“Wonderful stay”

We stayed at the apartment for 5 days with our 3 teenagers.
The apartment is exactly as advertised and the pictures are accurate.
The rooms are spacious, the kitchen is large and very well equipped.
The furniture are quite new and everything is very clean.
You should bear in mind that the road to the apartment is narrow and so is the one parking place. Its a 3 story apartment plus a basement with washer and dryer and there is a nice garden in the back.
Its 5 minute walk to the center of the town with lots of restaurants and a little steep climb back.
We highly recommend it.

“An excellent choice for a stay in the Lakes”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Myself and two friends rented High View for a weekend of walking the hills in the Lake District and what a good choice we made.

The house is a 5 minute walk from the very centre of Ambleside but be aware that the path is very steep, unlit and quite uneven in places - though not a problem for fit, able-bodied people.

The house was very comfortable, nicely decorated with what felt like a brand new kitchen and it was very clean. The house is split over 3 floors - with both bathrooms on the 1st (middle) floor along with a double bedroom.

There's parking for one car outside the house and the lounge has a gas fire to made it cosy and welcoming after a day in the hills.

We had a wonderful weekend in the Lakes and this property contributed significantly to the how good the weekend was.

If I was wanting to stay in Ambleside again, I wouldn't hesitate for an instant to book this property again.

“Perfect location and well suited accomodation”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just came back after a lovely week of staying here. Couldn't recommend it enough. The property is in a fantastic location. A short walk takes you straight to the heart of the village. I was worried that my elderly parents wont be able to climb the steep path, but they were both fine.
The house has everything you want , 3 good size bedrooms. Very nice and clean bedding. No odours or dust or dirt. The kitchen is very well equipped. Has parking outside.
It was very cold and wet when we first arrived. Got the fire going and the house was warm and toasty in an hour. Didn't even need heating after the first day as the house retained heat and weather was great outside.
We had a slight issue with the first floor landing smoke alarm, it went off twice the first day of our stay and 5 to 6 times the next day. Davie, the local manager, came and promptly sorted it out. Many thanks Davie!
We loved our stay in Ambleside and will definitely return. I would highly recommend this place as we had a lovely time and the location was absolutely spot on. I couldn't have chosen a better location.

“Comfortable accomodation in a great location for a walking holiday in the Lake District”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

High View is well equipped, and in a pleasant location for walks around Ambleside and the surrounding countryside. Our family (with two teenage daughters) had a very enjoyable stay there during August 2016. The only cautions I might offer to a prospective guest are that (a) the property is on three floors, which involves some climbing of stairs ... particularly to reach the bedrooms on the top floor, and (b) the pathway from the property to Ambleside is quite steep, but should not be beyond the capabilities of most.
