Not the best b&b in the world but for a b&b in central Ambleside it is reasonably priced for what you get. Clearly run by a family and not staffed like others it is quaint but tired. Gardens are well maintained, and has ample parking. The bathrooms are in great need of updating, and perhaps more attention to detail to... More

Room badly needs renovating / painting as all paint worn off on window frame. Bathroom filthy, mildew around bath and taps. Breakfast appalling. All in all a tired run down b&b that needs a major overhaul.

The room we stayed in was lovely, clean and bright, nice bathroom/ shower, and the hotel is situated 5 mins walk from the centre of Ambleside. Thats the positive.... On the negative side if you enjoy a full English breakfast prepare yourself for a long wait. The breakfast window is between 8.00am and 9.00am, we got down for breakfast on... More

Stayed here for a weekend as a gift from our daughters. Arrived and check in was prompt, we had room 8, which was on the second floor. The room was a decent size, if not a little dated, but was very clean. The bed was lovely and comfy and had an extremely good and quiet sleep. The en suite bathroom... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I apologise again for your hot bath tap not working during your stay. We tried our best to fix it but I am afraid that we are not plumbers. Most people would appreciate that we were unable to get a plumber to come out to fix it at... More

Stayed here for the second time with my girlfriend for three nights. The room was clean and tidy with hot drinks on offer, free view and en-suite. The breakfasts were lovely with plenty of options. We took bikes which Cherry Garth had secure storage for. The only negative I would say, the place could do with a little face lift,... More

A lovely friendly guest house, right near the centre . Typical room decor. A little dated but that's what you want/expect in the Lake District. Breakfast more than ample and excellent choice. Very quiet even though it was on the main road. Ideal for walkers.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cherry Garth is a 19th-century traditional Lakeland house situated in Ambleside village in the heart of the Lake District. Cherry Garth is family owned and run by sisters Amy and Viv and is superbly positioned less than five minutes walk from both the centre of Ambleside and Lake Windermere. Guests benefit from a sunny south-westerly aspect with wonderful views over the surrounding Lakeland fells. We have a large private car park at the bottom of our garden, just off the main road into Ambleside. Cherry Garth is a non-smoking house which welcomes well behaved pets. We have 11 en-suite bedrooms including four-poster, deluxe and family sized rooms. All rooms have tea & coffee making facilities and flatscreen TV with built in DVD. The landscaped garden features level lawns, attractive sitting areas, an ornamental pond and a wide variety of mature flowering shrubs and bushes. The house and garden are floodlit each evening, allowing guests to take in the view and watch the sun setting whilst sitting outside enjoying a drink. ... more   less
