I stayed here for a week in August '15. Ambleside is a great central place to stay as it's only a stone's throw from my favourite place in the Lakes: the stunning Langdales, minutes from Windermere Waterhead on foot and only a short drive from Keswick.
The cottage itself is lovely: well equipped with everything you'd need, beautifully renovated and a great place to come back to after a long day's walking. Margaret, the owner, maintained regular contact and was very amenable when I wanted to change my booking.
The only downside was it took me two attempts on the one way system round Ambleside to find it!
This is an absolutely wonderful cottage, the only bad part about it was having to leave and come home at the end of the weekend.
I went to Ambleside to cheer on my best friend in the Great North Swim in Windermere and stayed with 3 other ladies in the cottage. It was cosy and full of character. A stones throw from the center of Ambleside and in the other direction and very close is lake Windermere. I'm a keen walker and there are some excellent walks in this area too. Margaret and Graham, the owners, were absolutely wonderful and are always happy to help if you need them.
I can't recommend this cottage enough, it's fabulous!

Had a fantastic time at this beautiful cottage, immaculate and very welcoming- very much home from home, had everything we needed for our weekend, very central location, shops/ bars/ restaurants within walking distance. Cottage owners Margaret and Graham were great- so helpful in pointing us in the right direction of activities and places to visit. Would highly recommend this cottage and will definitely be back soon! Thanks again Margaret and Graham xx
