Great place to stay, superb location and larger than we (2 of us) expected. The house is spacious with comfortable beds, quiet location but still 5 minutes walk from the heart of Ambleside. Competitively priced. If I were to nitpick, the decor feels little bit dated in places, it is not ultra-modern if that's your style and the driveway was a little bit of a squeeze for my (larger) car but plenty enough. Everything is in good condition, very clean and tidy - kept to a good standard and I had a professional feel about the let and the owner who was friendly and responsive. Highly recommended and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage. It was cozy, charming and well appointed. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to be centrally located in the Lake District.

Wonderful house in a great location. The house has everything that you could need to settle in for a few days and feel at home. There were only three of us but the house could easily accommodate six. I would definitely return to the house and to the beautiful location.

We stayed here for 3 nights as a group of 5. Communication with Rani was easy although we did not meet her. The house is clean, central (although mind the steep hill if you are walking home and the driveway if you have a car!) and all necessary amenities are offered. Highly recommended.

Great place to stay for touring the Lakes. Place was very clean and comfortable. For a couple of things we required the housekeeper was quick to respond. We will be considering staying at Rani's place again when we holiday in Cumbria.

Great place to stay, just as described. Ideal for 2 couples. Perfect location very easy to walk in to town, choice of numerous restaurants and cafes. Great walks from the town. Rani was very easy to communicate with.

A comfortable and cosy cottage, that provided us with a perfect, central base to call home for the weekend of The Great North Swim. Although a little dated, it has everything you might need for a comfortable holiday break. The layout of the bungalow is ideal for guests who might battle with stairs or for small children. And Rani's communication was friendly and very helpful.
