within easy reach of local amenities and direct access to the Lakes.”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Despite a slightly odd rear entrance to the property via the fire escape, what unfolded inside was very good indeed. Comfortable accommodation in all respects, with an eye for detail regarding the needs of visitors. Very clean, with generously sized bedrooms/ bathroom. Of course the excellent weather helped! Definitely recommend to family and friends and would return ourselves. A good find by our friends.
