Timeshare in Ambleside, the Lake District

After several enjoyable walks at Christmas Mary decided we should do more walking.

Back in 2009 we had an excellent weekend of walking with Bob and Lynn based out of Ambleside in the lake district.

Mary's uncle Ronald and wife Avril have owned a week in the Quaysiders timeshare apartment in Ambleside for many years. They grew to love the area so much they eventually moved down to Kendal.

So Mary got to hankering after one of those timeshare apartments.

At Mary's instigation Ronald sent us details of some weeks that were for sale and the prices were very reasonable. Less than our normal monthly credit card bill in fact!

To cut a long story short we went up to Kendal to spend the weekend with Ronald and Avril. The main purpose of the visit was to have a confirmatory inspection of the timeshare apartment before signing on dotted line.

We have purchased the Christmas week of unit 16. It cost a little more than some of the others but it is worth lots of points in the trading schemes that enable you to swap for other timeshares. So when we get bored of Christmas in the lakes or just want a change we can swap for a couple of weeks in the sun and still have points left over.

It doesn't really count as a major addition to our property portfolio as it is only 1/52nd of a property.
