Just spent a couple of days with Simon, Sandra and Olivia at Kent House with our dog! Enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and lovely atmosphere. We felt very welcome and would definitely recommend. Found some great walks very nearby with perfect lake district feel. Thankyou , we will be back! Fay & David

I enjoyed a delightful 2 night stay over half-term with my two children and my friend and her two children. We enjoyed our stay from start to finish. The family rooms were not too cramped and the hosts were very welcoming. They were very accommodating to milk allergies, and all of the children loved the youngest host in the house. Great central location. The rooms are very sound proof. The house was full, but we didn't hear a peep from anyone else. My daughter sends a special thank you to Simon for calling while we were on Todd Crag to say he had found a stray pelican after we checked out. Of course, we hadn't noticed yet, so it was nice to get the call before we left the area. So thoughtful! Many thanks. Hope to return with Daddy too next time.

Just to update previous reviews. Kent house is a lovely traditional lakeland townhouse. The owners and family were welcoming and friendly and the facilities excellent. We also took Simon's recommendation for the best pub in town (Golden Rule) and enjoyed the central location throughout. Breakfast superb, decaf tea and coffee available!
Would use this accommodation again.

Kent House is in a superb location in the centre of Ambleside. The owners were very welcoming and friendly - thank you Simon for recommending a great pub! Our rooms were well kept and nicely furnished, and options for breakfast were great. Thanks for a great stay :)

We visited here for a 1 night stay for my birthday.
We arrived early to give us time to do a walk to troutbeck, not thinking we'd be allowed access to our room at this hour but Simon assured us that this would be no trouble and promptly showed us to our room.
The room was lovely and extremely clean and well furnished and the ensuite bathroom was beautiful.
Simon's local knowledge of the area, and in particular his keen enthusiam for real ale really gave us lots to think about for our night out. Especially his recommended visit to The Mortal Man pub in troutbeck.
Our breakfast (full english) was fantastic and made all the better with my picture of Kent House kindly drawn and donated by Olivia!
We will visit again and can't wait for our next stay.

Many thanks to Sandra and Simon (not forgetting Olivia) for welcoming us into their Guest House in the centre of Ambleside. From the moment we arrived to the time of our departure we were able to relax and enjoy the best of Lakeland hospitality. We particularly appreciated Simon's local knowledge and thoroughly enjoyed our visits to his recommended eating establishments. Breakfasts were first class, our room comfortable and clean, what more could you ask for?

Have just got back from a great couple of days at the Kent House guest house. Simon and Sandra were brilliant. Lovely room, great breakfast.....the best poached eggs ever!! Simon had plenty of local knowledge to share on the best places to walk and run. Location was great too....just a moments walk from the shops and restaurants but not noisy at all.
