Reviewed 4 July 2014

A perfect choice. Thank you to Les and Sue for your impeccable rooms, food and service.
Our friends from Florida were suitably impressed.
A beautiful setting with views to die for. Give it a try - you wont be disappointed.

Very happy with our choice of B&B. Great value for money. Exactly as advertised, very clean and excellent breakfast choices. Off road parking very useful. Set in a lovely location. Ideal base for a spot of hiking.

Myself and my girlfriend have just returned from the delightful villiage of troutbeck, nestled between windermere and ambleside, we wanted a sanctuary to recover from our busy lives and were not dissapointed. High fold guest house & B&B was unreservedly the best guest house we have stayed in. the pictures on the website do not do the place any justice as it was amazing! the location is so quiet, but close enough for anyone to easily travel to nearby ambleside.
there is a fantastic pub that does amazing food and locally produced ales at affordable prices, and to add welcomes outsiders as their own.
The guest house owner had covered everything, the breakfast menu had plenty of choice from the usual full english to mackeral, a selection of fruit, cereal, toast etc..
we were advised and guided on which walks were available in the area, offered packed lunch and maps!
if you are of the type to still like a good read or game of cluedo or monopoly these were also available in the dining room.
All in all it was like a home from home.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear of the property are a must!! but to be fair the location is a cut above

We stayed at High Fold for 2 nights. It was excellent, the best guest house we've ever stayed in. Attention to detail was second to none and the breakfast was outstanding. I can see why they have an award. Thank you for a fab stay.

My wife and I have visited high fold guest house half a dozen times over the last 3 or 4 years. Every time les and Susan make us very welcome but without being intrusive

This time we stayed in applethwaite room with great views of the valley. The room is large with a super king bed, was immaculately clean in both the bedroom and the ensuite. The TV had satellite if you wanted it - we watched a couple of DVDs.

There's a good selection of teas and coffee in the room. Actually they've thought of pretty much everything - a couple of examples - torches by the door if you want to go for a late night walk and a daily weather report

Breakfast is always amazing - a great choice of options - wide selection of fruits, yogurts, cereals, or English breakfast with local eggs, sausage etc - one of our favourite breakfasts irrespective of b&b or 5* hotel.

Trout beck is a 5 minute drive from Ambleside which has a good selection of restaurants, and it's very peaceful and tranquil. All in all a great place to relax.

Room Tip: Applethwaite room has the best views

We stayed at High Fold for three nights, in the Applethwaite room, and were very pleased with the accommodation. Having been on the road for three weeks, making liberal use of our English Heritage and National Trust memberships, High Fold was an excellent place to recharge our batteries. Our room extended across the house, giving us magnificent views to the peaks on the other side of the Troutbeck valley and to the beautiful court in which High Fold is situated. The room was beautifully furnished with a lovely large bed, a make-up table which I used as a desk, plenty of spots for our luggage and a couch and coffee table. The telly was very large, with sky on it too.

Our breakfasts were very good, with different selections of fruit each day and an intriguing battle for control of the bird feeder for daily entertainment. Troutbeck itself is a delightful village, and we enjoyed our stroll up to The Mortal Man for dinner one evening. It's also pretty close to Windemere, which was great for us.

Thanks for a great stay at High Folds - you were just what we needed to prepare for the final leg of our trip.

Room Tip: Ours was Applethwaite

This is the fifth time we have stayed at High Fold and each visit is just as special as the previous visit. You will not get a better breakfast or view from the dining room, the rooms are of the highest standard together with a very warm welcome from Sue and Les. Their knowledge of the lake district is as good as any printed literature and you leave at the end of your stay knowing that you will return at a future date.
