Excellent accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We had a really great week. The cottage has been finished to a very high spec. We liked the combination of kitchen and lounge area and loved the shower! Location was very good and we certainly plan to revisit.

Well presented, well appointed and perfectly situated cottage a stones throw from the centre

  • 4 of 5

Just enjoyed 4 nights here and will definitely be back. The cottage has been beautifully renovated to a really high standard. My only criticism really would be the road noise from the main bedroom - I think heavy curtains would help a great deal, instead of the current voiles, and would block out the light that comes in at the edges of the blind. Otherwise, this is a fantastic place to stay, with everything Ambleside has to offer just a short stroll away.

Cracken little cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights and were more than happy with the cottage. The layout was very good with lots of nice touches like the under floor heating and night light in the bathroom.

The kitchen was of a decent standard and well stocked.

A lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The Old Coach house is a well equipped and comfortable holiday cottage.

Very close to the centre of Ambleside and a gentle stroll to Lake Windermere, the location is great and the parking a bonus.

We had a fantastic week and are sure to return.
