This is my forth review of Far Nook. I mentioned in my last review that I was finding it increasingly difficult to conjure up new superlatives to describe this establishment . . . . well this review is no exception to that predicament, and therefore it is a tad reluctantly, (for fear of repeating myself), that I find myself having...

What a smashing little B&B. We tried Far Nook for the first time this year and we loved it. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful House on Ambleside`s outskirts. It is a beautifully presented traditional stone Lakeland property within walking distance of Ambleside. The owners, Tony and Marion couldn`t do enough for us. It is the personal touches... More

Room 1 a double was very comfortable and quiet. Room 2 a twin overlooks their lovely garden where you are invited to sit and relax. We... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay with a friend. Tony and Marian couldn't do enough. We arrived early before our room was ready after a very wet motorcycle ride. They ensured we had a room to change and made us a much welcomed coffee. The house is spotless and our room very comfortable. It is ideally located for a... More

Just back from a two night stay at far nook. Tony and Marian were so welcoming and our room was spotless. Definitely the nicest B and B we have stayed in. 10 minute walk to shops and restaurants. We will be returning very soon. Thank you!
