    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.

    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.

  • 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 !!

    “Lovely cottage in a great location with everything you need for a relaxing stay.

  • Sharmila says:

    We were group of 8 friends. We had a good time at Herald cottage. Windermere lake, shops and restaurants were at walking distance. The cottage was clean and the common area was nice and cozy. The sauna was great too. The only problem was one of our cars was big so we had a difficult time parking as the road leading to the cottage was narrow. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Herald cottage.”

  • Carolyn says:

    This is an amazing house, brilliantly located in Ambleside. We had 3 generations staying, 4 adults and 3 children, and we never felt cramped or on top of each other. It was lovely and clean with lots of towels and the boot/drying room came in very handy with the weather over the weekend! One thing I will mention is the parking, it is extremely tight to get back out of the courtyard (I scraped all down one door!) so if you’re driving anything wider or longer than a BMW X2 be super careful!! I would definitely stay here again, I just won’t park there
