Loughrigg View description

Holiday home
Loughrigg View is a superb semi-detached cottage situated in the Lake District town of Ambleside. This cottage is set over three floors and sleeps five people in three bedrooms, consisting of one second floor king-size double with en-suite, a twin and a single, together with a bathroom. The cottage also has an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. Outside there's a small patio with furniture and parking is available in local car parks. Loughrigg View is an excellent Lake District base.

The town of Ambleside is situated at the northern tip of Lake Windermere. There's plenty to see and do here, including cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself, along with numerous shops, restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Very comfortable.. Our weather was not the best for hiking - heavy rain most days but it was such a lovely warm cottage to go back to after being soaked to the skin - our clothes dried out in no time. The location was so handy for the shops and the lovely pub just over the road, not to mention all the walks from the door. We had a great time. Thank you.

Lovely family cottage.. Close to centre, without being noisy. Very clean and well equipped.

Overall fine, top bedroom very comfortable.. Thanks for the welcome pack. Also the call from the housekeeper on the day was very kind and welcoming, she was very helpful. However, although the description was accurate the place is quite small for 5 people, especially trying to get round the table to eat together. The kitchen could do with some oven ware (we had to buy a big lidded dish to do a pot roast). The pans that were provided were good. Using the TV through the Sky box is not straightforward if the previous people have altered settings or played through other devices. A laminated idiots' guide would be good. Woodburner didn't work very well. Might be worth advising people to lock the door at night, one of our party forgot and although firmly closed, strong winds blew the door open in the night. Bit of a surprise in the morning! We are not complaining, this is just for feedback. BW Steve

The property was centrally located in Ambleside so even when it rained the cinemas were available.. Lots of walks available straight from the property.

Cottage so cosy & warm; perfect location.. Nice touch to have a Welcome tray ( a new improvement) & very well stocked with kitchen equipment. Bathrooms spotless.

Situated directly opposite the main car park in Ambleside, Loughrigg View is ideally situated for exploring the area. The accommodation was very comfortable and warm and had everything we needed for our visit. The master bedroom was beautiful with a very smart en-suite and the rest of the accommodation was of a good standard. My only criticisms are it would be useful to have a proper folder containing all the information/instructions about the accommodation in one place as well as information about the area for Lake District newbies.

This property was beautiful, very clean. All the amenities we needed. The master suite was amazing, bed was really comfy. The housekeeper was brilliant fantastic location. The pub across the street was great "The golden rule" I would definitely revisit, the was nothing about this property that I didn't like

This property was beautiful, very clean & comfortable.. The attic room is fantastic. Within spitting distance of a great pub, The Golden Rule.

Booked by parent, stayed in by author.. It was a nice place to stay, in a lovely location. We did have an incident with the key going missing, and unfortunately the only spare was with the property owner 2 hours away. However, Sykes were quite pleasant and helpful, and we were able to resolve the problem. Whilst looking for the key, we were surprised to find the property wasn't overly clean: we found quite a lot of crumbs, dust bunnies, and grease. Other than that, it was a nice stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Loughrigg View last year and although we still had a lovely time away this year - unfortunately the cleanliness of the house really was disappointing.. The house was very dusty and covered in cobwebs, the towels were old and some stained and the bedding in the main bedroom seemed to have black mould patches on it - I actually washed it myself after the first night and the house in general seemed a bit run down, with spills over the walls and a very big damp stain on the living room ceiling, which was there last year. The washer/dryer didn’t dry anything either, we had to turn the heating on and use the radiators and with 2 young children we had a fair amount of washing. We have actually re-booked for next July, in the hope it improves by then because it’s in such a good location, otherwise it will be our last stay there. It’s such a shame because it could be fantastic with a few tweaks and a good clean!

Cottage is in a good position and quiet.. Plenty of room and well equipped.

Lovely holiday.. Nice cosy cottage in a great location. Notes for improvement: The cottage could do with a wider range of cooking utensils e.g. more cutlery, cooking spoons etc. The duvet in the double bed had an orange stain (underside) on arrival. The £200 deposit for the parking permit meant we felt it was easier to buy a £30 car parking pass directly for the week instead.

A well-located, comfortable property.. No real problems, but I had the impression that the owners we're doing the bare minimum to make the house available to guests - absence of instructions for heating, washing machine etc., some slightly dirty areas, very limited visitor information, slight wear and tear, only two rubbish bags provided etc. Generally missing the "welcome factor". The house has huge potential and with a little more we effort could probably be moved into the "Exceeded" category. This isn't feedback you would want to publish, but I'll click "Yes" anyway.

Although the stay was pleasant, the description of rear seating area and photo was a bit deceiving, the seating and table were not fit for dining or sitting on and the photo does not show that basically it is a back alley of other properties.. Also not having a bin for the rubbish wasn't very apt.

Great cottage ideally placed for a great holiday - including being across the road from a pub and literally 2 minutes walk from everything Ambleside has to offer.. Brilliant!

Lovely cottage and good facilities, great location.. However the dining area was very cramped for the 4 of us (and cottage takes up to 5). Lovely holiday, thank you

An excellent town house in the best location in the heart of Ambleside.. It has everything you need for a relaxing break. The master bedroom on the top floor is superb with fantastic views.

A gorgeous cottage is always going to score highly, but the housekeeper who keeps this cottage is fantastic.. So helpful and kind and ready to help us with anything we might have needed. We have had a wonderful time and will certainly book this cottage again!

Loughrigg View is a great house in a terrific location.. Sadly it seems a bit worn and neglected compared to our last stay a year ago. This is nothing that a bit of TLC can't remedy, so here are a few suggestions: 1.) A thorough clean through - cobwebs on light fittings, crumbs in the fridge & dust behind objects on tables are not life threatening (but not very welcoming either) 2) Clean the oven - it needs it! And provide some instructions for how to use it. 3) Provide starter logs (or don't say you will) 4) If recycling facilities are not possible at the house, provide details of local recycling sites for guests who want to recycle We love Ambleside and its many amenities - we will be back but might well look for another place to stay......a shame because Loughrigg View has the potential to be really outstanding.

We use Sykes all the time when visiting the Lake District and find their accommodation superb.. We have two particularly favourite cottages we stay in at Ambleside and always try to book them for our stay.

We Stopped in this cottage last Xmas and really enjoyed the location, cleanliness and facilities, hence the reason we decided to return this Xmas.. Upon arrival we were disappointed by the facilities and cleanliness of the cottage, this is echoed in the previous occupants review. The property seems a bit neglected and needs a bit of TLC to bring it back to the minimum standards you expect. As per the previous review recommendations are listed below (including those already raised): 1.) A thorough clean throughout - cobwebs on light fittings / ceilings etc., crumbs in the fridge and cupboards, sofas & dust behind objects on tables and cupboards etc. 2) Clean the oven - it needs it! 3) Provide starter logs (or don't say you will), fortunately we brought our own supply however first before we could use it we had the clean the glass of the burner as this was all blacked up from previous use 4) Towels Stained with bleach and no hand wash provided on middle floor toilet facilities 5) Toilet Flush Button of top floor broken and working intermittently 6) A nice touch would be to provide a welcome pack upon arrival to get you started especially as we were paying top dollar for the Xmas period. When we have stopped elsewhere in Ambleside with other companies we have always received a welcome pack. We love the Lake District but sadly will not be returning to this cottage as it does not compare with other cottages in the village we have used, which is a shame as we really enjoyed our previous visit to the cottage
