- We loved our winter stay at the Dower House and its stunning location just yards from the door of Wray Castle with views across the lake towards Wansfell and Ambleside. The cottage was exceptionally clean and well-equipped, in addition to which Margaret had added some thoughtful Christmassy touches including a tree and decorations. It was warm and cosy, and we felt immediately at home. We especially loved the covered verandah and spent hours watching and photographing the many visiting birds. Nearby are good footpaths to Ambleside and Hawkshead (about 3 miles each) and, in summer, the ferry would also run to Ambleside. Margaret and Charlie were helpful, friendly hosts who made us feel extremely welcome. We look forward to returning soon and would highly recommend whether you want a walking holiday or a peaceful relaxing break.
