  • Stayed at Heartings cottage for the half term week with family and our dog. The cottage has everything you need and is well maintained and is in a great location for walking into Ambleside and for walking to Grasmere, Wansfell and the surrounding area. Would definately recommend this cottage and will hopefully returning for another stay in the future.
