The space
As a family we love spending time here. The central location means you don’t spend time in holiday seasons queuing to get through Ambleside but can be instantly out and about. We walk and climb all day with a picnic in a perfect spot, then come back to a swim and sauna and a bbq on the patios. Later into the evening we play games or watch a film. The nights are silent under star strewn skies. There are wonderful local eateries and pubs, The Eltermere Inn remains our favourite. There’s a brilliant indoor pool with a wave machine in Keswick and a fabulous market on a Thursday. The cinema in Ambleside is joined with a restaurant and offers excellent value deals on a film and a meal. When we’re here for a week family members have to pick their favourite activities and trips, walks, climbs as there is so much to do.
In summary you have a ground floor flat. 5 outdoor steps to climb on path from car park but otherwise level. Comfortable living space with books, maps and games, dvds provided. Travel cot for infants but bring your baby’s bedding. Large washing machine (3x £1 coins) large tumble dryer (£1 per 30 minutes) in the nearby laundry room if needed.
Please note, concerning pricing and good value.......
the nearest hotel has a 2 night minimum stay and ranges from £50 (most basic mid week) to £100 per night PER PERSON.
At Merlins there are no additional fees for each guest or for cleaning fees (as some other Airbnbs charge) You get a good deal

Guest access
Entire apartment and parking for two cars. Central pool house March to November 9:00 - 21:00. Sauna, table tennis and small heated pool. Outside space, two patios with outdoor table and four chairs.

Other things to note
The property is professionally cleaned to be Covid secure between guests. There are no early check ins as extra cleaning is required at this time.
No breakfast is provided so guests need to bring provisions with them. The Tesco supermarket in Ambleside is open till 11pm, or Chester’s by the River is a 5 minute walk away and serves a delicious breakfast from 9am.
Guests will be billed for using land line phone for anything other than UK land line numbers.

Car needed. 3 miles out of Ambleside but that’s why red squirrels play outside the patio door.

I spend most of my time working with families and children. After years teaching in schools I now work with young families in the community. I am married to Sherif and we have two daughters, two sons, and two sons-in-law, a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to cook, read, garden, travel, walk, be with company and family and friends. Sometimes Sherif helps to host our Airbnb guests if I’m out of the country or have no access to the internet. He’s the smiley chap next to me in the hobbit hole in the profile photo.
