A real "Walker's Retreat"
Great location for town and surrounding countryside. Spotlessly clean and cosy with wonderful views of the hills from the lounge. Everything you could wish for is provided. Parking close to the apartment with sufficient space for an SUV. Highly recommended; can't wait to make a return visit to this holiday cottage.

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.
