My wife and I wanted a short break in the Lake District with our 2 dogs
Simon and Sandra offered a package for the 4 nights. We were welcomed on arrival by Simon who showed us our room (on suite, double bed, settee and tea and coffee facilities)
Breakfast next day supplied by Sandra full English with fruit, muesli, breakfast cereals starters, tea and filter coffee. Simon offered suggestions places to visit as his knowledge of the Lakes was endless and on his recommendations we filled our days with some great sight seeing and visits.
Our dogs were accommodated in out bedroom overnight and were no trouble to our hosts
Muddy boots to be placed in the porch and we cleaned our dogs feet after our days out which was appreciated by our hosts
Comfy beds great hosts and would recommend a must stay for the Lakes

Had one night here in a family room on the top floor. Was a great size with enough room for 2 adults & 2 children. Bathroom was next door which was very handy. Backing up to the parking space was a little drama- but once parked was ok. Hosts are very friendly & accomodating!

Home from home two night stay for me and my wife. The location of Kent house is excellent it's centrally located in Ambleside which was ideal for us. Simon the owner was very welcoming and made our stay a pleasant one, the breakfast we received was lovely as well, couldn't have any complaints.

Just back from 3 nights stay at Kent House and had a lovely stay. This guest house is in a perfect location, in the middle of everything but nice and quiet once inside. Our room had everything you could need for a relaxing getaway, comfy bed, plenty of room for all your belongings and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was great and catered for all tastes. Really cannot fault this accomadation in any way. Thanks to Simon for all your help and advice. Would like to think we will return here in the future.

My husband, myself and our dog have just had a lovely 3 night stay at Kent House.
We would like to thank Simon for his great hospitality. He is very helpful with his advice and nothing is too much bother for him. We stayed in room 3 which was very clean, comfortable, warm and spacious. We appreciated the tea, coffee and hot chocolate making facilities which we took advantage of when returning after a day out. Breakfast is very good with a wide variey of cereals, there is also fresh fruit and yogurt. The cooked breakfast is of good quality and quantity served along with toast and tea or coffee. Like a previous comment, this is a dog friendly establishment and we also agree that there is no trace of this. The weather was very wet Monday and Tuesday, Simon let us know that he had plenty of spare towels that we could use for the dog should we run out of our own, this would have been very useful should the bad weather have continued, thankfully it didn't. Ambleside is a lovely place to stay with so many other places to visit within easy reach and we enjoyed the fact that we could take our dog into pubs which serve food, we even took her to a restaurant. Coming from Yorkshire we are used to people being friendly, however I have to say that the local people here are even more friendly making the toursits feel very welcome. We do hope to return to Ambleside and we would certainly stay at Kent House again.

Booked for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. I've been to Ambleside before but not stopped in the town and would highly recommend Kent House. Great hospitality, lovely breakfast and as per title clean and comfortable
