The b and b was lovely and very well situated. Staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome, even going out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. Parking was a slight issue, through no fault of the Cambridge House but we would recommend arriving in the early afternoon to secure a place close to the b... More

After booking a last minute trip to the Lake District, we had an excellent relaxing stay at Cambridge House, and it was just what was required. The room was great, and the bed was so so comfy. Prior to our stay we noted that previous travellers had said that the beds were small, and we would completely disagree, the bed... More

We had a lovely trip in Windermere. Cambridge House is located very near the train station (10 mins walk), it is very convenient for taking the luggage down to the hostel. The host is very nice and introduced us lots of attractions. Double/Twin beds are available. Beds are comfortable but a little bid small.
