Breakfast the following day was delicious and the owners were very keen to... More

We stayed here with our son the night before his wedding at Troutbeck. Simon and his wife are a most delightful couple. and in Ambleside, there are numerous places to have wonderful meals. We felt very much at home, and, rest assured, the condemned man ate a very hearty and delicious breakfast!

We spent time chating to him about all sorts so felt very comfortable. The guest house itself is superly located right in the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Kent House for a weekend away in the Lake District. As mentioned in other reviews, the ramp and car park appeared to be difficult, however, the owner had reserved a space for us right outside on our request. The owner was very friendly and helpful, giving us lots or restaurants and places to visit.... More

The only negative we could find was the exact location of the place with regards to parking. Its on a hill with a steep drive. I couldn't get the car reversed up the drive due to the... More

Kent house is a great bed and breakfast in Ambleside that offers a friendly homely service. Simon and Sandra work hard to ensure your stay is comfortable and will offer help and advice on walks, places to eat and drink, We have stayed here 3 times and will definately return.
