Great location with lovely view.. Handy for walks, buses, shops. Apartment is comfortable but starting to look a little jaded.

We loved the apartment and it’s situation.. The views were lovely in all weathers and it was good to have a balcony and covered area to sit. The facilities in the apartment were excellent overall. It was lovely to sit at the table and take in the views whilst eating our meals. Parking space fine if one of the spaces in front or behind was vacant not enough room to manoeveur otherwise. We parked outside of the apartment one evening - no problem.

The apartment is really well located, with a short flight of steps taking you directly onto Ambleside's main shopping street.. Literally 2 mins to Tesco and 4 mins to Spar and Co-op. It is comfortably equipped with lots of attention to detail. The bathroom is especially good (large, with a powerful shower). There is a glass-roofed 'lobby' with loads of space to hang wet coats (or in our case to store muddy running shoes). I would re-iterate what others have said about the parking. You have a space in the centre bay in a line of three. If flats 1 and 3 have both occupied their spaces, then you will only be able to get into parking space no. 2 if you are in a fairly small car (we have a VW Golf). This is because you are restricted on the 'open' side by the wall of the apartment block, so you can only swing the front of the car out by a certain amount or you will scrape the wall. If either of the spaces 1 or 3 are empty, however, then you have no problem as you can drive straight in. So when the instructions say 'medium-sized car', take it seriously! There was no electric whisk/mixer in the kitchen. Not a big deal but my kids wanted to bake. The recycling situation is not satisfactory. You basically throw all of your rubbish into a single bin located outside the front door. If you want to recycle then a note in the flat advises you to go to a public recycling centre in Ambleside. This may be the fault of the council rather than the flat owners, but surely there is provision for household recycling collection in Ambleside? All in all, a very well located and well equipped flat, with lovely views a bonus.

This apartment has a wonderful location with a brilliant view from the balcony but still just two minutes walk from the town.. It was well equipped with comfortable beds and a very good bathroom and shower. We were accompanied by our 18 year old daughter and her boyfriend who were out and about a lot which helped with space. It is quite small for four people, but it was very warm during the week we were there, and we didn't feel particularly cramped. We were able to use the balcony for sitting out on as well as the living room which has a very comfortable sofa big enough for two. The dining table folds out to seat four comfortably for meals. There is also an additional sitting area in the front porch which traps the heat very effectively. The TV had plenty of on demand channels and WiFi was good. The parking space is a bit tricky and we were lucky that the space behind wasn't being used which left us a bit more wiggle room. In fact, we only moved the car once during the week as there is so much to do from Ambleside itself. We got a useful pack of easy to follow walks from tourist information, it's also only ten minutes walk to the pier and we got all day tickets for the boats, buses are frequent and we also enjoyed the cinema, cafes and restaurants in town. A great little base in a great little town. Highly recommended.

Amazing views from balcony.. Great location. Front door lock very temperamental. Parking. Thankfully only 2 other cars there otherwise parking would have been very tricky.

It was very hot, the flat faces SW, so gets sun most of day.. Living room is like an oven, could do with cooling fan in extreme conditions as we've had. Living room carpet looked like it needed deep cleaning. But that is only criticism, very pleased, great flat for two, good location, balcony was fab for good weather. Loved it.

Problem with car parking we had small car as advised but people in other cottages had large cars and made it impossible on a no of times for us to park.. We loved location and views. Plenty of room for two but not 4 we managed with 3 could do with another comfortable chair sofa only big enough for 2.Cottage clean and well equipped. Loved the birds that visited verandah.

Perfect location ideal for a couple or a family with small children bedside table would have been nice and full length hanging space in main bedroom.. Would stay there again

The property is in a great location- close to the centre of Ambleside and with great views.. It is very well appointed. The listing makes it clear that the car parking space is only suitable for a smaller car. We managed to use the space successfully because many of the other spaces were empty and we have a rear camera on our car. However without a camera and if others were using the car park it would have been extremely difficult as one would have to reverse some distance down a narrow space between a wall and other parked cars and then parallel park in the space provided. It is not simply a small parking space in which one can bay park. I think that should be made more clear on the listing so people know what to expect.

The perfect little home from home in our perfect location.. Literally a stones throw from all the amenities of the lovely village of Ambleside, whilst also having that great get away feel by being completely silent at night. The apartment is situated on a road running parallel to one of the main streets into the village, with the benefit of being up the hill so the views are beautiful and easily appreciated as you sit and have breakfast either at the dining table or out on the balcony. The apartment couldn't have provided a more lovely place to stay for me and my husband, with an ideal kitchen for us to eat in on occasions, a great bathroom with massive shower and a very cosy bedroom. We didn't need the second bedroom but it is adiquate space for two children. The lounge has a smart tv which meant we could log in to our Netflix account as well as watch freeview. The lounge itself is very comfy for two people and I'm sure would fit young children as well. We really hope we can stay here again as it had everything we needed and is situated in a great location for all the lakes we wanted to explore.

Very comfortable and clean property, wonderful view over the town and the nearby mountains, very well equipped kitchen, great to have parking space so near.. Would certainly like to book this again!

This partment is amazing. It was a home away from home. Everything was supplied we only had to top up on a few things. It was very clean and spotless. Wifi was great to have too. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bathroom is lovely. The views from the balcony and sun room are amazing. The beds are comfortable too. We would definitely stay here again. Parking can be slightly awkward if the visitors in the other apartments have large cars. There is parking in the nearby side streets. Lovely restaurants in Ambleside and a Tesco, Spar and Co-op in town. We will be back!

This was a fantastic flat with all the mod cons; a real home away from home.. We loved the view and would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family.

The property was in good position to explore the rest of the Lake District and the view from the balcony was beautiful.

A very clean, well equipped apartment, close walking distance to centre of Ambleside. Has all the amenities that are needed. Nothing negative to say.

The property was in a wonderful location overlooking Ambleside; we loved the views from the balcony. It was very warm and cosy to return to after a day out walking and there were loads of walks from the property so we hardly needed to use the car.
Mr Wilkinson

We felt that the quality of the furnishings and in particular, the entertainment system in Todd Crag was above what we have seen in other holiday accommodation. Although small, the apartment had everything we wanted for our stay and we would definitely make a return booking. As the apartment was up on a hill, the views were stunning and the french doors to the balcony made this aspect really special.

A great apartment with superb views. It was ideally situated for Ambleside centre and the lakes.

The property was very well equipped and in a perfect location right in the centre of Ambleside. There is everything you need in the apartment with stunning views over the surrounding hills and fells. We had a fantastic week here and would certainly return in the summer. The apartment is very well furnished with very good quality mattresses on the beds which were extremely comfortable. The property also has a good TV and entertainment system.

This was one of the nicest property's we have stayed in at in the Lakes. It was very clean, cosy and comfortable and only a short distance from the centre of Ambleside. Would love to come again and have already recommended to friends.
