“Home from Home”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was the second time that we have stayed in this charming little cottage.It is situated in a very convenient spot almost in the center of Ambleside .Tthe shops, pubs and restaurants are only a stones throw away. The cottage is very clean and well equipped. This is an excellent base for exploring the Lakes whatever time of the year , very warm and cosy .Cant wait to go back .

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

There were 2 of us staying in this cosy cottage and we found it ideal. The location was so convenient for popping out for a meal or a drink on an evening after a days walk, with pubs and restaurants just a few minutes away. The only small drawback was not having a shower although I must admit, I enjoyed soaking my aching muscles in the bath after walking. There was plenty of room for the 2 of us, with a well equipped kitchen and lots of places to dry off clothes. I would definitely stay here again.

“A Delightful Cottage!”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Thank You Peter for a perfect stay! Smithy Brow is ideally located in Ambleside! Close to shops, pubs and restaurants.

We stayed here in low season for a couple of nights, but found it the ideal base for walking trips!

The cottage is small and cosy with everything you need for a weekend getaway.
I will be sure to book this cottage again, next time I am in town!

“Warm & cosy”
Reviewed 19 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Warm, cosy, traditional cottage close to the town centre and with a pub almost next door. Not as modern as some other accommodation but this is not a negative. This has everything you need, is in a great location and is better priced than any of the other accommodations that I looked at. The owner is local and easily contactable should the need arise.

Have just returned from a 10 night stay in this cosy cottage. Central and well placed for all the local shops, restaurants etc. The cottage itself was very clean indeed, the owners only a phone call away if needed, and, responded to a little hiccup immediately. Peter himself came round on the first day of our stay to make sure everything was alright with the property and we had no problems. The wardrobe space was on the landing, plenty of drawer space, and, a very comfortable double bed. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils we could have needed, along with plenty of crockery. Only slight disappointment was the tv was very small indeed, and, no dvd player. However there were some sky channels available, and, this would not prevent us from staying here again.
