    Practically perfect in every way - lovely little cottage close to the centre of Ambleside providing an ideal base for exploring the Lake District. Cosy and welcoming to come back to after our days exploring in the rain. Only parking for one car but a reasonably priced car park about 2 minutes walk from cottage. Hope to return soon!

    Fantastic little cottage with a parking spot in the centre of Ambleside. Very cosy and comfortable. If you can i would go with your own logs if you plan on using to log burner rather than paying premium at a nearby Spar. We would certainly go here again.

    A Stone's Throw Cottage is a small but beautifully formed bolthole from the world and a perfect base from which to explore the hills around Ambleside and Grasmere. It’s cozy and comfortable, has a fabulous shower to warm up under after a wet walk and a log fire for chilling out in front of. There’s a great pub 72 steps away (I counted them) and the town has a range of places to eat to satisfy every taste and budget, all within walking distance. And it has off-road parking, which is rarer than chicken’s teeth in Ambleside. It’s not perfect - if you’re six foot or over you’ll need to duck most of the time, the well-appointed kitchen is small, and it’s more a cottage for two than for four - but I really enjoyed my stay and was sad to leave. I’d definitely stay here again.

    Great location for walks from the door. Ideal for local shops and restaurants. On the minus side if you are over 5ft 8 you will need to watch your head on the beams. Kitchen was a little small if you need to pull the table out. We had a great time and would recommend the cottage to our friends and family.

    Good location, and lots of character, if a little on the small side for 4 people. Parking space is a bonus, but with 4 cottages sharing the space, parking could be a bit on the tight side, but adequate for 4 Med/Small cars. Lots of pubs, restaurants and shops within a very short walking distance.
