Having just returned (22-24.06.14) from a wonderful stay at Brantfell House I cannot reccommend this B&B highly enough. Jane & Chris were absolutely wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble & very informative. Our room (no.6) was at the very top of the house (so not for those with mobility issues) with views over the community gardens. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the towels were very fluffy!! No bath with this room but the shower was fabulous. The room had a seperate living area and a very well stock hospitality tray and we were instructed to 'just ask' if we wanted any more. Ideally situated, only a few strides to the centre of Ambleside. Parking was a little limited, as it is in all of Ambleside, but there is a 'zone/disk' parking available. Breakfast was plentiful, even the 'very particular' would have no complaints & the lady who waits on at breakfast was so attentive. A fabulous B&B.

This was our second year at Brantfell House and once again it was fabulous. Chris and Jane are wonderful 'hosts' and Brantfell is a wonderful place. The rooms are spotless, decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard and with exceptionally comfortable beds. Breakfast is amazing - excellent service and choice and wonderful food cooked and presented to perfection. Brantfell is located opposite the mini-golf, about 3 minutes walk into the main centre of Ambleside. There is parking for two vehicles as well as on-street parking and parking permits for the local carpark about 1 minute away. We could not speak highly enough of Brantfell and would recommend it to anyone wanting quality and friendly accommodation in the heart of Ambleside.

An exceptionally pleasant return visit to this superb B&B. I have stayed here on a number of occasions and can't fault the overall value for money. Very clean rooms, amazing breakfast and run by a lovely couple. Very good location in Ambleside. I would stay here more often but it is often fully booked because once you have stayed here you will undoubtedly return! Thanks Jane & Chris - lovely to see you both again.

We chose this B & B off the web and will be returning as soon as possible! We paid extra for a larger room - essential in our opinion because of the lovely room and super view. Everywhere was spotless and looked newly refreshed. Breakfast was excellent - you could choose anything from a long menu and it was freshly cooked. A super stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a larger room.

Just returned from staying 2 nights at Brantfell House. We were made extremely welcome, the accommodation is lovely, modern and exceptionally clean. Breakfasts are well cooked and ample. The location is excellent and parking is available. Don't need to think about booking, just BOOK, you won't be disappointed.

Enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay at Brantfell House, we had to slightly change the days of our stay last minute due to work commitments but this was not a problem, Chris and Jane were great, nothing was too much trouble. The location was spot on and the breakfast was fantastic. As someone who isn't overly keen on meat I can say the sausages were the best I have ever tasted! I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast and I will undoubtably be going back for another visit.
