We visited with a dear friend. She's in her 80s, and the stairs up to the first floor (the main floor of the apartment) were a bit of a challenge for her, but once up she was delighted to have a lovely ensuite room on that level. Being up a level from the road made it very quiet. The kitchen is very well equipped and the living room very comfortable. The ensuite master upstairs was perfect. We were pleased that everything was so clean. The description which mentions that towels are not provided is out of date. They ARE provided -which was important to us since we traveled from the US. The location is perfect for exploring Ambleside on foot, but out of the hustle and bustle. Off-site parking is a bit of a walk, but was not a problem for us. Unfortunately, living in the US, we probably won't be able to get back, but if we could, we would!
