My husband and myself stayed at Red Bank for a long weekend. We have been to the Ambleside many times but this was our first stay at Red Bank, and we were certainly not disappointed. The house was immaculate, with great attention to detail. The rooms were excellent with extremely comfortable beds and a beautiful ensuite. The breakfast was first... More

My husband and I and two Australian friends stayed for two nights at Red Bank in early June. Our intention was to show our friends a snapshot of the beauty of the Lake District, and Red Bank did not disappoint in adding to the enjoyment of the trip. Our rooms were well equipped and very comfortable, with several personal touches... More

We arrived in May for two days and stayed for four days it was so delightful. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the room was magnificent. Plenty of space to sort our luggage and a comfortable, private bathroom which isn't always the case in B&Bs. It is now a month since we left Ambleside and we are still talking about... More

Warm welcome by the owners and always a help during the stay, excellent breakfast and cosy and very clean rooms. Quiet, but only a few minutes from the center of Ambleside. All rooms are well decorated, there is a non-smokimg policy and you can park your car on the premise, what else do you need? We definitely will com back!

Our trip to Ambleside coincided with a deep fall of snow at the end of March, but this only added to the magical experience of this most wonderful place. George and Val made us very welcome, and our room was perfect for us. Complimentary glass of sherry in the evening before the short walk into the village with its choice... More

Thank you for your kind comments. The snow adds to the experience as you walk in the fells and when you can leave your car at Red Bank the road conditions do not spoil your enjoyment. The log burner in the lounge is probably the best improvement we made at Red Bank to the extent that on the wet days... More

Thanks for your comments and Val and I are always pleased to hear new guests comments. The log burning stove is always a central attraction in the winter and many of our guests spend some relaxing time in front of the stove after their long walks. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. More

We had left it quite late in the day before we decided to stay in Ambleside and how relieved we were when we saw vacancies at Red Bank. We were given a very warm welcome by George and had a laugh because my partners name is also George. We were shown into a lovely clean, spacious en-suite bedroom with a... More

Thanks for your kind remarks. Although we are marked as being on the fringes of Ambleside we are, as you state, only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of village. Additionally, you have no need to uses your car, leave it in our off road parking area, because you are close to numerous easy or more challenging walks... More
