We booked two nights based on the TA reviews. As others have stated, Dave and Brenda are terrific hosts, the rooms are pristine, breakfasts are to die for, the location is beautiful and just a short walk into the village of Ambleside. It really is wonderful to fall asleep listening to the river run just outside your window. David was so helpful with advice on walks and drives and has a true interest in your enjoyment of the Lakes District. He gave candid advice on restaurants, which we took, and were happy with his recommendations. We tried to wrangle a third night, but they were fully booked. When we go back to the Lakes, we will book the Riverside first as we make our plans so we can stay longer. Book your stay here, you will not be sorry.
