“Perfect few days (apart from weather!)”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

We stayed at Compston House recently for a 4 night break - our second visit.
Sue & Jerry are fantastic friendly hosts, and Sue's breakfasts would not be bettered in a top class hotel. Loads of top quality choice. None of your salty soggy supermarket bacon, this is the proper award winning quality stuff !... And the pancakes?... well, lets just say I weighed more after my 4 days then I did at the start. Delicious ! Jerry deserves mention for the way he looks after you at breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble, and I genuinely feel he would let you eat the cupboards bare if you really wanted.
I must also mention the cleanliness of the rooms. Really spot on, and an absolute credit.
If you are planning on a B&B break to the Lakes, you really will not regret staying at Compston House. We'll definitely be back !

Room Tip: New York & Maine..... Both excellent !

We had the very great pleasure to stay at Compston House for 4 nights, Sue and Jerry were excellent hosts made us feel so very welcome the room was spotlessly clean as was the entire place and the breakfast made by Sue is the best breakfast in the Northern Hemisphere!! We will be telling our friends to stay at Compston House and we will definitley be making a return visit and very much look forward to sampling the best American hospitality.

We stayed in the Texas room to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. When we arrived the welcome was very friendly and nothing seemed too much bother for Sue and Jerry. Our room was very clean and suited our needs perfectly. The highlight of our stay had to be the breakfast. Everyone should try the American breakfast- although you may need to sleep it off!

I have no reservations in recommending this wonderful B and B! If you're tempted, do it, you won't regret it! We'll definitely be back.

we had a lovely stay with Sue & Jerry, hubby saw them featured on 'The Lakes' & 'Countryfile' and really wanted to see if their breakfasts were as good as they looked. Indeed the surpassed our expectations - great cook Sue. Jerry is excellent at front of house at breakfast, but they don't make a nuisance of themselves at all. Very helpful and knowledgable and obliging. Car parking thrown in is a real bonus. We stayed in 2 rooms during our 7 night stay, we began in the Montanna room, with a 'moose' for company, then we moved to the 'Hawaiian' room. As we are fairly rotund people we did struggle with the small en-suites, but they were perfectly adequate, but no room for real fatties - so beware of staying and having too many all Americal breakfasts, unless you can walk them off with miles and miles of fell walking..... Well done Sue & Jerry and thanks again. We will see you again one day if we venture up to the lakes again.

Fantastic welcome,! Fantastic room! {Florida} Fantastic breakfast. !
What can we say that hasn't already been said. This was our second visit and the quality and service cannot be faulted. We will definitely be visiting again for Alan to get some more pancakes!!
Even the weather was kind to us.
Thanks again to Sue & Jerry for a lovely break in your B& B

We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay at Compston House - breakfast, the hosts, the accommodation, all top -notch. The car parking which comes with the room - rate is worth mentioning, as parking in Ambleside is tight and car shuffling is something that does not add to the enjoyment of ones holiday!

We will certainly be looking to stay here on our next trip.
