Perfect getaway
Such a lovely little house. So close to the town, yet secluded and private and stunning views. Clean and well presented , everything there you could need, lovely books and games to use. Parking space fine.

Fantastic Lake District getaway
Had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful Ambleside home. Great location, only two minute walk from the town, down the wooded garden steps, yet fantastically private and secluded, you would have no idea you were that close to the town. Views of the Loughrigg fells from the patio windows, makes you feel you are in the middle of nowhere The house is well equipped, modern and spotlessly clean The precious reviews had said the parking space was tight, yet our ford s max people carrier fit with no problem.

We will return every year!
We love it here. Perfect location, attentive hosts, beautiful views, very well kept, warm and inviting. Wonderful to return to after a hard day's walking, to relax infront of the fire before heading out to the delights of Ambleside, just a few steps away. Can't recommend highly enough.

This was one of the most comfortable, clean and well thought out holiday homes we have been in. It was central yet quiet and private, offering superb views. A great selection of books for information on the area was useful and appreciated. It was a lovely 'home' to come back to every evening.

Superb location and a lovely apartment with modern furnishings. Had a wonderful patio to sit and watch the view, although the view was also as good from the sofa looking out of the patio doors. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery. A clean and well maintained property.
