About Lynne Gilhome
We are a family of four, who all love walking and exploring. We love coming to Fellview and the Lake District in all seasons.
Lynne Gilhome purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Lynne Gilhome chose Ambleside
We visited the Lakes for many years pre-children and fell in love with the area. After searching for the ideal property for us we found Fellview. Our children love going and exploring the fells. We often take our parents or friends with us and the accommodation is perfect for that especially having en-suite bathrooms! We find Ambleside a fantastic place, friendly, great restaurants, pubs, lots for children of all ages to do and all from the doorstep. We love to visit and loathe to leave!
What makes this Apartment unique
We find the convenience of Fellview fantastic, within 200m. we have a Bakers, Newsagents, park with childrens area, Chinese, Italian, Thai and Indian Restaurants, several pubs, Cinema, Shops galore, Fish and Chip shops, Pizza takeaway, Tesco, Co-op, Spar. We love the locality and the views. It is great that we do not have to drive after we arrive but all of the Lake distict is easily accessible from Fellview.

Well situated, equipped and clean.
Well situated for restaurants, etc. Clean and well equipped. Arrival, departure and car parking instructions are easy to follow and owner most helpful. Central but quiet location. Great base for our walking holiday.
Thank you Peter. Really pleased your break away went well. Hope to welcome you again in the future. Lynne
Perfect, we loved everything about it.
Excellent location, spacious, bright, well equipped, comfortable.
Everything we wanted and more!
Great location and apartment
The property was great for what we needed - something close to the amenities of Ambleside with parking. Apartment itself had everything you would need for a self catering holiday, if a slight bit on the tight side should there be 7 adults and you wanted to cook a meal (not an overly spacious kitchen/dining and living room and actually only room for 6 diners really).
Parking is not onsite - so this may be an issue for anyone with mobility issues, although you can unload and pack up the car by parking down the alley way
outside the apartment for a short time.
Other comment is that the two double rooms were not really big enough to put the travel cot up in (we had to move the furniture quite a bit to make room, to the point that getting around the room was difficult), so I assume the presumption is the cot goes in the large room with the 3 single beds (not ideal of course if the baby sleeps with the parents).
Fantastic that all rooms were ensuite - made getting ready quick and painless for all.
However, the negatives were just some things to consider - overall it was a great apartment and can't be faulted for the reasonable price.
Great holiday house
Our stay at the house was great. It was very clean, comfortable and in a good location. Would recommend a stay there.
A great base to explore Ambleside and the rest of the lakes.
A lovely break
We really enjoyed our short break and wished we had booked for longer. The property was excellent. Very comfortable with everything you could possibly need provided. It is also very well situated for the many, varied pubs and restaurants in Ambleside.
