We stayed at Barnes Fell for a weekend and had a wonderful stay. The rooms were lovely, comfortable beds, good shower, a few little extras in the room too which made it really nice. Ethna was so lovely, she gave us some good advice of places to go walking and places to go within Ambleside and made us feel so... More

This is a fab B and B. The owner is really lovely and you definitely feel at home. Bed is very comfortable and shower (in wansfell) is excellent. Breakfast, of course, is yummy!! Plenty of choice and consistent high standard every day. Room is really well looked after and the dressing gowns were a surprise!

This is a lovely, welcoming B&B which has everything you need. From the moment I arrived I felt at home and totally relaxed. The location is ideal as it is close to the centre of Ambleside but the elevated position makes you feel away from the hustle and bustle. Ethna and Nick are the perfect hosts who show genuine interest... More

My wife and I stayed at Barnes Fell 15-17 July and it was a lovely experience. It is up the hill a bit from the very center of town so one gets a peaceful location that is still close to everything. Our room was larger than most B&B´s that we have stayed in, had a comfortable bed, a range of... More

My wife and I stayed at this lovely B&B while taking a break in Ambleside as guests for a friend's wedding. The location is very central – only a minute's walk from the main street. It is definitely worth paying the extra to stay in the Loughrigg room at the front. From its elevated position the views are just breathtaking... More

She was very helpful with regards to all the amenities in town and she went out of her way to get us a close parking spot... More
