    • “Excellent Cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This cottage is in a quiet courtyard just 2 minutes walk to the town centre. It has the added bonus of its own parking space. The cottage itself is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It makes an excellent base to explore the southern lakes. We did notice a slight doggy smell but only in the hallway - no problem whatsoever for us.”

    • “What a great little find this was. This cottage is in the perfect location,right in the centre but far enough away from the noise of ambleside , the cottage itself has everything you would need, small little drying room for your soggy walking gear washing machine wifi and a perfectly stocked kitchen . The cottage has a large bedroom with different mood lighting and a good bathroom with large bath and overhead shower ,with the added benefit of on site parking and closeness to the bus stop this is a little gem of a cottage perfect for that walking weekend in the lakes”

    • “Clear and easy to follow directions brought us to the delights of Juniper Cottage and the bonus of a specific parking space right outside the door. The cottage was clean and very well laid out and had everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We had taken our dog with us and there was a special rug to put down for him too. They was a great selection of Dvds, books and games and maps and information of the local area. Everything had been thought of. We particularly liked having a washer/drier and the kitchen was very well appointed and had everything in it you could need. It isn't a huge cottage but neither did it feel cramped at all and for a couple it was perfect. You didn't get the feeling at all that it had been filled with unwanted furniture or kitchen equipment from someone's main home as you can sometimes get in self catering places. Ambleside has just about everything you need on a daily basis with plenty of shops and eating out options and is very pleasant for a stroll around in the evening. As the whole courtyard the cottage is in is made up of holiday lettings there was no awkwardness of getting under the feet of locals, but you were still in the midst of the local town which was nice. The only slight point would be that the bathroom could do with an update at some point as it looks a little bit tired in places (especially the ceiling) and the shower isn't the most powerful in the world. But the bathtub is huge, the hot water plentiful and that is very welcome after a day on the fells. The bed was comfortable, but the lighting in the bedroom is quite dim especially compared to downstairs and the "mood lighting" didn't work. The bed had been made up but the bottom sheet was very creased and hadn't been put on properly and the towels provided were a bit thin. Overall though we were delighted with our choice and had a very enjoyable stay and will undoubtedly be back in the future.”

    • “The cottage was very well resourced and comfortable. It is sited very close to the centre of ambleside but away from the crowds. Everything you needed was in the cottage, TV, DVD, Music system, internet access (Wi-Fi)and all of the necessary equipment - washer/drier, dishwasher, microwave etc.”

    • “Everything you need from a weekend cottage. Great location a couple of mins walk to the main town and off street parking which was great as other stays we have done in ambleside you have to use the public car parks. Will definitely look it up again when we next visit ambleside.”

It was centrally located in the town so everywhere was easily accessible. We loved the bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped and the sitting area comfortable.”

    • “Being visitors to The Lake District for many years, this year we decided to stay in the centre of ambleside. We couldn't have chosen a better cottage or a better location. The cottage was everything you would expect - clean and well equipped. We were close to the town centre but also close to a couple of parks so we could take our dogs for an early morning / late evening run around (walking in the hills all day wasn't enough for them!!). Brilliant cottage, brilliant location, brilliant holiday. The only downside was that there was no back garden, but hey, we worked round that.”

    • “We found the cottage very clean and well equipped for all our needs. The cottage was in an excellent location within easy access to lots of restaurants and pubs also near the bus stop. We liked the fact that there was a number of walks to choose from that started from ambleside. What we liked least was the cottage was a little dark downstairs, you needed the lights on most of the time.”

    • “Everything was superb could not find fault Juniper Cottage in Ambleside take a bow .”

    Mr Goulden, Warrington, November 2018

    • “Lovely cottage in a great location. Very clean with really good facilities.”

    Mr Stevens, York, October 2018

    • “I loved the fact that as well as being lovely and clean, it was fantastically equipped. There were even baking tins and scales - I could have baked a cake if I'd had time. We had our own parking, it was within walking distance of the town, and was quiet and peaceful. The furnishings were comfortable and clean and the bedroom was lovely. It was great to come 'home' to at the end of a day on the fells. The lobby had shelves for our boots & rucksacks and there was a radiator too, so that our things dried, without cluttering the rest of the house up.”

    Mrs Godman, Rochdale, October 2018

    • “The cottage was as it was described, very comfortable , clean and ideally situated for us. Close to all local amenities and on site parking was an advantage. Only slight disappointment was in regards supplies. We had one toilet roll for two people for a week. We had a third of a kitchen roll and a small amount of washing up liquid. We didn’t have any soap powder. With other cottages there has always been an adequate supply of such items, not sure if that’s what we should expect. That said it didn’t spoil our holiday and have already booked another holiday for 2019 with Sykes Cottages.”

    Mr Cairns, Hartlepool, October 2018

    • “Beautiful setting ,just outside Ambleside ,a two minute easy walk into the town centre and a ten minute walk to the banks of Windermere. The house has private parking in the courtyard with plenty of room to load unload. The House is plenty big enough for a couple and two dogs ,perfect . Everything you require is included ,the bedroom is fantastic ,a massive Television ,lovely welcoming double bed and very warm and cosy. We had a fantastic break.”

    Mr Reynolds, Nottingham, September 2018

    • “The cottage is a lovely place to stay to use as a base for traveling around the lakes it was in a nice area of town, very quiet but with within very easy reach of all the shops, bars and cafes. Would recommend this place to family and friends.”

    Mrs Cliff, Rotherham, August 2018

    • “Cottage was lovely,clean and warm and we would definitely stay there again. My only slight issue was the note that was left to strip the bed linen on departure. I think it is reasonable to ask visitors to leave the cottage clean and tidy but it is unreasonable to expect them to have to do everything as you would expect the property to be re-cleaned thoroughly before the next guests arrive. There are hotels that charge less money and you would not be expected to do that for them.”

Regional Information

AMBLESIDE Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles. Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
