Having just returned (22-24.06.14) from a wonderful stay at Brantfell House I cannot reccommend this B&B highly enough. Jane & Chris were absolutely wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble & very informative. Our room (no.6) was at the very top of the house (so not for those with mobility issues) with views over the community gardens. The room was... More

This was our second year at Brantfell House and once again it was fabulous. Chris and Jane are wonderful 'hosts' and Brantfell is a wonderful place. The rooms are spotless, decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard and with exceptionally comfortable beds. Breakfast is amazing - excellent service and choice and wonderful food cooked and presented to perfection. Brantfell... More

An exceptionally pleasant return visit to this superb B&B. I have stayed here on a number of occasions and can't fault the overall value for money. Very clean rooms, amazing breakfast and run by a lovely couple. Very good location in Ambleside. I would stay here more often but it is often fully booked because once you have stayed here... More

We chose this B & B off the web and will be returning as soon as possible! We paid extra for a larger room - essential in our opinion because of the lovely room and super view. Everywhere was spotless and looked newly refreshed. Breakfast was excellent - you could choose anything from a long menu and it was freshly... More

Just returned from staying 2 nights at Brantfell House. We were made extremely welcome, the accommodation is lovely, modern and exceptionally clean. Breakfasts are well cooked and ample. The location is excellent and parking is available. Don't need to think about booking, just BOOK, you won't be disappointed.

Enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay at Brantfell House, we had to slightly change the days of our stay last minute due to work commitments but this was not a problem, Chris and Jane were great, nothing was too much trouble. The location was spot on and the breakfast was fantastic. As someone who isn't overly keen on meat I... More

My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay in this lovely b&b. This was our first trip to the lakes and we will definitely be back! Our room was very clean (a little on the small side, room 2) but we didn't mind. The breakfasts were lovely served 8.30 - 9.30 and you can choose virtually... More
