    “Kirk stone was a very pretty and well equipped cottage with adequate parking right outside the door.”

    The cottage is right in Ambleside close to all amenities, shops, bars and restaurants; which are the positives! The negatives are: There wasn’t any where to put toiletries in the bathroom, an extra shelf would be advantageous, or a little table. Once we started to look around we felt the decor was a little tired! Damp stains and some peeling paint in the lounge, paint scratches all up the stairs and corrosion on the loo seat fittings and the shower surround. The bedroom ceiling was very ...

    The cottage is right in Ambleside close to all amenities, shops, bars and restaurants; which are the positives! The negatives are: There wasn’t any where to put toiletries in the bathroom, an extra shelf would be advantageous, or a little table. Once we started to look around we felt the decor was a little tired! Damp stains and some peeling paint in the lounge, paint scratches all up the stairs and corrosion on the loo seat fittings and the shower surround. The bedroom ceiling was very high and I’m sure difficult to get at, but it was dusty with cobwebs in the corners! ( not pleasant) We did have nice time, we were very lucky as the weather was practically Mediterranean. But those little things we’ve mentioned, definitely took the edge of the break!

    Thank you for staying in Kirkstone Cottage and we are sorry the cottage did not meet your expectations. As owners we do pride ourselves on the standards of our cottages and regularly decorate and update our cottages. Unfortunately due to the property being fully booked this year we have been unable to get in earlier to address the decorating, however this is currently being carried out. We hope we can welcome you back again in the future to see the finished result. Owner relations

About the location

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.

Note: This property accepts arrivals on Monday & Friday only.
