We received a very friendly welcome at Haven Cottage which is a faultless accommodation. Perfect situation: in the heart of the Lake District, with many restaurants accessible by foot (special mention for Dodd’s). Car parking spaces are available (one space for each room). Our room (Infamous Room 8) was large, light, comfortable, with a flat TV, a small “office” table,... More

Stayed in haven for 2 nights in July. Great location close to village with parking. Rooms quite small but comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent with beautiful fresh fruit and tasty cooked food. Hosts very helpful and welcoming. Definitely not Fawlty Towers!

The English Lakes District is a beautiful place and Haven Cottage in Ambleside a great venue in which to stay to visit it. We have just returned from an 8 week trip around UK & Ireland using 41 different B&Bs and thoroughly enjoyed 3 nights here. Haven Cottage ranked in the top 10 places in which we stayed. Our room...

Haven Cottage is a very apt name - the perfect haven. Loved the room, loved the breakfast (the best bacon that I've ever tasted), loved the service. This is a class act, and comes absolutely recommended.

Haven Cottage was perfectly located for exploring the Lake District. The cottage was beautifully decorated and Amanda was friendly and welcoming. I loved the yoghurt, fresh fruit, muesli and seeds followed by a cooked full Cumbrian breakfast each morning - ideal to set us up for a days walk. Room was a small but had everything we needed and more... More

We had a perfect stay at Haven Cottage. The room (room 8) was incredible, particularly the bathroom. We had a comfortable night's sleep followed by an excellent breakfast on both days. The BnB is in a great location for walking and for accessing local shops/restaurants/pubs. Would definitely be happy to return if we're ever in the area again.

Could tell from the moment we stepped into the cottage that it was of a very high standard, attention to detail is everywhere.Amanda and her team do an exceptional job..its obvious that the breakfast is locally sourced , there's not a fault to be found anywhere, would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family .

Lovely place with friendly and unintrusive host. Room 8 had a huge bathroom and felt very private. Easy to find, great location and recommendation for restaurant was spot on. Would loved to have stayed longer.

A fabulous place to stay in the Lake District. Immaculate, stylish and extremely well presented, a most comfortable b&b. A real home from home that is so welcoming. Amanda is a fantastic host and the whole team should be rightly proud of what they have achieved.
