Cranford is very well situated near the centre of ambleside on the main road into town. The only slight downside being that it is above a Chinese Restaurant, so during the evening there is minor background noise. The apartment was very spacious with 3 good sized bedrooms as well as a lounge and kitchen. There is a flight of steps up to the entrance which may not suit retired folks or young children. The owner lives across the way and is available to greet you and easy to contact if needed.

In the middle of bustling ambleside but with loads of walking straight from the door, we never once felt the need to use the car. The little Cinema just up the road was an uexpected bonus.

Loved this place. It was such a lovely little cottage in the centre of Ambleside. The lady who owed it was VERY pleasant and ensured we had everything we needed and if we needed any help we could just give her a knock and she'd be their. Simple things such as having a pint of milk in the fridge for when we got their were an added bonus and all tea and coffee etc was provided.
Would definately recommend it and next time i go back i hope there's space left.

Cottage was nice spacious .We all enjoyed staying in a charming location with off street parking a boon. The only problem was it needed a better heating system.
At your convenience!

A very friendly welcome from the very first phone call - sounded like home from home.
Good directions and a warm welcome with the essential tea, milk and sugar provided and the warm welcome continues. Friendly throughout the week but without being intrusive.
The flat was warm with everything needed for a comfortable stay. A great place to come back to after a day out and a great place to stay warm and cosy on those inevitable wet days.
Shops, take-aways, restaurants, pubs (food) all within a short stroll.
We left the car parked in the private space outside the flat most of the time and took walks starting from the flat or just a short bus ride away.
A great place to stay and being able to smoke in the dry on the wet and windy day was a great bonus.

Right in the middle of Ambleside; you couldn't want for a better location. Bars, food and views all within short walking distances.
Very spacious, good facilities and off-street parking.
