Stayed here two nights and had a great stay. The guest house is about 15 minutes walk to Ambleside town centre. Lovely bedroom very clean, spacious and well decorated with lovely views of surrounding countryside. Breakfast was delicious, good choice of cereal, and cooked breakfast was very tasty. I would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Room was cleaned to a very high standard. Good choice for breakfast. Was only a 10-15 min walk into Ambleside which is lovely. We loved the... More

Great breakfast to start the day with good service. The accommodations are good, the gardens wonderful, the views excellent and... More

We needed somewhere to stay near to Ambleside - we wanted somewhere quiet with views over the fells and we found it. Crow How was just all we had wanted. The room was well furnished with a wonderful new bathroom - just what you needed after a day in the fells . . . in the rain! The hotel has... More

This incredible B&B is set on a working farm within walking distance (15 mins) of Ambleside in the Lake District. After doing a lot of research on the Lakes, I came to the conclusion that Ambleside was just big enough and centrally located for all of our needs. It’s not huge like Keswick or Windermere but it also is big... More

We had an amazing break here. The room we had was stunning with a fab view especially from the whirlpool bath. The breakfasts were delicious. This is a great place for walkers and tourists alike. The owners were friendly and a great mix of being there but not in your face. It is a walkable distance from Ambleside although we... More

Beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, immaculate rooms, excellent breakfast and with friendly faces each day this hidden gem deserves more stars. With very spacious rooms and large gardens this place has the feel of a country manor surrounded by idyllic views and quiet farmlands

Nestling in a stunning rural setting in the historic Rydal Valley amidst the fells, this grand Victorian building was built as a farm house in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country Guest House in the early 1930's.
