“Excellent holiday accommodation, magnificent views”

person found this review helpful

Extremely well furnished, great layout, plenty of space yet cosy and very comfortable. Dishwasher, washing machine and WiFi were great and much appreciated also the information office and maps available for guest use. Perfect touches such as flowers and biscuits and some milk on arrival. Sarah very helpful.
Magnificent views in all directions and walks on the doorstep. Location is great as it's quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the town which was perfect for us

Would have liked a private outdoor eating area for our cottage given the fantastic weather we had but this is a minor comment.

“A gem, with the most amazing views!”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A little difficult to find at first - it's up a winding track just outside Ambleside - but more than worth looking for! A lovely cottage, retaining many features of the barn, certainly plenty room for 4 of us, and would easily have slept 6. Very comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. All you can see around are fields and trees, absolutely stunning views. Very quiet, apart from the odd baa from a sheep, or moo from a cow. Heaven! Ambleside is a pretty little town, with a nice selection of eating places (do try Jintana Thai!), plenty shops (Silver Moon is an amazing gift shop, if, like me, you are partial to silver jewellery and ethnic knick-knacks!), an independent cinema, and a climbing wall. Lots of walks to do nearby, there was a guidebook available in the cottage. My daughter and I had a wonderful spa day at Oxleys in Ambleside, can thoroughly recommend their therapies and their food. The Go Ape centre near Hawkshead is within easy reach, as is Kendal, which is very pretty, and has a bigger range of High Street shops. Probably one of the nicest and most relaxing breaks we have ever had - would definitely go back.

“An excellent place to Stay”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a lovely place to stay. The house is very well equipped and we found welcoming touches such as a pint of milk, biscuits and flowers on the table. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen and relaxing looking at the stunning and ever changing views. The fact that we could walk from the house not having to take cars was a bonus and we completed 3 walks including one up to Red Screes on the ridge opposite. The position was central and we were able to reach other areas easily. The central bathroom with one toilet could have been a problem with 4 adults in the morning but we seemed to manage! The road down to Ambleside is steep but not impossible even after a days walking! (20 - 25 minutes return uphill)
