Park House Guest House
Ranked #61 of 103 Ambleside B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 October 2011

This was a last minute booking made on the spur of the moment to enable us to enjoy some Autumn sunshine in the lakes. The Park House is ideally situated in Ambleside with all the local facilities just a short walk away. The guest house overlooks the putting green with views of the hills beyond from the rooms. We booked two single rooms which are small but have everything you need - a comfortable bed, wardrobe, wash basin, tea/coffee making facilities and a TV/DVD player. The two single rooms share a bathroom which is modern but across a landing for one room and down the stairs for the other room. As we were only staying one night this did not present a problem and robes are thoughtfully provided. We received a warm welcome from the owner and there are designated car parking spaces just a couple of minutes walk away. The breakfast is cooked to order and portions are generous. Recommended!

We spent four nights with Paul and Diane at Park House. A very warm welcome was given to us when we arrived. Our room was delightful, en-suite, very clean, beautifully decorated and with a lovely view. Our breakfasts were cooked to perfection with plenty to choose from. The guidance received on where to eat was very helpful. An ideal spot for exploring the lake district either on foot or by car. Park House has a charming relaxed atmosphere and you feel at home from the moment you arrive. We would highly recommend Paul and Diane to others wanting to visit the area. It was a pleasure to stay and we would not hesitate to return there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 which had excellent views over the park and fells.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Park house early this summer. It is very clean and friendly with great breakfasts. Ideally situated to explore the Lake District.
In fact we enjoyed it so much...we went back 4 weeks later for another stay.

We stayed at the Parkhouse during our visit to the lakes. This is a great little bed and breakfast and ideally located in the centre of Ambleside with free parking and easy access to all facilities. The hosts are extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The full English breakfast is excellent and will set you up perfectly for a long days walking. We will definitely consider the Parkside on our next visit to the lakes.

This is a great B&B in the heart of the Lake District. We loved everything about it, from the warm welcome and very helpful hosts right through to the modern decor and amazing breakfasts.
This B&B is extremely clean (the bathroom was spotless) and Paul (the host) couldn't do enough for us. I have to say again that the breakfasts were very good !!

The building sits opposite a recreation area where you can play bowls, mini golf and tennis. Our room was at the front of the building so we could hear the buzz from outside which was great. There is quite a bit of traffic outside however, that didn't bother us and it dies down about 7pm so not noisy at night. There are rooms at the rear of the building though and I like the fact you can state which room you want to book on the B&B website.

Overall one of the best places we've stayed and would def go back again.

Room Tip: Use the website or speak to them on the phone - they are very helpful
