    “This was our first visit to the Lake District and we deliberately chose accommodation in the centre of Ambleside so that we could easily access local amenities.”

    The apartment is small, but perfect for 2 people. It is well equipped and is a few doors down from 2 local convenience stores, so easy to stock up on essentials. Although the weekends were busy with visitors (we stayed in June), we were pleasantly surprised by how relatively quiet it was during the week, especially considering that the bedroom and living room both face onto the main street.

    The apartment is small, but perfect for 2 people. It is well equipped and is a few doors down from 2 local convenience stores, so easy to stock up on essentials. Although the weekends were busy with visitors (we stayed in June), we were pleasantly surprised by how relatively quiet it was during the week, especially considering that the bedroom and living room both face onto the main street. Parking space behind the building was easy enough to negotiate for a small/medium sized car (ours is a Toyota Yaris) and it’s worth mentioning that there is back access to the accommodation as well as going round the front. Also worth mentioning that finding the parking space initially was a little tricky as there is no signage on the road and the apartment name is only visible once you have gone down the slope into the entrance. This is also the case at the front entry to the building, as there is no apartment name on the door or bell pushes. Suggest it may be worth including the house name in the entry instructions? Otherwise, pick up and drop off of keys was very easy, including drop off after hours. Would definitely recommend, thank you.

    Thank you very much for your helpful feedback, and we are very pleased to hear you enjoyed staying at Tom Heights with its central position in Ambleside. We have noted your suggestions with regard to finding the property initially, and will look to see if we can make that clearer. Kind regards, 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.
