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+++

Just spent four wonderful nights at Brantfell House. Can't praise Jane and Chris enough for their welcome-- nothing was too much bother. Lovely room (3) overlooking the park. Spotlessly clean with a very comfy bed. As someone who suffers from restless syndrome I had the best nights sleep in ages. Breakfast ranks among the best we have had (and that... More

A nice place, biggish rooms, decent bathroom, owners hospitable. Honestly bar with only beer, spirits or champagne. Breakfast cooked to order. I'm not sure it would stand above the myriad of other B and B's in the street and neighbouring streets, that frankly, all looked the same, regardless we were happy and comfortable here for two nights.

Room was small but fully equiped and with a modern en-suite - all clean and comfortable. Chris, Jane and Julie were all very friendly and welcoming. Excellent breakfast cooked to order. I would definitely recommend Brantfell and hope to visit again. Although parking is difficult in Ambleside, Chris and Jane had solutions and gave us a parking permit to use... More
