Convenient location for pubs, shops, lake.
Spacious, very clean apartment with modern interior decor. Great that a parking space is provided and very conveniently situated for town centre, bars ,shops restaurants etc. The whirlpool bath was a bonus to relax in after a hard days walk. Take your own towels and the ones provided were thin and worn. Not for anyone who struggles with stairs as 23 steps up to apartment via metal staircase, which we did not find a problem. I must mention that the beds in the twin bedroom are very small, and are more suitable to children, certainly not comfortable for adults, A pleasant few days spent here.

Great location
A very nice, spacious apartment in the centre of Ambleside. The furnishings were mainly comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The twin beds however, were a little uncomfortable for adults. There is a certain amount of road noise, and the pub across the street is popular and can be very noisy until the small hours. The main disadvantage of this apartment is the steep and narrow iron outside staircase, which is very slippery when it is wet. So while I would like to recommend the apartment, the access means I would be concerned about safety.

Very Nice Apartment
You access the apartment by climbing up the fire escape. We didn't have any problem doing this and hauling up our luggage but some might. The apartment is furnished very nicely but has a few minor maintenance issues such as burned out light bulbs and nice blinds that are are not working properly. Wifi only works in the bedrooms. Does not work in the living room or kitchen areas. We arrived on a Fri about 4:30 pm. As we couldn't access the wifi we called property mgmt for help. They didn't know how to fix the problem but said they would have the owner get back to us. Never heard from anyone. The apartment is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. In the evening there was outside noise from a bar across the street. Because it was quite warm we needed to have the windows open. In rainy or cooler weather this may not be an issue. We did notify rental company of maintenance issues before we left. The apartment is in a central location and Ambleside itself convenient for many walks.

Gorgeous apartment in an ideal location
This apartment was perfect for a relaxing break in Ambleside and was right in the centre of the town. We could easily walk a few minutes to find lovely restaurants for evening meals (I would recommend Lucy's on a plate - especially if it's a special occasion and if so, make sure you book and mention that you're celebrating!) It took about 15 minutes to walk to Lake Windermere from the apartment where we caught a boat to Bowness on Windermere. The apartment itself was such a lovely place to stay if you like a little luxury, from the huge flat screen television to the jacuzzi bath (even though we had some difficulty with the warm water to fill up the bath) - these details gave our stay an extra sparkle, and was the perfect place to open up a bottle of wine after a day of walking or visiting the nearby towns.

Excellent accommodation in Ambleside
We have stayed here twice now and it suits us perfectly as it is right in the middle of Ambleside and close to its bars and restaurants but also many walks can be started from here, such as the Fairfield Horseshoe. Yes, the access may not suit some, but if you are a fell walker it shouldn't bother you in the slightest. The flat itself is very comfortable and quite spacious for a family of four . There can be some street noise, but if you are in the middle of Ambleside, what do you expect? We would recommend for sociable fell walkers!
