Once again, a wonderful and comfortable stay in his great little apartment in the heart of Ambleside (not Amble as stated in the heading!).
Having parked the car (which despite the warnings is perfectly straightforward) we bought bus passes for the week and were able to forget about traffic jams and parking spaces for the entire holiday. It worked out brilliantly for walking too.
Anyway, staying in Tom Heights is a delight. The comfortable bed, compact layout, well-equipped kitchen and lovely, bright living room make for a really relaxed holiday.
There are several great pubs and restaurants nearby. The proximity to Zeffirelli's cinema and restaurant is a particular bonus.
We love Tom Heights and we'll definitely be returning.
Right in the centre of Ambleside but with parking so we could leave the car and walk. Well equipped rental and clean and comfortable. We needed a flexible start date so this was great to find. Traffic was noisy in a morning but we are early risers and got out before the crowds - especially important if we wanted to use the car. Ambleside is central for lots of lovely walks to suit all abilities and various attractions including some interesting National Trust properties
This little apartment has everything two people need in Ambleside. The location is brilliant. Pubs, cafés, restaurants and shops are all within a two-minute walk and the legendary Zeffirelli's cinema and restaurant is right next door. You can even avoid having to make your own morning coffee by nipping across the road to Esquire's!
The delightful living room is very cosy and comfortable. There is a good selection of books and local maps. The TV has a DVD player.
There is just the right amount of equipment for two people in the smart kitchen which has a full cooker, a microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. They even throw in a welcome bottle of wine!
This is definitely the hidden gem of Ambleside. Tastefully decorated, well equipped and comfortable.
We were a little put off at first because of previous comments about parking. We have a 4x4 and reversed into the parking spot with no trouble.
Very handy for restaurants, pubs and cinema. We would stay again if we return to Ambleside.
We loved this apartment! When we first arrived we were rather apprehensive as the entrance hall was bare floorboards and smelt damp but a note (with a nice bottle of red wine) in the apartment explained it was due to the floods that Ambleside suffered earlier in the year. As soon as we walked in we felt at home. The kitchen was very modern and well equipped and the décor in the whole apartment was warm and welcoming. The rooms were bigger than we expected with plenty of storage space in the bedroom. The location was excellent for proximity to the centre of the village and 2 minutes walk would find cinemas, restaurants and shops. The only minor issue we had was with noise from the street - we got used to the traffic noise but unfortunately there were a few occasions of drunken revellers! If you want scenic views from your accommodation this maybe not for you but a short walk/drive gives you all the scenery you could ask for.
