We decided upon Ambleside for a 2 night stopover after our tour of Scotland. The Haven seemed ideally situated for the short walk into Ambleside village. Its obvious that a lot of time and effort have gone into creating The Haven and the rooms are decorated to a high standard. The hosts Rob and Amanda are a smashing couple and... More

Very hospitable hosts. Slightly off town central (5-10mins walk or 1-2mins drive) so the neighbourhood is quiet peaceful. Highly recommended. Robert will be there to give you tips of where to go, enjoyed the walk he recommended.

Everything about this place was perfection. From the hosts, really nice people, to the room, breakfast, location, everything was faultless. Would highly recommend this to anybody and will definitely stay here again when going to the area. Was really friendly and we felt 'trusted', no lists of does and dont's which happens in some places and got the impression nothing... More

Very nice bed and breakfast, nice location, car parking on site -real bonus. Rooms small but very comfortable. Breakfast-lots of choices and very substantial -enough to last you all day! Proprietor very welcoming and helpful. Will return in future

We booked suite room 4 for two nights and from the moment we walked in everything was spot on. Shame about the rain but that just gave us the excuse to share bath tub with a bottle of bubbly in the afternoon. Plus the lounge was a great cosy room to watch a movie. We don't normally do reviews but... More

I travel extensively every week and stay in a variety of accommodation across the UK. I was extremely impressed with Haven Cottage. The decor, maintenance of showers, stairwells, communal and bedrooms as well as the furniture was extremely high. When you consider that a high percentage of the people staying are walking or undertaking outdoor pursuits this was impressive. One... More

We regularly stay in B&Bs and this is now in our top 5 favourites. A warm welcome from the lovely Amanda, an ideal location within walking distance of Ambleside town centre, a beautifully decorated and spotless room and a perfect breakfast. What more could one ask? Amanda even went out of her way to cater for my wife's need for... More

Friendly greeting from the owners, who gave us afternoon tea on the terrace. A perfect location for Ambleside - not right in the busy town centre but a short walk away. The breakfasts were excellent and everyone was very attentive. A great stay!

A really lovely place to stay and the owner was so welcoming when we arrived with tea and cakes. Beautiful cottage which was immaculate throughout and a very good breakfast. I would definitely stay again .
