Had a wonderful 2 day stay at Claremont House. Dave and Angie were fabulous hosts, extremely welcoming and friendly. Our room was lovely, exceptionally clean and spacious. Breakfast was superb and set us up for the whole day. The location is excellent and we will be most certainly be returning as this is a great bed and breakfast.

My girlfriend and I were extremely impressed with Claremont House. The location is central, our room was fantastic - clean, spacious with big windows - and the breakfasts were perfect fuel for long days walking. One of the advantages of staying at B&B's is picking up local knowledge from the owner(s) and Dave was quite a character with loads of... More

Just stayed here with our two children for a couple of nights. It was superb, the property is immaculate. Beautiful bathroom with great shower. The breakfast ingredients are of a very high standard and cooked beautifully. Angela and Dave are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We will definitely be returning.

Our son & his partner have stayed here several times & took us here as a birthday present. Claremont House was as perfect as a B&B could be and Ambleside was fun, even in the rain. The other reviews say it all. Thanks Dave & Angie.
