A beautiful location not far from Ambleside, but situated away from the main road gives a feeling of being far more remote. Just the sound of sheep, birds and the odd tractor. Wonderful. Our immaculate, spacious room with four poster bed had lovely views over towards Loughrigg. We had a fantastic 5 day stay with perfect breakfasts and Crow How... More

This is just a gorgeous place. Situated far off the main road away from any noise on an old farm. It's a great big old country house with very large rooms. It has a very comfy home like feel to it. Our room had a large tv with blue ray player and we were delighted to choose from a selection... More

We stayed at crow how last weekend and had a lovely time, the room was spacious and kept to a high standard, immaculate and clean, the bathroom was just as spacious and totally relaxing. We stayed in a premier room and was worth the money. Set on the grounds of a working farm it was lovely to see the sheep... More

My wife and I visited the Lake District for the first time and looked for a quiet place, good parking and within easy reach of restaurants. We found it. Fully concur with all the other positive statements on this B&B. Very clean, very quiet and with a 15 minute walk you are at the restaurants in Ambleside. Could not have... More

Lovely house. Short walk (15 mins) into ambleside with good restaurants, shops etc. Staff very friendly and breakfast excellent. The room we had was very clean, as were all access areas. Garden lovely and gets the sun in the evening - nice to sit out with a drink in. Would stay again.

We stayed for two nights, and I must say that Crow How is a fantastic place to stay....positions just right for walks in the countryside, and not too far away from Ambleside. Will definitely be having a return trip. Scott & Rachel

Stayed the first week of September 2013 and found it to be just the perfect stay for us. The other reviews say it all. We had room #1 and #4 and we're very pleased. So pleased that we are returning for a full week in about 60 days.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in a stunning rural setting in the historic Rydal Valley amidst the fells, this grand Victorian building was built as a farm house in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country Guest House in the early 1930's. Set in our own 2 acre gardens Crow How has been sympathetically renovated to provide you with a perfect base to explore the beautiful Lake District. ... more   less
