I couldn't recommend it highly enough - its top end price wise for a B&B but you get what you pay for. Also a... More

We loved our visit and plan to come back again. The room was delightful, with a wonderful view. Breakfast was excellent too. But the best feature was the helpfulness of Sue and her colleague in the kitchen, in helping us plan our walk and our spare time in Ambleside. The home baking was greatly appreciated. We took advantage of the... More
