I booked a short break for my parents and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay. From when they arrived until they left, everything was perfect. Reg and Gwen are great hosts and their hospitality is very welcoming. As it was my Mums birthday, she was pleasantly surprised with a card and chocolates in her room. This was a lovely touch and...

Breakfasts to suit every taste and plenty of choice. Definitely set us up for a days walking in the locality. This is home from home accommodation...

We are just back from a perfect stay with perfect weather. Gwen and Reg as always the perfect hosts. We think it would be hard to beat the Amboseli Lodge with its great location etc. and as previously mentioned great hosts. The rooms are always spotless and everything in them you could ask for.

We stayed in in Wansfell, room at the back (they have 3) , it was quiet and had everything you could need. We were very well looked after and breakfasts were fab. It's a great location in the centre of Ambleside, with parking and even if you're staying at the front the road's pretty quiet at night. I'd happily go...

Gwen & Reg were wonderful hosts. The room was lovely, had a super comfy bed, and was always nice and warm when we returned from our long walks. Breakfast was perfect, it set us up nicely every day. The location could not have been better; it was literally a few minutes walk to some great pubs and restaurants. We stayed...

Just returned from another amazing stay with the fabulous Gwen & Reg. Breakfast was gorgeous as always. The little Christmas decorations in our room was a lovely touch and the chocolates left daily where a nice little treat after a nice walk. Can't wait for our next stay in March.
