Two Tweenways

Take in the breathtaking beauty of the Lake District with a stay at Two Tweenways, a traditional terraced cottage near Ambleside, Cumbria.

This romantic cottage is perfect for couples on holiday in North West England. The lovely open-plan living area includes a fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area with TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi.

A small patio area with garden furniture is the perfect place to dine alfresco while enjoying the crisp Lakeland air. Two Tweenways includes a washing machine, dryer, and secure bike storage.

The centre of the historic village of Ambleside is just a short walk away from this small cottage, as is magnificent Lake Windermere and the myriad watersports and boat cruises available to guests. Or, follow Stock Ghyll through the woodland to an enchanting waterfall.

Ambleside is famous for the diminutive 17th-century Bridge House, a National Trust Information Centre, and makes the perfect base for touring the central Lake District.

hoping improvements done with furnishings

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.


Nice cosy cottage

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


Nice homely cottage, shame about the bed.

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.


Home away from Home

This delightful cottage was most welcoming with well thought inclusions. It was very comfortably furnished and ideal for self catering. It was very well located just a few minutes walk from the centre of the charming village.

Two Tweenways was an ideal base for the two of us to explore the lakes. Exceptionally well stocked with all the home comforts, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

Excellant - well recommended

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.


perfect location, perfect accommodation

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
