One of the nicest places we have stayed. We come back time and time again. As always breakfast was gorgous, made with local produce and homesmade bread. It has a central location with parking which is a bonus.

Lovely rooms, lovely breakfast and lovely host and near to some fine places to eat and the splendours of the lake and the excellent facilities of Ambleside. We enjoyed our stay although it was all too short. Nonethe less we discovered an excellent Thai restaurant and a comfortable cinema and managed a shopping trip and a day at Blackwell.

Fantastic B&B in a great location. Couldn't fault it. Everything was perfect from the warm, friendly welcome, to the luxurious room with great views to the super breakfast. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.
