  • “The apartment was nice but it was very dirty with us having to clean the property upon arrival - cobwebs, spiders, dirty plates, dirty table, crumbs all over the kitchen floor and stains on the bed.”

    The Sykes Cottages team were not very helpful when I advised them of this; they didn’t respond to two of my emails and kept requesting photos of the dirt which I had already cleaned up in order to progress the matter further. They did offer a reclean but I had already cleaned the property and with Covid, we didn’t want someone entering the premises. They didn’t seem to care that the apartment wasn’t up to expectations.

    - Mrs Brown, October 2021

    Thank you for your feedback Mrs Brown. We are pleased you liked the Blue Hill apartment. We are sorry to hear your comments regarding the cleanliness you encountered at the property, as this falls below our usual standard I understand the Lakelovers housekeeping team offered to reattend but this was declined by yourself. We do rely heavily on photographic evidence so we can resolve any issues in a timely manner, unfortunately on this occasion we couldn't help further. Please refer to your recent communication from our customer service team. Once again, we thank you for taking the time to give us your valuable feedback. Property Owner

Blue Hill Park is a state-of-the-art, ground floor apartment situated in an exclusive development, on the slopes of Wansfell, with the vibrant centre of Ambleside just a short downhill stroll away (A slightly longer walk back uphill) This perfectly placed bolt-hole enjoys a wonderful setting leading the way in contemporary Lakeland life. Oak, Lakeland slate and glass feature throughout blending effortlessly with sumptuous furnishings. This is a place to relax and spend precious time together. A pathway leads behind the property to Wansfell via Blue Hill Wood and in the other direction a coveted short stroll to the shops, restaurants, lake cruises and late nights of Ambleside and Waterhead Pier. What a place to recharge your batteries! Accommodation in detail Entrance hall, beautiful oak flooring continuing into the open plan living space; contemporary yet comfy furnishings. The designer kitchen is open to the living space and has all you may need including a stylish island comprising the hob, sink and pop up power supply for the electric kettle and toaster. Both bedrooms are beautifully appointed and one has patio doors to a private patio garden, ideal for al-fresco living. The bathroom is luxurious. Private parking space with extra visitor space. Location Blue Hill Park nestles in a peaceful yet very handy spot just a few minutes stroll from the heart of the village of Ambleside. A holiday property in Ambleside provides an excellent starting point for a varied Lake District holiday. Easily accessible via the A591 on the northern shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a contemporary, characterful Lakeland village with a spectacular backdrop of Lake District fells. The location is ideal for walking in the Lake District, with many renowned routes beginning in and around the village. But Ambleside is also a popular choice for a relaxed, slow-paced holiday. Contemporary shops, leisurely lake cruises, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs make the village centre a delight at any time of year. For evening entertainment, you'll find plenty to suit every taste. Try the Fulling Mill restaurant, in a superbly converted saw mill, for a special evening out. Or, take your pick from the two quirky cinemas; Zeffirellis cinema includes a great vegetarian restaurant and live jazz bar. Fellinis has an excellent vegetarian restaurant too and shows live stream concerts/shows in a relaxed studio cinema environment. You'll also find a wide range of pubs, serving hearty food and real Lakeland ale - notable for its lake shore setting is the Wateredge Inn. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre. The elegant 'steamers' offer regular trips to Bowness and Lakeside - a great way to explore without driving. Evening cruises are also available, sometimes with buffet meals and live music. Windermere Golf Club is close by and well worth a visit too.

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.
