Positives - beautiful shabby chic decor, amazing breakfast with fresh homemade bread, off road parking, the best power shower ever! Negatives - smaller than average room - to put anything else would be being very picky Highly recommended!

We spent 2 nights at Haven Cottage for my hubby's birthday and we weren't disappointed with it. Rooms and house were tastefully decorated which I must admit I really loved. Lovely quirky rooms which I thought were gorgeous. Definitely would stay again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my friends. Breakfast lovely. Amanda made us really welcome. Thanks.

Amanda, the owner, is very personable and helpful and has done a great job in creating a warm, comfortable and appealing property, especially in the common areas. Very good breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

A great place run by a wonderful and attentive lady. A real welcoming atmosphere, great breakfast and great coffee! Beatifully decorated rooms and brilliant attention to detail. Would definitely stay here again! Spotlessly clean and modern and a really good vegetarian breakfast. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a peaceful and enjoyable stay. Faultless service! 10/10

We spent two nights at Haven Cottage on the way to the Commonwealth Games and Highland walks. What a super, friendly and so tastefully decorated B&B. Amanda and team made us feel at home and all the following hotels/ B&Bs were not a patch on it! We shall be back and spend longer in the beautiful Ambleside area!

We stayed at Haven Cottage on the last night of a challenging walking holiday in the Lakes. I wanted our last night to be as comfortable as possible, and hoped for somewhere we could really relax and feel pampered. I chose well. Haven Cottage is not only stunningly beautiful and equipped with roll-top baths, beautiful toiletries, fluffy bathrobes and towels... More

We had a wonderful time at the Haven Cottage B&B. We stayed for one night in august2014. The b&b is run by Amanda who greeted us with tea and cakes in the garden when we arrived (even though we arrived early she welcomed us so nicely). Our room was large with a really comfy bed and plenty of amenities. Everything... More
