There are three things that make this BnB spectacular: 1) Its location 2) Its hostess, Ethna 3) the quality of the rooms Although Ambleside is beautiful, I imagine that few places in the village could compete with the elevated perspective that this BnB provides. It seems to me that it being literally a 5 minute walk from the centre makes... More

Stayed for three nights on our first visit to the the Lakes. Couldn't have chosen a better B&B. Lovely and clean, nice bright room with fresh flowers and a great view overlooking Ambleside. Great host in Ethna, who couldn't do enough for us and gave us welcome advice on where to go and see. Lovely breakfast set us up for... More

Our recent 3 night stay at Barnes Fell was welcoming and comfortable. Ethna is the perfect host. Everywhere is clean and tidy and the breakfast is excellent. This was our first stay and we will be back. It is located within easy walking distance of the town centre.

Set just away from the hustle and bustle of the ever popular Ambleside centre this quiet retreat allows you to relax in a quaint and immaculate residence. Rooms are very comfy with excellent showers and the all important tea/coffee making facilities. The outstanding views across to the Lakeland fells that greet you in the breakfast room would bring a cheery... More

Just retuned from a lovely weekend in Ambleside, staying at Barnes Fell. Ethna was an attentive but discreet host. Nick's breakfast was lovely, very tasty and fresh. Stayed in the loughrigg room which was beautiful, spotlessly clean, bathrobes a lovely touch and amazing views. Only a two minute walk into centre of town. Perfect stay, would definitely recommend it.

Visited Barnes Fell again as we had such an enjoyable stay last time. It made a great Birthday even more perfect. The location is great for the centre of Ambleside with stunning views across the fells. Ethna is amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and she goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. The breakfast is the... More

The room was very tastefully decorated with extras that just finished it off, the bed was very very comfortable and the bathroom... More

Stayed at Barnes Fell for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rates were reasonable, the breakfasts were superb and the rooms were modern and clean. The location is good - being a short walk (albeit up hill) from the centre of Ambleside. Ethna, the owner was very friendly and chatty and helpful. I would be more than happy to... More
