A great place for our family of 7. Cosy and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed our stay. The house felt safe and cosy, especially when storm ophelia brushed past during the night. David was really responsive and patient with all our queries. Instructions and check in procedures were provided early upon our queries. Thank you! Recommended place to stay.

Great house, really comfortable, tastefully decorated and plenty of space. Extremely accomodating for kids, not just by providing high chairs and cots, but also kids books, a snug room for kids to play in, and lots of child sized plates, bowls etc. David was extremely communicative throughout and really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay - even provided a detailed handbook of recommendations for walks, pubs etc. We would definitely recommend staying at David's place.

Five friends and I had a lovely long weekend stay in David's house. The photographs do not do the house justice; it was spacious, clean and very comfortable. My group throughly enjoyed their stay and found the information file with suggested walking routes and local amenities guide David provided very useful for our first walking trip in the Lake District.

A beautifully equipped house in a perfect location - great for walks, pubs, cafes, views, wild swimming (in Loughrigg Tarn - surprisingly warm!) and just pottering around in pretty nearby towns. We especially loved Chesters by the River for breakfast, although it does get very busy later on. There is a lovely view from the top of the garden, which we really enjoyed as the weather was unexpectedly good. One tip - make sure you write down the number of the keysafe box before you arrive, as there is no mobile signal... Thanks David for being a great host.

Many thanks for the kind words Gill. I'm glad you all enjoyed Tarn House... and got to swim in the Tarn! Nothing better than drifting around with the ducks on a sunny evening. :-)

Lovely big spacious house, with stunning gardens views (obviously weather dependent) and great location just outside of ambleside. It's about a 5 minute drive into Ambleside itself. We were a party of 6 adults and a baby and it was a perfect size with plenty of space. The kitchen had basics in the cupboard which as useful (such as salt/oil etc). Two lovely big baths and separate showers. There are a few lovely walks from the house itself and we found plenty within a short drive. The same with eating places and takeaways. All in all we had a lovely week :-)

This was our second stay at Tarn House. Again, we had a wonderful stay. The house is GREAT for large groups. Well equipped, very comfortable and in a great location (close to all the popular areas in the lake district). Easy access to several great walks and amenities. David the owner is great! He's made sure you will have every thing required for an enjoyable stay in the house. The house is very clean, beds are comfortable and all appliances are in working order!

I am fortunate to live in the Lake District, my favourite place in the world. When I am not on the fells I make music, take photos and publish books. Tarn House is my much-loved holiday cottage, my home from home nestled in the heart of the high places of Lakeland. My love for…
