Great B&B, especially for the price. Location wise you will struggle to find anything better located with parking. Good sized room which was clean and tidy. Plenty to set you up for the day at breakfast time and Darren can't do enough for you without being one of those overly tentative people that end up becoming annoying. Already talking about... More

Great on many levels:- location, spotlessly clean, breakfast quality & choice, comfort and value for money. Hosts were really friendly and helpful too. Within walking distance of all Ambleside's bars, restaurants and shops. Will definitely be back.

Stayed for two nights with mum for a treat. Great location and parking a priceless facility in this area. Room was immaculate along with bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities good too. Breakfast was great with a bit of everything and lots of choices from kippers and full English to pancakes and syrup. Will definitely come back. Thank you, my mum... More

There were not many 'bad' things about this B&B. The only things to be aware of are as follows: - The rooms are downstairs, while the upstairs floor squeaks when people walk around. I found that people normally only started moving about upstairs above our room at around 7:30 when I was already awake - or, if they were moving... More

All you will need for a stay in the lakes. Private car park on site, a bonus in Ambleside. Rooms are not big but everything spotless and practical. Enough room for double bed, wardrobe, 3 sets of draws, en suite with shower. Towels changed daily if you need them. Complimentary drinks and biscuits replaced daily. Breakfast is delicious.

We stayed a couple of years ago and so chose to return on our recent visit to Ambleside. Darren and Debbie were friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable and the cooked breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of options.
