    • “Gorgeous apartment in an ideal location”

    • “This apartment was perfect for a relaxing break in Ambleside and was right in the centre of the town. We could easily walk a few minutes to find lovely restaurants for evening meals (I would recommend Lucy's on a plate - especially if it's a special occasion and if so, make sure you book and mention that you're celebrating!) It took about 15 minutes to walk to Lake Windermere from the apartment where we caught a boat to Bowness on Windermere. The apartment itself was such a lovely place to stay if you like a little luxury, from the huge flat screen television to the jacuzzi bath (even though we had some difficulty with the warm water to fill up the bath) - these details gave our stay an extra sparkle, and was the perfect place to open up a bottle of wine after a day of walking or visiting the nearby towns.”

    • “Excellent accommodation in Ambleside”

    • “We have stayed here twice now and it suits us perfectly as it is right in the middle of Ambleside and close to its bars and restaurants but also many walks can be started from here, such as the Fairfield Horseshoe. Yes, the access may not suit some, but if you are a fell walker it shouldn't bother you in the slightest. The flat itself is very comfortable and quite spacious for a family of four . There can be some street noise, but if you are in the middle of Ambleside, what do you expect? We would recommend for sociable fell walkers!”

    • “Loughrigg View is a spacious, stylish, contemporary, warm apartment slap bang in the heart of ambleside. Why not try Thai, Italian, Indian or traditional pub fayre all within a minutes walk. Better still combine your meal with a trip to the little cinema. You really don't need your car - walks to Troutbeck, Langdale, Grasmere and several classic fells can all be done from the door or you could take the boat trip around the lake. We've stayed at dozens of locations around the lakes but provided you don't mind a little early morning traffic noise and can manage the access stairs, this place has got so much going for it.”

    • “We stayed at end of Nov.beginning of Dec and found the cottage to be warm and inviting as well as being stylish and modern.The fact that there are two bathrooms was an added bonus. All mod cons including a dishwasher ensured we could make good use of our time for things we wanted to do.Could not have asked for a more central location,and the parking space is another bonus. The steps to front door may be a problem if taking young children or for anyone slightly infirm,but gave us a bit more exercise. Overall a delightful place and have already recommended to several friends.”

    • “We arrived at the apartment in pouring rain so it wasn't much fun getting up the outside stairs (fire eascape) but when we opened the door we were thrilled and relieved. We spent just a few days at the Loughrigg and were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and comfortable it was. With two good size bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one on suite), a large TV and lovely kitchen we felt it was just the ticket! It is right in the centre of ambleside in the one way system, and a little difficult to find initially. If you have a big car then getting between the buildings and narrow parking space might be difficult but I only have a Peugeot 206. Two of us were keen hikers and enjoyed the proximity to walks nearby and there was a garden centre within walking distance which was worth a visit. It was a central and perfect spot for driving round the Lakes and visiting Hawkshead, Grasmere and Keswick However I would not recommend it to any elderly people who might have trouble climbing the stairs or with young infants. One of the restaurants opposite had music on Saturday night but all was quiet again by the time we went to bed so it didn't bother us. Would love to sty there again.”

    • “Excellent place for both walkers and non walkers”

    • “My husband and I are regular hikers in the Lakes and were introducing our hobby to our friends (also married). The apartment was a luxury for the weekend. It was well equipped with kitchen utensils and entertainment facilities. Excellent location for not only some great walks but also the vast array of bars and restaurants that Ambleside has to offer. It also had its' own free parking space which is had to come by in the area. Only downside is that the ceilings/ floorboards of the upstairs apartment are quite thin so we woken by little kids running around - earplugs solved the problem though. Overall, highly recommended.”

    • “Very comfortable apartment in a great location for walkers.”

    • “This apartment is very nice - the kitchen is good, the beds are comfortable, the view from the living room is really nice - it's a nice set of hills, not Loughrigg, but even better! - the furniture is comfortable, good appliances everywhere. The only thing that is a negative about the apartment itself is the entrance - it's up an external staircase that is effectively the fire escape. This can lead to tricky footing if there is any frost (yes, it got that cold in May) or wet, and it is not easy to negotiate a big or heavy suitcase up those stairs. But if you're fit enough to walk up the hills, you should make it. Then you can collapse into the comfort of the apartment. I'd like to warn visitors from the US that the type of washer/dryer in the apartment can take a very long time to wash and dry clothes, so plan well in advance. On the other hand, the dishwasher is superior to any I have used in the US. The company that services the apartment does not provide bath towels, which is a slight inconvenience. You might need to purchase extra toilet rolls. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. One last thing - we got a taxi from Windermere station to the apartment, our taxi driver used to be a postman in Ambleside and even he couldn't find it from the directions that were given to us. They need to be improved and updated.”

    • “Had a great week? Kids loved the place. Very well furnished and finished. Love the split level. Convenient for town centre and the bus stop. It might rain but my kids love the open top bus ride between Grassmere and Windermere and to be honest so do the grown ups. It's a bit of a narrow entry with the car but once you get used to it, its fine. Would certainly look to book again. Booking was easy and straightforward. No problems and everything was as described. Thank you.”

    • “Fantastic Apartments in the heart of Ambleside”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Have just returned from a long weekend in the Lake District. The apartment was beautifully decorated and had a fantastic location in the centre of Ambleside. We left our car on Friday and didn't use it again until Sunday. We did a great walk up to Grassmere for a day and spent the rest of the time pottering around the shops and great tea rooms and restaurants in Ambleside. The apartment was really well equipped, showers were powerful and the beds were really comfortable with snuggly down duvets and pillows. Fantastic apartment would highly recommend! It also caters well for groups of friends as it is possible to rent the apartment next door.”

    • “The pictures do not do this apartment justice as it was really amazing. The views from the apartment balcony were great and it was in the town center which was perfect exploring the area. The service received was great and the booking procedure was seamless. The apartment was set up nicely for our arrival with everything in place. It is in ambleside town center which is on the banks of Lake Windermere. The only slightly negative comment I would make is that the directions included were not upto date and we were looking for landmarks that had been closed down. Other than that slight negative we found the apartment perfect.”

    • “Despite a slightly odd rear entrance to the property via the fire escape, what unfolded inside was very good indeed. Comfortable accommodation in all respects, with an eye for detail regarding the needs of visitors. Very clean, with generously sized bedrooms/ bathroom. Of course the excellent weather helped! Definitely recommend to family and friends and would return ourselves. A good find by our friends.”

    • “The apartment was large with plenty of room for the four of us. It was immaculately clean with comfortable beds and plenty of storage. It's in a brilliant location, very central for the town. Only downside was a couple of drawers in bedroom needed repairing and some late night noise from lily bar across the road but we would definitely stay again.”

    Mr Gardner, Shipston-on-Stour, October 2018

    • “Fantastic location, well equipped appartment. Only downside - could hear noisy people in the flat next door from time to time quite late, but did not spoil our stay.”

    Mrs Grafton, Woolacombe, October 2018

    • “Very clean well-equipped apartment in excellent location in middle of town. Slightly noisy at times due to traffic and parking space a bit tight.”

    Mr Bleach, Slough, October 2018

    • “Loughrigg View was a great holiday cottage for our recent trip to Ambleside. Location was perfect for all the shops and facilities in the heart of Ambleside. It did however mean that there was noise from the main road outside, it didn’t however cause too much disruption. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need and more, we will certainly be back!”

    Miss Fenton, Stevenage, September 2018

    • “It was a really good apartment, and all as described. A small welcome pack (milk etc. would have been nice, most cottages we have rented included this. It may be worth pointing out in the description that the apartment is on a busy junction with quite a bit of road noise, and is opposite a bar (The Lilly) which is open very late and pretty noisy if you have the windows open in summer”

    Mr Cameron, Poole, July 2018

    • “Only that it is not clear in description about the 23 outside metal steps up to the property. The property would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues . Even somebody with bad knees would struggle.”

    Mrs Elwick, Northampton, May 2018

    • “Pleased with the property. Good location. Comfortable and clean. Well equipped kitchen. Only annoying thing was the kitchen units' plinth kept falling off!”

    Mr Hawkins, Wokingham, April 2018

    • “The apartment is in a fantastic location handy for everything.We went for a mixture of walks and relaxation and were not disappointed.Would recommend this apartment very highly.”

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.
