We first stayed at Crow How in 2007 and have returned, often several times, every year since then. It is in a superb location with wonderful views and an easy stroll into Ambleside. The tastefully decorated bedrooms are spacious, well furnished and very comfortable with modern en-suite facilities. The peaceful and relaxing ambience of the hotel is enhanced by the... More

Spent 4 nights here. We had a very nice good sized room with a lovely big modern bathroom. A big comfortable bed and a thoughtfully put together room with nice attention to detail. Crow How is a 10 minute walk from Ambleside which suited us just fine. Helped to walk dinner off every night. This is a very typical English... More

Beautiful setting, fabulous views and very comfortable rooms. The breakfast was great using local produce and everywhere was immaculate and lovely décor. As it was a treat I can recommend room 1 with the super size bed and luxurious bath, but all of the rooms look fabulous on the website.

Spent 3 nights at Crow How, our first visit. Beautiful house, really well appointed and comfortable en suite room, brilliant bed (esp. after previous night in Travelodge!). Huge, tasty breakfast; short walk into Ambleside. Did two long walks straight from house, nice not to use car!

We stayed for just one night - but were very impressed with the friendly staff, beautifully decorated (spotlessly clean) rooms, excellent breakfast and ideal location. We would definitely return next time we are in the area.
