Our family of 4 stayed in the family room at Claremont House for 3 nights. We could not fault both Angie and David for their hospitality throughout our stay. The room was spotlessly clean upon arrival and after a long day walking it was lovely to come back to our room having been cleaned along with fresh towels and a... More

From the moment we booked the hotel, right through to check-out, the owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is very child-friendly (other guests with children have been visiting the Claremont for a number of years) and David and Angie were very accommodating to us and our one year old son. David has an interesting background and gave... More

Just returned after staying for 2 nights at Claremont House. We travelled as a family-our children are 7 and 8. We received a very warm welcome and were shown to our room, which was modern and spotlessly clean. The proprietors Dave and Angie are very knowledgable about the Lakes and provided us with lots of tips and advice on things... More

Stayed here twice now, and perfect every time. Friendly owners and always full of hints, tips and stories of the area. Conversation about a walk in the snow around little langdale has made us want to come back in the winter one year. Crockery and cutlery looks brand new each visit, it is kept spotless. Rooms are size you'd expect... More

After staying here in 2013 we had no hesitation in booking it again for our little trip to the Lakes, and it didn't disappoint! It is perfectly situated and the family room we stayed in was really comfy and spacious. We made use of the hosts' local knowledge and it was lovely chatting to them at breakfast and finding out...

The owners of this B&B have obviously worked hard to build a strong reputation and it's easy to see why. In addition to a great location right next to Ambleside's bars, shops and restaurants, my wife and I were very impressed with the clean and well-equipped rooms, a tasty breakfast and most of all with the hosts themselves. We received... More

Cannot compliment the guest house and Dave and Angie enough! Lovely, comfortable rooms, perfect location, very reasonably priced and wonderful hosts. Back again next year for the Great North Swim. Thank you for a lovely anniversary break!

We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Ambleside and our first visit to Claremont House. We arrived earlier than expected but this was not a problem, we were able to park outside, take our things to our rooms and settle in. Parking was not a problem as we were given a permit and easily found a space a... More

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
