March 2020 "Wonderful cottage, very clean and spacious. Ample storage space. Fabulous stay, great walks. Much thanks and gratitude for our first and one of many stays in Ash Tree Cottage."

February 2020 "What a wonderful stay we have had in this fabulous cottage. To say you provide everything is an understatement - "above and beyond" springs to mind. We have done some lovely walks - Loughrigg Fell was challenging and yesterday we walked to Grasmere. The cottage is so close to the pubs and restaurants and in a beautiful location. We will be back for certain."

February 2020 "First time in Ambleside and Ash Tree Cottage. The cottage was perfect, really well equipped and just far enough from the crowds. Everything was provided. The weather has been wild but dressed correctly we still got out on the fells and enjoyed the stunning scenery. Thanks for the welcome gifts, we will hopefull return at some point."

February 2020 "As returning guests we have enjoyed another fabulous break in Ash Tree Cottage. Immaculate and extremely well equipped as always. Had a lovely week enjoying all the splendour of The Lakes in winter - without rain! Didn't even move the car - used a bus ticket. Thanks for the welcome gifts - a really lovely gesture. Will soon return."

January 2020 "Another lovely stay in Ash Tree Cottage, much enjoyed and the cottage is everything you would wish for. We weren't so lucky with the weather, and had an "interesting" walk over the flooded fields but it all adds to the experience! I'm sure we will be back."

December 2019 "This is the second Christmas here and we love it.  Didn't leave the cottage for the first two days as too cosy in front of the fire with a glass of champagne watching Liverpool win the Club World Cup.  We travelled so much lighter this year as the cottage has everything you need and the welcome pack is such a lovely touch. Thank you for making our Christmas special."
