“fabulous girls weekend”

We stayed at Clare Cottage in November 2014 for a girls celebratory weekend. The cottage is gorgeously appointed, with full attention to detail, cosy towels, up- to- the- minute bathrooms, romantic bedrooms, stylish living/dining room and super welcome pack. The brand new, fully equipped, kitchen had everything we could ask for and things we hadn't even thought of! The patio at the back has a quaint feel and the views from the top floors are fabulous. The cottage is really central to all that Ambleside has to offer - day and night, yet tucked away in a very quiet location.

“Fabulous cottage, great location”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in Clare Cottage w/c 20 Oct visiting from Guernsey, Channel Isles, and had a fabulous stay.

Cottage was extremely well equipped, cosy and clean. Couldn't have asked for more. Underfloor heating in kitchen and bathrooms was particularly nice. Fantastic location in the heart of Ambleside (but not noisy as tucked away off Main Street) which is brimming with lovely eateries and pubs, just a short stroll away. Especially enjoyed Lucy's for dinner (make sure you book ahead) which is literally 2mins walk up the road.

Also found it impossible to park right outside but happily parked in one of the car parks and paid the fee. Didn't put us off as was a great value cottage with 3 bedrooms and right in the heart of the action of the village.

Had a fab week of weather to enjoy the stunning scenery and mountain walks just a short drive away.

Would definitely recommend to friends and would look to stay again.

“Beautifully furnished and very well equipped”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I spent a weekend at the cottage with my girlfriend and two other couples for her birthday.

We had a fantastic weekend at Clare Cottage. It has been recently refurnished extremely tastefully and is very homely. The kitchen has modern amenities in abundance, whilst the living room (with dining table) is luxurious and even has a log burner which was very cosy. The cottage has very swift Wi-Fi access, whilst the living room is equipped with a TV and audio with USB plug-in for iPods etc. The bedrooms (2 doubles, one of which was en suite, one twin) were extremely comfortable.

The cottage was also very reasonably priced for six people for three nights. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a short/medium-term stay in the Lakes.

The only disadvantage of the cottage, which I must emphasise can't be helped, is the parking situation. We arrived at approximately 7pm on the Friday evening having driven up after work. The parking on the street outside the cottage is extremely limited. There are two permits that come with the cottage that allow you to park in any of the designated parking zones in Ambleside. Unfortunately between 10am and 6pm these are limited to an hour. Therefore if you can't get parked on the street outside the cottage, you have to park on another street and keep move your car after every hour during the day, or pay to park in one of the car parks. Fortunately for us two spaces became available on Saturday morning so we were sorted for the rest of the weekend.

Anyway, I've just realised that I've spent a disproportionate amount of time describing the only negative which absolutely didn't detract from a fantastic weekend. Definitely recommend Clare Cottage!
