    “So on arrival carpets dirty and not cleaned, cob webs all over the flat and spiders had to Hoover and clean the floors myself and move the sofas to clean under them as food debris under them, with hole in the floor in the living room when standing in front of the window the carpet disappears in a hole in the floorboards.”

    No light bulbs in the lamp and dust and dirt. ...

    No light bulbs in the lamp and dust and dirt. Beds have urine stains on the mattress in both main bedroom and the blue bedroom with tiny window. Shower cubicle door falls off and hits whoever is getting into the shower and have to hold shower head to turn on shower or sprays out the cubicle onto the floor, no water in taps in main bathroom sink taps don’t turn on and when do trickle. En suite bathroom no water pressure and no hot water due to can’t turn off the bathroom tap constantly trickling out into the bath. When you override the hot water still nothing so cold baths during the week. Toilet brushes have seen better days and haven’t been changed in a long time, looks like someone has been using the toilet brush for cleaning themselves and holder full of dirty water with fecal matter in the holders and over the brush, considering we are still in a pandemic not very hygienic. Mattress in en suite bedroom gone home and very uncomfortable no support and bed squeaks when turning over on it, chair in bedroom stained along with cushions, no pillow protectors on the pillows so sweat marks on pillows. Middle bedroom bed held up by 2 by 4 wood cable tied to the bed frame supporting the bed and keeping it up. Wasps nest in the roof outside bedroom windows overlooking the hills and mountains so can’t open the windows without letting in wasps to the flat. Windows cracked in bedrooms Did report using online complaint but no feed back and been home 2 days from holiday so far never stay at this apartment again (Apart from this nice views and great wildlife downstairs with dears and badgers and red squirrels in garden.)

About the location


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.
