“A superb base for a walking holiday in the Lake District”
Clear and easy to follow directions brought us to the delights of Juniper Cottage and the bonus of a specific parking space right outside the door. The cottage was clean and very well laid out and had everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We had taken our dog with us and there was a special rug to put down for him too. They was a great selection of Dvds, books and games and maps and information of the local area. Everything had been thought of. We particularly liked having a washer/drier and the kitchen was very well appointed and had everything in it you could need. It isn't a huge cottage but neither did it feel cramped at all and for a couple it was perfect. You didn't get the feeling at all that it had been filled with unwanted furniture or kitchen equipment from someone's main home as you can sometimes get in self catering places. Ambleside has just about everything you need on a daily basis with plenty of shops and eating out options and is very pleasant for a stroll around in the evening. As the whole courtyard the cottage is in is made up of holiday lettings there was no awkwardness of getting under the feet of locals, but you were still in the midst of the local town which was nice. The only slight point would be that the bathroom could do with an update at some point as it looks a little bit tired in places (especially the ceiling) and the shower isn't the most powerful in the world. But the bathtub is huge, the hot water plentiful and that is very welcome after a day on the fells. The bed was comfortable, but the lighting in the bedroom is quite dim especially compared to downstairs and the "mood lighting" didn't work. The bed had been made up but the bottom sheet was very creased and hadn't been put on properly and the towels provided were a bit thin. Overall though we were delighted with our choice and had a very enjoyable stay and will undoubtedly be back in the future.

“Comfortable, relaxing and well resourced.”
The cottage was very well resourced and comfortable. It is sited very close to the centre of ambleside but away from the crowds. Everything you needed was in the cottage, TV, DVD, Music system, internet access (Wi-Fi)and all of the necessary equipment - washer/drier, dishwasher, microwave etc.
The cottage was fine but we thought it could do with a Hoover also the outside did not have it's own bench thanks.
“A very comfortable and enjoyable holiday.”
We found the cottage very clean and well equipped for all our needs. The cottage was in an excellent location within easy access to lots of restaurants and pubs also near the bus stop. We liked the fact that there was a number of walks to choose from that started from ambleside. What we liked least was the cottage was a little dark downstairs, you needed the lights on most of the time.
“Great little place”
Everything you need from a weekend cottage. Great location a couple of mins walk to the main town and off street parking which was great as other stays we have done in ambleside you have to use the public car parks. Will definitely look it up again when we next visit ambleside.
“A lovely first experience of the Lake District”
Juniper cottage is a traditional stone built cottage that was a cosy and warm place to stay at whilst exploring the Lake District. The cottage was clean and had everything that you would need especially a washer/dryer for rain soaked clothes, a dish washer and there was WiFi provided.The location was spot on, it was a short walk into the center of ambelside and also to lake windermere where you can buy a freedom of the lake ticket and spend the whole day hoping on and off at ports around the lake. The cottage was very dog friendly and there were some pubs and cafes that allowed dogs in. I will definitely be returning to Juniper cottage with my dog.
“very cozy, well equipped”
We spent a lovely week in this cottage. It is well equipped to cook meals and it is really clean. The only caveat we have is the heating. It was a rather cold week and the electric storage heating and fan heater struggled to warm the place up after coming home from walks in the freezing cold. But this should not be a problem in warmer months.
“a lucky find”
We rented Juniper Cottage last thing on Friday night before being due to go on holiday the first day, and how pleased we were. Juniper is a lovely little cottage an so well appointed with everything you could possibly want and so well thought out for a holiday in the Lakes District with little things like coat hooks and boot racks in the small entrance hall, so useful to hang a wet coat and take off muddy boots before going in the living area. Also the cottage is well placed near to the town centre with a private parking space where your car is safe off the road. We would certainly stay there again if required.
We had a lovely time staying in ambleside, the cottage was comfortable, cosy and perfect location for the centre of ambleside. Juniper is very well equiped which made our stay like a home from home. Thank you
“A great holiday”
