Stayed here for two nights for a friends wedding at a larger hotel in Ambleside. The rooms are spacious, clean & very comfortable (mine had four-poster bed & chandelier!) yet the hotel feels very homely & the staff are very friendly & welcoming. The breakfasts are wonderful with a great choice of home cooked wholesome options that would set anyone... More

We had a 2 night break at The Cherry Garth and were very impressed! The rooms were lovely with good guest information and our top floor room had a beautiful view. The free parking is great and the location means you are only about 10 minutes from Ambleside which is fantastic. We went for dinner in a restaurant recommended by... More

On arrival we were very pleased, we had a small double which was really nice with an en suite. There was an authentic stone wall in the room and we could even see mountains out of the window. The owner also has two rabbits, one of which we saw - very cute! They have gone to a lot of trouble... More

Just got back from spending 3 nights at the cherry garth. Great location, only a 5 minute walk from Ambleside main centre with shops/cafés/pubs etc. Free parking which was a major bonus as we could go out and not have to worry about a time limit! We stayed in room 10 which was nice and cosy, bed was comfy and... More

A last minute booking for a 'deluxe room' at a staggering charge of £135.00 per night advertised as the only room available to find that we and another couple appeared to be the only ones staying. There were no other cars in their car park.The room far from deluxe was far too cold to feel comfortable with a broken radiator... More

We stayed at Cherry Garth for just one night with our little dog and found it to be just ok. It was clean but a little dated in need of some TLC. Our room 9 was located on the top floor which is a bit of a hike to be honest I counted a total of 50 steps including the... More

My friend and I were very disappointed. The room, a standard, was old fashioned, tired and needed updating. Although the weather was not especially cold, the room felt cold and we had to request an extra heater. The bathroom was freezing and the small radiator - totally inadequate. Bed was very hard. Breakfast on both mornings was poor in terms... More

We do have fan heaters available if people feel the need for extra heat as we try to accommodate everybody's needs. As on the first morning we had... More
