Homely B&B in a good location. The breakfasts were great. Dave has an impressive knowledge of all the local walks and an array of stories to tell. It was a pleasure to be flooded in and to have to stay an extra night! We hope to visit again but perhaps with less rain.

This B&B is so central to all the shops,bars & restaurants, we never needed a taxi.There's even a cinema plus plenty... More

We have now been here over ten times and still its 100% in all areas- hospitality, rooms, food, local knowledge and Dave and Angie are perfect all round fun hosts. It's so good I actually stay there for one night if I have any business within 50 miles.

Just returned from 2 nights here. David and Angela are the perfect hosts, with a great warm welcome and genuine hospitality. They recommended a great bar called Lily's just up the road on our 1st night. Fab local real ale !! The B&B is perfectly located in the centre of the village. Bedrooms are spacious and beds really comfortable. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights and we will be returning! Dave and Angela were the perfect hosts. Dave told us about local walks and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. The room was spacious and very clean. Special mention for the beautifully cooked breakfast which was amazing and set us up for the day. We parked in the school grounds at... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the midterm break. Lovely B+B, just what we were looking for- very clean, great breakfast and the couple who owned the B+B were extremely friendly and happy to help. Great location right in the centre of Ambleside, would definitely recommend to a friend.

Booked on the basis of reviews here, and wasn't disappointed. Room was very clean, and hosts very friendly - breakfast was great and accommodated our slightly quirky requests. Great location in the centre of Ambleside. We will return.

Started our Lakeland round here. Great beginning with a great British breakfast to get us going! The room was nice and cozy, overlooking the mountains surrounding the town. Wifi reception was very good.

We booked Claremont House after being advised to stay in or around Ambleside to be close to our family who were staying in surrounding areas for a walking weekend. Safe to say we found a gem and one that we will be returning to time and time again. Our hosts David and Angie were lovely. They fully accommodated our late... More

Claremont is located right in the centre of Ambelside. David the owner knows the best pubs and restaurants AND paths to anywhere in Lake District you'd want to hike to. He helped me carry my backpack and helped me plan my route. The room was cosy, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was massive.
