Perfect located B&B. Nice and clean rooms. Friendly and helpful host. Adorable Olivia entertained us at breakfast. Parking available and very easy and for free. We will love to come back and we really recommend the Kent House for accomodation in Ambleside.

We stayed at Kent House for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year. The family room we were allocated was very clean and contained everything we required as a family. As the weather was cold the room was also warm and cosy. Kent House is very family friendly with a lovely relaxed feeling about the place. Breakfast was very tasty,... More

Great place. Simon cannot do enough for you. We (my girlfriend and I) had our rather demanding Doberman with us who would just create if we left her in our room during breaky so we planned to have breaky separately.

We only stayed one night on our way through the Lake District. We were a little flustered at first trying to figure out where the parking was at first but once we managed to reverse up the steep grade and park and then get into our room we were much more relaxed. The rooms were very comfortable, pleasant and clean.... More

Simon and Sandra provided a fabulous base for us to explore the lake district. Our room was a twin and well kept. Simon was very helpful recommending venues and areas and did not hesitate to share his knowledge. The breakfast was wonderful and set us up for the day. Please do not be put off about a previous comment regarding... More

A very nice place to stay. The location was right on the center of the village with shops and restaurants all around it We had a family room that was beautifully decorated. The breakfast was also good.

Really great B&B and in a superb location, right on the high street in the centre of the village. Breakfast was excellent, the owners really helpful and welcoming. Only thing that could improve it would be to have WiFi available throughout.
