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

I really liked my stay at Haven Cottage. What could be better than a friendly greeting followed by tea and cake outdoors looking over Loughrigg? A great breakfast, an honesty bar and well appointed clean and comfortable room - very adequate indeed! Not only that but within minutes you can be in the centre of Ambleside and enjoy one of...

We have been to Haven Cottage numerous times but this was the first with the new owners. We were pleased (and relieved) to find that it has lost none of it's charm and warm welcome. Amanda is lovely and has retained the best features (cake and homemade bread!) but has refurbished the place to an excellent standard. Amanda's plans for... More

We were very happy with the stay and the owners were very nice and welcoming. There was a freak plumbing problem which they resolved as quickly as they could. But please don't be put off by that as it won't re-occur. The place is well situated in Ambleside and looks as if it has been fully re-furbished in the last... More

At first I decided to take a break and have a day in the Lakes. Then I thought that if the weather was good, we could make the most of it with an overnight stay. A bit later I decided that there was little point in wasting time hunting for somewhere to stay once we had got there, so I... More

We have often thought that when an establishment changes hands then the previous TA reviews should not count towards its rating. Haven Cottage changed ownership, apparantly, some six months ago, and reading the recent crop of reviews it is even better than it was previously, so our theory would fail miserably here. Certainly our experience was that it was one... More

Another great stay in Haven Cottage. Changed hands since I last visited but just as lovely. Great rooms, comfy bed, nice lounge area and a hearty breakfast. Couple all this with a friendly host and what more could you ask for!

Amanda and Robert are the perfect hosts. From the warm welcome to full English breakfasts to helpful hints about where to hike and map loans they go out of their way to make your stay truly memorable. Lovely clean cottage, comfortable beds, great breakfasts. The only minor drawback is the size of the room... Small and tight, but the large... More
