This spacious apartment is in the village of Ambleside and sleeps two people in one bedroom.

Tom Heights is spacious and airy apartment on the first floor of a spectacular Victorian building on Ambleside high street. The beautiful property sleeps two adults and has a cosy sitting room with entertainment system, fully-equipped kitchen and high-spec bathroom. Outside, there is private parking for one car.

Located just a short walk from the town centre, which is home to various shops, bars and restaurants, Tom Heights is also close to the stunning scenery of the Lake District and its vast array of visitor attractions, including the spectacular Windermere and various scenic walking routes. Tom Heights is an ideal base for couples or individuals to explore the Lake District National Park from, whatever the time of year.


The mouldy, poorly fitted bathroom badly lets this property down.
Black mould around bath, wash basin and kitchen sink. Toilet seat too small, so you sit partially on toilet rim. Toilet not clean on arrival. Total lack of customer service from Sykes Cottages who manage the rental, would not book through them again.

Enjoyable week
Had a most enjoyable week in this very cosy flat. It was very well equipped with everything we needed. The decor was lovely and very clean. The flat is very central so you can just leave the car (own space at the rear) and walk everywhere. Will definitely stay again.

Great apartment, perfectly situated
Stylish and well-equipped, it has everything you'll need. Right in the heart of Ambleside, lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. We loved sitting at the table by the window with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and do some people watching. Zeffirelli's next door with live music and great vegetarian food is also worth mentioning.

Our 3rd visit. Definitely not our last!
Once again, a wonderful and comfortable stay in his great little apartment in the heart of Ambleside (not Amble as stated in the heading!). Having parked the car (which despite the warnings is perfectly straightforward) we bought bus passes for the week and were able to forget about traffic jams and parking spaces for the entire holiday. It worked out brilliantly for walking too. Anyway, staying in Tom Heights is a delight. The comfortable bed, compact layout, well-equipped kitchen and lovely, bright living room make for a really relaxed holiday. There are several great pubs and restaurants nearby. The proximity to Zeffirelli's cinema and restaurant is a particular bonus. We love Tom Heights and we'll definitely be returning.

Excellent location and flexible start date
Right in the centre of Ambleside but with parking so we could leave the car and walk. Well equipped rental and clean and comfortable. We needed a flexible start date so this was great to find. Traffic was noisy in a morning but we are early risers and got out before the crowds - especially important if we wanted to use the car. Ambleside is central for lots of lovely walks to suit all abilities and various attractions including some interesting National Trust properties
