Property Reviews

North Cottage
Ambleside, Ambleside/Troutbeck
Enjoyed staying in this tasteful and cosy cottage. Perfect for two with a great location to explore the local areas. Would suggest fishing on Esthwaite and walks around Elterwater and Rydal Water. Luigis italian and The Lucky Dragon chinese were our personal favourites.James & Ellie
North Cottage
Ambleside, Ambleside/Troutbeck
What a beautiful property! Stylish and elegant, clean and comfortable in the extreme. The thoughtful lighting is especially effective. All that you need for a luxury stay - thank you! North Cottages position is also superb allowing many "non-car" days and for us the proximity to "Lucy's on a Plate" (which we've loved for 20 years) is a real bonus! Impressive views over Ambleside and to Loughrigg make this a magical setting. Lots of walking, swimming, feasting and sheer relaxation. A wonderful week - we will return!Mr & Mrs Smalley
