Booked a couple of days here and was really impressed, great value for money, helpful host with lovely food and perfect location. Room a bit dated but clean and perfect for a base to explore the lakes, will definitely be returning.

The room itself was lovely, and the bed seemed to be... More

The room was clean and had a selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The en suite had a small shower and toilet. There is no air conditioning... More

Lovely place to stay in Ambleside a good location, very good choice of breakfast, excellent wifi free in all rooms. Host Alan was very friendly. My only gripe was the size of the ensuite in our room which was rather snug. Overall i would book this Bed and Breakfast again.
