  • Fiona says:

    This is a super cottage in a great location in Ambleside. It was perfect for a family of three and has more space than you realise, including a cellar area with washing machine etc and small back courtyard, useful if you had bikes. The double bed is very comfortable. The key pick up and drop off were very easy.”

  • Pauline says:

    Excellent in all aspects…would book it again.

  • Edward says:

    lovely cottage in the heart of Ambleside, set of the street in a tiny courtyard. loads of space for 3 people. handy spaces for hanging wet/muddy walking clothes. one of the best equipped rental kitchens I’ve ever seen.

  • Hilary says:

    A fabulously located cottage with everything you need

  • Rex says:

    Church Cottage is ideally situated in Ambleside. The size of the accommodation is great and very well equipped for 2/3 people. We had a great 9 days here and hope to return to Ambleside one day. There is parking directly outside the Cottage but is best suited for small cars as the approach alleyway is narrow and other vehicles could be parked near your exit route.

  • Susanna says:

    Amazing location, very nicely finished with plenty of space for three people. Would highly recommend staying here! Great communication and very easy to pick up the keys even though we arrived late – it was no problem

  • David says:

    Great place, well appointed and close to restaurants, supermarket and shops. It was warm and quiet. Check in was easy and dropping the key off was no hassle.

  • Louise says:

    Great location, only a few steps away from the shops and restaurant yet felt quiet and secluded given its hidden location. Also very much an advantage to have parking (space for 1 car) right outside the property. House well equipped and plenty of space for three of us, nice touch to have tea and coffee available for when you arrive. Appreciated the high chair and travel cot in the property too for our toddler. All in all a great stay and if in Ambleside again we’ll definitely return to Church Cottage!

  • Robert says:

    Fantastic place, amazing location and one of the best Airbnbs I’ve stayed in. The parking is a bit tight but that’s literally my only complaint, highly recommended.

  • Micheal says:

    “Lovely cottage, perfect location, parking is tight (bring a smallish car) but having the parking space right outside cottage was a massive bonus as Ambleside is busy. Everything you need is supplied. Highly recommend cottage for any length of stay.”

  • Barclay says:

    My father had a very nice break in this lovely cottage, everything was as described, very clean, great location and no problems parking.

  • Charlotte says:

    Beautiful cottage with everything we needed (and more!!). Wonderful location and well thought out with everything from a Sonos system to DVDs for the dark evenings. Can’t wait to go back.
