Our second visit to this wonderful cottage was to celebrate my early retirement with my family. It was a fantastic weekend that was largely due to the fabulous welcome and hosting by Amanda, Robert and their little helper (whose name I did not know, sorry !). We hope to be back again very soon.

We have stayed at a dozen places in and around Ambleside, some VERY expensive. Haven Cottage (Room 8) was almost perfect, and fairly priced. A huge bathroom with twin sinks, free-standing bath & large shower is what you find when you open the door to the room. Beyond the bathroom is a stylish bedroom complete with large balcony over-looking Loughrigg.... More

The location of Haven Cottage is ideal with a 5 min walk into Ambleside. The room was comfortable and had a great shower. Breakfast was lovely as was Amanda the owner . The tea and homemade cake on arrival was delicious and a great little touch. Nothing is too much trouble from storing muddy boots to drying wet clothes. Had... More

Couldn't be more pleased with Haven Cottage. A very warm welcome with hot drinks and cake. The new owners were most attentive and helped our stay really enjoyable. They were keen to ensure that our whole stay was one to remember for all the right reasons. We are keen walkers and were able to leave our car safely in the... More

Lovely well appointed B&B. Amanda is very welcoming and helpful and Haven Cottage is a great base for walking in the hills. Breakfast is excellent, with local produce definitely meaning you want to sample it all. Thanks for a great stay!

We fell in love with Haven Cottage from the moment we arrived to a warm and friendly welcome from Amanda. We had been lucky enough to book Room 8 and we able to enjoy our picnic with wine on the balcony overlooking Loughrigg Fell. Room 8 is something special and unusual in that you enter through the bathroom which has... More
