Great property. Central location. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a fantastic week away in Ambleside. The property is in a great location. Short walk in to town, as well as only being a 15 minute walk to the ferry. Very modern inside with everything you need. Exactly what my wife, 2 year old son and I were looking for. Having a parking space in such a prime location is a major plus, however be warned the space is quite tight if you have a particularly large vehicle. We have a Nissan Qashqai which just fit. Would definitely stay here again in the future and would have no hesitation at all in recommending this lovely property to anyone.

Owner's Response: We thank you for your fabulous review, so pleased you enjoyed your holiday with us but most of all what our Old Coach House has to offer with the added bonus of a beautiful location. We do hope you can return another time, this time of year is particularly more spectacular with snowy mountain tops from every window. Kindest regards Anita & Peter

Well finished property.

  • 3 of 5

Very high standard of finish but a few niggles. Tiny parking spaces and the property is right on a main road. The heating is difficult to control except by turning the boiler off as it gets too hot. The shower/wet room needs a curtain or screen as the whole bathroom gets soaked which is annoying. The rear bedroom has no ventilation once you close the blind in the roof which makes it very hot, don't know how you could sleep in the summer. Traffic noise is annoying and the bedroom doors rattle every time a car goes past. Lighting in the living room is definitely a case of form over function, either spotlights which blind you or a light fitting with 8 bulbs, needs a rethink. Problems parking when someone turned up in next door property and you couldn't even get into both cars.

A bit noisy

  • 4 of 5

Accomodation excellent and being close to town centre saved on parking charges. Main problem is being located on a busy one way main road (and bus route) and bedroom on back edge of carriageway not good for sleeping. We live in a very quiet rural area and noticed the traffic noise. No garden or sitting out space

Owner's Response: Thankyou so much for your review, lots of our guests appreciate the close proximity of our cottage to the village, after a long days walking on the fells it's really great to leave the car behind and just have a gentle level stroll to the nearest restaurant. Kindest regards Anita & Peter

Modern, stylish yet homely.

  • 5 of 5

Great little property with plenty of character both old and modern. Storage space is surprisingly plentiful and we never felt cramped or untidy. Beds were comfortable. Great location for Ambleside centre, walks and the rest of the Lakes. We will be back, unless I can convince my wife to move to The Lakes!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, our little cottage is very 'roomy', we would also love to live in the lakes, it's just a wonderful area to relax and spend 'well deserved' leisure time. We welcome you back to stay again.

Pretty cottage, well designed and equipped - shame about the main road outside!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is really beautifully designed and laid out. Gorgeous features like mood lighting and heated underfloors. Lovely large, open plan kitchen/diner lounge and quirky bedroom with not a right angle in sight. Lovely wet room to scrape the mud off from a long day out in the hills. The only down side was the main road outside when it's really warm at night and you need to have the windows open.

Great to be able to cook properly there too!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we love our quirky cottage and appreciate that it needs to be 'home from home' for our guests so we ensured that it had all the luxuries that you could wish for. It is very central and our less abled guests love it for the ease of getting into the village without a car. We hope to see you again soon. Kindest regards Anita & Peter
