We had a lovely long weekend in the greatest spot in the Lake District. It was enhanced by staying at Dave and Angela's warm, welcoming, comfortable and value for money Guest House. Despite the continual rain ( two hours of respite on the Sunday evening-but who cares?) we had a fabulous time. We ate at a fabulous restaurant ( Old... More

We had a lovely weekend in this friendly guest house, despite the traditional Lakes weather! Our family room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts were excellent. Dave and Angela give a warm welcome and are very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommended!

We stayed here during a long weekend in March, for some walking around Ambleside. It, as the title suggests, is perfect for this. The breakfasts are tasty and filling as a great set up to the day. Excellent, comfy rooms with deceptively spacious en-suites and the possibility of a drying area make a lovely place to return to after a... More

We stayed at Claremont House for 2 nights, for a couple of days walking in the hills. It had been recommended to us by friends. We found it to have: modern bathrooms, lovely bright rooms and to be spotlessly clean throughout, It was also quiet and central to town. The owners (Dave and Angela) were really friendly, helpful and shared... More

We stayed two nights at Claremont House Guest House after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The house is well positioned in Ambleside, close to a multitude of shops and restaurants as well as some lovely pubs. Parking outside wasn't a problem for us and, although we couldn't get right outside on our second night, we were only a short walk... More
