Lovely house, well situated within easy walking distance of restaurants and buses. George and Val were great hosts and good company. Gold bedroom was sumptuous, extremely comfortable and perfect for a good night's sleep. Delicious breakfasts with good choice. Would happily return.

Second visit to this lovely guest house and it was every bit as good as the first. Beautiful well-appointed room with very comfortable bed. George and Val are lovely hosts - and very knowledgeable about the local area. Breakfast was cooked to order and everything was delicious. Decanter of sherry for guests is such a nice touch and the little... More

We stayed 5 days in this excellent B&B. Personal attention, spotless and wonderful choice of breakfasts. Could have remained longer. Off road parking was a real bonus. We experienced the Lake District at it's best, blue skies almost every day. George & Elizabeth, Co. Down, N. Ireland

A 4th trip to this excellent B&B did not disappoint, We had a 3 night stay in March 2015. Standards are high in all respects, room, bed comfort, linen, decor, carpets. There is a small lounge area for guests. A sherry table on the landing is a nice touch. Our room overlooked the lovely garden as does the smart breakfast... More

A repeat experience at Red Bank was excellent as before. George was a great host and ensured we had a very comfortable stay. Clean , good food, comfortable bed all ensured we had an enjoyable stay. Situation is extremely convenient both for walking in the fells or a stroll in to Ambleside. We will will certainly be returning.

Very enjoyable stay. Two day break for my birthday. Room was lovely and overlooked the garden and breakfast was great. Again the breakfast room overlooked the garden and was quiet. George was on his own and was a splendid host. Have only one comment to make and that was that there is only one easy chair in the bedroom although... More

I stayed at the Red Back on a walking trip. It was good a B & B as I have stayed in. George was a fantastic host and nothing was any trouble. The rooms are first class and a lot of time has been spent on, attention to detail. Keep up the great work.

Red bank is a brilliant b&b, in fact it's just like being at home and/or with family. George and Val run the guest house in a really friendly manner. The rooms are always immaculately clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts are the best in the lakes! If you've never stayed please give it a go, you will not be disappointed.... More

My wife and I stayed with brother/sister-in law and what a lovely peaceful place, we all stayed Fri and Sat at the end of March and the weather was a bit wet, but we all totally enjoyed our stay. George and Val are fantastic hosts, the complimentary sherry in the decanter on the landing is a really nice touch. The... More
