Two Tweenways description

Holiday home
This traditional Lakeland terraced cottage offers excellent accommodation within easy reach of all local amenities within the popular town of Ambleside. This lovely property provides visitors with first class, well equipped, accommodation including an open-plan living space, fully fitted kitchen, comfortable double bedroom and a small patio area. The warm and welcoming feel of the cottage makes it an excellent place to visit in winter too. The centre of Ambleside itself is just a short walk away, as is the magnificent Lake Windermere, making this a well placed home-from-home.

Situated at the northern tip of Lake Windermere - England's largest lake – the town of Ambleside offers a superb base for touring the central Lake District. The surrounding area offers plenty to do such as cruises, boat trips and water sports on Lake Windermere itself as well as numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in situated in Ableside. The lakeside at Waterhead provides access to a short stretch of beach, whilst a brief walk in the opposite direction - following Stock Ghyll through woodland - will lead to the enchanting waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. In addition to the Lake and the great walking and cycling on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th Century ‘Bridge House' - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

A charming cottage, well situated with easy access to a fantastic range of restaurants and bars. The most appealing feature was the ability to leave the car and be still be able to enjoy hill walking, mountain climbing, water falls and boat trips - so relaxing.

We loved the town, the countryside and the general atmosphere. Most importantly Tweenways 2 felt like a real home and not just a place to stay. A lot of thought has been put into providing small pleasures and the local guide provided by the owner was a great help in choosing where to go and where to eat. Full marks!

The location of the cottage to the town of Ambleside. The walks from the cottage were superb, we didn't use our car for three days, which was nice. The homely feel of the cottage - as soon as we walked in we knew it was going to be a great holiday. The decor and furnishing of the cottage were great. The porch area was great for keeping coats, boots, etc. The shower was great too. The stair lights are a fantastic touch.

We stayed in 'One Tweenways' last year and had a wonderful week so we thought we'd return this year and move up one door. Once again, we enjoyed a very relaxing week - it was absolute bliss. So, we're hoping to return next year for a week in 'Number 3'.

Mr Dosdale
August 2005
We had a very nice and relaxing holiday and the accommodation made it even more enjoyable. It was excellent. Information left by owners regarding walks etc very helpful as to the details etc for eating out.
April 2014
We found the cottage to be a comfortable size, warm, clean and nicely decorated with a nice 'feel' about the place. Very useful off street parking space, plenty of storage space and bathroom is a good size. Downside is first no towels supplied which we couldn't understand, seems like a strange austerity move by the owner. Second, you have to get used to the traffic noise right outside the bedroom window. Third, we found the bed to be hard, with noisy springs on one side and overall past it's best. Really hope the owner takes a look at this and invests in a new, more comfortable model.
January 2013
We booked the cottage for Xmas week, having been before we knew the lay out inside and where it was regards shops, pubs, restaurants. It is a comfy cosy warm place and we spent a nice week there, we were inside more than planned due to wet weather and able to enjoy the TV and the radio and warmth. The bathroom has a lovely big shower and a deep bath. One minus side was the traffic noise as on main road but one does get use to it. Ambleside is a good base for walks, busses, car trips with a good variety of pubs, restaurants, shops, Picture houses etcs
Mrs Sloss
February 2016
Great location near to the centre of Ambleside, which was great for going out into town or for dinner at night. Loved the huge bath and rain shower, they were one of the reasons we picked the cottage.
July 2012
Above was given a 4 1/2 star hence our booking. The parking and proximity to the town etc are wonderful ,the decor is fine but the furnishings were not up to the standard of the 14 other selfcatering we have used but the bones are there for improvement greatly.In todays modern society with phones,readers and netbooks,ipads etc found this was only place we stayed at didnt have wifi on tap but top marks to the owner she did let us into her site. Also no towels???How many people carry towels on holiday.Never came across no towels before but top marks to the owner-she did lend us a couple.A bit reluctant to recommend till we know furnishings have been upgraded and more comfortable and cleaner.
January 2012
This is a perfect cottage for two. It is surprisingly spacious, with a very well appointed kitchen, comfortable seating, exceptionally large bathroom with plenty of hot water. It is spotlessly clean. The added bonus is the parking space and proximity to ambleside. Wifi would have been the icing on the cake but there were plenty of wifi cafes and pubs in ambleside. The booking procedure and key arrangements were straight forward. We loved it and will be going back later this year
June 2011
We stayed at Two Tweenways in June 2011. This is a very nice, we equipped little cottage that makes and ideal base to explore Ambleside and Lake Windemere. There is nothing this cottage lacks, it has a huge bathroom with a separate bath and power shower (ideal after a long walk). The Kitchen is very well equiped and even had brandy glasses (you cant even get them in some Pubs!). If there is one downside, it is situated on a busy road (like most hotels/cottages in the lakes) but after a while you get used to the noise of the traffice.
December 2009
This property is very comfortable and is in a great location local to Ambleside with it's many shops and restaurants. The decor is very good with all necessary requirements. I would certainly visit this property again in the future.
