  • Daniel says:

    Brilliant place to stay in the Lakes. The cottage is beautiful and ideally located in the heart of Ambleside.

  • Katie & Julie says:

    Great location for exploring. Lots of walks from the doorstep. Bumbles Rest Café just passed the old bridge at the end of the road does amazing vegan sausage rolls! A very quaint town with loads of food options.

  • Ash says:

    Would recommend Fellcroft to anyone. Superb location, lovely cottage and hosts were extremely helpful in answering any questions beforehand Thank you for a lovely time!

  • Hollie says:

    Such a lovely cottage! It was clean and comfortable and had a really well equipped kitchen. Also a great location for walking into Ambleside town centre. We loved our stay at Fellcroft!

  • Rosie says:

    Lovely, comfy and very well-stocked cottage! The location was amazing, only a minutes walk into Ambleside town centre and the parking permit was a massive bonus. I would definitely recommend this cottage!

  • Thomas says:

    Both Fellcroft and Michelle are fabulous! Fellcroft is a lovely little cottage that has everything you should need – special shout out to the bath which was a god send after a long trek in the lakes. What a lovely little place located perfectly for everything you could need within walking distance (the car didn’t leave the car park all week). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely look at coming back again one day.

  • Rachel says:

    The location was fab, you could not get any more central to Ambleside which is great for walking to the shops, restaurants and pubs. Lovely cottage with a log burner and a very comfy bed! Would definitely recommend.

  • Emma says:

    We absolutely loved this cottage! It was our first time in the lakes in April when the restrictions first lifted and it was definitely a well deserved break with the both of us working on critical care over the pandemic. Fellcroft had everything we needed and more. Situated in a lovely village called Ambleside, which was in the middle of all the places we wanted to visit whilst we was in the lakes. Just popped onto the website to look at availability for next year at the same cottage as we enjoyed it so much!

  • Charlie says:

    Absolutely brilliant spot for exploring the Lakes. Really clear and easy to get to, great location right in the heart of town and lovely and cosy inside. Would absolutely recommend to anyone! Thank you for having me.

  • Lisa says:

    We had a lovely stay at the cottage. It’s in a perfect location just tucked away from the main streets of Ambleside, and has everything you need. Loved the fire place and bath tub!

  • Tim says:

    Great place, perfect location, highly recommend

  • Oliver says:

    Nice cosy cottage in a really good location. Lots of good pubs and restaurants in Ambleside. The cottage itself was lovely, well stocked kitchen, clean bathroom. Main pull is the location which couldn’t be better.”

  • Jo says:

    Had a great stay here, would 100% recommend – location was amazing, and the bath too!

  • Vilna says:

    Great location, clean, very cozy and the kitchen was very well equipped! Good for those of you that don’t plan to eat out every night. Also, the log fire definitely got extra points,

  • Tom says:

    Clean and cozy. A wonderful area around the cottage with plenty to do. A perfect stay.

  • Francesca says:

    Such a cute and cozy cottage in a great location! Loved Ambleside itself too. We had everything we needed and the welcome hamper was such a lovely touch. We stayed here for our babymoon and it was perfect.

    The only thing I would say is that I didn’t read about the amount of stairs! Being heavily pregnant it was a bit of a workout with all my toilet trips in the night. This did not detract from our stay though!

    I would definitely recommend this as a lovely place to stay. We also got some delicious produce from the butchers opposite the cottage. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Gill says:

    Wonderful place to stay everything you could need and a great location . Good communications with host . Perfect

  • Martin says:

    “Lovely little cottage, right in the centre of Ambleside. The welcome package was a fantastic introduction to the place. We did enjoy our stay in the lovely little cottage!

  • Carol says:

    The cottage is cosy, welcoming and well-appointed. It was perfect for a relaxing break for my husband and I. The location is excellent, a quiet street but only minutes walk from all the shops, restaurants and facilities of Ambleside. There are also a number of walks that can be accessed directly from the cottage. Perfect! We’ll be back.

  • Jonny says:

    Fantastic cottage, lots of homely touches made it a fantastic place to stay. Would recommend.

  • Callum says:

    Lovely cottage and in walking distance of all the local shops and easy access to the walks on the fells! Having the car park only a couple of minutes away with a car pass was very useful!

  • Vikki says:

    What an amazing week we had at fellcroft cottage. Such a cosy place, and great base for us to stay after a day walking, or exploring. The cottage had everything we needed, and more. Plus a lovely welcome hamper from the hosts. Location was fab, near to all the pubs, cafes, restaurants etc. Recommend the royal oak, and golden rule for a pint or 2. And bar es for some yummy tapas. So many different walks right on your doorstep. With stunning views. There was so much to do and see, we could have easily stayed another week.

  • Barbara says:

    This private cottage is in an ideal location. Everything you could wish for is provided. We had a wonderful time and would be happy to return in the future.

  • Andrew says:

    Small & quaint cottage in the heart of Ambleside just perfect for 2 people.

  • Chris says:

    Was amazing, perfect spot next to pubs and all the local amenities! Will stay again!

  • Alan says:

    Superb location, excellent facilities, lovely cottage. Steepish stairs maybe not ideal if mobility is an issue but otherwise wholeheartedly recommended!

  • Rhian says:

    Fellcroft is the most amazing cottage and in the most amazing location. It served as a great base for us as we explored the lakes! Very well equipped and spotlessly clean, we felt like we were right at home. Plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants nearby made it a perfect choice – just a short stroll for dinner of an evening allowing us both to enjoy a gin or 2! Zeffirellis for pizza and the cinema was perfect, the priest hole was lovely for a special birthday meal for my husband. The parking permit for south makes car parks was a god send, teamed with out national trust membership we didn’t have to pay for much parking at all! Would recommend travelling to the Lakes Gin distillery – amazing! We bought a keepsake bottle of gin to remind us of our minimoon we spent in the lakes during this week. Sad to have returned home but would love to come back and stay at fellcroft again so we can explore all the places and try all the restaurants we didn’t have time to this week

  • Mari says:

    Very cosy little flat. Good location, friendly neighbors. Highly recommended!

  • Leonie says:

    This very sweet cottage provided a great stay. The location is fantastic – very close to pubs/shops and everything you will need, but it also provided a great base to experience the beautiful walks that the Lakes has to offer. The check-in/check-out process was seamless, and lovely welcome pack was provided which got us off to a great start (along with a bottle of wine which was very much enjoyed!) The cottage is set across 3 floors, and the bedroom on the top floor was beautiful – the bath was certainly needed after some rather long walks! Overall a lovely stay, and highly recommended to anyone wanting to experience Ambleside

  • Hayley says:

    Fantastic cottage, great location and brilliant hosts. I can’t recommend highly enough

  • Andrew says:

    The cottage is absolutely gorgeous, in an amazing location. If you want a romantic stay in Ambleside then you must stay here….. it’s fabulous!

  • Paul says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to stay at Fellcroft cottage was a great break away
