About Mrs Dorothy Denham

Maurice and Dot Denham. We are owners who wish to please.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Maurice and Dot,

We have just returned home after another super holiday in the Lake District. We have again enjoyed staying in "Fernlea" and wish to thank you for so promptly organising the installation of a replacement dishwasher for which I can say we all appreciated greatly.

Over the last 45 years my husband and I have frequented the Lake District at least twice a year. Our needs as a family have changed over the years and now we have a granddaughter we are back to renting a property and we love "Fernlea" - it's proximity to the town centre, Rothay Park, Loughrig and as a central point Ambleside is excellent. We also like the style, standard and cleanliness with which "Fernlea" is furnished, appointed and maintained.

Kind regards

Great spacious, comfy and centrally located proper

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious property, big comfy bedrooms, great bathroom with a lovely big bath, ideal for a soak after a long day's walk. Very central for the town centre with its abundance of shops, cafes and amenities. Quiet location with its own parking which can be a bit tight but didn't cause us a problem. Would definitely return and recommend

Good access to all bus services in Ambleside. Public transport to Keswick to the north, Windermere, Bowness, Kendall and Lancaster to the south. Langdale, Coniston and Hawkshead to the west. There is no need to drive this is such a well served area.

Further Details:

Fernleigh holds a sought-after location at the heart of Ambleside village, close to Grasmere world-renowed for the inspiring surroundings that moved William Wordsworth to write his best-loved poetry. Stocking up is easy at Booths supermarket (Keswick / Windermere) but there are Tesco and other major and specialist retailers in Ambleside. Martins, the hardware store are renowned for their range of 'essentials'.

Walks nearby include easy routes to Grasmere and Rydal Water, or more challenging routes on Fairfield. Walks to Loughrigg are amongst the owners favourites. The route to Skelwith Bridge past the 'old golf course' and down to Clappersgate give fantastic views of the Langdales and Lake Windermere. These walks are not taxing but routes along the ridge to Pavey Arc and return along the valley are more testing. Bus services will take walkers up Greater Langdale from where they can walk back!

Public transport very close to Keswick and northern Lakes. Also to, Windermere, Bowness, Kendal and Lancaster to the south.
