We stayed at Birch Cottage for my husband's birthday. It was very reasonably priced for the area and some real pluses included being able to park right outside and could walk into Ambleside, saving lots of hassle with parking etc. The cottage was cosy and beautifully clean. It had everything we needed to be able to cook for ourselves as that keeps the costs down. The view from the little garden in front was awesome and we sat there for tea and cake at the end of a busy day. We were ideally located for exploring the Lake District and one of the days we bought a family bus ticket for £32 which we used to go to Grasemere and then onto Windermere, where we walked up Orrest Head before availing back over Lake Windermere to Ambleside, included in the bus ticket. Fantastic weekend that we will remember for years to come and would love to go again!!

“Great little cottage!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Such a lovely cottage, and perfectly located to explore the Lake District. Very comfortable, had everything that we could need, easy walking distance to the town-centre of Ambleside, however still feels away from it all. Especially enjoyed the views from the cottage and the lovely garden area. Thank you so much, would love to come back sometime!

“Convinient Cottage”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Location-Not far from town but still feels away from it all.Great views from the front door.
In the Cottage-Got everything you would need to make toast to roast dinner.Electricity and gas included in the price.Very clear instructions from the owners on everything you would possibly need to know in the cottage during your stay.
Entertainment-sky tv,books and games for kids and adults alike.
Cons-An ensuite would be nice in double bedroom.
A new fridge and a couple of trays would be nice.
The carpet on the stairs a bit slippery!
