Stunning view and great location.
We just had a fabulous 7 day stay here, during Pandemic times and a very busy Lake District. I chose the apartment because of two things: it looked like incredible value for money, being positioned as it is so close to Windermere and Ambleside AND the picture of the bay window views of Lake Windermere. On arrival, I felt that the place exceeded my expectations. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable. The photographs do not do it justice. The bay window in the living/dining room is huge and you could sit/stand all day staring at the view. We didn't have the best of weather during our stay, but the constantly changing light and clarity as clouds and mist and rain moved across the aspect was wonderful. I am not sure that the description of the house being 'in the centre of the village of Troutbeck' is very helpful. Troutbeck is a 'village' that spreads itself over miles of hillside, and in fact, we tried to avoid driving through it as much as we could, because it was very busy with traffic (both pedestrian and car). Instead we found a more direct route down to the main road between Windermere and Ambleside, although as previous reviewers have said, the roads are very narrow and steep. If you are a nervous driver, The Lake District as a whole is not really a good place to visit ! And certainly, being a confident driver is a must if you are staying in Low Skelgill. The house is actually set in a very peaceful location, with just a few walkers passing by on their way up the hill. For amenities, you have both Windermere and Ambleside close by with lots of shops, restaurants and bars. Kendal isn't too far, and you can find decent supermarkets there.

Roomy flat with beautiful views
This is a very roomy flat with lovely views over Lake Windermere and the countryside.However because of its peaceful location ,it is high up a hill with a single precipitous track as access.so you have to plan your shopping carefully as there is no popping to the shops!. The flat is no frills but very clean and comfortable.The owner was helpful and turned the excellent heating on as we has a cold spell. The only drawback was the lack of a washing machine as the walking was rather muddy and wet. There is a lot of parking space.

Peace and quiet
A great little find. Peace and quite abounds. Warm, comfortable, perfect. Walks to both Troutbeck and ambleside straight from the door, plus the added bonus of lambing time. Will be back.

A great week at Low Skelgill
Situated close to many amenities with great views of Windermere. A very enjoyable stay.

Spacious, lovely view and excellent value
Really enjoyed our stay. Off the beaten track and not quite the Troutbeck location expected but a really lovely view. Would definitely stay again. Lovely spacious lounge with great view from dining table.
