“First stay but definitely not the last”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Excellent B&B with spotless room, very good breakfast and welcoming hosts. We stayed for two nights recently in the small double room which is big enough for a couple of days, don't let it put you off if only the small double is available. There was enough wardrobe space and a well thought out en-suite making the most of the space available. The breakfast was well cooked and a good choice, the fresh fruit salad was my favourite with plenty of fresh strawberries, blueberries etc. Fresh milk for the tea/coffee in the room was a nice touch, as was the range of tea/coffee available in the room. We enjoyed chatting to Richard and Judy who obviously enjoy running the B&B as much as people enjoy staying there. Will definitely return when we are next in Keswick

Thankyou very much for your comments regarding your recent stay here at Amble House. We're pleased you found everything to your liking, including our small double. Regular guests enjoy staying in the small room and as you said it has everything you could need for a couple of nights stay. We do have much larger rooms of course but when you booked that was the only one available so we are glad you enjoyed yourselves! It will be great to see you both again when you next decide to visit Keswick. Thanks again for your feedback.

We love Keswick & we love staying at Amble House been lots of times over last six years wouldn't stay anywhere else. Judy & Richard are perfect hosts nothing is too much trouble the rooms are very well equipped & spotless with lots of nice little touches like chocs on the pillows & biscuits on the tea tray also toiletries in the bathroom not to mention the big white fluffy towels. whatever you like for breakfast you'll find it here all delicious i love judy's home made granola, jam & marmalade. if full english is your thing i dare you to have the lot it's huge all well cooked & fresh local produce where possible. The location we think is just right a short walk into town so not noisy when you sleep. There isn't anything i don't like about Amble House it's perfect for a stay in the lake district we'll certainly be back.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 &3 are larger so bit more space

Hello Selby!! Thankyou so much for writing this review and saying such lovely things!! It is always such a pleasure to see you both knowing that you feel at home and enjoy everything we have to offer. Is it really six years you've been coming to Keswick and staying here? We know you love the town and area and always enjoy your days of walking - reasonable weather this time too! Look forward to seeing you both again soon.

Excellent hosts, excellent room and excellent food.Great touch with the fresh milk brought to the room.
We had a great couple of nights, slept great, very quiet.
Plenty of parking on the street outside.

Have just returned from a weeks stay at Amble House. Everything went brilliantly smoothly; good communication prior to visit, warm welcome, spotless and tastefully decorated room with complementary tea, coffee, biscuits and sweets, delicious breakfasts with an incredible range of food on offer, and flexibility to come and go whenever convenient. The hosts were happy to go out of their way to help and effort had clearly been made to ensure food and drink were locally produced or fair trade where possible. The room and ensuite were cosy, but this was in part due to the set up of twin beds in what is usually a double room, and there was plenty of storage space. Apart from this, difficult to criticise and would certainly return.

Sorry for delay in writing review but as we talked about I've been away on business. Just wanted to thank you both for your wonderful hospitality dureing our recent stay. I'm still missing the breakfasts. Rooms although on the smaller side of what i'm used to are extremely well equiped, and would have no hesitation in recommending amble house ot anyone and not surprised you get so many repeat visitors. Hope to return sometime soon, thanks again

We have just returned from a lovely weekend at Amble House. The accommodation is spotless, the rooms are gorgeous, everything you want is provided (a great selection of teas and coffees in the room and the widest selection of Fairtrade products I have seen, a brochure with all you need to know about Keswick and its attractions) and the breakfast selection was divine. We needed to stay longer to make sure we tried everything. Richard and Judy were the perfect hosts, so friendly and attentive we felt like we were staying with friends. We will definitely return.

Stayed here for 3 nights in May. Richard and Judy offer a fantastic welcome. Great accomodation and breakfast is fab. There is so many choices you have to find many things to wet your appetite for eating.Rooms are spotless and are serviced everyday. Nothing is any trouble for Richard & Judy. Stay anywhere else in Keswick you will have missed out.
