Another excellent stay in Barnes Fell. Ethna made us feel extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. It was my husband's birthday and he wouldn't have wanted to spend it anywhere else. The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts are delicious and you can specify exactly what you want, Ethna is extremely knowledgable about the local area.... More

We had a great experience at Barnes Fell. Our room had superb views and was very clean and cosy.The bath robes were a nice touch. A lovely breakfast, close to the centre of town and very welcoming. We would recommend Barnes Fell.

Stayed for my birthday in the Loughrigg room. Room was beautiful with amazing views accross the fells. Ethna couldn't do enough for us & made us feel like we were very welcome in her home. Breakfast was delicious. This is my favourite B & B in the Lakes and we WILL be back. Thank you. X

We stayed last weekend and Ethna made us so welcome. Breakfasts by Nick were great too. Our room was comfortable and had everything we needed. It's just a short walk down the steps straight into the town, with some great views on the way. We ate at Atelier Restaurant (just at the bottom of the steps) where Ethna waited on... More

With hundreds of lodgings to choose from, my husband's persistence to find the best paid off. We were looking for something reasonable...but perfect. Who isn't? Search no further. You will be so happy at Barnes Fell. This charming spot is set just above Ambleside and a 3 minute walk from the center of town. The hosts are an incredible team... More
