“Perfect cottage”

Stayed here for a week with our young baby and had a super holiday. Cottage was perfect. Lots of space in all rooms, whilst still retaining a cosey feel. The kitchen was well equipped, a real home from home. The bathroom was also excellent, newly fitted, with a bath for bathing the baby and a fantastic separate shower. The real highlight was the location, a 10 minute stroll into Ambleside along pavement (important with the buggy) or in the other direction a short walk into the countryside.
