We stayed for two nights and have it say it was amazing. Great location, 5 minute walk to all the local restaurants and bars. The room was beautiful, decorated wonderfully and the room was spotless. Very friendly staff and breakfast was great, there was so much choice. I would strongly recommend this B&B. 10/10.

Seeing Haven Cottage on arrival I knew we were in for a treat and I wasn't wrong! The decor is lovely, the rooms spotless, I've never seen such a clean bathroom! Our room was small but we didn't need anything bigger. We were offered tea and cake on arrival, such a nice touch. Breakfast was delicious. The only slight downside... More

Great location at top end of Ambleside, very quiet in room. Walk straight into town where lots of really lovely pubs. Friendly, great breakfast and well decorated room. It's a very nice place to stay.

Amanda and Robert were the best hosts. Excellent breakfasts. Situated in the lovely area of Ambleside and walking distance to a number of excellent restaurants, wine shop etc etc. We could not...

Had a fab stay in room 8. Very spacious and beautifully decorated . Enjoyed having a private balcony with gorgeous views. Amanda welcomed us to her b&b and was a great host.

Very tastefully modernised and re-decorated, this is at the upper end of the B&B spectrum. Good attention to detail (not least in the quality of the beds and bed-linen) and in Amanda a charming and thoughtful host. Be warned that some of the en-suites, though all modernised, are necessarily "cosy". A good breakfast with fresh fruit and yoghurt on offer... More

We have stayed in numerous B&Bs in Europe and the UK over the past 5 years and none have been better than Haven Cottage. The breakfast is more than what is required. Amanda runs the B&B with a friendly but professional attitude.

We have had an amazing stay at the Haven Cottage to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, Amanda was great with providing personalised service and have helped me arrange a bit of surprise for my man's big day! Breakfast was superb and really felt being at home but away from home. Especially after a tiring day hiking, the room gives a warm... More

2nd visit now to the establishment in what has become an annual trip to Ambleside and staying at Haven Cottage! Amanda and the team ensure a warm welcome with delicious home baked cakes on arrival served with either tea, freshly brewed coffee (an excellent choice) or a cooler beverage if you prefer which sets the tone for the amazing hospitality...
