Having decided to visit the Lakes for an impromptu walking trip, we trawled the internet and came up with the Churchill at £70 for B&B in a double room, which certainly undercut local rivals. This is no cosy country inn, but a town centre pub focusing on TV sport, with about 16 guest rooms. On the plus side, everything in Ambleside is in easy walking distance, some free parking is available (although it's accessed via a VERY narrow alley, so leave the Hummer at home...) and breakfast was decent enough. Our room was reasonably spacious and comfortable, with TV, tea/coffee making kit and a fair-sized ensuite. Be advised though, that there's no lift, and it can feel like a good yomp up to the top floor after a day's fellwalking! In summary, the Churchill offers good basic and handily located accommodation at a reasonable price, and needs to be viewed in that light.
