2 Cambridge Villas
Ranked #17 of 103 Ambleside B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 23, 2013

I would definitely recommended Cambridge villas, excellent location, really nice rooms and Tina who was running the B&B was really friendly and helpful. The B&B is located in the heart of Ambleside really close to all major attractions in Ambleside. Will definitely stay there again.

Lovely B&B - very amenable host and hostess - immaculately clean room and en-suite. Would definitely recommend No 2 Cambridge Villas. 100M from town center yet on a quiet road. Fantastic nearby restaurants and cinemas - hostess a great source of information.

I had a lovely double room on the first floor.

It was very clean and smart.

I think it may well have just been decorated.

En suite toilet and shower.

Very convenient location, right in the heart of Ambleside.

Easy access to public transport. Main bus stop just round corner.

Car parking on street right outside. (Free in evenings)
Free disc parking - 1 Hr during day. Discs readily available locally.
Plenty of spaces in low season, busy during high season.
Car park just round corner.

Happy to report my family of 4, including 2 young boys, had a great stay at 2 Cambridge Villas. Bridget and Charlie gave us a warm welcome, excellent food and helpful service. They even dried our wet things after a soaking on the Fells! A pleasure to have the option to stay in central Ambleside with children in tow.

Just returned from a 2 night stay here. Pleasant enough room with beautifully tiled en suite (if a little narrow) Warm and cosy, plenty of hot water, efficient shower, large towels. Biscuits on the bedroom tray good quality. Owners pleasant and helpful. Delicious cooked breakfasts. Car parking available ( a bonus in Ambleside) although you could possibly get blocked in by other guests - we didn't!
WiFi is available although the website didn't say so which put me off taking my laptop. No big deal but might be important for some.

We stayed last year for a few days and just booked to stay again - lovely ensuite double room and hope for the same room again as it has a nice view and has everything you need.
Lovely cooked breakfast and parking availiable which is fab.
The location is good for walks, shops, food and pubs.
Wow...200 words is alot....I went for a first trip away with my new chap who is also coming with me this time. He has stayed here a few times and likes it very much.
Was nice and clean with a lovely new little shower room.
There were complimentary kitkats in the room.....free parking at the back.
