We spent three nights here at the end of April and our only regret was leaving. Very comfortable room and lovely breakfast. The gardens and surrounding views are stunning. It's an easy walk into Ambleside and longer walks up Loughrigg Fell and to Grasmere are very enjoyable. No need for a car unless you want to explore further afield. Baby...

John is a perfect host and he and his family run this guest house to a very high standard. Charming house and extremely well maintained with some very nice touches. Gorgeous scenic views. Enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast. John put himself out and dropped us off at Windermere railway station. We will have no hesitation recommending Crow How to our friends...

We had a delightful 3 night stay here in April and loved every minute. The room, the food, cleanliness, and the helpfulness of the owners and staff were unbelievable, nothing was too much trouble. The bathroom also had Pure Lake products, which I am now a fan! Will definitely be back.

John and his family have thought of everything you could need and deliver it in a beautiful house in a lovely and scenic quiet location. The superb breakfast will set you up for the day! As a bonus, there are some excellent walks you can start right from the house without having to get in your car first. Crow How...

We are frequent visitors to the Crow How. A great, old farm house in a stunning location (maximum 15 minute walk into Ambleside centre). We have stayed in a number of the rooms and always comment on how spotless they are, whilst retaining the character that the property deserves. The beds are so comfortable. Breakfast service is very efficient and...

Just returned from our weekend break at Crow How. A thoroughly relaxing break. Fabulously big room we didn't want to leave it! Everything was immaculate and well deserving of the 4 star rating. Excellent breakfast didn't need to eat the rest of the day. It's a pity the weather wasn't kinder but I guess that's why it's full of lakes!!!

Our room was spotless, very roomy, comfortable with a ginormous bed! Breakfasts were fantastic, loads of choice and beautifully cooked. Friendly, welcoming staff. Highly recommended. Easy walk into Ambleside or no time in a taxi.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in a stunning rural setting in the historic Rydal Valley amidst the fells, this grand Victorian building was built as a farm house in 1848 from the stones of ancient Rydal Hall, before being converted into a Country Guest House in the early 1930's. Set in our own 2 acre gardens Crow How has been sympathetically renovated to provide you with a perfect base to explore the beautiful Lake District. ... more   less
