WELCOME TO THE FISHERBECK. When you are away from home you want to be comfortable, so why not relax on our luxury leather sofas, enjoy a glass of wine, cool beer, cappuccino or latte, perhaps with a little something from our light bite menu. And then sleep easy in one of our individually designed bedrooms, some with fantastic views, balcony, spa bath or king size bed.If you are looking for a truly hearty well cooked breakfast, for several years we have been the recipients of the Good Breakfast Award. We make our own muesli, granola, breakfast muffins and rum butter. Eggs are collected direct from the farm for absolute freshness. Award winning bacon, sausage and black pudding are sourced locally and our smoked haddock and salmon are some of the finest in the north of England, all cooked for you personally. If you want to be well located with really great views of Loughrigg Fell and onwards to the Langdale Pikes, an easy stroll to shops, restaurants and the lake, we really are perfectly located in Ambleside right in the heart of The Lake District. Our 18 bedrooms are all en-suite and three feature balconies overlooking magnificent Lakeland views opposite. Supremely comfortable, the rooms are equipped with all the facilities you need for a luxurious stay in the heart of this most beautiful area. Our sheltered garden provides a tranquill place to relax and admire the glorious panoramic view of the Langdale Pikes, Wansfell and Loughrigg Fell.

My second visit to The Fisherbeck and the lovely single room 21, which boasts a wonderful bathroom, is very quiet and cosy, is well appointed, and is a little gem! The bath is such a luxury for a single room and was very welcome at the end of a full day's walking. The

We just love our visits to Ambleside and this week's break has been the best. We've stayed in many Hotels and B&Bs over the years but The Fisherbeck is now our favourite. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. The rooms are airy and comfortable. A new feature we noticed this visit is

Dear Eddie T, Thank you very much indeed for taking the time your very complimentary and comprehensive review of your stay with us here at The Fisherbeck. I was particularly thankful for the mention you gave to our wonderful staff. We could not provide the levels of cleanliness, service & hospitality without them. A copy of this review is already hanging in their changing room for them to read. And we are indeed most fortunate to have a great location just about equidistant between the lake in one direction and the majority of shops and restaurants in the other, and either being about an 8 or 9 minute stroll. Thank you again and we do hope we will be able to welcome you back to The Fisherbeck in the not too distant future. It would be our pleasure. Kind regards. Gillian Lane
