    Auton Family

  • Having two lively young boys, myself and my wife found our stay at Heather cottage, Ambleside a lovely experience. The weather was reasonably kind for us with only one day being rained off. Even so the facilities at the cottage were excellent, a real home from home. The boys loved the cottage and the location was excellent for trips out or long walks. Would definitely visit again.

  • Very well equipped and comfortable and all in a wonderful location, I could carry on saying wonderful things about this cottage.
