Great cottage, the rooms were clean and tidy. The size of the property was excellent with plenty of space. Kitchen was spacious and filled with everything you would need to cook for yourself. Shower facilities were excellent and the beds were extremely comfortable. Enough room to park in front. Ideal location to explore the lakes. Ambleside nearby has loads of places to eat or to have a coffee. Mr KILEY ROUND - 20th September 2018
