    “Lack of communication from Sykes regarding key collection.”

    The email regarding key collection did not arrive before we set off I had to ring HO to find out where to collect and was told the collection site shut @ 16.00hrs. The office was Lake Overs? Ambleside. Finding the cottage with no info not easy. The cottage was not trimmed up for Christmas ( disappointed) it was cold on entry. Lack of info from Sykes in the cottage . I will think twice before I use Sykes. Steve Budgen.

    - Steve, December 2021

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay. We apologise you did not recieve our two emails prompting you of the changes prior to your stay. We contacted you on the 13th December to make you aware that there were changes and we sent you another 7 days before your stay with the exact changes and new arrangements. Our office closes at 5.30pm so I am sorry that you were given the incorrect information here regarding opening times too. The key collection arrangement has recently changed and moved from pick up at Windermere to Ambleside to make it easier for guests going straight to Woolly End Cottage in Ambleside. We have re-looked at the directions and arrangements and have ensured they are clearer moving forward. Kind Regards, Property Owner

The property

Settled amongst the rural greenery of the Lake District National Park, in the picture-perfect town of Ambleside, rests this comfortable three-bedroom holiday home, Woolly End Cottage.

Tucked away on a quiet side road, this lovely Lakeland stone-built cottage makes an idyllic base for a group of fives retreat to Cumbria. Return from an adventure-filled day exploring the surrounding fells and look forward to settling down for the evening in front of the rustic woodburning stove in your new home-from-home, flicking on the Smart TV to catch up on your favourite show. When stomachs start to rumble, move through to discover the well-equipped kitchen tucked away at the rear, housing all of the essential amenities required to rustle up hearty meals, along with a handy washer/dryer to keep your holiday attire fresh and clean!

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together at the dining table to indulge in a delicious meal, and if you're not ready for the fun to end, venture outdoors to soak up the last of the evening sunshine with a seat on the patio. When sleep calls, you'll find two well-presented bedrooms on the first floor, comprising of a double and a twin, whilst a double bedroom is tucked away on the second floor, with a family bathroom set across the way.

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.
