Reviewed July 13, 2012

A brief stay in July on a walking break in Langdale. Comfortable and friendly accomodation for myself and two friends, we had an enjoyable time. Good breakfasts and a particualry good large room at the front of the house with parking at the rear, would stay again. Thanks to Sue for her welcoming style.

Room Tip: Double and a single on the 1st floor facing Church Street, a pleasant and relaxing room.

What first struck me on entering Sue's B&B was the character - period charm with original features and so clean that in street speech it would be described as 'blinging'. Very comfortable bed with laundered white cotton sheets top and bottom, white cotton duvet and white cotton throw (I have a thing for cotton!). Very good complimentary toiletries and generous selection of hot drink sachets. Fantastic hearty breakfast cooked to perfection with minimum fat. Sue even sorted out an emergency hospital appointment for my husband with no fuss whatsoever. What's not to rave about ... totally deserving of a 5-star rating!!!!!

Room Tip: We had a room at the front which wasn't a problem with noise at all.

I was in the lakes working and hadn't booked anywhere to stay so called at this place ''on spec'', Sue the lovely owner managed to fit me in and what a little gem this place turned out to be. My room was SPOTLESSLY clean, warm and i slept very sound that night. The full english breakfast was perfectly cooked and plentiful and served with a smile by Sue's staff. I would recommened this lovely B&B to anybody, very well positioned in ambleside too, (well it's near the pubs!) Thanks again Cambridge Villas, i WILL return.

The room was very clean and comfortable, with many little "extras" that some larger B&B's do not even think to provide. Although near to a road there was no noise or disturbance. Sue was most helpful and made us feel "at home" and very welcome, as did Ray when we met up with him. The breakfast was excellent and again, more than is sometimes offered in larger B&B's. The postion is great beng near to the town centre and to the bus sation and only a short walk to Waterhead and the Ambleside Pier to catch the ferry. We would certainly stay here again

Lovely friendly place. We chose it after trawling through any number of hotels in the Lake District and it was the best choice we could have made. Just minutes from the bus station where we hopped on to buses that took us to Grasmere, or to the Beatrix Potter house, it was ideally located. In the evening we just had to walk up the road to be spoilt for choice for pubs and places to eat as well as a huge number of adorable shops.
The English breakfast was so sumptuous that we dug in, despite being health fanatics. I can still see the fresh yellow rose on the table in front of me.
So welcoming - the doors were always open with Sue pottering about amongst her beloved flowers.
I hope I can go back next year for an equally relaxing few days.
