This property has everything you need as a perfect base to explore the area. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy to relax in after a day of walking, with amazing views from the sun-trap balcony. Its great to have private, convenient parking for the flat. This is our fourth visit and we're about to book in one for 2019! Can't recommend enough.

“A real "Walker's Retreat"”

Great location for town and surrounding countryside. Spotlessly clean and cosy with wonderful views of the hills from the lounge. Everything you could wish for is provided. Parking close to the apartment with sufficient space for an SUV. Highly recommended; can't wait to make a return visit to this holiday cottage.

“We love it here!”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This is our third stay and we love it even more each time. The easy access to Ambleside, the beautiful view from the balcony and so centrally placed for all the 'big' walks.
The owners are very helpful and attentive and the property has everything you need.
We can't recommend enough!
