As usual we had a warm welcome from Ethna and after hearing all the news we were shown to our lovely clean and tidy room. The bed in our room was very comfortable leading to a good nights sleep after walking the fells around Ambleside. Breakfast is very good and plenty to eat making sure you are full of energy... More

As others have said, this is a lovely place to stay, most of all because of the cheerful and helpful hostess, Ethna. The room had everything we needed. The house construction out the back window wasn't a plus, but walking out the door with Ethna's instructions and finding a trail for a wonderful walk certainly was.

We love this amazing B & B. Just returned from a fantastic weekend in Ambleside made all the more special by our warm welcome by Ethna & Nick. Breakfast is delicious & the Loughrigg room is a lovely, comfortable room to stay in. We cannot recommend this place enough and would never stay anywhere else in Ambleside.
