Lovely hotel and very friendly. Room had large bed and enough room for us both. The breakfast was one of the best we have had as it is cooked fresh and as you left your order the night before there wasn't any waiting time for it. Brilliant location and are happy to help with restaurant advice. Would stay again.

We have just got back from a 3 night stay over new year and had to say how great this b&b is.

We were given a parking pass as soon as we arrived as there is limited parking near the b&b which was great. Our room was small but very clean and little details such as a bottle opener and details of local restaurants and attractions was on hand.

We ordered breakfast (a full english) each night ready for the morning. Breakfast was lovely and there was lots of choice available. Debbie was very friendly and we were made to feel comfortable during our stay.

One extra little touch which was lovely was a bottle of prossecco left in our room on New Year's Eve to enjoy before our night out! Very impressed! Would stay again!

Thank you for your review we are pleased you were impressed with the service we offer - Cambridge house is a small family run guest house built in 1873, a Victorian property in the heart of the lake district, the rooms are consistant with a property built in this period, and conform to Cumbria Tourism and visit Britain guidelines. Glad you liked the bottle of fizz - happy new year :)

Gigantic beds, nice breakfast, very clean and all the rooms are en suite.The room we had was a bit small but it was downstairs so maybe some of the other ones aren't so small. The owners are very friendly as well.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, you stayed in room 1 which is situated on the ground floor and I am surprised you felt it was small, its a good size room which has a superkingsize bed - we do have a couple of larger rooms, but also a couple of smaller :) as a small family run guest house uilt in 1873, our rooms do tend to be home from home size. Thank you again for taking the time to do the review.

Debbie and Dave....the names alone sound like music.The friendliness,hospitality and warmth they give is extraordinary.Miles away from my home in Nigeria,Africa and I never felt it.I don't even wish to leave.

With freshly prepared breakfast every morning served with the utmost courtesy and warmest smiles,your appetite just comes alive.The rooms are delicately taken care of with warmth woven into the furnishings.With Debbie giving directions and a helping hand in all matters,you can never miss your way.I had my own front door keys which meant freedom unlimited. This is definitely, home away from home.



Cambridge house is definitely the place to be,summer,spring or autumn.

Room Tip: All rooms are splendid,I had 5 other colleagues staying in and all were ecstatic about their rooms.

I do not know what to say - what a beautiful review. I had the pleasure of meeting you all from Nigeria and you stayed with us for 3 weeks, during this time you were always polite, with smiles and pleasant greetings in the morning for breakfast. There was laughter in the house all the time, you were a pleasure from start to finish. We are both delighted and quite touched by your review, we are so pleased that you stay was a memorable one. Thank you again and goodluck

To celebrate our silver wedding anniversary we booked a 2 nights stay at Cambridge House. We were given room 3, both the bedroom and en-suit bathroom were nicely decorated and spotlessly clean!! Breakfast is a must!! Fabulous, loads of choice and absolutely delicious!! Although there is no car park parking wasn't a problem as Debbie, the owner, gave us a permit the minute we arrived and we had no problems finding a space. She was very friendly and helpful. She gave us advise on near by parking, directions, good restaurants etc. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Cambridge House to anyone!! The next time we visit Windermere we will definitely stay there again!!

We spent 6 nights in this comfy B&B. We had a warm welcome, comfy beds and an excellent breakfast. We had our own front door key and could come and go as we pleased. There were details of local walks and tourist attractions in reception, and Debbie was very knowledgeable about the local area. Excellent location for nearby restaurants and shops and a stone's throw from some beautiful walks.

My twin and I are typing this as we stay here as we check out tomorrow. On arriving yesterday, the guest house owner, Debbie, helped structure our afternoon giving us maps and tips. The room was clean and fresh, and the bed was really comfy. Debbie asks you to order your cooked breakfast for the morning after which is a great idea and stops waste and ensures freshness. Our only very minor grumble would be the shower temperature being a bit inconsistent but, that having been said, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly.
