Claremont House drew us back to the beautiful town of Ambleside - August Bank holiday weekend being our third visit, three night stay. Took our girls with us this time and stayed in the family room at the top of the house. Enough room and comfort for a couple with children aged 13 and 7. The girls were very impressed... More

We have just spent one week at Claremont House. Dave and Angie are excellent hosts and with Dave's background in mountain rescue he has a wealth of knowledge of walks in the area. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Rooms have tea making facilities and hair dryers. Breakfast was plentiful, from cereals and fresh fruit to full English!

Dave and Angie were very hospitable, Dave's help in offering a route to seeing the sights on offer were invaluable. The Little B&B is located in central Ambleside close to all the amenities you would wish for. Our room was very small and very hot due to the unusual conditions regarding temperatures for this time of the year. We were... More

Everything was superb except the watresses in the morning (lack of politness, couldn't pay much attention while taking order even though we were the only table!) Also no shampoo in the bathroom so you need to bring yours!

I had a three night stay at Claremont House. My room was comfortable and clean, a pleasure to return to each night. The owners were away during my stay but I was well looked after. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and plentiful, with vegetarian options - a real bonus for me! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this pleasant and welcoming guest... More

Dave and Angie made us feel welcome and relaxed as soon as we walked through the door. We had a top room floor which was lovely.....spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent and even though all the guests arrived for breakfast all at once the service was fantastic. You are not made to feel rushed or left waiting for ages. I... More
