Reviewed 1 November 2012

Another very enjoyable stay here in room with lovely views. Bedroom and en suite are immaculate, hosts are attentive, personal parking space is useful. The location is perfect for social / shopping activities and fell walking. Good breakfast. Recommended.

Had a lovely 4 night stay here and can't fault it at all. Everywhere is immaculate and the hosts are attentive. Breakfast is fab and fills you up for the forth coming day.. Definitely recommend and hope to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 2 which is first floor room over looking the pitch and putt course. As well...

Nice house, spotlessly clean. Modern bathroom. Great breakfast and great service. Bonus to have a parking space on the other side of the park in view of the house. Great location in Ambleside. Recommended.

The Park House is conveniently located near the centre of Ambleside and has a very pleasant outlook adjacent to the putting and bowling greens and has a fabulous view of the nearby fell at the north end of Lake Windermere. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorared. The breakfast room is nice and light and has a very good selection on the menu to choose from which is freshly cooked, nicely presented and sets you up for the day. The proprietors, Paul and Dianne Brooks, were very welcoming, attentive to our needs and willingly provided information of the local area and its facilities. I would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B or returning to it in the future

Room Tip: Front rooms have the best views but there is some traffic noise

I stayed here for four nights 31 July-03 August 2012. This is without doubt one of the best B & B's i have stayed in over the Lake District.

My room was immaculate and so cosy. I have never been looked after so well in a B & B. I was a solo guest, but did not feel I was on my own at anytime, this was due to Paul and Diane being lovely attentitive hosts.

Thank you for a lovely stay-small is beautiful, can't wait to return.

In July 2012 my husband and I stayed near Ambleside on the Friday night with plans to return home on the Saturday. Due to unusually pleasant weather for this summer we decided to stay another night at the last minute and were warmly welcomed by Paul into the Park House.

The rooms are spotlessly clean with plenty of storage space. We didn't notice any noise from the road below us and had a wonderful view overlooking the park. Park House is in a great location for easy access to the shops and restaurants, and we had a lovely meal at a nearby Italian recommended by Paul. (I can't remember the name but it is near the Green Apple cafe, fantastic Italian wines.)

Breakfast the following morning was perfectly cooked.

All in all a lovely place to stay, clean friendly and with a warm welcome.

Room Tip: The views from the fron rooms are the best and worth the extra £4 or £5 extra. But they do over look...
