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

Ethna and her husband are the best B & B hosts you could ever wish to meet. The rooms are fantastic, the location is ideal with great views of the hills, the breakfast was great. The bed is comfortable, the shower is a proper shower. If we were to return to Ambleside then this would be the only place we... More

The welcome could not have been friendlier. The rooms and facilities were excellent for the price and the breakfast every bit as outstanding as promised. The free WiFi was a boon. Real quality and value.

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.
