I stayed here on a spontaneous trip away with my husband. We was visiting friends! Staff really helpful and attentive, breakfasts really good quality. Great location for the town and walking distance from the shops. Would stay here again if in the area, couldn't recommend enough.

Together with a group of friends, we had a wonderful stay here. All rooms were very clean, great selection for breakfast. Serving staff were efficient and friendly. The location was perfect for both our daily fell walks and our exploits in town in the evenings. Altogether a super trip.

The only thing I do cook in butter are the sauteed mushrooms which I would presume is why you had some butter...

A central B&B near the heart of Ambleside, very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed 4 nights here in August 2016, really pleased. Although the guest house is by the main road into the village it is not noisy in the evenings/night. Parking for 6 cars on site. Views of the hills/mountains from nearly all the rooms; reasonable sized rooms, very...
