About Mr and Mrs P Taylor

We are a retired couple who enjoy walking in the Lake District. Whilst we are not lucky enough to live in the Lake District, our cleaner lives in Ambleside and has looked after a number of the flats in the complex for many years.

Mr and Mrs P Taylor purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mr and Mrs P Taylor chose Skelwith Bridge

We fell in love with both the flat, the estate and the surrounding hills. You really can leave the car in the car park and just walk for hours from the estate in any direction. And for children, the Leisure building is a great way to burn off energy in the pool or playing table tennis.

Cozy, well equipped, brill location

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is very fair. Communication from owners was better than we have experienced before in other rentals. More than adequate. We would be very keen to return

A great flat, v well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent for walking around grassmere, Ambleside, the langdales etc. Except for a trip to the supermarket we left the car at the flat and did all our outings on foot. Lovely part of the world, we’ll be back next year!

Comfy apartment - lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment. Especially enjoyed the balcony which felt like it was virtually in the tall trees outside. Inside things are very comfy - especially the main double bed and sofas. Everything you need is on hand in a compact layout that somehow feels more spacious than it actually is. Will be back!

A comfortable apartment in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was well equipped, clean and comfortable, and nicely situated in the woodland. Plenty of good walks from the door, and within easy reach of plenty of mountains to climb ! We were well satisfied. Thanks !

Literally a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Check in was super simple and flexible (which we needed since we weren’t completely sure of our arrival time). Loved the patio and selection of books! I’d recommend this place to anyone!

Lovely flat, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this comfortable and warm apartment. It was a great place to relax and at this time of year the sauna was available. Neaum Crag is a really good location for being in the Lakes.
