The accommodation was smaller than I expected, a little too cramped for 3 adults. The other major disappointment was the lack of any windows in the downstairs area (kitchen and lounge), which didn't help with the claustrophobic feel.
This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful cottage, in the heart of Ambleside - and within walking distance of the Lake. It was exactly as we remembered it from last year, immaculately decorated. The cottage has a lovely friendly feel, and Ernie (our daschund) loved the treats that had been left. We were really grateful for the milk, bread and juice, but more so for the welcoming bottle of wine.
I would highly recommend this cottage, and owner to anyone.
Excellent location, right in the heart of Ambleside centre. Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished through out to a vey high standard. Loved the quirky layout and wouldn't' hesitate to return. Highly recommended
Loved everything about this cottage, very comfortable, beautiful décor, furnishings etc, great central location both for the town and the surrounding areas. Nice touches, bread, wine, tea, coffee etc. in kitchen, toiletries in bathroom. The little seating area outside the door is a sun trap, the parking space, though tight, is a boon in this very busy town.
Myself my partner and son stayed for a long weekend and could not have had a better experience. The cottage is immaculate and location perfect. The owners really go above and beyond to make sure your stay is everything you are looking for. Would highly recommend staying here.
We are coming to the end of a 3 day stay at the end of May. The cottage is spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect between Ambleside town centre and Waterhead. According to other posts which say parking is narrow...Well we have a Mercedes A Class and it fitted quite nicely next to a big BMW X5 with no problems at all. The fact that the cottage is also dog friendly just makes it fabulous. The place is a perfect little hideaway for a relaxing stay in the lakes. Will be sad to leave today.
Thank you so much Margaret for the wine and essentials left it was such a lovely thought. X
EXCELLENT dog friendly cottage situated just 10 mins walk from lake windermere.... this cottage has everything you need its like being home from home... we stayed Monday to Friday for our anniversary and on arrival Margaret had very kindly left us a balloon and a lovely bottle of wine to celebrate (thankyou so much x) aswell as bread milk juice and everyday cleaning products, its a great little cottage just mins away from the shops bars and restaurants but if you prefer after a busy day out its just perfect to relax..... Margaret is literally at the end of the phone should you need her which is really handy... should we return to the lakes we wont hesitate in returning to 2 the old coach house, me my husband and our dog penny absolutely loved it...... thankyou so much Margaret for everything, you really have got a beautiful cottage, we made some great memories that will last a lifetime............. xxxx
