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.

Stayed for valentines weekend with our puppy. Room was small but lovely with very nice decor and modern ensuite shower room. Hosts made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was the best we've ever had with a great choice. Right in the centre of Ambleside. Can't wait to return 😃

We had an excellent stay at Brantfell House. We stayed over the weekend of 16/01/15. Chris & Jayne are excellent hosts and welcomed us and our two chihuahua's with open arms. Brantfell is a B&B decorated to very high standard and exceptionally clean. We booked on line with book.com and consequently our room was a little smaller than we would... More

A lovely bed and breakfast on the edge of the heart of the village of Ambleside. Spacious rooms which are well decorated with big comfortable beds; complimented by fantastic en suite facilities. Jane and Chris are great hosts, and go the extra mile to ensure your needs are met. The breakfast is also a highlight, where you can pretty much... More

What a wonderful place to stay! We were made to feel like we were family right from the word go, nothing was to much trouble. Breakfast was delicious and the room was bright and clean. 100% we would visit again, parking permits were a fantastic touch and everything was just perfect. :)

We stayed at Brantfell in late August 2014. The location of the B&B is excellent and parking facilities are provided - we were also allowed to use the parking permit when we went out on day trips which was a nice little touch. The room was spotless and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. My partner was very ill throughout... More

Chris and jane make you feel like family from arrival to departure. One of the very best B&B's we've stayed in, the breakfast was superb you could have anything cooked anyway and the buffet was fab. We had a large double and it was lovely with a beautiful view. Can't thank them enough for their hospitality A+++
