I rang Lakelovers call was diverted to Sykes a very helpful member of staff , rang us back in 30 minutes or so and we then also recieved and email telling us the detail of the log on code. Thinks that perplex me A check in time after 5pm and out by 9 am for extra cleaning, the only two rooms . Why does it need so much extra time? Especially on checking , in the winter ,, the owners did leave lights on and the room was warm so that was helpful. The was a £350 pound excess for damages that need to be paid upfront, that also seems very excessive for a two people mini stay. We do not know when and how that deposit will be refunded. It would be better for the owner or representative to be the property To check and validate at the start of the holiday and at then end? To carry out an inventory, as when you leave the property The May be a dispute between owner and client about the deposit and inventory of the property.

The property

In a truly romantic rural setting outside Ambleside village, Fox Corner has been refurbished to a very high standard and is an enchanting hideaway within a picturesque setting, complete with roses around the door. Escape together and soak up the atmosphere of panoramic fell views and glimpses of Lake Windermere. You'll fall in love with the interior of this topsy turvy, sumptuous and cosy retreat. Relax in the hot tub whilst gazing at the stars. If you're lucky you may see deer drinking from Pull Wood stream at dusk and dawn as you look out across the decking area. Also, buzzards can often be seen landing in the trees opposite and tawny owls perching on the gate posts. The stylish modern living space is made for cosy nights with sumptuous furnishings, a warming woodburning stove and a first class kitchen for cooking up a storm. On sunny days, take your romantic meals outside on the decking, whilst admiring the view. Exhilarating walks surround the property, and you'll find one of the Lake District's finest country pubs - the Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant - just a few minutes drive away. Accommodation in detail Wander through the small, scenic garden and take a few steps to the entrance. Upon opening the door you are presented with the open plan contemporary living accommodation on the first floor with a vaulted ceiling, wooden beams and a fabulous feature window offering the best views across the valley and to wansfell mountain. The bedroom is located on the lower ground floor. Relax on the sofa in front of the wood burner, whilst enjoying the view or watching TV.

Although the owner welcomes babies and infants please bear in mind there is no stair gate or fireguard for the log burner. Feel free to bring these yourself. Please note that the property toilet is fitted with a Saniflow macerator unit which means it is sensitive to any products other that toilet paper. Please ensure no face wipes, flushable wipes, sanitary products and cotton wool pads are not placed in the toilet but in the bin provided. Failure to do so will cause the toilet to block and potentially overflow. This may lead to you incurring charges for damages from your Security Deposit. Please also note that in order to book this property you must pay the £350 refundable security deposit, so please do not choose the Good Housekeeping Waiver upon making a booking.

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.
