About Keith and Helen Farrell

We live in a small village in Poynton Cheshire we have always loved Ambleside and the surrounding area and finally purchased Fellside that was old and was in desperate need of renovating. It is now fully renovated and is ideally situated within easy walking distance to all amenities yet still in a quiet and peaceful position.

Keith and Helen Farrell purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Keith and Helen Farrell chose Ambleside

If you enjoy a peaceful quiet location yet want also to be able stroll into the village and be amongst the many bars and restaurants this is ideal. From Fellside you can walk easily to the village and Ferry port (Lake side ) The cottage shares a court yard where you can enjoy the sunshine and the views of the Lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Due to its elevated position accessed by a small steep drive the views from the court yard and above the property are stunning this is one of the main reasons we bought the property. The bedroom and lounge have featured ceilings creating a pleasing cottage feeling.

Great property in superb location

  • 4 of 5

we stayed for a week over Christmas. Cottage is very well appointed, TV's in every room, 2 ensuite bathrooms and 1 shared toilet. The owners had taken the trouble to put up a Christmas tree plus other decorations. Only a 15 minute walk to town along footpaths. Parking is a bit tight but not a big problem, we had 2 cars.

Access to hill walks with great views within yards of the property.

We really enjoyed our stay

Excellent cottage, lovely place to stay, highly recommend

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely. Very spacious, clean and reasonably well equipped. A great location although the drive is very steep. A warm welcome from the owners. We had a lovely holiday.

Very pleased with our accomodation! In a private area that over looks the countryside and lake. A well finished property that is extremely comfortable and thought through. Beds are amazing- slept very well during stay. Make use of the top private garden and one below beside small lake. Quiet and enchanted! 1 thing I would bear in mind for again would be that the drive way leading up to property is very steep with a tight turn into parking.. possibly not suitable for very large SUVs. However our long estate car did just fine!

The house was very good

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was very good - but it was not overly well equipped in the kitchen - for example there was no means of making coffee - we had to go out and buy a cafetiere. There were a couple of other issues - the pump on the heating system was very noisy, sufficiently so to wake lighter sleepers at night. Also the Velux skylights gave excellent light during the daytime but those in the bedrooms flooded the room with light at 4am, again waking lighter sleepers - they need to be fitted with blinds. Finally, there was confusion about the time the house was available - the final details (which including address, key Code etc) sent to us via the iPhone app said 2pm. We arrived at this time to find the house had not been cleaned - cleaners did not arrive until 3pm. We called the owners who told us that arrival time used to be 2pm but is now 4pm. This needs to be corrected in the documentation provided to your clients.

Other than the above, we found the house to be very good - the beds were particularly comfortable.

Homely, idylic and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

The place felt like home imediately. We shared some beautiful moments and thaks to the wife, some beautiful home cooked meals. The showers were first class, just what was needed after a day of exploring. The property waa in excelent condition and the owners were easy to het along with and always abailable to help and advise. A big thank you to the owners and to the lakes for a break that was memorable for all the right reasons.

Clean spacious and very comfortable, a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent 5 days in the cottage and on arrival were immediately impressed with the standard of furnishings and the modern open feel and look of the accommodation. All the rooms were of a good size and were very comfortable. Two days confined to the cottage because of heavy rain did nothing to impair our feeling of comfort and relaxation. A minor problem with the plumbing was resolved satisfactorily with Keith making arrangements for a plumber to call the same day. The property was well placed for a short walk into Ambleside and For exploring other parts of the Lake District. We would definitely stay again and will recommend it to friends looking to visit the area
