Had a great stay in Park Gate Lodge with our 2 children. The cottage was very well equipped, spacious and clean. It is in a great spot, and only a short walk into Ambleside (about 10 minutes and easily manageable with young children, 8 and 5), with other nice walks up to Rydal Hall straight from the doorstep. Would certainly recommend.
Park Gates is a very comfortable and well appointed lodge at the entrance to the Rydal Hall estate and a few minutes walk from the amenities of Ambleside. Both house and garden are attractive and maintained to a high standard. It makes an ideal base for walking in the central areas of Lakeland; the Fairfield Horseshoe commences from the front door; Rydal Water and Grasmere are a pleasant stroll away via the Rydal estate.
The lodge is close to the A591 but in contrast to the day, traffic at night is infrequent.
The rental is very reasonable for the location and season.
An experience that you will enjoy.
This cottage is decorated very tastefully and is furnished to the highest standard. It is more spacious than it looks in the pictures. The location is perfect and only 10 min walk into the centre of Ambleside. The hosts have equipped the cottage with board games, videos, DVD's,, books, walking magazines and have made every effort to make your stay enjoyable. There is a comfortable secluded patio where we ate breakfast each day. The tv reception is not good but we only watched the World Cup semi finals.
The sun was shining when we arrived at Park Gates Lodge which is a truly tranquil spot. The modern kitchen with two large windows is bright, light, airy, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. The lounge is very comfortable with an extensive supply of books, videos, childrens' games and DVDs. The newly fitted bathroom is excellent and the two bedrooms are extremely comfortable, although a little short in storage. The enclosed patio affords great privacy and the heavily stocked garden is beautiful.
Although wi-fi is advertised it has not as yet been connected.
Our stay here was all too short

We have just spent a lovely week in this cottage. It is a beautiful, clean house with lots of character. We couldn't believe how good the location was. The owners have done a fantastic job and the many personal touches makes it feel as though you are at a home away from home.
