Lovely apartment
We spent a week here in July and were really pleased with it, would definitely return. Surprisingly enough, despite what it says here on Trip Advisor, the apartment has two bedrooms, one double and one single and there is plenty of room. It seems to have been recently refurbished. Although it is on the second floor you only have to climb one flight of steps to access the front door due to the way the land lies, although those steps are a fire escape. There are also half a dozen steps leading from the kitchen and bathroom to the rest of the rooms. It is well furnished and furbished, and the beds are lovely and comfy. The main problem for us was that there is no Wi-Fi.

High Ridge is conveniently located for all facilities, also within easy walking distance of spectacular Windermere. The property is very comfortable and well-furnished.
