  • “We’ve stayed at Birchcroft several times.”

    Information is lacking on how to operate several of the appliances and it would be helpful if that were corrected. Some of the information is incorrect such as the notice about the cleaners leaving crockery freshly washed in the dishwasher and how to use the heating controls. Where are the outside rubbish bins? The red light in the electric heater in the fireplace has never worked all the years we have been coming and it would add a cosy feel to the cottage

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
