Our room was superb, spotless, tasteful decor, well thought out, with an en suite and lovely little extras... 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!

We were made to feel very welcome. The accommodation is fantastic with very tasteful décor and is extremely clean. A good range and choice of breakfasts which were delicious. The owners of the bed and breakfast were very friendly and welcoming and could not have helped us more. They advised us of places we could visit and the best places... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Far Nook - really deserves it's 5 star rating. Tony and Marion were great host, very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were wonderful - we sample the vegetarian option as well as the Full English. Very comfortable and clean. We definitely hope to return to The Far Nook.

We stayed at this beautiful 5 star gold B & B in Ambleside. The hosts were fabulous and felt like family by the time I left, they were so lovely. They advised fabulous places to eat and walk and we were sad to leave! I personally highly recommend this beautiful place and definitely want to return again. :)

We have just returned from a weekend stay in Ambleside and stayed at Far Nook. I can highly recommend the hotel, spotlessly clean, with a lovely comfortable bedroom and nearby to walk into the town. Marion and Tony who run the B & B are a lovely couple, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Attention to... More

First stay at Far Nook, a birthday treat from my daughter. Cannot sing it`s praises enough. Marion and Tony are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our room was of a very high standard and really comfortable. The breakfast was really good and very well presented. The cleanliness was second to none. An altogether enjoyable weekend. Thank you...

This was our second visit to Far Nook, and we were not disappointed. Only 3 rooms but each one is of a very high standard and every need catered for. The breakfast is simply superb, and the local sausages are to be recommended (ask for the butchers address and buy some on the way home!) . The very friendly hosts,... More

We booked this B&B for three nights while exploring the Lake District during a 17 day trip to England. We booked the twin bed room and it was lovely. The breakfast was delicious and had everything we needed for a good starting meal of the day. We can't say enough good things about Marian and Tony - a truly lovely... More
