    I took my girlfriend to the Lake District for Valentine’s Day and asked Michelle to find some red roses the day after Valentine’s Day and she went above and beyond and came up trumps – massive thanks from me for that! Also had a nice little hamper with some treats inside.

  • Edward says:

    Super cute cottage nestled in alongside the River Rothay. It was a perfect size and had everything 2 people needed for a week. The bedroom is upstairs from the living area which is great for people who don’t go to sleep/get up at the same time. The kitchen is really well stocked with pots/pans/knives, and not just old leftovers either – good quality. The best touch was an amazing welcome hamper with food from the area and a fun Cumbria cookbook for us to try out!

    If you are looking for a wonderful location to spend time in the Lakes District look no further that Middledeck. Michelle had great communication with us and the hamper of local produce was unexpected but beautiful. Located within walking distance to Ambleside. Overall a wonderful holiday

    Nice, small apartment next to a lovely stream. It’s also next to a busy road, but the apartment is well insulated and there is not a lot of noise. At night, the road is not busy at all, so there is no problem. It’s a 10 minute walk into the Center of Ambleside, so the car can stay in the provided free parking

  • Dan says:

    Cozy space in a fantastic location. The bread, jam, and wine were a nice touch to welcome us. Would recommend to any couple looking for a getaway.

  • Claire says:

    Gorgeous little cottage, amazing location and beautifully clean. We had a wonderful stay here

  • Kristen says:

    Perfect little cottage for a weekend holiday. Within easy walking distance to town as well as Ambleside Pier. The back garden is quiet with a creek running next to it. The cottage itself was lovely with a nice sitting area/kitchen and then a bedroom upstairs. Nice entrance out on to the road that has you in to town on foot in 5 minutes or so. Would definitely stay again!
