High Ridge Apartment close to the center of Ambleside
Excellent spot in the center of Ambleside A clean and comfortable Apartment and very quiet considering it was over the CO-OP store and a short distance from Ambleside tavern. It is fairly compact in the bathroom but a constant supply of hot water if required. I had a text from the owner telling me how to find it was needed as there is a tall wooden gate. Never had an issue with parking even though its on the road, will stay there again the dog found the wood flooring in the kitchen and dining area cool for him to sleep on. Found the double bed to have a firm mattress but comfortable, there is 2 single beds in another bedroom but didn't need them as there was only the 2 of us.

Leakage in the twin bedroom due to rain, had to place a bowl for the entire stay. No wi-fi, shame as it is really needed these days, especially that the TV had a very bad signal. The double bed has a very hard mattress, didn?t sleep very well and some better linnen ia needed. A cafetierre would be handy. Good location and comfortable. All of the above easily fixable to offer a good experience.

Excellent self-catering flat
This is in a really central location (Ambleside) which is excellent for getting to most parts of the Lake District - and for use, for going to concerts in the Lake District Summer Music Festival. Very good facilities: well-appointed and good-sized kitchen; bathroom a bit tiny but fine, with good hot water; comfy beds and good duvets etc. Quiet, considering it's on a main street and above the Co-op. Owner was helpful with initial queries.

Decent location, adequate amenities could have been better with abit more attention
This was a reasonable accommodation with on street parking. Unfortunately the property was found dirty on arrival with mould in the fridge and the cooker visibly dirty. The property could do with a little investment to fix a broken cupboard, repair slats in the single beds which mean they are liable to collapse and give the walls a lick of paint. The double bedroom i assume is not part of the rental because of the damp on the main wall needing major attention. Even the highchair and Crib which we asked to be left out were in a dirty dusty cupboard. The location for accessing Ambleside and the surrounding areas was very good.

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.
