  • “There is quite obviously a problem with damp/mold/mildew within the property as the first thing you notice on entering is the overwhelming musty smell.”

    This is predominant in the lounge and bedroom. We did have windows open to ventilate as my husband is asthmatic. ...

    This is predominant in the lounge and bedroom. We did have windows open to ventilate as my husband is asthmatic. The bathroom in particular has a major problem with mold being all over the privacy screen at the window. We didn't even attempt to touch it as it looked so bad. There is no means of steam extraction in the bathroom except for using the window but as the property is right on the main street, you have to be fully clothed before opening and closing the window. I would think a privacy glass plastic film would be better for the windows here rather than the moldy roller blind. It's a shame about the musty smell in the property as it's in a great location and is the perfect size for a couple's getaway.

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.
