My girlfriend and I decided to do something different and stay in the Lakes for New Year. We chose (very last minute) to stay at Lake House and overall we were quite impressed! The place is situated just off the river, about a ten minute walk into Ambleside, with great views of Windermere. As we had booked last minute we had a backwards facing room, which we expected - but the room itself was spacious and clean. The breakfast in the morning was also very good!
The only negative I had is similar to the previous review, we felt quite processed, and not like a proper guest of a B&B. One of the staff struggled with her English and when I asked where was good to go in the evening, she didn't really know!
All in all it was a pleasant stay, with a bit more organisation on my side I'm not sure I'd stay again though.More
