    Many thanks to you all at Lakeland Retreats for making our recent stay at Riverside Cottage so enjoyable and memorable. We were delighted to receive our hamper which included a lovely ginger cake, shortbread biscuits and fresh bread and butter and jam.They were all enjoyed throughout our stay. Thank you so much for the wonderful service we received. We really appreciated all that Riverside Cottage had to offer, the espresso machine, the fluffy towels, how clean it was everywhere, the beautiful garden and location and are so grateful to you all for all the care that was put into making it all so lovely for us. We had a great stay and so did our golden retriever Sammy.

  • Lewis says:

    Fantastic location for walks and very close to Ambleside itself. Nice touches on arrival with bread and amenities already there. Lovely little cottage.

  • Rosie says:

    This is a gorgeous little cottage positioned right next to Skelworth Bridge on the river. The local scenery is breathtaking and we managed several fabulous walks right from the doorstep. The cottage is small – perfect for us two and our dog- but well equipped. Michelle was a great host and responded very quickly to any emails. We had a fabulous, relaxing stay with some brilliant walks and I’d definitely recommend this place to stay.
