We stayed for one night - to Holme Lea's credit they were the only B&B who would let us stay for just one night over Valentine's weekend. The place is spotlessly clean, the rooms are warm and comfy. Breakfast is a bit basic but nice. Value for money.

We stayed for 2 nights over bank holiday, we found it to be great value. Location is right in the centre of Ambleside, with Lucy's on a plate a few metres away and the royal oak at the top of the street. Parking wasn't a problem with the suggestions from Pam. I would stay here again, the only reason for... More

We stayed in Room 5, a large family room with a partition that gives an element of privacy for when the little ones go to sleep and the adults don't want to. The shower room was very small but the power of the shower was brilliant. It is quite amazing how much they have put into such a small shower... More

We had a very lovely stay on Saturday 14th June for the Great North Swim. Pam was very helpful and her suggestions about parking were fantastic, the room (I think Number 5) was perfect and the shower was AMAZING! Breakfast was scrummy and we liked it so much we've already booked for next year! Thanks Pam :-)

Spent an evening at this excellent B&B on the weekend of Great North Swim Pam was very welcoming even with our very late arrival. Also we had an early start and Pam was up cooking breakfast for us. Spotlessly clean and very spacious room (#5) We would love to stay again next time we're in the Lakes. Ambleside is a... More

From the moment Pam greeted us at the door this was a wonderful break and thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. The guest house is spotless. The beds are comfortable with nice linen and lovely thick fluffy towels for use in the ensuite facilities, which are very good quality. The room was spacious and Pam and Billy have thought of...

I stayed for 2 nights in a very comfortable room. Pam was there to greet me, and was very helpful and friendly. The smell of cooked breakfast was wafting up the staircase, and couldn't wait to tuck in to it! Ample of cereals to choose from, with fruit juice and yoghurts. Plenty of coffee and toast, and the most amazing... More

I really enjoyed this for a quick stay, and loved the breakfast particularly. Nothing greasy and every element of it was quality - particularly the bacon. Everything was fresh - hash brown as well as fresh tomato and mushrooms. Choice of cereals or grapefruit and lots of it, also yogurts and juices to choose from. If I was fussy I... More

Three of us spent 2 nights in the family room on the second floor. The room was spotless and a new en-suite provided good showering/toilet facilities. The beds were clean and comfortable. TV was small with dodgy sound but that isn't important in the Lakes. Full English breakfast was very good. Vegetarian alternative was also very nice. Parking in Ambleside... More
