I felt at home the moment I stepped in. Guess the number of little cat figures and pictures I discovered in the common area, had a bit of influence on that :) The service was very warm and welcoming and room was just lovely. The bathrooms were equipped with interesting locally produced natural shower products (which were also available for... More

Stayed four nights while walking in the surrounding hills. The hosts were welcoming without being intrusive. The breakfasts were scrumptious and the packed lunches perfect forca days walk. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed here a few times as a stop off going to Scotland and back it makes the trip. Nice lounge to relax in and easy to stroll into town not to mention the breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

situated on main road, lots of traffic noise in room, especially first thing in morning, eg, binmen, garage directly over road, needs good double glazing, room ok, bed comfy, plenty of wardrobe space, but staircase and hallway carpet was in need of a good clean, as was sticky handrail. Didn't bother with bar as it was honesty box and VERY... More

Well located within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. Friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. Excellent shower and room facilities. Great breakfast. More than we expected for a B&B.

Great location. Facilities were very good. Paul's breakfast was of a very high standard (he trained as a chef) as was Vicky's service. They were both very accommodating. There is a bar in the basement that Paul is happy to open uopn request.

We stayed for two nights (Sunday & Monday) after spending the weekend at a friend's wedding nearby. SETTING Perfectly situated off the main road in central Ambleside. Parking available (I think there were six spaces). Walkable distance to the town and many walks with recommendations in the folder in the room or directions available in the bar/lounge. ROOMS Simple but... More

My new husband and I stayed at Stones Throw for a week in April and had the perfect stay. Our hosts were extremely accommodating, understanding that we would be arriving on Sunday evening, rather than Saturday, after our wedding and were able to meet us at whatever time we arrived off our train. They also went to great efforts before... More

Just returned from a 4 day break in the self catering retreat Stones Throw owned by Elder Grove. Only a couple of minutes walk into Ambleside, it was the perfect place for a relaxing break away before the madness of Christmas. The little extra touches made it all the more special-from the loaf of homemade bread and jar of marmalade... More

Stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Grasmere. We arrived late at the landlord was extremely helpful in telling us where to go for some food and what to do the next day if we were to go for a walk. The rooms were beautiful, the overall décor of the B&B was perhaps a bit too much, but still very... More
