“Excellent - everything we could have wished for”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This property was picked out at the last minute almost, but turned out to be ideal for us (3 adults). Minor drawbacks would have been the vehicular access to the parking bay, which was quite tight (but at least there was parking), the stairs to the front door (which would have been difficult for some, but not us) and the rather raucous 'music' from across the road late at night. Again, this wasn't really a problem for us, and the bedrooms are towards the other side of the property. So, all in all, it was clean, well kitted out, and ideal for visiting the Lake District, which is why we were there. I was delighted and would definitely use it again if the need arose.

“Class Apartment and Location”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Booked a last minute four night break in October through Lakes Cottage Holidays. The apartment which is extremely well appointed, with quality decoration and furnishings, is in a first class location witht plenty of quality restaurants, shops and cafes on the doorstep. Stayed midweek so didn't suffer too much noise from bar opposite, couldn't see a problem with the stairs and private parking is a bonus. Ambleside is an excellent base for visiting a huge chunk of the Lake District, but you could just park the car and walk in the local area. We would definitely recommend Kelsick Heights and hope to visit again. Two minor issues no wifi, and Cottage Holidays need to update both internal photographs, description and directions on both Web site and in brochure to give the property the full credit it is due.

Fantastic flat with great facilities. Clean ,warm and very roomy. I would have rated this accommodation excellent apart from the traffic noise and the late night music bar across the road. Cannot understand the lack of double glazing...I would definitely return otherwise
