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

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. :)

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
