Location description from owner

The England region

The Lake District of England is a very special place and has always been a popular holiday destination. It is famous for its lakes and mountains. As well as its poets and artists.Naturally activities such as hiking and cycling are popular in the region. The magnificent views which can be seen while on a hike are breathtaking.For more details of the area visit Ambleside Online at www.amblesideonline.co.uk

Ambleside

Ambleside is central to the Lake District so most people are attracted by the proximity of the fells and lakes. But it has many other amenities not usually found in a rural location. There is an excellent cinema, tennis courts, bowling green plus a large number of bars and restaurants ranging from budget to gourmet! Boat trips across Lake Windermere can be taken from Waterhead Pier which is again a short stroll from the cottage.

“Fantastic cottage in a brilliant location.”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2015

My partner and I stayed in Blue Hill Cottage in the first week in June. Upon our arrival we were instantly impressed by how cosy and well-equipped the cottage is. The kitchen has everything you could want to prepare meals (hob, oven, microwave, crockery, pans, etc.). the lounge is comfortable, with two sofas, an open fireplace and TV. The bathroom has a power shower over the bath and the bedrooms are compact but comfortable. We were also impressed by how clean and tidy every room is - immaculate, was the word that sprung to mind. For our stay, we were blessed with fine weather and we found Blue Hill Cottage to be ideally situated - literally minutes walk downhill to the shops and restaurants of Ambleside. We were near enough to keep popping back to the cottage throughout the day to drop off shopping and to freshen up, but at night it was silent. Leaving the cottage and heading away from Ambleside, we were ten minutes stroll from Waterhead at the top of Lake Windermere, where we took advantage of the lovely evenings for after-dinner walks by the lakeside. During our week, we travelled all over the Lake District by bus and it was always a delight to return to Blue Hill Cottage in the evenings. It felt more like 'home' than a mere holiday let and we would certainly love to stay there again in the future. To round off this review I would like to suggest a couple of places to eat out in Ambleside. Firstly Lucy's in Church Street is fantastic. The atmosphere is "shabby chic", the service is great and the food is amazing. If Thai food is to your taste, you couldn't do better than visit The Doi Intanon, in the old market hall, at the top of Market Place. We can't recommend the food and service highly enough. Neither my partner, Jane, nor I had eaten Thai food before, but we are both now hooked after eating here. And last, but not least, we heartily recommend The Apple Pie Shop in Rydal Rd. Apart from the most divine apple pie, they also serve incredible breakfasts (try the Mexican with tortilla strips, Salsa tomatoes, refried beans and scrambled egg). All in all we had a fantastic holiday in Ambleside and couldn't have hoped for better accommodation than Blue Hill Cottage. Thanks, Jenny, for a marvellous stay.

“fantastic location”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

The best thing about this rental has to be in incredible view from the hill as you walk out. Just breath-taking. The cottage itself is very nice and contains everything necessary for a comfortable stay. It is very small and cosy. however, so unless you're one of those immensely tidy families I'd recommend no more than two people to stay here at once! Also, the exterior of the cottage is wonderfully looked after and full of greenery. We had a great stay overall.

“Perfect for our family of two adults and two teenage daughters”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2014

Such a cute place, we all loved Blue Hill Cottage; probably the favourite of our 5 week holiday in the UK and the continent. It was located perfectly; the town in one direction and the lake in the other. It was very homely and had everything we needed for a comfy stay. Although it wasn't very cold when we were there, there was one cooler night where we couldn't resist lighting the fire and it kept the temperature inside just right. We were out and about all day and when we came home we didn't feel at all cramped and all happily sat in the lounge area or the kids up in the room on their IPads using the free WIFI. It was perfect for our family and I would stay again in a heartbeat.

“A perfect holiday in a perfect cottage.”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2014

As soon as we arrived in Blue Hill Cottage, we felt at home. The cottage had everyone that we wanted and more and the attention to detail, such as coal for the fire, tea and coffee in the kitchen, bird seed to feed the birds and a throw rug to cuddle under at night made our stay very comfortable. Also, there was very good, very reliable internet, which was great, as my husband's work sometimes requires him to work from home, and the internet at the house was excellent. The house is small, only living room and kitchen downstairs and two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, but it suited us and our two daughters (aged 11 and 9) very well. The location is perfect as The house is very quiet, but it very close to all the shops and to the lovely town, so although we had it nice and peaceful, we didn't feel at all cut off. There are plenty of maps and guides in the house, which helped us plan our days out, which was very helpful. The bathroom was large and very clean and the kitchen had all that we wanted and was large enough to cook anything we wanted. Jenny was very helpful in our booking process and the self check in and out worked very well. I would gladly stay here again and I would recommend this place to all my friends and family. The area is just gorgeous and there are many walks you can do from the house. We were very sad to leave.

“cosy cottage and fantastic walks”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2014

Our third visit to Blue Hill and it is rapidly becoming a home from home, love the location with great walks and restaurants nearby. The owners look after the cottage so well and booking process is very easy. Highly recommended.

“Exceptional value for money”

Reviewed 21 May 2014

Blue Hill Cottage was a wee cottage nestled in the back of a complex up a hill with panoramic views of hills across the Windermere valley. The cottage itself was exceptionally well equipped and extremely clean. We were sorry to not have requirement for the beautiful fireplace, which must be an absolute treat in the colder months. The beds were really comfy - very important after we completed the Windermere marathon! Ambleside was a stroll down the hill away, and there are plenty of places to choose from to eat and drink there. For what the cottage provided, in terms of location, scenery, provision and cleanliness, this was tremendous value for money. A real treat. The owner was extremely helpful and prompt in responding to correspondence.

“needs updating”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2014

The house was the perfect size for just 2 of us, however the bathroom needs updating. (bath panels need repairing) the heating was adequate but not great (radiators did not heat properly) coal fire a bonus as we have one at home also the top of the stairs led straight into the bedrooms (if you forgot that during the night without a light on you could end up taking a tumble down them.) The house retains much of the original character which is lovely and we did have an enjoyable week. The house is only a short walk from the centre of Ambleside which has plenty of great facilities, shops, garden centre, local walks and plenty of places to eat out.

“excellent accomodation”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2014

compact and warm cottage near to main street but up a hill which would not suit some . The private parking space is great . The cottage warms up quickly and keeps the heat well . The stairs are a bit steep but no problem for us walkers . The kitchen area is well stocked .

“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2013

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage, 3 adults was a bit cosy but we were lucky enough to be able to eat outside in the grassed courtyard every evening. Generally very well equipped - only problem we had is that the fridge/freezer is actually a fridge with a tiny icebox inside but the residents in number one came to our rescue and let us keep some frozen food in their freezer. The residents around the courtyard helped to make the holiday, the communal BBQ they invited us to join in with on the last night meant a lovely end to a very relaxing break. Would definitely return.

“perfect break to break up the winter gloom”

Reviewed 1 May 2013

This was a return visit to Blue Hil in Ambleside and it was nice to note that the owners had introduced internet showing that they care about reviews and respond to feedback. We had a lovely peaceful stay again, perfect for re-charging batteries and we were blessed with some of the sunniest weather we'd had all winter. The cottage is a great base to explore the scenery via walks and you can go on several walks right from the front door. A favourite of this trip was the walk up Wansfell Pike and over the the Mortal Man Pub in Troutbeck and back - would definitely recommend. The cottage is small but very cosy, certainly better for 2 adults and two children rather than 4 adults but when my parents turned up as a surprise to mark my birthday we managed to all fit in!
