I’m not sure how many reviews you can leave on the same place but this is our automatic ‘go to’ when we visit Ambleside. A bit late leaving this review due to just being busy.
Another lovely stay at the Smallwood and Christine & Anthony were the perfect hosts as ever.
Fab & filling breakfasts cooked to order ( Mrs offline really enjoyed her ‘can you burn the bacon please’) and the selection of cereals, fruits, yogurts etc followed by a ‘full English’ with optional variations just sets you up for the day and puts a smile on your face.
As mentioned by others, the car park at the back is a wonderful bonus as most other places don’t have this facility and it can be a real pain having to park on the road as there is a time limit. If keys are left with Anthony he will move the cars around with expert precision to accommodate both arrivals & leavers – it’s an art :)
Another great stay with Smallwood but would advise to book directly with them as opposed to booking sites as there is no price difference & a direct relationship is made which I think really helps.
Looking forward to going back soon to unwind & relax ….always a pleasure.
