    Wonderful cottage – cosy and comfy and perfect for families. Great location and had a wonderful stay

    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.

    We loved our stay at the cottage. It’s perfectly located, very stylish and has great amenities. It was great to be able to collect the keys from the key safe two minutes away too. Communication was fantastic and the directions to find the cottage were very helpful. It’s location is perfect for the Brathay/Windermere marathon too

  • Paul says:

    We had a family birthday weekend at Herald Cottage and we all really enjoyed it. The house is well maintained, clean, great kitchen with all mod cons. The sauna was fun and well worth a go even in June after a days walking. The drive through the alley way to park up is tight for a wider car and that’s the only downside. Its a recommend from us !!
