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

We chose Claremont House as we had liked it when we stayed for a couple of nights in December 2012. We were glad we did. David could not be more helpful. He recommended a great walk we could do before we had our evening meal. When we stayed previously he even lent us maps. Our bed was very comfortable and... More

We spent two nights at this comfortable guest house and had the family room at the top of the house facing the busy main road. Would probably choose to stay in one of the rear rooms next time as the traffic was very noisy. The bedroom and ensuite bathroom room was spotless The breakfast choice was excellent as was the...

We had travelled to Scotland with relatives who were visiting from Australia and stopped off in the Lake District for an overnight stop on our way home. I looked at the guest houses with the highest ratings on TripAdvisor and chose Claremont House based on the ratings and comments. We received a very warm welcome from David upon arrival and... More

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

What a find! From the minute the front door was opened to the minute it was closed behind us, we had a perfect stay. The room was spotless, cosy, warm and stylish as was the en-suite. Breakfast was tremendous with plenty of choice. Bur one of the main things which sets this apart from previous b&b's I have used,is the... More
