We stayed at Barnes Fell for two nights for our first anniversary and couldn't have had a better experience. Ethna was waiting to greet us and was warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived and throughout. The room was clean and spacious with a wonderful en suite bathroom attached and great little personal touches like bathrobes. The breakfasts were... More

If your looking for a warm welcome with a friendly approach, great view, lovely clean room, fantastic breakfast and easy parking then look no further. Honestly can not fault our stay, my initial comments as above highlight admirably all that is good ... We hope to return to the area sometime soon and when we do we will not hesitate... More

Stayed for Fred Whitton weekend with a friend. Nothing was too much trouble for our incredibly welcoming host Ethna. Clean comfortable rooms, wonderful breakfasts, safe place for the bikes, and a great location in a quiet street that's just a short walk to the town centre. There can't be a better place to stay when exploring the area.

We stayed at Barnes Fell in Ambleside for the May bank holiday Weekend. We stayed in the Loughrigg room . It was decorated beautifully and the views from the bay window were amazing . The attention to detail in the room and in fact the whole B &B are second to none . From the luxurious bath robes hanging on... More

This was a fantastic place to stay. Booking was easy, friendly and informal, an approach that I like very much. The room was beautiful and had been recently decorated, with a view of the very pretty garden and the fells beyond. We were moved to an even better room at no extra cost because some regulars had cancelled, which we... More

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

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.
