Highfield Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #95 of 102 Ambleside B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 April 2011

What a fantastic B& B , perfect location 200yards from town center, off road parking , filling breakfast that hits the spot along with all its trimmings, spotlessly clean and Carole and Norman made us feel very welcome and were excellent hosts. I,ll definitely be booking with them in the future. Carole also offers special rates and deals throughout the year. Look no further!

I have stayed at Highfield with my boyf several times now and would highly recommend.
It's a traditional b&b a minute's walk away from the chocolate-box town centre.

A big plus with this b&b is the off-road parking. Another - very important - plus is the quality of the breakfasts. Lots of choice, from fresh fruit and yoghurts to poached eggs, and of course the full English. And you get a nice pot of coffee (or tea) to wash it all down. They even asked us how strong we like our coffee and of course it came piping hot and to our liking.

We always pick the same room and it's always nipping clean, with a lovely view over Todd Crag. The bed is massive - perfect for flopping onto after a day up Helvellyn or wherever you get to!

The service from Carole and Norman is first-class. They really look after us each time we go and we've discovered some lovely walks thanks to their recommendations. They suggest walks for rainy days (handy, as it always rains when we're there!) and know the best places in town to eat (Zefferelis is top-notch too).

One point I would make is this: Highfield isn't a b&b pretending to be a hotel. The rooms aren't swanky or decorated in the latest Dulux hues; they are clean, comfortable rooms in a traditional Lakeland property. So if you like modern fixtures and fittings, this perhaps isn't going to be the b&b for you. But if it's comfort, good food, good parking and excellent service you're after, I would recommend 100%.
