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.

With our room being at the front of... More

We stayed here for the weekend and it was fabulous. The house is within easy walking distance to Ambleside town and the rooms are presented very well. I'd recommend this to dog owners as our dogs had sausages for breakfast each morning courtesy of the host!

A excellent b&b. The owner was very informative when you wanted to know about things to do. Very pleasant. The hotel was situated close to all the amenities . Food and room was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. if you like walking long or short walks this is the place to go. Many thanks Bill & shirley Lockett

Stayed at the Wanslea for Halloween weekend, and I must say it was one of most pleasant experiences we have encountered in the Lakes. Spotless room, stocked each day with tea, coffee and mints. Richard and his staff could not do enough for us, from giving us extra towel's to helping us pick what to do on our non-walking day's.... More
