As regular visitors to Ambleside, the Amboseli Lodge has always been a topic of conversation between my husband and I. It looks so inviting and homely sitting amongst its taller neighbours and is always fronted by a sign advertising ‘no vacancies’ which speaks volumes. Rather than leave it to chance, we opted to book in advance and were more than... More

Amboseli Lodge is a small b&b near the centre of Ambleside, overlooking the park. It's in a great location for exploring Ambleside, and of course the surrounding area. We visited in August as we were attending a wedding nearby. It's a lovely b&b, but what really makes it special are the proprietors, Gwen and Reg, they really couldn't be friendlier... More

Booked two nights as a break on the way back to Devon after visiting our son and his family in Scotland and we were so delighted with this accommodation and the friendly owners that we stayed on an extra night. Wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived as originally wanted to stay in a character village pub but as... More

Fabulous accomodation in the centre of Ambleside with lovely views from the room. Breakfast was delicous too, would definitely stay here again. The owners were really friendly and had lots of local knowledge.

Gwen's greeting couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming and set the tone for the rest of our stay. We loved our spacious en-suite room with great views of Wansfell Pike (which we climbed) and delicious cooked breakfasts. All facilities worked perfectly and were of a very high quality, we especially liked the "magic light" mirror. Plus, Gwen and Reg... More

We have stayed with Gwen and Reg an number of times, and returned because of the great previous experiences. We had arrived after a long day walking with a welcome at the door from Reg along with a much appreciated cup of tea. The service from both of them was first rate, they are always friendly and willing to help.... More

Gwen and Reg made us feel at home the minute we walked into their house. Our room had everything we needed and breakfast was excellent. Amboseli Lodge is in the centre of Ambleside, opposite a park, and quiet at night despite being on a busy street. A very convenient location for walkers. Highly recommended.
