Visited several times but the friendly welcome is always the same. Even in November and March the apartments are always cosy - and spotlessly clean. Good for dining out in Ambleside as you can walk down the hill to the wide choice of "eateries" and leave your car in your reserved space. The sound of Stock Ghyll will lull you...

Without repeating what has been written in earlier reviews the fact that this was our third and certainly not our last stay at Kirkstone Foot confirms that the apartments offer exactly what we want from our Lake District trips. Comfortable and convenient accommodation. Friendly and helpful staff. Only two minutes walk from the pubs, restaurants and shops with the added...

We had booked the Ghyllside apartment as a base for the Great North swim having previously stayed in the Jasmine apartment last year. Despite the swim being cancelled, we decided to have a weekend away anyway, and were not disappointed. The welcome is always warm, and the whole site is extremely picturesque. The apartment is well-furnished and equipped, and a...

Once again we have retured from our second home. This accommodation is by far the best place to stay in Ambleside if you are looking for self catering and appreciate lovely, clean and well equipted accommodation which is right on the door step of the town centre, then book these, you won't be dissapointed.

We have been taking self catering holidays for over 50 years at both home and abroad and can honestly say that these rate among the very best. There is always a warm welcome from the helpful and friendly owners and staff. the...
