A warm friendly welcome. Great location, lovely homely warm room. The breakfast was very nice and set us up for the day of walking ahead. Jake the dog was a hit with my daughter! Staff very helpful - overall a great place to stay.

We had a lovely stay. The hotel is really quirky with lovely furnishings. Everything was welcoming and well laid out. We had afternoon tea on arrival and there was a very reasonable honesty bar. We had a lovely breakfast with individual games to play. We stayed in room 2 which is fairly compact but with nice furniture and decorations. Everyone... More

My boyfriend and i visited Ambleside this weekend for one night after he booked a surprise break. We easily found the cottage and were relieved to see that it was only a 5 minite walk into the village itself. There is a small amount of parking but we had no problems finding a space. We were greeted by lovely staff... More

I had high expectations for the Haven and I wasn't disappointed. As soon as you walk in this warm and stylish place you are made to feel welcome. We were offered coffee and cake when we arrived which is such a nice appreciated touch which is served in the lovely snug lounge. We booked room 4 which has a bath... More

A little belated as we stayed at Haven Cottage for 2 nights on the 9th & 10th December. Ambleside was a winter wonderland at this time of year & a place we're likely to return to next year at the same time. Arriving outside Haven Cottage brings a smile to any face, and upon entering the smile strengthens. The place... More

We stayed here during our driving tour of the UK for just one night and really wish we had longer. Ambleside is a beautiful area and the hosts of "Haven Cottage" were fantastically friendly and helpful. We were given instructions for a beautiful walk to the lake and were looked after in every way during the stay. Breakfast was beautiful... More

I have just returned from a lovely stay at the Haven. This is the first time that I had tried this B and B, and I'm glad I did! It is a lovely homely B and B just outside Ambleside. On arrival I was treated to a coffee and cakes and met Jake the dog (very sweet - wanted to... More

Me and my wife stayed here at the end of September for 2 nights for my wife's birthday. Upon arrival we were welcomed with tea and cakes and also the famous Jake the dog.
