Ann and Andrew were the perfect hosts. They run a lovely B&B in Ambleside. Our room No 2 was very clean and a good size and we loved the chocolate bars left for us each day. The bathroom/shower was also a very good size and water pressure was very good. You also get a excellent breakfast to set you up... More

This is the first time that we have stayed at 3 Cambridge Villas. We received a lovely welcome from Andy and were shown our room. The bed was immaculate and very comfy.

My husband & I spend 3 nights here this week. It had a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Ann & Andy were very friendly & helpful. A nice comfortable room & very nice breakfast. Should we get a chance to visit the lakes again we would certainly book to stay there again.

We were down for only one night and was a bit disappointed. The room was really small and although it was a double room it only had one chair to sit on. The en suite was tiny and water pressure was really poor. The room was on the front and the noise from the street was bad with drunks until... More

Hi Margaret, Thanks for your review, and we are sorry that you didn't have the best time with us. We are centrally located in the popular village of Ambleside, so unfortunately that means you do have to occasionally put up with the odd idiot walking home at night, as you would in any centrally located building, although it's rare that...

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.

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.
