We had an absolutely fabulous time here at Mill Top and would definitely come back. Clean, cosy, comfy, brilliant location being a few minutes walk from the centre of town or up into the hills. Just ticked all of the boxes!

This place is really fantastic! Very clean, very light and very new. The pictures cannot express enough. Trust me, this house is really modern. This house have all the modern equipment you could want, even and three parking spaces. The location is great, next to the waterfall. And being in the middle of the lake district, it's very close to all the towns. The furthest is keswick which is only 30 minutes away. What made me feel happiest was that I forgot to bring my brp, but on the first day I really wanted to have a little drink before bed. Then I realised Michelle had sent us a bottle of bubbly. Really thank you micelle very much. I feel so warm.

Stayed with friends and all of us thought Mill Top was a great place to stay. Rooms and facilities all good. Only a short walk into Ambleside and close to the Golden Rule & The Unicorn. (Little warning is that one of the parking spaces is quite tight.)

Very nice large apartment. The communal kitchen/living space was great for our two families with toddler. The four Bedrooms were really nice too. All perfectly clean and tidy. Communication was excellent throughout. Lovely views of the woods and stream - very relaxing space to be. . Our only tiny query is on the shared balcony in the description. Perhaps we didn't find it, or maybe it is the small space by the front door. We didnt find/use it, but it wasn't a big issue. Would definitely stay again. Thanks

The property was beautifully located, clean and spacious and we were delighted when we arrived. Room for all the family (6 of us) to feel at home both communally and independently which suited us perfectly. Michelle and her team were super quick and responsive with any queries we had but everything was so well laid out and presented that we had little need for any support during our stay. Highly recommended and we’ll be back (if welcomed) :)

Wow! Absolutely perfect home from home! Brilliant space - perfect for family groups, with very comfy beds and useful amenities. Great for exploring Ambleside on foot and the wider area by car. Beautiful location by the river too. We would love to come back!
