We stayed at the Compston House B&B for 4 nights in July 2013. Sue and Jerry were incredibly friendly and accomodating from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble and they were the perfect hosts. We stayed in the Maine room, which was large and very clean. It was thoughtfully decorate and laid out and had everythign we...

This is a fantastic B&B - Sue and Gerry were very welcoming. The entire B&B was immaculate and beautifully decorated. We stayed in No 6 - the Montana, although compact and bijou it was perfect in every way. The first night we drank our G&T from our tea cups, and the second day we were presented with a silver tray...

We stayed at Compston House for our honeymoon and could not have chosen a better treat to start our married life together. From the moment you walk through the door and meet Sue and Jerry, you're already mentally planning when to go back! It's really no wonder that Compston House has won (and will continue to win) numerous breakfast awards....

We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013 in the Texas room. The room had everything we wanted, even a hair dryer (typical on the one occasion I had actually remembered to bring mine!). The room was a good size for the two of us, with a comfortable great big bed. I loved the little touches - the neckerchief...

Stayed here for 3 nights in the Texas room in July 2013. The Room: Decent size for the price, kept on banging my leg against the large bed, maybe too much furniture for the size. There were plenty of spaces for hanging your clothes and 6 drawers, I would suggest that the cleaners look underneath the drawer liners everytime they...

We're pleased these guests enjoyed our award winning breakfast, and made good use of the free, money-saving parking permit we provided. These guests stayed during the heat wave....it hasn't been that warm since 2006. Yes, Ambleside and the rest of England were a bit warm. We're sorry it was sunny and warm all week, but this was beyond our control!...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently, and had a wonderful time. The room (Maine) was spacious and airy, and had a good view out over the village green. The ensuite was a little cozy but big enough for our needs. The breakfast was amazing, and the standard never dropped throughout our stay. The service was great, and Jerry and...

The point of difference for this B&B is the potentially huge breakfast and the inclusion of pancakes on the menu. However if you don't choose the UK or US Breakfast combinations, and prefer just cereal or yoghurt and fruit, the servings are fairly small - it is not self serve. Other than that it is as good as many other...

We always receive top marks from guests about our award winning breakfasts, whether they choose a full breakfast, a lighter option, or something in between. It's a shame that these guests seemed confused about breakfast. Breakfast is not self-serve. Our food is cooked fresh to order, and guests can order a full breakfast, any part of a breakfast, or any...

We booked this lovely place in the centre of Ambleside rather late. Both Sue and Jerry were very welcoming and helpful in everything we needed. Breakfast is very hearty and varied and served with a warm smile. Both proprietors are very accommodating for any requests at breakfast too. The place is a walking distance from the centre of Ambleside. It...
