A great cottage that was deceptively spacious. Plenty of room for a family of 4 plus grand-parents. The cottage has absolutely everything you'd ever need or think of and is wonderfully comfortable and warm (even during a snowy February half term). The visitor centre opposite wasn't even on our radar but when the weather turned foul, the fantastic adventure playground and indoor soft play kept the kids entertained and happy. You can get the ferry from here too so day trips are a doddle. The location is in perfect striking distance for fell walks, museums and attractions and fine dining. It's always interesting to read through the visitor book and the ones at Pudding Cottage reflect visitors coming back 10 times! Parking for a couple of cars too. Great setting, great location, top cottage!
Enviable location with easy access to walks, the lake, outdoor activities centre and a bus stop. You may however not want to leave the excellent accommodation which has everything you could wish for. Very comfy beds, thick fluffy towels, a well equipped kitchen and lovely décor throughout. Both family and dog friendly this is an ideal house for a holiday at any time of the year. Most definitely plan to return.
Just home from a week's stay at the lovely Pudding Cottage. It was exactly as advertised and lived up to all expectations. It worked really well in terms of location and the house itself was large and very comfortable for a holiday with a toddler and visiting friends and grandparents.
Angela the owner made us very welcome. Beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need, including for our large dog. I have booked again for 2018 can't wait to return. Thank you for a lovely stay. Also their lovely restaurant should be visited.
Beautiful cottage. Beautiful aspect. 5 minute walk across A591 to Brockhole. My 3 children loved the tree treking, treetop nets and the Brave the cave. We also took a boat ride to Ambleside. We ate at the watersedge inn twice here. The food was fabulous and the bonus was that they allowed dogs. we then hopped back on the boat to Wray castle. The friendly gardeners got our children involved in planting daffodil bulbs which was a lovely touch. we booked the indoor climbing wall in Ambelside on a wet day which was a really good place too. The cottage itself is quality throughout, My boys loved the xbox and variety of games and dvd. We didnt use the leisure club as we wanted more of an outdoors week. The cottage is homely and warm. No issue with hot water when showering and bathing as the super duper boiler means constant instant hot water available. I had a few niggles over the cleaners more than the cottage. Just minor things like the dishwasher filter being completley full of rice and in desperate need of a good clean, which i gave it. I have fed this back to Sue so that she is able to take this up with the cleaners. The pots, pans, crockery etc, is all top quality and plenty of them. We absolutely loved it here and are already looking at returning in the spring.
Spent a few days here at the end of September to go mountain biking and had a lovely stay. Location is spot on - decent riding out the door, within walking distance of Ambleside and very close to the bus stop if you don't want to walk. The cottage itself is very nice, with a nice big living room and kitchen, and comfy beds. Will definitely stay again!
We stayed for a week in September and despite some pretty miserable weather we had a great time. It was a fantastic holiday for our 2 year old - the location is brilliant, right opposite Brockhole visitor centre with a big playground, good cafe and place to pick up boats and the cottage itself is really well equipped with so many toys, kids crockery and cutlery etc. Really impressed with the space and the kitchen equipment too. The membership for the leisure centre was another huge bonus, particularly for a rainy day activity. We will definitely be back!
