We stayed there for three nights, the hosts were lovely, any questions always there to help while having large rooms which were very clean. The area is lovely and the B&B was perfectly placed within walking distance of the town centre and all the attractions

The ensuite was also spotless and beautifully appointed. We enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast which set us up for our day out walking. We wished we were staying for a bit longer but definately...

Just returned from a two day stay, for the second time, very friendly and welcoming and the rooms are lovely and clean and warm when it's chilly outside. I would definately recommend it. Maureen & Bob.

Jut returned from 2 nights at the Wanslea and we shall definitely be returning. Everything was perfect - down to the fact that our doggie was given a sausage every morning courtesy of Richard.

First time my wife and I have stayed here although we have stayed at various Ambleside hotels and guest houses in the past. The owner 'Richard' is a nice chap and very welcoming. The Africa room we stayed in was spacious and very clean and the jacuzzi bath was great for the post walk stiffness. The car park is a... More
