    “The Spinneys is a large, comfortable space for 4 adults.”

    It’s well located for easy access to town and has good recycling facilities (which seems to be rare with Lakelovers properties). The kitchen has a good level of utensils. It really does need updating though… I slept terribly on an awful 50-60mm layer of foam mattress protection, with an awful plastic topper. I removed it in the end, to sleep on the actual mattress. The bathrooms all need updating - there’s only one decent shower, the other two are electric, which don’t work if they ...

    It’s well located for easy access to town and has good recycling facilities (which seems to be rare with Lakelovers properties). The kitchen has a good level of utensils. It really does need updating though… I slept terribly on an awful 50-60mm layer of foam mattress protection, with an awful plastic topper. I removed it in the end, to sleep on the actual mattress. The bathrooms all need updating - there’s only one decent shower, the other two are electric, which don’t work if they are in use at the same time. The kitchen only has a small under-counter fridge… too small for food and booze, and the same size freezer that we didn’t used. The kitchen is covered in little ‘warning’ labels from the owner that are really irritating… one little box has 3 labels on it saying ‘do not turn off’… the washing machine must have 10+ labels on it!! Requesting ‘quick washes only’… it’s not welcoming. Two good quality ovens are great, and the electric hob is fine. Kitchen would benefit from a few trays, for TV dinners and some new chopping boards. A new kitchen is really needed, as well as the bathrooms - so some serious cashes needs to be dropped for 4/5 stars. There’s no outside space that’s really useable, just a front and back balcony area that’s in the shade all day - and the steps up to the property are very slippy in the wet on account of mould growth. We don’t regret staying at the Spinneys, we had a pleasant stay but probably won’t stay again - there are just far superior options.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at The Spinney. We are saddened to hear of these deficiencies raised and have discussed them with the owner to ensure attention is made to those outstanding. We are in discussion with the Housekeeping team regarding the mattress protectors. Originally these plastic ones had been added for hygiene reasons but understand they can be uncomfortable so will look at alternative. The labels throughout the property are there for ease of use with such things in the property through past experiences these have generally helped with guests. We thank you for your comments and glad to hear you had a lovely break regardless. Many thanks! Owner relations

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.
