Riverside is everything you would want from a great b&b and far more. The location is perfect, just a 5 minute stroll to Ambleside and set in a peaceful spot just opposite the river. Brenda and Dave are perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble and you feel like you are staying with friends. Breakfasts are excellent, with a fantastic choice of healthy fresh fruit salads, smoothies and delicious home-made bread or locally produced bacon and sausages for the full English. The rooms are spotlessly clean and stocked with lakes produced, environmentally friendly toiletries. We've been coming for over 10 years and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.
