This beautiful countryside apartment is in the village of Ambleside in the Lake District and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Kelsick Heights is a second floor apartment in the heart of Ambleside in the Lake District offering luxurious contemporary accommodation for 4. The double bedroom has a luxury en-suite shower room while the twin bedroom enjoys use of the fabulous family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. The spacious living room has views to the fells while the modern dining kitchen is fully equipped.

Located above the popular Atelier cafe, in the same block as Loughrigg View (which can be booked with Kelsick Heights to provide first class accommodation for 8), the apartment has private off-road parking for 1 car and is right in the heart of popular Ambleside, with the shores of Lake Windermere just a short walk away. Ideal for family and friends exploring the Lake District whatever the time of year, Kelsick Heights is a wonderful base from which to see and do everything this wonderful part of the world has to offer.


Do not stay if you want any sleep
Being in the town we expected a certain level of noise, however, what we experienced was horrific for a family. The bar across the street was open until 01:00 and the street party went on long after. The poor single glazing in the property meant that sleep was impossible until at least 02:00. Completely ruined a family holiday.

Excellent - everything we could have wished for
This property was picked out at the last minute almost, but turned out to be ideal for us (3 adults). Minor drawbacks would have been the vehicular access to the parking bay, which was quite tight (but at least there was parking), the stairs to the front door (which would have been difficult for some, but not us) and the rather raucous 'music' from across the road late at night. Again, this wasn't really a problem for us, and the bedrooms are towards the other side of the property. So, all in all, it was clean, well kitted out, and ideal for visiting the Lake District, which is why we were there. I was delighted and would definitely use it again if the need arose.

A gem !
Fantastic location, very well equipped to a high standard. Will return again ! Great for couples, small groups. Limited parking but street and car park near by. Entrance up external fire staircase so not ideal for children or elderly guests. Excellent apartment overall !

Class Apartment and Location
Booked a last minute four night break in October through Lakes Cottage Holidays. The apartment which is extremely well appointed, with quality decoration and furnishings, is in a first class location witht plenty of quality restaurants, shops and cafes on the doorstep. Stayed midweek so didn't suffer too much noise from bar opposite, couldn't see a problem with the stairs and private parking is a bonus. Ambleside is an excellent base for visiting a huge chunk of the Lake District, but you could just park the car and walk in the local area. We would definitely recommend Kelsick Heights and hope to visit again. Two minor issues no wifi, and Cottage Holidays need to update both internal photographs, description and directions on both Web site and in brochure to give the property the full credit it is due.

We booked at short notice and were delighted with the property. It was absolutely perfect and so spacious. Beautifully decorated bedrooms, huge kitchen and lounge, our own parking space too! Would highly recommend Kelsick Height as it's in an ideal location and has everything you could hope for from self catering accommodation.
