Fantastic week at Riverside Retreat, situated a short walk into town, the road at the end can be a little tricky as it is very busy, if you go round the back of the property along the stream for about 8 minutes, go over a bridge and head into town via the park especially if you have young children. All in all the property is very clean and all the rooms are spotless, plenty of parking outside the cottage for 3/4 cars, although the property lacks ample space outside to eat or chill this really is a gem of a place and I would not have a problem in recommending Riverside Retreat.

Hi Guy, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you had an amazing week, it's a lovely place to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while isn't it? I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Riverside Retreat is a wonderful cottage - light and spacious, well equipped, an easy walk along a back road into Ambleside. Our second visit. Everything was spotlessly clean. Lots of local information available in the cottage. Plenty of walks nearby to suit all abilities. So much to see and do in the area. Useful utility room and bike storage area at the cottage too. We watched deer, the local heron and resident ducks - all from the cottage windows. An excellent stay in a 5/5 star cottage. Highly recommended.

Hi Caroline, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your second stay as much as the first. It's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? I bet it was a real treat seeing the local wildlife up close! I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
