I went with my daughter. Guest house is lovely. Room was really quaint in the eaves. Very clean, great staff and fab breakfast. Only a short stroll into center of ambleside. We left the car and got an open top bus and boat ticket. Went all over from grassmere to Windermere and bowness. Excellent value. Can highly recommend.

Sarah was a fantastic host in this very comfortable B&B. Sarah is the new owner and is trying to build the reputation of Cherry Garth and she deserves to succeed.

We arrived and were met by new owners who had been there only a day!!! We felt rather sorry for them but after talking to them we knew they had great vision for the Guest House.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cherry Garth is a 19th-century traditional Lakeland house situated in Ambleside village in the heart of the Lake District. Cherry Garth is family owned and run by sisters Amy and Viv and is superbly positioned less than five minutes walk from both the centre of Ambleside and Lake Windermere. Guests benefit from a sunny south-westerly aspect with wonderful views over the surrounding Lakeland fells. We have a large private car park at the bottom of our garden, just off the main road into Ambleside. Cherry Garth is a non-smoking house which welcomes well behaved pets. We have 11 en-suite bedrooms including four-poster, deluxe and family sized rooms. All rooms have tea & coffee making facilities and flatscreen TV with built in DVD. The landscaped garden features level lawns, attractive sitting areas, an ornamental pond and a wide variety of mature flowering shrubs and bushes. The house and garden are floodlit each evening, allowing guests to take in the view and watch the sun setting whilst sitting outside enjoying a drink. ... more   less
