We stayed at Riverside after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, and can say that everything said about this fantastic Bed and Breakfast is true.
David and Brenda are so friendly and very attentive to your every need, the location is superb and the house itself is very traditional and homely, however it still manages to keep up with the times with flat screen televisions in your room, and wi fi internet access if you feel inclined to use it.
The location of the house is ideal, both for Ambleside only a 10 minute walk to the centre, and also an abundance of walks in and around the area, and It has ample parking at the front of the house so you never need to worry about finding a parking space.
Breakfast at Riverside is a real treat and comes with a choice of cereal, mixed toast including home made bread, porridge fruit etc, and thats before you have your cooked breakfast which i hasten to add is always cooked to perfection by Brenda.
But inspite of all the above its the little things that really makes Riverside stand out from other B and B's such as David and Brenda's hospitallity, the fact that no matter where you are in the house it always feels like home, the lit fire of a night in the cosy lounge, the candles around the house and the lanterns leading down the steps that are lit of a night i could go on..........But why not try it for yourselves i promise you will not regret a stay at Riverside.
