My husband and I traveled to the Lake District for a short holiday in September this year. We stayed 4 nights, and spent the holiday walking. Amboseli Lodge was the perfect B and B for us. The location is of course excellent, and within easy walking distance of plenty of great restaurants. There is parking which really helps! And everything... More

We stayed at this excellent B and B for two nights recently and what a pleasant experience we had. Everything was so clean, the breakfast was excellent and the charming proprietors, Reg and Gwen, were a delight, often going beyond what is expected. We wouldn't hesitate to return here.

Nothing was too much trouble and it was a breath of fresh air to have such a personal touch: felt like I was part of the family. If ever in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in August - our first time at Amboseli Lodge, having had word of mouth recommendations. We’ve stayed in a lot of B&Bs in the Lakes and can honestly say this is one of the very best. Owners Gwen and Reg were very friendly and welcoming. They have 3 rooms – 2 at the front of... More

The whole visit was excellent from the greetings from Gwen and Reg (It had been four years since our last visit but they had not changed a bit), to the clean and comfortable and well thought out room, to the super breakfast and the chats and useful advice about the weather, where to walk and where to go for a...

It had sadly been a long long while since we had been able to visit the Lake District but, once we received again big hugs at the door from the ever lovely Gwen and Reg (swiftly followed by a very welcome mug of tea), it quickly felt like we'd only seen them the year before! We have stayed at Amboseli... More

We stayed for three nights in August 2016. Amboseli Lodge is a great place to stay for a home away from home. Gwen and Reg are knowledgeable and are always happy to help in any way they can. The room was comfortable without being fussy. There was a good choice for breakfast and the quality of food was excellent. Situated... More

This was our first time visiting the Lake District and it certainly will not be the last. Amboseli Lodge was just perfect. Reg and Gwen are a fantastic couple, even before we met them there correspondence was great.
