Why garth london chose Windermere & Central Lakes

Ambleside is in the heart of the English Lake District so there are many attractions in the local area.My dad worked at Windscale UKAE and used to drive through Ambleside on way up there from Warrington.When he retired he bought Lingmell as he loved the lakes and we decided to keep it in the family.

What makes this house unique

Ambleside is a 1 min. walk away yet this is a quiet private location. Amazing views from the wide balcony. Large detached house with gardens. Waterhead and Lake Windermere are 5 min. level walk away. Heated indoor pool with Jacuzzi adjacent/also tots pool.Having a heated swimming facility virtually next door is so convenient.

Nice Bathrooms, Rest of Property needs upgrading, Pool not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

Great Location, but apart from the bathrooms this property is a bit old-fashioned/down at heel (especially the kitchen) and needs a makeover to justify the price tag for a week's accommodation

We got the impression that the pool was very close and for the exclusive use of this and maybe just one or two other properties, when in fact it's in a holiday complex of multiple properties about 70-100 yards up the road and can be used by many people if they so wish. As a consequence we didn't use the pool at all. For the sake of transparency I would suggest taking the bit about the pool off the advertisement (the clients have to pay for it separately anyway) and then let them know they can use a pool in a holiday complex next door if they wish once they've made the booking

Ambleside itself is a lovely place and I would recommend it as a base for a holiday in the Lakes. However, being English School Holidays it and the surrounding area were incredibly busy - the whole place is heaving in July and August. I didn't dare go for a bike ride on the surrounding roads as the traffic was awful. Also, July and August are some of the wettest months in this part of the world and we didn't have a day without rain. I think May/June or September would be better months to visit this area - maybe less busy and maybe better weather?

Great property - Great location

  • 5 of 5

Just two minutes to the centre of Ambleside by foot, this property is perfectly located to explore the town without having to use the car. The house itself is very comfortable and quiet and has a balcony offering great views over the town and fells beyond. It is well equipped and has ample space for a relaxing holiday. 3 good sized bedrooms and lounge. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

Lovely clean house.

  • 4 of 5

House was great and very spacious. The only reasons I gave it only 4 stars and not 5 is that access to the garden is out of front door and round the side and down the steps. .. not ideal every time the dog wants to go toilet. Also we took 2 cars and was very tight to squeeze them in plus vey steep driveway..... the house was lovely with a really nice view from the balcony. No where to hang washing but there was a tumble dryer. Half of my clothes can't be tumble dried though. Internet signal is weak and intermittent but this is the whole area.... not just the property. Loads of storage space in the bedrooms and lovely big bathrooms.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comment Hayley.. Just to clarify for future guests that the rear garden can be accessed without steps via the patio door in the ground floor bedroom. Recent guests have described the BT Wi Fi package as "good" and "excellent" and we have the numbers of the maintenance team available on the kitchen noticeboard,should there be a problem. Thanks garth

Great place to stay. Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Lingmell. The house had all we needed for our stay. The views over Ambleside from the balcony were amazing. We would recommend this property.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to LIngmell but most certainly will not be our last. Garth, the owner, is very helpful with any enquiries you may have and takes a genuine interest in making your stay as pleasant as he can. The property is very much a "home from home" with everything you could possibly want. Our priorities were finding somewhere close to the town,dog friendly with enclosed garden. We definately got that and so much more .. we went with family and loved that we had the downstairs bedrooms and they had the upstairs, the layout for us was perfect giving added privacy. The bathrooms are stunning, done to a very high standard. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you may need. On top of all this, as others have said , are the stunning views from the balcony, excellent wifi and full sky TV package.

Another lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another lovely weeks holiday in Lingmell.It is a beautiful house, very clean, comfortable and welcoming with fantastic views. It is very well equipped with everything needed. ( even sky sports). The new bathroom and en suite are really nice. It is just a few minutes walk from shops, pubs and restaurants. There are lots of walks from the door, and the use of the swimming pool just a few yards away is a real bonus.

We have been coming here for many years and can never wait to return.
