We had an amazing two night stay here in the cozy montana room, the owners sue and jerry were so friendly and welcoming and will help you out with anything you need. The breakfast is fantastic with so much choice there is something for everyone and it fills you up for all day. Me and my partner will definitely be back again to see sue and jerry it was an absolute pleasure and I would recommend it to anyone.

Our stay with Sue & Jerry was a marvelous experience. Their hospitality is second to none, offered with great humour.. All the breakfast options were delicious. They were very helpful with local information, eating out in the evenings and offering discounts for some local restaurants.A truly unique and special break, recommended!

We have stayed at the Compston many times over 6 years. Sue and Jerry make us very welcome every time we stay. Last year we visited the Compston on 4 occasions. Its very well located near to the centre of Ambleside with good restaurants within a very short walk. Breakfast is excellent with a good variety of cereals, and a filling, cooked breakfast. The rooms are clean and welcoming. My wife and I enjoy the Lake District so much and we like to think of the Compston as our second home in the Lakes. Thanks Sue and Jerry for looking after us so well over the years we have stayed with you.

Room Tip: Hawaii and Florida are our favourite rooms

The room was clean and spacious with very comfortable bed. Great location to explore Ambleside on foot and access to transport for further afield. Advice on places to eat couldn't have been better and local restaurants are great and lots of choice but The Glass House really stood out. The welcome and atmosphere throughout stay was friendly and the best thing full stop was the epic breakfast, just awesome and worth staying just to have it again. For value and quality will be hard to beat.

We usually stay in Florida, sometimes Hawaii, but the weather was so good this last weekend we booked a bit later than normal and were happy to take any room - as long as it was in Compston House! We don't worry about that because we know that all the rooms are immaculate, all the beds are amazingly comfortable and, of course, Sue and Jerry are the perfect hosts. We always enjoy the Lakes, love Ambleside and Compston House is our home from home - but when the weather is as good as it was last weekend, well, who needs to go abroad!!!

Best Lake District B&B we have stayed in. Great hosts, huge good quality breakfasts, decent rooms, lovely bright breakfast room and sitting room, everything in good nick. We stayed in the Texas room at the top - good size, compact bathroom, virtually no traffic noise despite the central location and having the window open in the summer heat. You get free parking permits for the town car parks and others in the area, and 10% off at the Doi Instanon Thai restaurant (one of the best places in town). Very good value. Will definitely go back next time in Ambleside.
