Why Hannah chose Ambleside

The Lake District is our favourite place and when we stepped out on to the balcony at this property the views took our breath away (even if the balcony was falling down at the time!) They persuaded us to embark on the renovation of the house to what it is today.

What makes this cottage unique

Uninterrupted views down the Langdale valley from every room in the house and in particular from the large patio windows and balcony in the living room.

Fantastic accommodation despite the changeable weather

  • 5 of 5

Party of eight to visit the Lakes at short notice. Fantastic accommodation with room for all. Coffee machine takes whole beans, and converts them into coffee! No need for instant. Spent Saturday evening sitting out on veranda watching sun go down behind the Langdale’s. Planning our return when we can all get together again.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage inside and out. Lovely, calming decor. We relaxed every evening and even had the rare chance to sit on the decking. It is well stocked with everything you can possibly need. The views are amazing and walks are easily reached from the cottage. The local shop stocks everything you need and the local pub, Wainwrights serves their own smoked ribs, pulled pork and other delicious food. Hannah kept in touch with me and the instructions she gave to access the cottage were easy to follow and accurate. The only problem was, we wanted to stay there longer. Thank you Hannah.

Spacious, well-equipped, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday staying here. The location is great, the views from the balcony are breathtaking and the house is wonderful. We stayed with another family and the facilities are brilliant for this. Separate luxury en-suite facilities for 4 out of the 5 bedrooms, plus an extra bathroom with roll-top bath, meant that we were never waiting to get a shower in the morning! For sharing families this was perfect. The living room is beautiful with high ceilings and the photos don't really do it justice. The appliances in the kitchen were great, including a coffee machine for a freshly ground 'bean to cup' morning caffeine fix! There was everything we needed in the kitchen and we were able to easily cook many meals, not missing a single utensil. The 'snug' downstairs was great and also meant the children had some space to themselves to play in and watch tv or dvds. We hope to return here; having lived in the Lakes before, I don't think you can get a better location for proximity to amenities, whilst still feeling like you are truly escaping and enjoying the full Lake Dustrict experience. Thank you to Hannah who has been great throughout the whole booking process, right down to returning a cable we left in the house by mistake!

A wonderful winter break in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

When we first walked into Fir View the spaciousness of the lounge/kitchen/diner was the first thing that hit us. The beautiful view from the picture window across the valley was breathtaking. We quickly had the log fire up and running throwing out a huge amount of heat and sat drinking wine, absorbing that view.

The kitchen area is extremely well equipped and served by 2 Neff identical ovens, supported by a Neff combination microwave oven. There is also a Neff coffee maker but we didn't make use of this. There is abundant refrigeration and an excellent supply of crockery, utensils and glasses etc too.

The bedrooms all have high grade, comfortable beds with extremely warm duvets and 2 pillows per person. There is more than adequate storage for all your clothing.

The family bathroom and en suites are fitted and decorated to an extremely high standard and boasting modern fittings. They are well lit and lovely and warm.

The whole house is beautifully comfy and warm and it has an abundant supply of very hot water. The place was immaculately clean too.

We didn't make use of the Langdale Hotel facilities sadly but it's just a short distance away. The local shop is also just a strole away too and Waniwrights just a few more steps further along the road. Hannah supplied torches for the dark walk at night should you wish to venture out in the evening.

Being winter when we visited, we weren't able to make use of the outdoor facilities but I can well imagine having lovely barbecues, sat around the circular outdoor table in the rear garden.

I have already verbally recommended this property to my family and friends and wouldn't hesitate to visit again in the future. It's a home from home.

Beautiful cottage, stunning view of Langdale peaks

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for 11 people as a surprise weekend for my partner with all her friends and was very impressed. The house provided a perfect location for sociable weekend away with all our friends - the big open plan Kitchen/Diner/Living area was very spacious and was ideal for playing games and hosting a big group roast dinner around the authentic wooden dining table. Also, the kitchen was very well thought out and had the essential utensils needed to cook meals for 11 people (2 oven / grills was very handy indeed). Furthermore, the balcony leading out from the living area is a perfect space for enjoying a cuppa in the morning overlooking the stunning view down the valley. Would love to visit the cottage in the summer where late evening drinks could be enjoyed in this area!

The bedrooms were absolutely stunning! Each one was uniquely decorated with a different theme in each. 4/5 bedrooms had amazing en-suites (better than a 5* hotel) with the 5th bedroom being directly opposite a beautiful bathroom with a roll top bath (Nice after long walk on the fells).

The location was ideal, only 5 minute walk in to the village where there is a very well stocked convenience store. 15 minute walk and your in the beautiful village of Elterwater where you will find one of my favorite pubs the Britannia Inn. If you enjoy a more challenging walk there are some really nice hikes over the ridge in to the attractive village of Grasmere (1-2 hours) which are rewarded with some wonderful views at the top of the peaks.

Overall, everyone who stayed at the cottage thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Fir Garth and we will all be booking again next year. For large groups of friends or family I would highly recommend this cottage for a fun and enjoyable stay in the Lakes.
