    “It was a nice stay.”

    We had one sleepless night due to store sign below becoming unhinged and smashing against wall throughout night making it impossible to sleep. It was partially fixed but needs to be fully fixed. We notified store and hopefully they will fix it better so other guests don’t experience.

    We were really sorry to hear that you had a sleepless night due to the shop sign below coming unhinged. I have been in touch with the owner, who has assured me that he will look at it himself this week. Unfortunately he has had COVID and was isolating, and the shop staff had limited ability to fix it fully. We are so sorry that it disrupted your visit. We hope that otherwise you had an enjoyable stay, and please accept our apologies again. Best wishes, Hilary and Keith Property Owner

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.
