We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely little B&B in Ambleside and we can't seem to fault it. Upon arrival to a rainy Ambleside we were kindly greeted by Andrew who immediately took our orders for breakfast the next day and showed us somewhere we could park our car.

Andrew and Ann are great hosts! Their rooms are not huge, but are pretty and cozy. The location is central, a 20-minute drive/bus ride from Windermere station. Bus stand is right there. There are multiple cafes that you can explore walking. A perfect stay in the dreamy Ambleside.

Pros: Lovely hosts, excellent breakfast. Right at the center of Ambleside and parking provided! The only con was that the room we stayed was quite small and a bit noisy during the day. Overall good experience!

Stayed for just one night but it was very comfortable and clean. The owner was so friendly and helped recommend local bars, shops and restaurants. Great location. We were well catered for considering the recent floods, which must have been dreadful. Rooms were lovely with good quality furniture and bathroom condiments. We will be back! Thank you x
