“Jewel in the countryside”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Only booked one night as we were going to Coniston show the next day - what a mistake, we should have stayed for much longer!! The attention to detail was superb throughout this beautifully maintained hotel. The quality, comfort, cleanliness of absolutely everything was amazing. Luxurious, thick white towels, crisp bedding, spotlessly clean shower room and beautiful breakfast room added to the perfect setting. Our hosts were welcoming and friendly, they really made us feel that they wanted us there. Breakfast was excellent and offered quite a variety, we ate slowly so that we could prolong the pleasure of looking out over the beautiful landscape. Incredible collection of interesting books available to browse, will certainly visit again but for longer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the corner room called 'helvelyn' (I think) but I'm sure that all rooms are...

Superb location, barn suite luxurious and extremely comfortable. First class breakfast with everything you could want for a family of four. 10 minutes drive from the centre of Ambleside which is a lovely town. Truly perfect hosts who made us feel welcome from the first minute til the last, we only wish we could of stayed longer. A fantastic location for touring the Lakes we will definitely be back...you must stay here if you are in the Ambleside area and want to experience a gem of a
B & B.

Room Tip: We stayed in Barn suite. Could not fault anything at this wonderful place.

Lovely B&B with stunning views. Warm and welcoming, with very comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Very tranquil, although location is a bit far out and not the easiest to find. Lake District is beautiful and definitely an escape to the country!

We had a great time Stephen and Val are just the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. They even gave us a free upgrade to the gorgeous barn suite because no one was booked in. We travel all over the world and very rarely find somewhere we would return...But this is definatley one of those places, one problem I think they are too cheap and fear we won't get in next time!

Sometimes you find somewhere where everything is just right and this was one of those times. We had three nights in the Barn suite and couldn't fault it. Stephen and Val were superb hosts in every way. The views from the property are stunning Lakeland. This a great base to explore the Lakes from and we will definately be back.

Room Tip: Barn suite for self contained privacy and space

Stayed on 15th June 2013 and cannot fault the stay. We had a double aspects room with views to die for. The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Only one mile from The Drunken Duck so very handy for a superb evening meal. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Would recommend to anyone and will be returning for another visit.

Farm B&B just a bit southwest of Ambleside, with Val Dodds and family as our hosts. Lovely little double room that overlooks the countryside...so beautiful. Oh, and sheep on the hills not far away...can even hear them bleating! :-).
This B&B is soooo far out, down windy one-lane roads where if someone is met on the road, one of you must pull over in a wide space or one must back up to one of those wide spaces so the other can pass! But it is worth it. Dinner at the Outgate Inn and all not far from Tar Hows and Beatrix Potter spots.

Room Tip: bigger rooms are available but book far ahead. We didn't.
