Recently stayed here for two nights. Nice clean and tidy room and an excellent breakfast. Owners were very helpful and I would definitely stay again. Only bad point is parking is difficult and in an awkward position.

Wonderful find:-) We were going to Zeffirellis cinema nearby, so stayed overnight here, leaving the car, and walking through to watch a film and have a meal-then back for a great nights sleep and fantastic breakfast. A perfect mini-break:-) Only slight challenge is the parking...maybe practise your reversing first! Well worth it though:-)

A really wonderful guest house with a fantastic room, great day starting breakfast and very accommodating hosts has just got to be a winner. This place is a gem and we were very happy with our three night stay and would recommend it for those staying in Ambleside and wanting to be very central.

Definitely worth the price. Stayed in a beautifully styled room with the most comfortable bed, it was spotless and had a great view. Plenty of tea for us both! Lovely breakfast. Owners were friendly and humourous. It also wasn't far from the waterfalls and near some of the best traditional pubs. Would stay again.

Lovely B&B - great room, family orientated, fabulous breakfast and really well located in the heart of Ambleside. There was slight confusion as we have 3 kids not two, and the booking.com notification hadn't been clear but it was rapidly sorted with no problems. Has parking - be prepared to master your reversing! Simon is a great host.

Not really a 4 star establisment! Rooms clean and comfortable and breakfasts excellent. Left the empty shampoo and gell on the basin and still there when we returned to the room in the evening, we only got 1 small shampoo and 1 shower gel for a 3 night stay! Empty tissue box left on bed, not replaced and empty tissue... More
