Parking to the rear of the property. We were made to feel very welcome and the breakfasts were lovely. Only 2-3 minute...

Stayed at the Ambleside soon after Christmas for a RSC restaurant and theatre visit. Had had a horrendous drive to Stratford from London as everyone in the world seemed to be returning from Christmas visits! However, all stresses were alleviated within minutes of receiving Peter's warm and friendly welcome, and being shown to our scrupulously clean, warm and cozy room...

As usual Ruth and Peter were very welcoming and the decor was pristine, as were the bedrooms. the Breakfast...

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we were unable to stay on our chosen date. Nevertheless I would like to express my gratitude towards the owners of Ambleside for their patience, understanding and kindness over the past few weeks concerning the unfortunate events that conspired against us. They were also able to resell our room,at extremely short notice, so...

The breakfast dining room was especially pretty set in the bay window facing the street. The plantings the dooryard were neat and pretty, pansies, I think. Parking behind the house was a tight squeeze, but we were able to walk almost everywhere, including to the theatre. Hosts were very professional in their services.

Comfortable spacious room, quiet and cozy. Lots of breakfast options, all delicious. The owners took extra effort to provide information about available tours and good restaurants in the area. Great location - easy walk into town and to Holy Trinity which has a lovely Evensong service. As a solo traveler, I felt well cared for and so appreciated all the...
