Lovely relaxing stay here, made all the more perfect by Sheila making us feel so comfortable in this beautiful place. Lemon drizzle cake & cup of tea to welcome us was delicious & most welcome. All rooms are beautiful designed & the bedroom is perfect with en suite . Bed & the pillows are so comfy. Milk is supplied & a tasty shortbread biscuit. Sheila is absolutely the perfect hostess who does everything to a high standard to make the stay so relaxing. We chilled our wine & beer in the landing fridge to chill in the evening after a long busy day, & relaxed in the beautiful lounge, where the candles had been lit & made cozy. Breakfast selection & the whole dining experience in the beautifully laid out room was a delight. The sausages, bacon & eggs were amazingly tasty. This review probably sounds really gushing but can’t really explain how beautiful the whole stay was & how it added to making first time in Ambleside SO wonderful Highly recommend to anyone & will be returning with family for sure

Sheila and Chris were very welcoming and enthusiastic about their lovely, peaceful corner of the Lakes. The accommodation at the farm was very clean and comfortable and Sheila's breakfasts were superb. Afternoon cake was available every day and was extremely welcomed! Sheila's helpfulness and permanent cheerfulness was inspiring and our party of four could find no fault whatsoever in this our choice for a restful five night stay. Her insight into the local area was one of many attributes that makes Sheila a wonderful hostess.

So the owner commented very well via email. We arrived late and was given clear polite instuction on which room and greeted with tea/coffe/sherry. The room was clean and tidy very homely and had all the condiments, shampoo/ ect Fantastic view from window. Breakfast was lovely, lots of choices including full english, special /eggs Benedict, cereal, yogurts and fruits .. all fresh , including tea, coffe and juices . The lady who run it was very welcoming and very accommodating. The only slight criticism was it was a little hot in morning, radiators were on, supose its ace when its cold... We had a fantastic say and would highly recommend high wray farm for a short break with lots of views and walks ...

At the risk of repeating the many superlatives of others, we were back for the umpteenth time in 20 years, and Sheila's superb welcome, attention and standards were as high as they have always been. A very cosy home-from-home 😊

I was unable to visit due to illness however, my sister Sheila still went and I am writing this based on her visit. The host, Sheila was very welcoming and warm and couldn't do enough to ensure my sister's visit was memorable. The facilities were comfy and breakfast fulfilling, which set her up for the day's walking. Sheila (owner) went as far as driving Sheila to the train station on her departure. All in all, she cannot recommend this enough and will definitely make a return visit.
