Came in Easter and just had to come again. My boyfriend has been with family many times over the years and now we come together. Such cosy and beautiful rooms, beds are comfy and bathrooms are pristine. Breakfasts are top notch and would definitely recommend buying some of the homemade marmalade and jams. Lovely owners too.

We booked having read all the 5* reviews so had high expectations. But it was even better. The breakfasts were superb all freshly prepared with local or homemade produce great portion sizes not overwhelming and plenty of choice. Considering they are all freshly prepared the presentation is amazing too. Packed lunches a range of sizes and plenty of choice again...

We have stayed with Paul & Vicky many times during the 3 years my son has been at university in Ambleside. The standard of the rooms is very high, service is friendly and welcoming and breakfast delicious. We love their commitment to local produce. Very highly recommended - book early and book direct!
