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

  • 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.

  • James says:

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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Kate says:

  • 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.

  • 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

    Lovely house in a great location for walking and close to all the lovely 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!”

    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 .

  • 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
