We recently stayed a couple of nights and felt right at home. The room was comfortable and clean. The off street parking was fantastic (and essential in Ambleside!). The hosts were wonderful. So caring and attentive. We needed to leave quite early one morning and they accommodated us with an early breakfast - so considerate! This accommodation is right in... More

Stayed for 2 nights whilst in the area for the Great North Swim. Room was lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. Great location - very close to the shops and cafes/restaurants in the town. Catherine and Graham were welcoming hosts and breakfast was delicious.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June on the way home from Scotland and found the location fantastic for exploring. Situated near the town centre we were within easy walk of the shops and restaurants. Our room itself was on the top floor and had a huge comfortable bed with a nice bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious with lots... More

We are Australians visiting relatives in UK. As part of our holiday we visited Ambleside in the beautiful Lake District. My cousin had booked, sight unseen, for 2 nights at Lacet House, a B&B right in the heart of Ambleside. What a wonderful haven it proved to be! We were welcomed by host, Catherine and shown to our well appointed,... More

We go regularly to the Lake District at this time of year to take part in the Hawkshead Trail Run. This is the first time we have stayed in Ambleside and chose Lacet House because of the good reviews. We weren't disappointed as Lacet Housel more than lives up to its reputation. We stayed in room 5 which is at... More

We arrived in Ambleside after a long journey, a terrible nights sleep in a tent and didn't pre-book any accommodation. Out of all the b&bs we asked Lacet House was the cheapest and we even got more space than we needed. The owners, Katherine and Graham, we're absolutely brilliant! Perfect hosts for all your travel needs. Pick your own breakfast,... More

Thank you Catherine and Graham for an excellent 4 night stay. Perfect breakfast set us up for a few hard days of walking - can complete Fairfield Horseshoe door to door what could be better. One of the cleanest B&B's we have been to. Our room was a very good size with plenty of hangers in the wardrobe and additional... More
