We had booked the Ghyllside apartment as a base for the Great North swim having previously stayed in the Jasmine apartment last year. Despite the swim being cancelled, we decided to have a weekend away anyway, and were not disappointed. The welcome is always warm, and the whole site is extremely picturesque. The apartment is well-furnished and equipped, and a...

Superb apartments, extremely high standard of accomodation and cleanliness. Ideally situated in the centre of Ambleside and within easy walking distance to eat out. Highly recommended. Ann & David, Kilmarnock

Once again we have retured from our second home. This accommodation is by far the best place to stay in Ambleside if you are looking for self catering and appreciate lovely, clean and well equipted accommodation which is right on the door step of the town centre, then book these, you won't be dissapointed.

First time we have stayed at Kirkstone Foot. The location was brilliant, just a short walk away from the shops. Peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The staff made you feel very welcome and were always on hand if you needed anything. The rooms were very nice and cozy, and i was very impressed with the full size fridge freezer...

We first visited Kirkstone Foot Apartments when they opened in 2001 and have been regular visitors ever since. We have been taking self catering holidays for over 50 years at both home and abroad and can honestly say that these rate among the very best. There is always a warm welcome from the helpful and friendly owners and staff. the...

Just back from a fantastic week at the exceptionally well run Kirkstone Foot holiday cottages. Stayed for a week with my husband, my parents and 2 young children under 6. We stayed in Elterwater apartment and found it to be just as impressive as our stay last year in Garden Side Apartment. The apartments are exceptionally well looked after, clean,...

Stayed 3 nights in High Spy. Location awesome. Parking onsite. Unit large and spacious, good views, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms. Very basic accomodation. I would rate as 2 Star according to North American standards. While unit was large and did have a fully kitted kitchen, placemats, coasters etc, the decor was rather cheap , towels threadbare,skimpy little tablets of soap...

We have stayed three times so far, in Langdale, Kentmere and most recently in Orchid and found each equally to be fitted and furnished to a very high standard. Without doubt we will be returning to enjoy more holidays confident that these standards will be maintained. We particularly enjoy its quiet location which is so close to the amenities of...
