  • “The cottage itself was lovely and very well decorated and thought out.”

    Sadly, the service from lakelovers and a few basic things let this down. It is impossible to reach a real human to talk to at lakelovers.

    Sadly, the service from lakelovers and a few basic things let this down. It is impossible to reach a real human to talk to at lakelovers. I had an issue over parking and ended up having to try to reach you through social media, only to be told it wasn't your problem and that you couldn't help me. The cottage is supposed to be gold standard. With this in mind I would expect some basic things to be in place - sharp knives would be nice, enough dishwasher tablets to last the week, and an appropriate amount of toilet toll for 4 adults for a week (3 is not enough). I'd also expect that garden rubbish isn't left strewn allover the patio furniture making it unusable. As the agent, its your responsibility to take care of these things and you have let down this beautiful cottage by trying to cut corners and not providing a high level of service. We paid a lot of money for this cottage and expect better.

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.
