This is a very spacious and light bungalow just a short walk from Ambleside. The location is quiet and within easy reach of some fantastic scenery. Our stay was comfortable and once inside the bungalow it worked successfully for our daughter who is in a wheelchair.
Nice and cosy place, really enjoyed the fireplace in the living room, kept everyone warm during the cold rainy weather. Rooms are all very clean and tidy on arrival, kitchen was well equipped with utensils. Word of advice, could do with more complimentary sugar for the teas and coffee as 6 packets of sugar wasn't enough to share between 6 people having a brew. Also the hot water tap on the bath tub is abit slow at generating hot water for a bath, turn the tap on too much and you get warm water, turn it on low, you get hot water but you're gonna be waiting a good while for that hot bath that is needed after a long day of walking in the cold and rain. Overall it's a wonderful place to stay for location wise as next to the waterfalls, warm and cosy, well equipped, clean and tidy. Thank you Rani for having us. Will definitely come again in the future
We stayed in this bungalow for a family trip to the Lakes with two young boys. It suited us nicely. It is very close to Ambleside shops & restaurants although the hill into town is *extremely* steep (it is the Lakes after all!). The bungalow wasn't decorated to our taste but it was spotless and spacious, and when we had a problem with the heating the local lady was out the same day to fix it.
Two things to be careful of: the gateway to the drive is very narrow, (our Ford SMax only just scraped through, anything bigger wouldn't fit and there is zero on-road parking). Also, the cottage is listed as "wheelchair accessible" on Tripadvisor, but we didn't agree as we had to lift our son's wheelchair up a step to go in either the front or back door, plus there is a small internal step to the dining room. Not a big problem for us, but do be wary if you require accessible accommodation.

The property was clean throughout with a very well-equipped kitchen. Whilst it isn't a luxurious property, the beds are very comfy, showers work well and there is plenty of space for a family of five. The location is excellent - 5 min walk to the centre of Amberside with lots of amenities and 15 mins drive to Windermere. We have had a lovely holiday and the property has served us well. Thank you.
