Cottage in Ambleside, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Hideawa Holiday Home, Only Two Minutes From Central Ambleside,
When we bought the property we thought it would be a good investment, however it very quickly became so much more. Over the years it has provided a very welcome escape from a hectic work schedule, I always return home feeling utterly relaxed, chilled and ready to face anything. Lots of family & friends have been able to enjoy holidays here, we've spent many hours around the dinner table sharing special times and all eagerly await a return invitation.
Owner purchased this House in 1998

Very enjoyable week. Really good location. Lovely views. Only reservation being the parking: there is parking but spaces were on a “first come first served” basis which meant we were not always able to park easily at the end f the day. We had not realised this when booking. Very prompt replies to questions.came from the owner.
Great central location
Clean comfortable stay. Great location. Parking can be a little restricted given demand for spaces. WIFI is a little weak as it shares from a neighbour, could do with its own as the kids needed for school stuff etc.
Enjoyable stay and the owner did everything she could to assist with any issues. Great location for Ambleside, steep stairs in the house but lovely views from the bedrooms.
I would definitely stay again. Darren Rose
Lovely cottage, three of us with dog was about the right size. Full amenities, except washing machine which would’ve been handy for a seven day walking holiday.
Owner very helpful with a speedy response when req’d, neighbours very friendly.
Parking was a big plus.
Thank you for your feedback Gary, it was much appreciated, I hope you had a safe journey home & look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Lovely cottage, beautiful views, great stay!
We had a lovely family holiday here. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with, the location was excellent and the views were superb. It's a shame that there was no washing machine (that would make it 5 stars!), but we would definitely recommend.
Thank you for your lovely review, we hope to see you return in the not too distant future.
Great view and great location but a couple of things worth knowing
Lovely stay, a homely cottage with great views and short walk down into Ambleside, perfect. But worth knowing beforehand that the property is on 3 floors with one long, very steep staircase - double bedroom on the first floor along with the bathroom - twin room and single room on the second floor, all those steep stairs not suitable for my 87 year old father to negotiate in the night (we had to give up the double room to him so he could be on the same floor as the bathroom) I would suggest not for very small children either - but great for everyone else! Very helpful and friendly lady next door explained the parking arrangements to us - this would be worth knowing beforehand as we were unsure where to park when we arrived (all spaces were taken)
Beautiful House - Beautiful Views
I cannot convey how beautiful Ambleside is and how handy staying at this wonderful cottage was. All shops & facilities are on your doorstep. Linda was so helpful with anything we asked which was fabulous, we had a lovely family meal at Lucy's on the Plate Restaurant (Lucy the owner was such a FUN Character) which was highly recommended. We would definitely return to Blue Hills Cottage. Family & Pet Friendly.
Thank you so much for such a lovely review, you’ll be welcome back at Bluehill cottage anytime
