Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cottage. It is so unique to have a cottage which is so private but yet seconds from town centre. Would love to have you back again.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Correspondence between me and the owner was ideal. I was reminded when payment was due and sent clear directions and instructions for entering the property.
The property itself was very clean and cosy. The owner has worked with the original structure to make the best use of natural light and maximise space.
The kitchen was great. I am a keen cook and brought my own kitchen knife but I need not have. Good set of knives and pots and pans. Also ample flat wear and glasses including champagne flutes. Bonus points for a good gas hob.
We were able to have friends over for dinner and cook a good meal in comfortable surroundings.
We had been left some extra touches including fresh bread from the local bakery, milk and juice, not to mention a bottle of wine which made our arrival even more special.
Location fabulous, minute or two walk from outdoor shops, great pubs and restaurants. Rescind express a few minutes walk up the road also.
We don't have a dog but appreciated the tennis balls and dog bowls in the cupboard would be great if we did.
The mezzanine bedroom area was lovely but the mattress was far too soft for our taste.
Would definitely come back here.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our third visit to this cottage - but certainly not our last.
This is a fantastic cottage to stay in - clean, cosy and well equipped.
It's the little details around the cottage which makes it so special.
Thank you Margaret

“Excellent stay and great house”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for three nights in June and cannot really find any fault with the house. It was exactly as described and everything was terrific down to smallest detail. The bottle of wine on arrival and also the milk, tea and coffee for when we arrived just let you know that the owners really care that their guests are catered for.
Myself and my girlfriend and our dog (it is a dog friendly cottage) would certainly have no problem recommending this to anyone. You are literally a two minute walk from the centre of Ambleside and you can set foot out of the door and explore the area with ease. We intend to go back to Ambleside in the future and we will certainly be booking here again.

What a wonderful find this cottage was and perfect for myself and my husband to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. Margaret was the prefect host, preparing the cottage and leaving a bottle of bubbly and a balloon to help us celebrate.
The cottage is quirky and very well presented in cleanliness, furniture and accessories.
I will definitely be promoting this cottage to family and friends and will without a doubt book the cottage again for my next visit to Ambleside.
Keep up the good work and thank you
