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

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.
