- A comfortable little cottage apartment a stones throw from the centre of Ambleside and its local amenities. The cottage was very warm and left us needing very little to make our break a good one. The kitchen facilities were good, the lounge was comfortable and very quiet.
It was lovely to have the flexibility of both shower and a bath coming home from our wet walking days with a bedroom comfortable with a nice garden view. Parking space was excellent and left us not needing to drive all week.
Our only very minor points of note are that we missed not having an area to dry our very wet walking clothing and walking boots each day and very minor point was we couldn't get BBC1 on the TV channel but no major issue as we enjoyed reading our books and playing cards.

Hi Helen, very many thanks for your comments. I'm delighted to hear you had such a lovely time at Iveing Cottage Apartment! I've spoken to the owners about drying areas, and I believe that there is a hanging rail and hooks just past the kitchen, but the owners have taken on board your suggestion and also added an airer, so there's lots more space to hang those soggy clothes! I've also mentioned the issue you had with getting BBC1, which they can only imagine was to do with that unfortunate stormy weather we had during your stay. They are actually planning on replacing the Sky box with a new Freesat box, so hopefully if it is anything more than the weather conditions causing a BBC1 outage, the new box will rectify this!
It really is a great spot for walking, isn't it. even on a rainy day! Here's to more fabulous fell top adventures!
