As others have pointed out, the self-catering cottage is attached to a working sheep and dairy farm approximately 6 miles from Ambleside. Yes, it's a little remote, but that was the attraction for us... amazing scenery and beautiful walks literally from the front door. I personally had no problem in finding it via SatNav, the nearest shop and pub are only 3 miles away, and we brought most of what we needed on the journey up.
The inside of the cottage is pretty, and was very clean for our visit. There is a well-equipped kitchen, a dining table and a comfortable 'crashing' area. The large inglenook fireplace contains a wood-burning stove - great for cool evenings, although the radiators are very efficient too... The beds were comfortable, the shower was hot, and there was space to hang and put away clothes... exactly what we wanted.
Our hosts were friendly and welcoming, without being overbearing. They made us feel at home, but able to get on with our family holiday.
It was a little more expensive than other options we considered, but the feeling of being at home and the amazing location made it (for us) well worth the extra cost.
Our 5 and 10-year-old loved it... as did we.
