    “Copt How is in a good location however it looks like it needs some TLC and a deep clean.”

    There is a lot of dust and the carpets barely looked as if they had been vacuumed (the vacuum was completely clogged and looked like it hadn't been emptied for weeks... we cleaned it).

    There is a lot of dust and the carpets barely looked as if they had been vacuumed (the vacuum was completely clogged and looked like it hadn't been emptied for weeks... we cleaned it). Also the downstairs WC sink tap is badly leaking when turned on. At least the light bulbs mostly worked... last time we stayed here we had to replace 7 bulbs!

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.
