Just returned from our annual stay and Riverside and did not want to leave! After the lovely welcome, Dave and Brenda always have time for an update and chat. They let you know about any new restaurants in Ambleside and about your room which they always show you to. The rooms are beautifully appointed and you have the best nights sleep with a body form mattress on the bed. The breakfast is superb with all locally sourced high quality ingredients and home made bread. I can thoroughly recommend the Muesli fruit pot!

Can't wait to return again for our next break.

A beautiful B&B within the heart of Ambleside. The warm and friendly welcome received from Dave and Brenda made us feel immediately at home and Brenda's breakfast was to die for!
The attention to detail was excellent: sweets to nibble on, candles for relaxation, maps and guides galore. The beds were exceptionally comfortable; just what is needed after a long walk.
Will defiantly return. Big thank you to you both!

Booked the riverside after reviewing all the excellent reports on trip advisor.
We weren't disappointed.
The location is excellent. Only minutes from Ambleside and Waterhead on lake Windermere.
The owners Dave and Brenda couldn't be more welcoming.
The hotel is lovely and with Dave and Brenda's hospitality and local knowledge this is a must to stay when visiting the Ambleside area.
We will definitely visit again when I'm more able to enjoy the local walks.

This is the best hotel experience I have ever had.
Brenda and Dave are wonderful hosts and there isn't a detail they don't consider on your stay. It is the extra things they do that make it so special. Firstly the rooms are beautiful and the B&B is well situated for Ambleside being a 5 minute walk through a park.
There is everything on offer at breakfast and be sure to try Brenda's home made bread as that is delicious.
The extra touches are:
Folder with local menus
Reviews from previous guests
Local natural washing products available in the room
All local attraction information
All local walk maps available to borrow
Beautiful communal living room with real wood burning fire

If your reading this just book and you will be so happy you did.

A wonderful stay at the lovely Riverside. Beautiful location just across the park from Ambleside. Great room (number 6) overlooking the river, no bath but great shower. Fabulous hosts, Brenda and Dave with loads of helpful tips and local knowledge. Delicious breakfasts with home made breads. We could happily have stayed for longer if work would have allowed.
