Park up and enter Copt How through the boot room to the side of the house, a great place to store all your outdoor walking gear and equipment and adjacent utility with washer/dryer. There’s a handy cloakroom with basin and WC and a pantry just off the fully fitted kitchen where you’ll find an electric double oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge/freezer. Access the outside from here and the fully enclosed patio garden with outdoor furniture and secure bike storage.

The spacious lounge dining room with comfy sofa has a wood-burning stove and garden outlook whilst the second lounge across the hall displays some interesting original paster work and has deep-cushioned leather sofas arranged around the open fireplace.

A rear hallway leads to the first floor where you’ll find three comfortable bedrooms: the master Kingsize bedroom enjoys fine fell views and is blessed with an en-suite shower room with cubicle, basin and WC. A second Kingsize bedroom overlooks the garden and has a good range of built-in wardrobes whilst the third bedroom is a pretty twin, again with garden outlook. The large family bathroom has a shower over the bath, the perfect place for a leisurely soak, basin and WC

Great place for us,because son, wife and two children could come for the weekend. Like the off road parking and easy access to the property by the side door.Would definitely stay here again.

A good sized 3 bed house & all the facilities you would want . Great location with an easy walk into town & many walks from the front door reducing having to use our cars . A little tired in places - but for us , with a young child , it made it more homely

Copt How is a comfortable house, within walking distance of Ambleside. It met our needs for a weeks stay.

A very comfortable house in a great location. We could walk to the bus terminal and catch buses going to different places. We were also close to the local shops.Parking available at the property was useful. The house was roomy and comfortable and we especially liked the side entrance into the boot room when we returned from our walks.(Many from Ambleside) A really good rental!

This is an agency managed house so unlike other airbnb houses we have stayed in. Felt a bit sparse and functional but had a good location and worked fine for our family. Great boot room area for wet kit after days out and plenty of hot water and comfortable beds.

We were a party of 5 adults and one dog. We found Copt How to be spacious enough and adequately furnished. Check in was perfect as were the directions. The back garden was lovely and safe for our dog. The fact there is off road parking is a definite plus. We certainly couldn’t fault the location of the cottage, for the start of many beautiful walks, places to eat, drink and shop for supplies, all within easy walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay and would recommend Copt How.

Lovely cottage and right in the centre of ambleside. The house is just as described and room for 6 people with everything you need. A lovely spot for heading to the local villages too. Would love to stay again if we were in the area.

Such a lovely house. A perfect location, comfy and spacious house. Great views and just a few mins walk to town from this private road.

Lovely house, very close to the centre of Ambleside - cosy and warm if the weathers a bit wild. Very rapid response on a couple of minor maintenance issues. Would highly recommend.

Copt Howe is a great place to stay if you are visiting Ambleside. It is very homely & well equipped with lovely views of the fells & the church from the front windows. All the amenities of Ambleside are within easy walking distance & if you have a dog with you, there are numerous walks from the front door. Would highly recommend a stay at Copt Howe.

Fabulous house in an unbeatable location. A very easy stroll into the centre of Ambleside and the various walking trails. The house had everything we needed for our week long stay. We had a wonderful holiday and hope to be back again soon.

Great location. Five mins walk to Ambleside village centre.

We loved our stay in Ambleside. The place was perfect. It is an old house but very well heated and we had a fire going every night. The shower in the main bath room was great. Good water pressure and heat. The best about the house was its amazing location, right in the middle of Ambleside with lots of pubs and shops and good bus connection. We would definitely come back.

Perfect location in Ambleside and a big bonus to have the parking. The house is spacious, clean and tidy. Handy to have the garden to sit in after a day's walk exploring the area.
On Saturday, 02 Apr 2022
A perfect place to stay. The cottage has been thoughtfully equipped with everything you need. Great for easy access to all amenities yet very quiet.
On Tuesday, 04 Jan 2022
A spacious yet cosy house with open fires and everything that you need in a very convenient location. Offstreet parking, the check-in was extremely easy and the communication from the hosts was very good. Highly recommended.
