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.
