Stayed for two nights last week (end November). Visited before and cannot over emphasise how good this place is. Steve and Jeanette were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are first class and contain everything necessary and more! An excellent breakfast was served in the dining room where the Christmas decorations were really special. Fantastic value...

We were greeted with a warm welcome as we returned to Ambleside - this time a family of four. Steve & Jeanette are great, honest, down-to-earth hosts with a beautiful property in a perfect location. The rooms were excellent and the breakfasts even better (get the scrambled egg). Unlike some other b&b's, you get the feeling that they are genuinely...

After a long drive from London, we received such a warm welcome in this B&B. My first impression of the room was it was really cute! The place is very well looked-after and the owners will spoil you rotten! Breakfast spot on each morning, and Jeannette baked an amazing chocolate cake -- that was gluten free! We were also a...

This is the best B&B in Ambleside. Right in the town centre, beautifully furnished and a fantastic breakfast. However what makes it so great is Steve and Jeanette. They really are the perfect hosts in every way and make your stay feel special. Thank you so much x. Ps Jeanette makes the most amazing chocolate cake!

You will see virtually everyone on here has given 5 stars, for very good reason. Owners are so friendly, accommodating serving great cakes and drink on arrival, and being flexible around room cleaning and breakfasts. Well done Steve and Jeanette.

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights 12-15 September and couldn't have asked for better weather. We found Steve and Jeanette to be a very welcoming couple - we very quickly felt at home. We had a triple room which was nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and bedding. The house is spotless and the hosts are very proud...

Fantastic B&B, perfect location, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Jeanette and Stephen are great hosts - welcoming, helpful and friendly. We stayed for two nights in rooms 1&2 with our two teenage children. Beautifully decorated with everything you could need. Beds where extremely comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. Advice given on walks, things to do and restaurants.
