Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2011

My husband and I stayed at Compston House for 4 nights to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. A very warm welcome was given by Sue and Jerry,the room [Hawaiin themed] was comfortable,clean and had everything we needed in it.
The breakfast was brilliant,you could have as little or as much as you wanted,the quality of which was second to none.
When we visit the Lakes again Compston House is where we will stay,in Jerry's words,"No problem". Lynn and Richard Gooderham.Norwich.

MY Wife and I have just returned from another fantastic 2 nights at Compston house,this time we took my Mother and Father who both really enjoyed their stay,I don't think you could fault anything about this place the rooms are clean,well equipped and comfortable,it is ideally located for exploring Ambleside and the Lake district and as everbody comments Sue's breakfasts are out of this world.
We will certainly be back as soon as we can and maybe for a few more nights as its simply the best B&B
Thank you Sue and Jerry for anther fantastic stay at your wonderful B&B,you really are the perfect hosts and Compston house the perfect B&B.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Compston House. The room was spotlessly clean, everything we could have needed was provided in the room, and the bed was very comfortable. The dining room was a very pleasant place to sit and eat a relaxing breakfast. The breakfasts were excellent, there was so much choice it was difficult to decide, everything was very well presented and top quality.We will certainly be back to try more of the breakfast menu. Thank you to Sue and Gerry for making us so very welcome.

We loved staying at your B&B in Ambleside, and appreciated your kindness and great hospitality. Your breakfasts are the best.

We have just returned from another fantastic stay at Compston House. We just couldn't bring ourselves to book anywhere else in the Lake District as we would never find a B&B which would ever compare, and would never find hosts as welcoming and friendly as Sue and Jerry. We stayed in the Hawaii room; it was bright, spacious, airy and very comfortable. As everyone else comments here, we especially looked forward to sampling the breakfasts again (especially the pancakes and maple syrup)! We even got to try Sue's blueberry muffins as we were still resident on the Sunday morning. This was a totally relaxing break in lovely accommodation, with gorgeous breakfasts to boot! If you are looking for excellent accommodation in the Lakes at great value, then look no further - this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Our whole expeience revolves around the word 'Perfect'

Food was excellent, well prepared, cooked to perfection and a great choice....We have put on 7lbs in four days.

We had the Florida room and it felt like we were in a sunny Florida....lots of tea, coffeee milk, sweets and biscuits.

Sue & Gerry were attentive without being intrusive, Gerry has a great sense of humour and they provide a first class service naturally. Nothing was too much trouble.

Definitely worth another few visits
