“Ideal for Stampers”
Reviewed November 18, 2007

Husband and myself stayed here for one night to use as a base for eating at Stampers restaurant (brilliant place) 5 minutes away.

We were given a room on the top floor on the road side, this did'nt pose a problem as with being quite high up we could'nt hear much traffic.

On first impressions the room was quite old fashioned and in need of updating, the mattress could do with replacing as it sunk on my side.
The shower cubicle was rather tiny.


The owners are very freindly and the breakfast was really good.
It was an ideal location for visiting Stampers.

Its was easy to find and has private parking. Views from the back are great. From the front its the noisy traffic. We booked 2 rooms a twin in the front that was very good. Lovely soft creams with a hint of brown, tea/coffee and tv and private shower room. This one had been recently done. The double in the back with great views, needs some work doing as the shower room was a tight fit, and needs redecoration as looks tired and needed the furniture re-organising as when you opened the ensuite door it hit the bed. But on the good side the owners where friendly and breakfast was excellent. No family rooms so not suitable for small children as they would be in their own rooms.

Went for a weekend to Ambleside at the end of March and stayed at Ferndale Lodge. I found the accomodation very clean and excellent value for money. It was in a perfect location as it was about 1 minutes walk to amenities in the town centre but still on the edge so very little noise disturbance, but you are on a main road. Would definately stay at this B & B again.

Ferndale Lodge at Ambleside is excellent value for money. Very clean. Breakfast is cooked to your preferance, and is very yummy. The couple running the place are very friendly at all times. The only downside is that there are carpet in the bathrooms, but it isn't disgusting, it's just that I don't like carpet in bathrooms.. I definately would recommend to stay here.
