I had lovely conversations with Norman, one of the proprietors, who did his utmost to ensure that our stay was a happy one. Loved the breakfasts, and the fact that you could "design your own" in advance, ticking off what you wanted from a list and giving it in the night before. I obviously must get out more, because the... More

We booked the Highfield through the tourist information centre. Outstanding b&b the best we have ever stayed in. The rooms are immaculately clean as is the whole house. The beds are super comfy and the breakfast was 5* the owners certainly know how to run a friendly establishment. Plenty of hot water and good shower. Ample parking in the large... More

An ideal place to stay that we were lucky to find. The owners were so welcoming and anxious to ensure we had all we needed. Breakfast was fresh and delicious, room very clean and comfortable and the location ideal for walking into town. We hope to return one day.

Very well situated in Ambleside with lots of pubs and restaurants nearby this is a very cosy and friendly B and B. OK ....so my double room was on the small side but it's immaculately clean and with a nice view of Ambleside church. You pick what you fancied for breakfast the night before - and it was made to...

Highfield-Ambleside, Owner at Highfield Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

It was the Great North Swim weekend with 10,000 visitors to the area so we did not want to let one of our three double guest rooms for single occupancy. The Tourist Information Centre said the person making the booking was happy to pay the double occupancy rate and had been informed it was a small room. We did try... More

Great location, easy access for sight seeing. The B&B was exceptionally clean and the breakfast was presented with care and of good quality. The bacon was the best I have ever tasted. Our hosts Carole and Norman were very welcoming and helpful with local information. We would definately stay there again if we were to visit the Lakes in the... More

Stayed at The Highfield B&B for two nights in May. Great location for walking into town or a stroll to lake Windermere. Free parking at the rear is a definite plus in Ambleside . The accomodation was excellent . We had a bedroom at the front of the property which was spacious and nicely decorated. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly... More

What a fantastic B& B , perfect location 200yards from town center, off road parking , filling breakfast that hits the spot along with all its trimmings, spotlessly clean and Carole and Norman made us feel very welcome and were excellent hosts. I,ll definitely be booking with them in the future. Carole also offers special rates and deals throughout the... More

I have stayed at Highfield with my boyf several times now and would highly recommend. It's a traditional b&b a minute's walk away from the chocolate-box town centre. A big plus with this b&b is the off-road parking. Another - very important - plus is the quality of the breakfasts. Lots of choice, from fresh fruit and yoghurts to poached... More
