Booked this location after reading reviews on Tripadvisor - for two couples spending three nights in the Lake District. Arrived mid-afternoon and although the owners George and Lindsey were not around they had, by previous arrangement, left our room keys in a safe place along with directions to the free parking space, which was just a two minute walk away....

We stayed for 2 nights in August and were made to feel very welcome. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. George was helpful and friendly, giving us advice on walks etc. His recommendations for eating out were much appreciated. Breakfast was great!! Definitely go back.

Whilst out walking, our evening restaurant rang & cancelled our reservation due to the proprietors wife going into labour. We were on top of the fells with only a little... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming Visit Britain 4*Bed and Breakfast property, with free off-road parking for each room, is conveniently situated in Ambleside town centre in the very heart of the English Lake District, Wainwright's Walking Country. The beautiful waters of Windermere, Rydal and Grasmere are within easy walking distance as are the historic homes of Wordsworth, Ruskin and Beatrix Potter. Each room has been individually styled - as the B&B has been created from an original Lakeland Stone townhouse, so typical of Ambleside, no room is the same shape or size, but we hope that each one is as comfortable, attractive and pleasing as the next! All rooms have either a double or king sized bed, newly refurbished en-suite shower room and flat screen TV. Hospitality trays, hairdryers, wine glasses and corkscrew come as standard. Free wi-fi is available. Prices include a selection of breakfast choices. ... more   less
