  • Ross says:

    Had a great stay at the cottage! We were a group of eight adults and the size was perfect. All rooms were clean and tidy. Located in the centre of Ambleside so very good for getting around the Lakes and having amenities on your doorstep. Would definitely recommend to others.

  • Max says:

    A fantastic base for a visit to the Lakes. Lakeland Retreats were brilliant; the house had absolutely everything; and it was in a brilliant location. Can’t recommend it more highly.
