  • Roger Crozier says:

    Fantastic quirky cottage perfect for two people. We stayed for New Year and from the phone call to confirm the cottage was ready with a welcome pack inside to locking the door and leaving it was exceptional. The kitchen is well equipped with everything to hand, the lounge is comfortable and cosy and the bedroom spacious. The location in the centre of Ambleside has everything within a two minute walk with 2 pubs and the butchers on your doorstep.

  • James says:

    A great value stay in an amazing location. The parking permit which is valid in other car parks to is a real help

  • Claire says:

    Lovely cottage, clean and cosy and perfect location for exploring the lakes. We managed to get a slight discount for last minute booking, and also a slightly later check out than normal so we could watch some of the Queens funeral. We had a lovely time and would recommend.

  • Ros says:

    Beautiful cottage in the heart of Ambleside. Exactly as shown in the pictures and with everything needed for a short stay. Bonus feature was finding the TV had a Chromecast attached to enable me to stream from my phone. Would definitely recommend. Thankyou for a lovely stay.

  • Amanda says:

    This property was exactly as it looked in the pictures, traditional and cosy and the three floors made it unusual. The 2 flights of stairs were quite steep so not a place to stay if you have mobility issues but nevertheless charming and in keeping with the style of the cottage. The roll top bath in the bedroom and the shower on the floor below meant we could both get ready to go out at the same which was great and the lounge area on the middle floor had a log burner which was lovely. (My other half was even going to light it one cooler morning, so keen was he to use it- but fortunately I reminded him the forecast was for almost a heatwave!) I was in contact with various people via the site several times before our arrival and they always responded quickly and were able to answer my questions easily. Due the the location parking was necessary elsewhere, though only a 10 minute walk, so the permit was a godsend. Ambleside is a gorgeous part of the country, especially during the weather we had and I would love to visit there again and stay in this home again.

  • Felix says:

    Great little cottage in the heart of Ambleside. Everything you need within a 5 minute walk.

  • Andrew says:

    This was the perfect place for a weekend getaway, my wife and I can not fault a thing! Ideal for a walk into Ambleside and never too far from a car park (permit was much appreciated) Lovely kitchen and cosy living room, the roll top bath is the cherry on the top!

  • Edward says:

    Gorgeous little cottage situated close to the car park where you can park with the included permit. Ideally situated for many different walks around Ambleside and the rest of the Lake District

  • Noemie says:

    Great little cosey cottage in the heart of Ambleside. A quick walk to everything. The parking permit was incredibly useful even if you are going to nearby areas! Just a note that the building does have low water pressure so the shower head isn’t very powerful. Would still recommend staying here!

  • Jennifer says:

    Fellcroft is a gem of a place to stay in Ambleside. Everything you need for a comfortable trip is provided, from a full kitchen to logs for the fire — even a selection of great movies (like the Cornetto Trilogy). And the location couldn’t have been better, set just off the main road, it’s minutes away from all restaurants and pubs. We spent a great week here hiking and exploring.

  • Stephen says:

    Lovely little 3 story cottage in a perfect location within the town centre

  • James says:

    Home from home…every detail has been considered. All rooms are spacious and comfortable Two pubs a mere stones throw away…what more could you ask for? I usually base myself in Windermere while visiting the Lakes but I think Ambleside will be my new go to spot The parking permit for the large car park around the corner is a big bonus and the welcome hamper was a nice touch I would definitely stay at Fellcroft again.

  • James says:

    Overall a nice stay in Fellcroft cottage. It’s situated right in the centre of Ambleside, next to lots of shops and restaurants. This does mean that parking isn’t available, however a permit is provided which can be used in three, 24-hour car parks (if you can find a space). The cottage is warm and was very clean upon arrival, with a fully-equipped kitchen. We also particularly liked the bath in the bedroom, which was a nice touch. Being so close to bars does mean noise from karaoke and drunk people walking home, so I’d suggest bringing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper. It would have been nice to have a few things to help us settle in quicker, like hand soap, shower gel, shampoo etc which we had to go and buy from Co-op. Being an older property, there are a few other quirks such as low water pressure however, this isn’t a huge issue, just something to bear in mind. I would consider staying here again in the future.

  • Robin says:

    Fabulous company! So easy to book and Fellcroft cottage was a little hidden treasure!
    Great location and everything was perfect!
    I have already recommended Lakeland Retreats to
    Friends and Family and we will definitely book through them again!
    Thanks for a fantastic weekend.

  • Laura Patrick says:

    We spent 3 nights in the amazing Fellcroft.
    It is the perfect base for exploring the local area. Close to the many pubs, restaurants and shops! The cottage has so many original features and is tastefully decorated, with everything you could possibly need! We cannot wait to return and will highly recommend Fellcroft and Lakeland retreats to friends and family.. thank you again.

  • Thomas says:

    We had a great time at the cottage, with the bath a real bonus! Everything was as described and more and we had a perfect restful few days. The location is great, really close to everything you could need, whilst still quiet and easy to access some fabulous walks around the area (we walked past the caves and into Grasmere which was great!). The place was clean, warm and cosy and check-in/check-out was super straightforward. Having the car permit was also super handy with Ambleside otherwise very busy for parking! Would recommend for anyone looking for a quiet getaway!!

  • Kirsty says:

    Lovely cozy cottage, really close to everything Ambleside has to offer. Well equipped

    We absolutely loved the cottage, it had everything we needed and was a stones throw from all of the shops/pubs/restaurants as well as the fantastic walks. Everything was very well organised including keys and parking pass and the bottle of Prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch! We will be visiting again 🙂

  • Nathalie says:

    We had the best stay in the Lakes at Fellcroft. It was lovely coming back and chilling after a long day walking in the mountains. It felt like a home from home and was the perfect location – right in the heart of Ambleside. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. We couldn’t have wished for anything more. We will definitely be back!

  • Lucy says:

    Fellcroft was a lovely cottage to stay in during our time at the Lakes. It had everything we needed and it was in a great location. It felt really homely coming back there after a day exploring. It was great having a parking permit.

  • Ali says:

    Charming, romantic cottage on 3 levels with 2 flights of stairs. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of Ambleside, with many walks, shops, pubs and restaurants within easy reach. The downstairs stone floor is beautiful but cold – bring your slippers!

  • Ali says:

  • 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!

    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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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!
