    “We were very disappointed with the cleanliness of the property, thick cobwebs behind and around furniture and behind the doors, dust on surfaces.”


    We have stayed at the property 3 times in the last 5 years and it felt tiered, disappointing given the cost. The cleaning sheet and time cleaned was not completed. The kitchen was lacking on wine glasses and crockery was chipped, particularly bowls. The cafetière was not fit for purpose and so we replaced the plunger and left that at the property for future use. The kitchen tap continues to constantly drip, as was the case last year. No spare toilet rolls, although we wouldn’t expect a weeks supply, but at least a spare in each bathroom. For information - There were a number of wasps in the property, we cleared at least 12, all very slow. Just wonder if there is issue with a nest somewhere. We love the location but think we would look for another property next time.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and notifying us about the cleaning at Park View. We contacted the Lake Lovers Housekeeping Dept who have assured us that they will speak to the cleaner. Lake Lovers will also keep an eye on the crockery and glassware situation at the house on our behalf; we have since ordered new items. Lake Lovers will send someone from the Maintenance Dept to check the wasps. Property Owner


The property

This gorgeous cottage is literally a stone's throw from the absolute heart of Ambleside centre and aptly named as it stands alongside Rothay Park with superb views over the church towards Loughrigg Fell, having been fully refurbished in summer 2014.Enjoying the very best of both worlds this cottage sits in a peaceful spot yet only a minute's stroll from the village amenities - bliss. Two couples or a small family can spread out here, relax and soak up the two chic bedrooms, one with separate dressing room, the other with its own reception room and a bathroom facility a piece. Cosy up on chilly evenings after a day on the fells by the woodburning stove or enjoy sunny days on the patio but wandering into ever popular Ambleside with its host of excellent restaurants will always temp you out. ==Accommodation in detail A parking permit is provided so you can park on the lane outside the property and nearby.

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.

About the location


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.
