    Lovely accommodation within walking distance of Ambleside and local amenities. Decent sized double bedrooms and perfect lounge and kitchen space for a few days to enjoy the Lake District. Thanks for a lovely stay.”

  • Julian says:

    A lovely home ideally situated between the town centre and the waters edge. Dedicated parking really useful – although the car didn’t move! We went everywhere on foot which was a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend

  • Lindsay says:

    This is a lovely property in a great location close to all amenities

  • James says:

    “This property was great. Very clean, a good amount of room and an excellent location. Being so near great hiking routes was fantastic, and when the weather wasn’t so great we were kept entertained with the boardgames and books available. I would definitely recommend this place. The host was very good at communicating too.”

  • Hannah says:

    Really lovely stat over new year. Just what we were after with the dogs. All very clear and helpful, left tea and coffee for us which is always much needed after a long drive! Beautiful bedroom and good location to walk into town. Thank you

  • Steve says:

    Lovely little house about 10 minutes walk from town centre. Everything was perfect.

  • James says:

    A cosy house in a good location

  • Ana says:

    clean and comfortable, great location

  • Andrew says:

    A lovely place to stay and in a great location. Any questions we had were answered quickly and efficiently.

  • Brenda says:

    This cottage is absolutely super! Really homely & cosy. A five minute walk into Ambleside for really great restaurants & amenities. Great base for exploring the lakes. This is my second time here & I look forward to returning again next year!

  • Joan says:

    Great place to stay while visiting the Lake District. Convenient walk to local restaurants and shops. Clean and well stocked. Would definitely stay again!

  • Margaret says:

    You can’t go wrong selecting this wonderful house in a perfect location. Ambleside has a great deal to offer in terms of good restaurants, access to hiking, and other local attractions. We found the best bread bakery to be a few miles up the road at Chesters. A woman in Granny Smiths, the local health food store, sent us there. Enjoy your stay. Margaret, a walker and foodie

  • Lorraine says:

    Fantastic views , great location even though it’s on top of a hill , very well equipped kitchen , very clean . Loads of great restaurants in Ambleside .

  • Lee says:

    Spotless & homely, we loved our stay at Fisherbeck. Essentials such as cleaning products and linens all left out for us along with the special touch of the owners supporting a local charity through small change donations if you break any glasses! Appliances were all quality brands and easy to use. WiFi has great reception throughout. The location is great with a short walk into town. Even with the hill it’s manageable. Ambleside is full of gorgeous places to eat, but we’d recommend booking in busy season if you’re out for dinner! We’d recommend Misto for a stylish, but laid back family friendly Italian and the Copper Pot for a stunning breakfast. There’s so much to do with kids too in the area, we could have done with another few days to visit all the places we wanted to – we’ll definitely be back!”

  • Carole says:

    Lovely house in a great location for walking and close to all the lovely restaurants in Ambleside

  • Nicholas says:

    Fisherbeck is a wonderful place to stay when visiting the Lake District. It is a couple blocks from the hustle and bustle of Ambleside and provides sweeping views from the balcony of the surrounding area. Additionally, if you leave your windows open at night you can be woken up by bleating sheep and singing birds. My wife and I fell in love with the Lake District during this stay and staying in Fisherbeck helped facilitate that. Down to brass tacks, the place was extremely clean and well cared for. We appreciated all the amenities, including the washer/dryer combo. All the furniture is comfortable and clean. We would gladly stay again. A note for people who may have trouble getting around: Fisherbeck is on a hill and there are a number of stairs in the home. This shouldn’t be a surprise as it’s in the Lake District and all

  • Margherita says:

    Lovely Stay. Great location: quiet and at a walking distance from the town center and the lake. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed for our weekend. Great space for a weekend for two couples or a family.

  • Kate says:

    It’s was a great location and a nice place to stay

  • Elre says:

    Such a lovely home. Would highly recommend this to everyone out there looking for a weekend in the Lakes

  • Loic says:

    We had a lovely stay in one of the cottages in Ambleside, slightly off the main road for more privacy and tranquility but within walking distance of all the town’s amenities. We liked the small front and back terraces as well as the good equipment in the kitchen. If we were to stay in Ambleside once again we would probably return to this place.

  • Amanda says:

    Arriving on Saturday night we found the keys thoughtfully arranged in the key box in arrival order. The cottage was perfect for the needs of a mother, a tween and Echo, our collie cross. It was clean and comfortable. A short walk up the hill took us to the path to the waterfalls. A good selection of dvds were perfect for rainy days.

  • Juliet says:

    A cosy clean cottage in a great location just a very short walk into Ambleside. There was everything we needed at the cottage and enjoyed our stay. Thank you

  • James says:

    Great location, great facilities very clean and furnishings are excellent!

  • Ann says:

    We really enjoyed our 3 night break at Fisherbeck Cottage. It was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The views were lovely and it was just a 5 minute walk into Ambleside.

  • Greg says:

    Quiet, yet very near the centre of Ambleside. Lovely house and super convenient parking right outside the door
