Cosy and warm with a nice outdoor area

  • 4 of 5

Generally the accommodation was of a reasonable standard. It was warm and cosy, but fairly small. The location was excellent for getting to the lake, boats etc. Ambleside was a short drive or walk away.

There were 3 things that I felt were not great. Firstly the hot water it took an age to get hot and then it was barely more than a dribble. Secondly, the blind in the kitchen was broken, there was a note which looked as though it had been there for some time. Thirdly, I don't know if we were unlucky but there was a lot of noise from upstairs (sounded at times as if they were dragging chairs.

All in all we had a good time and the accommodation was fine, access to the property could be difficult for people with mobility problems.

Cozy, comfortable and we'll laid out.

  • 4 of 5

Our second stay here, a very pleasant flat for two. The only real issue is the lack of soundproofing; every step above sounds like banging on the ceiling and the folks above us snoring was difficult to sleep through. Still, a very comfortable place to call home for a week.

Our holiday heaven

  • 5 of 5

Another week's stay in this fabulous flat, can't think of anywhere else we would rather be, always clean, cosy, with everything to hand, park your car a few steps away. The window frames the wonderful Loughrigg Fell like a picture, an ever changing picture at that, even makes doing the dishes interesting. We always feel reluctant to leave, but then look forward to going back. Ambleside and the area are just wonderful. Have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful property.

5th stay - no complaints

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful stay in this delightful flat, it is exactly as described, cosy, clean comfy and peaceful. Have to disagree with previous reviewer, we were here again for 2 weeks, there was occupants above in all this time, and we heard absolutely nothing from above. The shower is also spot on, powerful and always as hot as you need it. There was plenty storage for our 2 week stay also, you really don't need anything else. As I always say, we have every intention of returning yet again. Once again, we feel we have had a real holiday.

Lovely location.

  • 3 of 5

Not top of range but get what you pay for. Small bedroom with limited space and storage. Shower temperamental but hot eventually. Kitchen good. Comfy seating. Warm. Seating at front with lovely views.

Lots of noise from apartment upstairs. .could hear all conversation, flushing toilets during the night and general walking /moving around of occupants, furniture and heavy belongings.
