Good location for Ambleside and an ideal base to get around and explore. Friendly and comfortable guesthouse, very clean and if you can book a themed room they have been done very tastefully....and with Jacuzzi bath! Excellent breakfast and service from the owners - especially the "Walkers Breakfast Option" which was fabulous (even though we are not serious walkers). Would... More

The hotel is in a very convenient location, just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside and 5 minutes walk to Windermere Lake. Ambleside is a very nice town with a lot of options for restaurants and cafes. The hotel offers a very large and good quality breakfast. The owners are very friendly and helpful offering tips of where... More

Just spent 2 fantastic days in Ambleside while we competed in the Coniston 14 road race. After a long drive from Lincolnshire we arrived late but simply not a problem as the hosts were fantastic and even let me store my race bike in his shed and gave me a key so I could get to it as and when...

Simply the Best BnB in Lake District! I stayed there a year ago with my fiance and friends. The hosts were really good. Breakfast is also good! The best parts are the rooms and the location. It was a get away trip from hectic life of London and this place provided 100% of relaxation and cozyness.

Lovely B and B with friendly host. The rooms were very warm and did well to dry our wet clothes after a hike in the rain! The bed was very comfortable, the room was spotless, internet worked well and the cooked breakfast was good. They do their best to accommodate requests and we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Africa room. It was spacious and the spa bath was very welcome after a long walk in the cold rain. You can hear traffic noise but it didn't bother us. The breakfast was excellent and even though porridge wasn't on the menu they happily made a large bowl for my husband each morning.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the four poster room 8. Beautiful room with all that we needed. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Breakfast although only served between 8.30-9 was great and timings were not a problem for us. Location- was perfect. Short walk from town and the lake. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.
