"Gillian’s House was gorgeous and grand with a perfect location and stunning view. The walk we did started in our own back garden! We had everything we needed and we were also allowed and extra hour to check out in the morning which was very useful. Would definitely recommend for a friends’ or family retreat!"

"Gillian and her family were extremely hospitable during our stay. We arrived a bit earlier than expected but were allowed into the property early as it was already ready. Although we had brought some bits with us, it was lovely to see little bits such as milk, bread, coffee, butter, jam etc for us to use during our stay. The property itself is beautiful and roomy which was perfect for a group of 8 of us and the views were absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend."

"Absolutely stunning place ! Location could be more beautiful, it’s a great value for money. House is very stylish, well equipped, clean and located 2 minutes away from the lake! Beautiful garden is also available. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend!"

"Great location and great hosts! We loved our stay at Gillian's. The home was lovely and had virtually everything we needed for our weekend. Gillian and her husband were great for advice about what to see in the local area and what we could do with our dog in tow (She even went kayaking with us). The house is a short walk into Ambleside where we rented kayaks at the local youth hostel and a further walk into the village for the ferry, food, or shopping. Thanks so much!"

"What a fantastic place to stay. We were 3 couples and a handful children looking for a place to stay for a night as we explored the local area and the house was superb. Everyone commented on how fantastic it was. Gillian and her husband were fantastic hosts. We'd love to stay again!!!"

"Absolutely LOVE this place. Literally the perfect location - peace and quiet with amazing views over Windermere - but close enough to walk to Ambleside. Gillian was a great host, available if we needed her, really friendly and her and David have two lovely dogs who played really well with our spaniel. Can't wait to go back!"

"Gillian is everything you want in a host and the property was fantastic. The pictures don't do it justice, the rooms were large, the beds were massive and high quality. We had 8 people fitting comfortably in the living room and dining room. Gillian was also very helpful providing us with local information and a firestick remote as we forgot ours!"
