Thoroughly recommend as a great place to stay, like staying with a very good friend such was the genuine hospitality. Very comfortable, extremely clean accommodation. Excellent breakfast, huge choice, nothing too much trouble. Location ideal for both the town and walking.
Overall the experience could not be faulted. Sad to leave and will definately be staying again in the near future.

Lovely peaceful location but only 5 mins walk into Ambleside. Fabulous view from front bedroom. Made to feel very welcome by helpful and caring host. Great breakfast with free range eggs and vege sausage.

We stayed in the Loughrigg room and had a magnificent view over the hills, the location is fantastic being just off the beaten track so it's very quiet of an evening and morning so you aren't woken up by passers by.

Just a short walk and you are into the centre of Ambleside with some amazing restaurants - Luigi's was very tasty and the Thai very spicy...

Ethna is a wonderful host and Nick was very helpful with providing some IT support - all in all magnificent hosts for a very romantic weekend and I couldn't ask for more other than maybe a bit later breakfast... but then again you do make the most of the day!

We will definitely go back again without hesitation...

stay at Barnes Fell!
Where to start - well how about the warmth of the welcome, the excellent breakfast, the fabulous rooms, the value for money, the location.....
Beautifully presented rooms, "all mod cons", and a great host in Ethna "the landlady".
3 brilliant nights in Ambleside made even more special by choosing Barnes Fell.

Try it yourself - you won't regret it. However, don't think you'll get past the front door in your muddy boots (you know who you are......) - remember it takes work to keep a place like this tidy. If you want the "anonymity of a hotel", go elsewhere - if you want THE BEST B&B in Ambleside then go to Barnes Fell.

Just arrived home after a great 2 night stay at Barnes Fell.
Parking is on the road and as soon as we arrived Ethna came to greet us and Nick even moved his own car for us to park.
We stayed in the Wansfell overlooking the back garden. Not a huge room but very clean with bath robes and plenty of clean towels and was more than adequate for a couple of nights.
We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We went out in Ambleside on Friday night and on Saturday we went a few miles away to a wedding reception Ethna was more than happy to organise a taxi for us.
Breakfast was great too.
A lovely place and we would certainly stay again.
Thanks Ethna and Nick

This is a delightful little B+B, 3 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside in a quiet little street with amazing views of surrounding mountains. We would thoroughly recommend it and are intending to make a return visit later this year. The rooms are immaculately clean and smartly presented with crisp linen, modern furnishings, tea/coffee facilities etc. We stayed in the back room of the house (with views of a the pretty garden but sadly not the mountains). Although it was a little small, it is cheaper than the other rooms so we didn't feel at all hard done by. Breakfast was hearty and delicious! The couple who run this little guest house (it only has three rooms) are very friendly and helpful and it is a very short walk from the town centre. A thoroughly pleasant stay!
