Myself my partner and son stayed for a long weekend and could not have had a better experience. The cottage is immaculate and location perfect. The owners really go above and beyond to make sure your stay is everything you are looking for. Would highly recommend staying here.
We are coming to the end of a 3 day stay at the end of May. The cottage is spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect between Ambleside town centre and Waterhead. According to other posts which say parking is narrow...Well we have a Mercedes A Class and it fitted quite nicely next to a big BMW X5 with no problems at all. The fact that the cottage is also dog friendly just makes it fabulous. The place is a perfect little hideaway for a relaxing stay in the lakes. Will be sad to leave today.
Thank you so much Margaret for the wine and essentials left it was such a lovely thought. X
EXCELLENT dog friendly cottage situated just 10 mins walk from lake windermere.... this cottage has everything you need its like being home from home... we stayed Monday to Friday for our anniversary and on arrival Margaret had very kindly left us a balloon and a lovely bottle of wine to celebrate (thankyou so much x) aswell as bread milk juice and everyday cleaning products, its a great little cottage just mins away from the shops bars and restaurants but if you prefer after a busy day out its just perfect to relax..... Margaret is literally at the end of the phone should you need her which is really handy... should we return to the lakes we wont hesitate in returning to 2 the old coach house, me my husband and our dog penny absolutely loved it...... thankyou so much Margaret for everything, you really have got a beautiful cottage, we made some great memories that will last a lifetime............. xxxx
This cottage is very quirky in its layout but was perfect for three of us and a dog. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking. The cottage is perfectly placed for walking into Ambleside for the restaurants and pubs. The fact that it takes dogs is great and ours loved it! Margaret was a lovely host and was very communicative and left us a nice bottle of wine and some basics for when we arrived which was a nice touch. The parking isn't for a large car but my Honda Civic fitted in just fine. We had the large bedroom which overlooks the kitchen and was a lovely airy room. All in all, a briliant place to stay and, if you have a dog, far better than a hotel in our opinion.
Shockingly it's almost a year since we stayed here! But we still remember it vividly! What a gorgeous and quirky wee cottage! Ideally placed in the centre of Ambleside. Handy for all local amenities. Fabulous attention to detail from booking enquiry to checking out! We will hopefully be back sometime soon
