Excellent, very kind and friendly hosts with a first class breakfast in the centre of Ambleside. Perfect! Nice, large and quiet spacious rooms (we stayed in a Family Room - lots of space for 4 people). We will return again. Thank you

Wonderful short break
Amazing| We had a really nice room. Breakfast was wonderful, with a very good choice of cereals, fruit etc. Excellently situated in the centre of Ambleside for shopping and exploring the area. The only drawback was the parking, which was approx 5 minutes walk away. Fortunately, we were given a parking permit which allowed us to park for free for our entire stay, otherwise it would have cost £5 per day.

Heart of the town, all you need on the doorstep!
Very helpful, friendly hosts. Immaculate room and lovely little bathroom all to myself! Only slight downer, property is situated on the main thoroughfare through the town, but the plus being all facilities are on your doorstep :-)
