Great Getaway that we've used on several occasions over the years.
You feel welcome from the start with pretty flowers and a bottle of wine from the owner. - a nice touch.
Great location for all the family; shops, pubs, restaurants, cinema, tennis, golf and lake adventures.
Up-to-date and very comfortable ; bikes in the cellar where we wash our mucky kit and an outdoor area to bask and relax. We have a great sleep here with cosy, fresh beds.
We even had a birthday dinner and cake in the kitchen which is well-appointed!
We'll be back again for more R&R.
We are really enjoying our time here. The weather is perfect and Ambleside is a good centre for walking and exploring. The house is comfortable but is on 4 floors with steep stairs. Fine for us but others might struggle. The walk up from the town centre is along a quiet footpath and is less than 5 minutes but is steep as the previous reviewer mentioned. We did enjoy being close but out of the way though. Agree with the comments about the garden, but has a good washing line and access through back garden gate onto footpath linking to Stockghyll woods and Wansfell walks. Good fast wifi but very small TV with DVD player but no DVDs and no games for wet days. Comfy beds and nice bathrooms and very clean. Nice big dining kitchen but some of the appliances in the kitchen (top oven didn't work and display on microwave was faulty) didn't work properly and several of the lights in the kitchen were out of order. No clocks at all. We also missed scissors. Good space for washing, drying and ironing in cellar.

The garden description is inaccurate,it is very steep and unsuitable for children to play in,the wooden furniture is in fact steel,terrace too far from house for al fresco dining.
The house is 3 minutes from shops and restaurants but is not a stroll,as described,it is a very steep(approx 1/10 ) path and steps.
House has good facilities,beds were comfortable,Ambleside a good centre to explore the Lakes.
