    • “Perfection in every way -Location and accommodation.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed here from Friday 5th May for 1 week. The location is perfect for walking and access to the centre of Ambleside. There is safe parking for one car at the property off road so there is no need to drive anywhere.The accommodation is immaculate, spotlessly clean and of a very high modern quality. The furniture is very comfortable and the new memory foam mattress very difficult to leave in the morning.There is wi-fi and a good sized tv. There is a very smart kitchen/dining room , plenty of storage, china ,cutlery etc. The bathroom is very clean and looks brand new. The cupboards are full of cleaning materials. We were very sorry to leave after only a week. Thank you for letting us bring our parrot too.The garden is beautiful with seating and a barbque. We can find no faults at all.”

    • “Comfortable, well equipped accommodation, friendly owners”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Our experience at Long Crag was completely different from that of the previous (and only other) reviewer on tripadvisor. We found the owners to be friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very comfortbale, clean, well equipped and warm. The wifi worked continuously while we were there, and there was milk in the (large) fridge! The visitors book was full of glowing references from people who had returned two or three times. The location, just five minutes walk from the Ambleside shops, was very convenient, and we had a lovely view of the local fells from our window.”

    • “Lovely apartment, very comfortable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The apartment is in a good location for walking into Ambleside for the restaurants in the evening. Only one little thing missing, an electric socket near the mirror for the hair dryer to be plugged into. We went out and bought an extension lead. Otherwise it is very well equipped and the bed is mega comfortable!”

    • “Lovely location, clean and tidy, warm and cozy. Though the neighbours upstairs were rather noisy. We enjoyed our selves.”

    Mr Hodgkiss, Shrewsbury, November 2018

    • “Shower was under powered Heating controls not good, could not turn off radiator in the bedroom”

    Mr Dando, Seaton, June 2018

    • “The only negative for me was that there was not an enclosed garden for the dog but I should have checked this before booking. I did find a very nice park within walking distance of the property where I could have the dog off lead.”

    Mrs Chatfield, DURHAM, May 2018

    • “The property though advertised as an apartment isnt a purpose built apartment. It was originally a house that has been converted to 2 apartment. The top floor is all wooden floor board. We had a terrible time while there. From 6am until 11pm the tenant upstairs were stomping around, dragging and throw objects around. We downstairs paid the brunt of that house. At some point we thought the ceiling was going to crave in with all that throwing and dragging. Their washing machine at 2200 shook the entire ceiling in the bathroom. When their dog ran around the apartment we could not only hear the stomping but also the pores scrapping the floor boards. We came from London for peace and quiet but we got more stress. The location of this place is good, inside is clean and with good facilities, only issue is the tenant upstairs. Despite several complaints they took no heed. DONT use this apartment if you want some respite and peace.”

    Ms Bisran, Isleworth, October 2018

    • “Nice central location for exploring the Lake District. Parking the car and getting off the drive again is a nightmare, puts you off going again. Was very noisy in the accompanying flat, we were glad that the lady moved out on the Wednesday but loads of noise till late at night from the removal men also, spoilt the evening, although a lady from Skye’s had called to warn us beforehand. Nice bedroom, but no plug sockets any where near the mirror so I had to buy an extension lead so my wife could plug her hairdryer in. Bed not very comfortable, it’s like sleeping on a slope. Also to appeal to families there could be a sofa bed in the lounge. Kitchen facilities good, strange choice of crockery and cutlery though. Washing machine you need a degree in nuclear science to be able to use it, we eventually sussed out the microwave and cooker bit our washing got stuck in the machine for three days before we could figure out how to open the door! Would be brilliant for an elderly couple as bus stops are very close by, and they could use the free OAP bus passes to explore the Lakes. Car parking charges around the Lake District are extortionate and it costs 40p to use the toilets in many towns!”

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.
