    “We really liked staying at Fairie Glen.”

    The location of the property and facilities in the house were very good and we had a good holiday. We would like to stay sometime again in the future but would appreciate more comprehensive instructions on how to use the central heating system. In particular it wasn`t clear how to use the various controls on the downstairs thermostat and we had no hot water at the end of the week.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. We are pleased to see that you had an enjoyable stay. We take all comments on board, but would like to add that had we been made aware of the issue that you experienced with the water, we would have attended to resolve. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 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.
