A lovely village centre cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Claire Cottage for a long weekend with grown up family. The house is warm welcoming with a great log burner. Well equipped kitchen, lovely big lounge diner , comfy bedrooms. The house is right in the middle of the village so easy for everyone to get around and do their own thing, and easy access to the mountains. All in all a prefect house for a break

Very warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was warm and welcoming and very well equipped. One or two light bulbs had gone but didn't detract from anything. We had a really good time and would go back again and would certainly recommend it with a caution about the steepness of the stairs (not a criticism). The lack of a second parking permit was a bit disappointing but soon over come and as we had two cars we took advantage of the free parking down by the pier and used the shuttle. All in all a good choice, very central and surprisingly quiet.

A beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. The decor is clean and subtle but everything you could possibly need was there.

We were a group of 5 family members with elderly parents and the house worked brilliantly. Plenty of living space and beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms.

Central location made it easy to walk out in the evenings to eat and browse Ambleside.

I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family.
