    This is a great house in a perfect location. It is just off one of the main streets but is really quiet. 2 minutes walk to shops, pubs, restaurants and the park.

    Great place to start for those further afield walks too. The house is on 3 floors and would sleep 6 comfortably however I would say the only tiny downside is just one bathroom which didn’t bother us as we were only 2 but it may if there were 6 of you.

    The house was spotless, we loved that we could take our dog at no extra charge and also you would never know that dogs had been in the house.

    We would definitely stay again

  • Kathie says:

    Excellent location with so many available amenities. Very welcoming reception. We had fabulous stay.

  • David says:

    Wonderful stay for a family of 4 with our small dog in central Ambleside.

    We couldn’t get over how great the location was with everything we could want a stones throw away, from the park and play area to the cafes and town centre.

    On street parking just outside the house was no problem and late night key collection worked very well.

    Lovely house with everything we needed for a long weekend. Will definitely be looking to stay again next time we’re in Ambleside.

  • Andrew says:

    Lovely few days away in the lakes, location was perfect for getting around Ambleside and the local area, and you can easily walk into the hills straight from the house.

  • Anna says:

    Great location, clean and with everything we needed. Good communication and directions before we arrived.

    The owners live next door and popped in to see if everything was ok which was a nice touch.

    Some much appreciated touches like… comfy beds (without ends, great for tall people!), quality linen + towels and clean sponges/clothes/tea towels & washing up liquid in kitchen.

    The wifi didn’t work while we were there but it didn’t affect our stay as we had phone reception.

    Perfect for a family of 4 and we hope to stay again.

  • Grant says:

    Lovely well cared for property with good vantage point centrally in Ambleside and can sit outside front and rear.

    A cosy base from which to explore all the Lake District has to offer. Also plenty of good restaurants on your door step for eating out.

    Overall a very enjoyable break.

  • Elisabeth says:

    A wonderful air b n b experience. Lovely, cosy cottage with a terrific location in Ambleside. Everything you could want on your doorstep – coffee house with juice bar, bakery, supermarkets plus a beautiful village with an abundance of cafes and restaurants.

    The owner popped around and was so kind and offered to help with anything. The house was perfect for our small family holiday.

    Highly recommend!

  • David says:

    Very nice place to stay on a long weekend. Superb position in town. Parking easy and lots of amenities.

  • Daniel says:

    Great location with all the amenities of Ambleside very close by. Good parking and plenty of space inside the property

  • James says:

    Very nice, clean little town house right in the heart of town. Great little find, would reccomend it to anyone looking to visit the area.

  • Jo says:

    We had a lovely stay – 2 adults a toddler a baby and a dog. There are 3 floors in the cottage and a small garden so plenty of space. Lovely views from the top floor over Ambleside. A few supplies were provided which was nice and there is a washer dryer in the outhouse which was useful. Had a very enjoyable stay.

  • Jennifer says:

    This was a wonderful location. Right in the center of Ambleside, but off the main loop and raised from the street with lovely views of the surroundings. A stone’s throw from all shops, the park/recreation grounds, and of course the start of many great walks. The owner lives next door and was attentive but not intrusive. There was always parking available out front and with the resident’s pass provided, it was not an issue at all. The beds were really comfortable. We would happily stay again! Only thing is that the property is rented through a rental company called Lakeland Retreats, which I didn’t realise when I first booked it through here. It meant I didn’t get the exact dates I had searched for on Airbnb (more traditional changeover day options) but they were great about it, and the check in process and all communication was very smooth and pleasant. I would definitely use the company again.

  • Estelle says:

    We had great holidays in This cottage, well equiped great location and really comfy. We felt at home from the first day. Lots of shops and restaurants around. Nice walks and quite central in the Lake District. We would definitely come back. Thank you !

  • John says:

    Fantastic location and true Lakeland experience. Ambleside is an amazing town with loads of great places to eat. And then there is the Lake District, we’ve fallen in love with the place

  • Charlotte says:

    “A spacious and homely cottage in the heart of Ambleside. Superb location for access to all the village has to offer, and to be able to walk from the door to some fabulous countryside. Parking easy with permit and little courtyard garden a bonus. Great communications prior/during stay, thoughtful amenities provided like towels/washing machine, great new moderined bathroom. Great to be able to take a small dog as this is a wonderful location to have them with you. Overall a great location and space made it a superb week in Ambleside. Thanks!

  • Loren says:

    An absolutely superb cottage, right in the heart of Ambleside! Yet still conveniently tucked away in a private, safe and peaceful area. My father is from Ambleside so his “cottage expectations” are high to say the least but this cottage far exceeded any of our expectations, it was the quintessential perfect English cottage for our 10 day holiday! It was filled with character, thoughtful touches from the patterned curtains, wide variety of books and board games in the living room, array of tourist brochures/ pamphlets, to the fantastically fully equip kitchen (which has an amazing oven)! It has a great layout, clean and quite environment, comfortable beds, the check in and check out process was super easy for Airbnb first-timers like ourselves, the team who manage the property were great, friendly, easy to communicate with and always on hand to help. We would absolutely recommend staying here and very much look forward to our next stay! ***HIGHLY RECOMMEND***”
