A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The most loveliest apartment I have ever stayed in. A lovely welcome gift was left for us. We can not wait to stay again. From the moment I walked in I didn't want to leave. The lounge is so lovely with the windows open listening g to the water, perfect whilst having a cup of tea in the morning and a glass of wine at night. I would recommend lots of the pubs, cafes as all has great service, food and drinks. Thank you Joanne for a perfect break away from it all.

Clean, modern, spacious and in great location.

  • 5 of 5

the morning after our first night in the apartment we decided we simply couldnt fault it. It has everything you need for a more than comfortable stay. Bright and spacious, clean and modern, comfy beds, good shower and bath, also dont be put off by the fact that it is above a shop. First of all, you have your own parking space and entrance, the apartment has been soundproofed well so you wont hear a thing from downstairs, and with the clever positioning of the windows and outside seating area in the apartment, it feels completely private. Location is superb too for central ambleside, everything is within a short walk's reach.

What an amazingly wonderful flat. I can honestly say that this was one of the most peaceful, relaxing breaks that I've had in many years.

Superb facilities, extremely helpful welcome set amongst the backdrop of such a wonderful location.

We'll be back... subject to availability of course.

I can honestly say that I'd swap this flat for my own home anytime.

My husband and I stayed in this fabulous apartment for 3 nights in September. On arrival we were greeted by Elizabeth from the Rock Shop who was very helpful and friendly and showed us around the apartment. The apartment is beautifully decorated, extremely clean and comfortable and incredibly well equipped. A welcome pack of biscuits, wine and milk was much appreciated. This was our first visit but definitely won't be our last, we absolutely loved it. Thank you so much. Davina and Phil

Another fantastic week spent in this fantastic flat with my husband and son. The welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated. Flat was spotless with a few new bits and pieces this year. Centrally located in the centre of Ambleside and parking space just outside. Sits within easy walking distance of many good places to eat such as the salutation hotel, unicorn inn and Dodds restaurant. Look forward to returning to the flat at some time in the future. Also met the owner which was nice to put a face to a name. Thanks again Joanne . 4 star rTing

By far the best self catering flat we have stayed in, everything was perfect, so good to have a lovely place to sit and relax in after a day out. The weather was mixed but able to sit on the balcony enjoying the sounds of the beck while reading.Will be telling our friends about this lovely flat we stayed in, in Ambleside.Everyone was so friendly from Joanne,when we made the booking to the staff in the shop.

Thanks to you all
