Very friendly owners . Room3 overlooking the park was large and very comfortable. It was ideal for our several nights stay and large enough to allow our travelling companion to join us for late night scrabble! Breakfast was the best I have had for a long time,with masses of choice. All cooked to order with local fresh produce. I will... More

We stayed here whilst taking part in the Great North Swim, it was perfect. Very spacious and tastefully furnished master bedroom suite with views of the park. A warm welcome from the hosts and delicious breakfasts - one traditional & one veggie. Walking distance of Ambleside , would be happy to go back anytime.

Just returned from a three night stay at Brantfell House. What can I say that hasn't already been said. Breakfasts were fantastic with so much choice. Our room was very spacious, very clean with a large comfortable bed, great shower and the views from the room were brilliant. Jane was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble. Parking...

My boyfriend was away for Valentine's Day, and booked a weekend break as a surprise for me upon his return. Overall it was a lovely weekend. The owners couldn't do enough to help us, nothing was too much to ask and they even gave us a parking permit so we could park for free in all the car parks in... More

A very pleasant stay at a comfortable, convenient B&B; breakfast was a hearty feast, the perfect start to the day. The centre of Ambleside is a short walk, as is the lake itself. Parking is available nearby too, which is free for guests. Ideal for couples, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will return.

I stayed early May bank holiday weekend as part of a walking weekend with friends. The owner, Jane, gave me a warm welcome. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. We slept well and breakfast was delicious. What more could we want? (Except for it to not have been raining)

On a bike tour to scotland we stayed in Ambleside for 2 nights. Jane and Chris were fantastic from start to finish. The room was perfect for us and also the rest of the house was superb. Jane was so helpful and was happy to help us whenever called upon. Would highly recommend Jane and Chris to anyone. Matt and... More

Walking weekend in the Lakes, so chose Ambleside for variety of pubs an restaurants. Brantfell is well situated for access to Central Ambleside and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast and reasonable value for money. No on site parking but plentiful nearby. Comfortable clean and well decorated rooms but perhaps a little small.
